14:36 EDTLLYLilly to close Guayama facility, will take 16c charge in Q4
Eli Lilly announced plans to conclude production and pursue a sale of one of its three manufacturing plants in Puerto Rico. The manufacturing site, located in Guayama, Puerto Rico, will remain in operation until the end of 2015. All of the approximately 100 full-time non-contracted employees currently working in Guayama will be offered employment at Lilly's Carolina, Puerto Rico, location. As a result of this action, the company expects to record a charge of approximately $170M or approximately 16c per share, after tax, in Q414. While Lilly will initiate efforts to sell the Guayama site, the company will continue to invest in two manufacturing plants at Carolina. In November 2013, Lilly announced a $200M investment to increase capacity in its Carolina-based insulin active ingredient manufacturing plant. In July, Lilly announced an additional $40M in investments to increase capabilities at its Carolina-based drug product site as part of a rebalancing of Lilly's oral solid dosage network.
