FRANKFURT, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Bayer is guiding investors to expect shares it is selling in separately listed chemicals subsidiary Covestro to price at 66.50 to 66.80 euros apiece, a source close to the matter said.
The books were covered throughout the range and investors offering to buy them for less risked missing the deal, the source said.
