Aurobindo Pharma eyes Teva's UK & Irish portfolios

Aurobindo Pharma is very much in the race to acquire the UK and Irish portfolio of Teva, the Israeli generics giant. Both Aurobindo Pharma and Intas, the other contender, have bid for the stake, offering around $1 billion along with firm financing commitments.

Shares of Aurobindo Pharma Limited started off on a firm note this morning, rising to Rs 798.10, but changed track soon and are currently down by about half a percent at Rs 785.50. From a 52-week high of Rs 891.50 it had touched in late December 2015, the stock declined to Rs 582 by end February 2016,

The Israeli firm is selling assets in order to comply with the anti-trust regulations for its acquistion of Allergan Plc's generics business. In a spate of small deals earlier this yar, Teva had divested around 80 products in the U.S. to some big pharma players, including to Indian companies Cipla, Aurobindo Pharma and Dr Reddy's Laboratories. Australian drug firm Mayne acquired products for a consideration of over $650 million.

Aurobindo Pharma had reported surprisingly buoyant results for the June quarter. It reported a near 13% jump in sales, despite the sale of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients rising just 1.6%.
