PATTERSON, N.Y., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Penwest Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: PPCO) ("Penwest") today announces its intention to strike the shares of its common stock from listing and registration on The NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ"). Penwest intends to take this action in connection with the anticipated merger (the "Merger") of West Acquisition Corp. ("Merger Sub"), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Endo Pharmaceuticals Holdings Inc. ("Endo") (Nasdaq: ENDP), with and into Penwest pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger among Penwest, Merger Sub and Endo, dated August 9, 2010.
