RE-ACET speculation- New ACET CEO is a pharma guy. IMO all the more reason to separate Generics from the rest of the company.

Published: Oct 17, 2017 7:47 a.m. ET

Impax Laboratories Inc.

Impax shareholders will own 25% of the new company's shares and Amneal Holdings member will own 75%. The companies said the new company will have the fifth largest generics business in the U.S. Impax's market capitalization was $1.48 billion at Monday's stock closing price. In connection with the deal, Amneal Holdings member have entered into private-placement agreements with TPG and Fidelity management & Research Co. to sell 46.8 million unregistered common shares at $18.25 a share. The companies expects annual synergies of $200 million within three years after the deal closes, which is expected in the first half of 2018. Separately, Impax affirmed its 2017 financial guidance.
