The transaction adds OFIRMEV® (acetaminophen) injection, a high-growth, differentiated pain product, to Mallinckrodt’s growing roster of brands and its robust Specialty Pharmaceuticals portfolio of core controlled substance specialty generics. OFIRMEV also provides Mallinckrodt with an expanded presence in the U.S. hospital channel.
“We are excited by the opportunities provided by OFIRMEV, which will significantly expand Mallinckrodt’s ability to serve U.S. hospitals,” said Mark Trudeau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mallinckrodt. “As anticipated, the transaction was straightforward, closed quickly, and we are planning for a rapid and successful integration which we expect to be completed by the beginning of September. We believe this accelerated integration will provide greater clarity and direction for the employees joining us, and ensure that the merger of OFIRMEV and the transition of the hospital team into Mallinckrodt is smooth and best serves our customers.”
