In an interview broadcast on CNBC after the drug and chemicals giant released its first-quarter earnings, Marijn Dekkers, chief executive of Bayer said, “I don’t want to speculate on portfolio changes.” Bloomberg News reported Monday that Bayer is considering selling off the material sciences unit — which produces plastics, coatings and chemicals used in foams, insulation, auto lights and DVDs — because it wants to focus on expanding its health care business.
