Abbott Completes Acquisition of Piramal's Healthcare Solutions Business, Becomes Leading Pharmaceutical Company in India
Date:9/8/2010

India's rapid pharmaceutical market growth is being driven largely by branded generics. The market will generate nearly $8 billion in pharmaceutical sales this year, a number that is expected to more than double by 2015. Abbott expects its pharmaceutical sales in India to exceed $2.5 billion by 2020.

Piramal's Healthcare Solutions business has a comprehensive portfolio of branded generics, including market-leading brands in multiple therapeutic areas, including antibiotics, respiratory, cardiovascular, pain and neuroscience.

The Healthcare Solutions business will operate as a separate business unit, reporting into Abbott's newly-created Established Products Division (EPD), which was formed to focus on branded generics, maximizing the opportunity in emerging markets. The business will continue to be led by its current India-based management team.  

"Piramal's proven business model in India and experienced local leadership team, combined with the global resources of Abbott, will allow us to build upon Piramal's commitment to quality and service," said Michael J. Warmuth, senior vice president, Established Products, Pharmaceutical Products Group, Abbott.

Abbott now employs approximately 10,000 people across all of its businesses in India.  

Abbott, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, purchased the assets of Piramal's Healthcare Solutions business for a $2.2 billion up-front payment with additional payments of $400 million annually for the next four years, beginning in 2011. This transaction will not impact Abbott's ongoing earnings per share guidance in 2010.
