FRANKFURT/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Activist investor Elliott has taken a position in Germany's Bayer
Elliott has held shares in Bayer already for more than one year, two of the sources said, declining to specify the size of the stake.
The activist fund, owned by Paul Singer, declined to comment. Bayer did not have an immediate comment.
While Elliott has tried to talk to Bayer's top management, it has not been able to get a meeting with Bayer Chief Executive Werner Baumann or one of his colleagues, one of the sources said.
