Perrigo pushes into Europe with Omega deal

Perrigo pushes into Europe with Omega deal

10 November 2014 - Deborah Wilkes

Perrigo is set to acquire Belgian OTC specialist Omega Pharma in a US$4.5 billion deal that it says will create a “top five global OTC player” with a strong presence in both Europe and North America.

Capitalising on cross-selling opportunities will be high on the agenda at the combined company, with Perrigo promising to take its US OTC store-brand portfolio into continental Europe and launch Omega’s products in the US, Mexico and Australia. Perrigo plans to make cost savings by bringing manufacturing of some Omega products in-house. It also has its eye on more bolt-on acquisitions.
