Ipsen completes purchase of consumer healthcare products from Sanofi

12th May 2017

Ipsen has completed its previously-announced acquisition of five consumer healthcare products from Sanofi.

The 83 million euro (70.18 million pounds) deal is intended to facilitate Ipsen's transition towards a combined prescription/over-the-counter (OTx) business model, and will leverage the company's primary care infrastructure.

The most significant product in the portfolio is Prontalgine, an analgesic for the treatment of moderate to severe pain, which is sold exclusively in France. The deal also includes the antispasmodic therapy Buscopan, the laxative Suppositoria Glycerini, and the cough and flu expectorants Mucothiol and Mucodyne.

The company said: "This transaction strengthens the evolution of Ipsen's consumer healthcare portfolio in France and central Europe, with the strategic intent to further develop the OTx model in most geographies."

Ipsen and Sanofi agreed to this transaction in February as part of the European Commission's requirement for Sanofi to divest certain assets following its purchase of the consumer healthcare division of Boehringer Ingelheim.
