Medius Deal Watch: September-October 2018

There was much speculation last year that the US tax cuts that favoured the pharmaceutical companies would herald a buying spree on the part of the beneficiaries. We were advised to stand by for a tsunami of acquisitions by US pharmaceutical companies. As we have written in previous issues of Deal Watch, Medius did not expect that this would materialise, and we stated that the early indicators showed that acquisition activity was down in 2018, not up. Not only have we still not seen any major acquisitions, but at its 3rd quarter earnings call recently, Pfizer’s incoming CEO, Albert Bourla, stated that he continued not to see the need for any large scale M&A at this time. So we are not expecting any mega‐mergers any time soon from Pfizer, or indeed from anyone else.
