This involved a major restructuring exercise which was finally completed in November 2008. The result is a much leaner and competitive organization well positioned to deliver superior results.
We thank our employees affected by the program for their numerous contributions over the years. Payments under the program are included in the exceptional items reported in the results.
Our focus has shifted to identifying, training and developing future leaders for MON. Employees remain our most valuable asset and investing in them reinforces our competitive advantage.
