FTC final order issued for Perrigo’s acquisition of Paddock Labs

 |  June 26, 2012

The Federal Trade Commission has issued a modified final order settling charges related to Perrigo’s acquisition of Paddock Laboratories. The FTC alleged that the deal would have reduced the number of manufacturers for ammonium lactate cream and lotion, ciclopirox shampoo, and promethazine suppositories. These products are used for conditions such as dry skin and motion sickness. The acquisition would have also eliminated future competition for two generic testosterone gel products used as anti-inflammatories.

To resolve the FTC’s charges, Perrigo and Paddock agreed to sell the six generic drugs to Watson Pharmaceuticals.
