06:00 EDTAZNAstraZeneca announces sale of Alderley Park, to take impairment charges
AstraZeneca announced the sale of its Alderley Park site in Cheshire, U.K., to Manchester Science Parks, a Greater Manchester based public-private partnership and science park operator. The sale is part of AstraZeneca’s plan, set out in March 2013, to establish a new global R&D centre and corporate headquarters in Cambridge, U.K., in 2016. AstraZeneca will take pre-tax impairment charges of $275M to non-core R&D expense in 1Q14. This forms part of the costs associated with the footprint changes announced in March 2013.AstraZeneca expects to complete the sale by end of March 2014 and will remain a key tenant on the site. The handover of the site will be phased over a three year period, with the full exit of AstraZeneca R&D staff to take place in line with the completion of the company’s new facility in Cambridge.
