FAIRFIELD, N.J., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Medimetriks Pharmaceuticals announced today that the Company has entered into a Distributor Agreement with Perrigo Company (Nasdaq: PRGO), a leading manufacturer in the generic prescription marketplace, designating Perrigo as the Exclusive Authorized Distributor of generic versions of Medimetriks' branded products in the U.S. The agreement calls for Medimetriks to receive a percentage of Perrigo's Net Sales on the non-branded products, allowing Medimetriks to maximize its investment in its brands and maintain a revenue stream from the markets these brands create.

The agreement also includes future products launched by Medimetriks.

"Our agreement with Perrigo represents a strategic opportunity for Medimetriks to leverage our brand assets in the non-branded marketplace," stated Bradley Glassman, President and CEO of Medimetriks. "We are pleased to work with one of the world's leading healthcare manufacturers and generic marketers, with a particular expertise in the topical generic market."
