Hikma Pharma To Acquire Assets Of Bedford Laboratories - Quick Facts

Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC (HIK.L, HKMPY.PK) announced that it has signed an asset purchase agreement with Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc., a member of the Boehringer Ingelheim Group of Companies, to acquire assets of Bedford Laboratories, its US generic injectables business, for a total consideration of up to $300 million, which will be satisfied through an upfront cash payment of $225 million. A further $75 million in contingent cash payments will be paid, subject to the achievement of performance-related milestones, over a period of five years, Hikma said.

Hikma is acquiring Bedford's assets, including a large product portfolio, intellectual property rights, contracts for products marketed under license, raw material inventories, R&D and business development pipeline and a number of employees across key business functions.

Hikma has entered into an exclusivity arrangement with the Boehringer Ingelheim Group to potentially acquire substantially all of the assets of the Ben Venue manufacturing facility in Bedford, Ohio.

Hikma said the acqusition would be slightly dilutive to adjusted earnings per share in 2014 and 2015, with strong EPS accretion thereafter as the acquired products are re-introduced to the market.
