最新消息,辉瑞普强(Upjohn)和迈蓝(Mylan)宣布合并的公司名为Viatris(发音为‘viǝ-trīs)。预计在2020年中完成交易,届时仿制药巨头将以Viatris名字出现。

2019年7月29日,迈蓝和辉瑞宣布了以下最终协议:将迈蓝与辉瑞旗下专利到期品牌和仿制药业务部门—普强合并,以创建一家新的全球制药公司。根据结构为全股票、反向莫里斯信托交易的协议条款,每股迈蓝股票将转换成新公司的一股股票。辉瑞股东将拥有合并后新公司57%的股份,而迈蓝股东将拥有43%的股份。通过将两个高度互补的业务的结合,新公司将转型并加快各自业务满足患者需求的业务能力,扩展他们在超过165个市场的能力。

迈蓝为各个关键治疗领域,如中枢神经系统和麻醉、传染病和心血管疾病带来多元化的产品组合,以及强大的产品管线、高质量的制造与供应链优势。

普强则带来了值得信赖的标志性品牌,如立普妥(阿托伐他汀钙)、西乐葆(塞来昔布)和万艾可(西地那非)等,以及业经证明的商业化能力,包括在中国和其他新兴市场的领导地位。

此次交易将使新公司显著扩展迈蓝现有广泛产品组合的区域覆盖范围和未来产品管线——包括在复杂仿制药和生物类似药方面对普强目前拥有销售基础设施和当地市场专业经验的新增长市场进行重大投资 。

HERTFORDSHIRE, England & PITTSBURGH & Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ: MYL) and Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) today announced that the name of the new company to be formed by the planned combination of Mylan and Upjohn, a division of Pfizer, will be Viatris (pronounced ‘viǝ-trīs).

Deriving its name from Latin, Viatris embodies the new company’s goal of providing a path—“VIA”—to three—“TRIS”—core goals: expanding access to medicines, leading by innovating to meet patient needs, and being a trusted partner for the healthcare community worldwide.

“We wanted a name that would differentiate our new company and clearly explain how we will be a champion for global health,” said Robert J. Coury, who will serve as Executive Chairman of the new company, as previously announced. “We are creating a company unlike any other – a company focused on building a more hopeful and sustainable healthcare journey, empowering patients to live healthier at every stage of life.”

“The name Viatris communicates the strength of our companies’ combined heritage and our shared goal to provide the highest-quality medicines to the most patients possible,” said Michael Goettler, Group President, Upjohn, who will serve as Chief Executive Officer of Viatris, as previously announced. “We have an opportunity to deliver better health, better care and better value for patients and partners around the world.”

Formed through a combination of two highly complementary businesses, Viatris will unite Upjohn’s strong leadership position in China and emerging markets with Mylan’s significant presence in the U.S. and Europe, allowing the new company to have a meaningfully expanded geographic reach for Viatris’ broad product portfolio and future pipeline.

It is expected that in the coming months, shareholders of Mylan will vote on the proposed combination of Mylan and Upjohn. More information regarding Viatris, including the company’s full executive management team, board of directors, stock symbol, and logo will be available at a later date.

Customers and patients will continue to be served by the Mylan and Upjohn brands for the near future. The new name will be effective upon closing of the combination, which is expected to occur in mid-2020. The two companies will continue to operate as independent, separate organizations until close.
