05:35 EDTVRX, NSRGY, LRLCYNestle creates Nestle Skin Health with acquisition of Valeant assets for $1.4B
Nestlé (NSRGY) announced it would extend its activities to include the field of specialized medical skin treatments through the creation of Nestlé Skin Health S.A. The foundation for the company would be Galderma, the 50/50 joint venture with L'Oreal (LRLCY), which would become fully-owned by Nestlé. Bübchen, the company's existing infant skin care business would be merged into the new entity. The acquisition of Galderma is awaiting final regulatory clearance. Nestlé is announcing it will reinforce Nestlé Skin Health with the acquisition from the Canadian firm Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) of the full rights to commercialize several key aesthetic dermatology products in the U.S. and Canada for $1.4B in cash. The two markets together represent more than half of the fast-growing medical aesthetics market around the world. Galderma already commercializes the products included in this transaction outside those markets. Nestlé is acquiring the full rights to commercialize in the U.S. and Canada Restylane, Perlane and Emervel, products used for corrective facial aesthetic treatments, and Dysport, an aesthetic dermatology treatment. It will also acquire the full rights to Sculptra, a unique treatment for aesthetic and medical uses in the U.S., Canada and many markets around the world.

09:32 EDTVRXValeant says cannot justify paying $219 per share for Allergan
Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) commented on the announcement that Allergan (AGN) and Actavis (ACT) have entered into a definitive agreement under which Actavis will acquire all outstanding shares of Allergan stock: "We have seen the announcement that Allergan and Actavis have made, and while we will review any such agreement in determining our course of action, Valeant cannot justify to its own shareholders paying a price of $219 or more per share for Allergan. Our business is performing extremely well as evidenced by our third quarter results, our expected strong fourth quarter, and our robust outlook for 2015, and I am confident in our continued ability to generate exceptional shareholder value. We will remain focused on delivering strong organic results and evaluating acquisition opportunities as we always have: prudently, in a disciplined manner, and in the best interests of our shareholders."
