SK Capital To Buy Perrigo's Active Pharma Ingredients Business

SK Capital, a private investment firm focused on the specialty materials, chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors, said that it agreed to acquire Perrigo API, Perrigo Company plc's (PRGO) active pharmaceutical ingredients business.

As part of the transaction, the parties have agreed to enter into a long-term supply agreement for Perrigo API to supply multiple existing commercial and pipeline APIs to Perrigo. The transaction is expected to close during the fourth-quarter 2017, before which a new trade name will be selected and announced for the Business.

As part of Perrigo API's renewed strategic vision to become an independent, high quality API supplier of choice for the generic pharmaceutical industry, four highly-experienced Israeli pharmaceutical executives will be joining the Board of Directors of the Business in partnership with SK Capital.
