08:08 EDTPBHPrestige to divest assets to satisfy FTC conditions for Insight purchase
Pharmaceutical company Prestige Brands Holdings,the maker of Dramamine, has agreed to divest assets and marketing rights for the over-the-counter motion sickness drug Bonine to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that Prestige’s proposed acquisition of Insight Pharmaceuticals Corporation would likely be anticompetitive. The FTC’s proposed settlement with Prestige requires the company to divest Bonine to Wellspring Pharmaceuticals within 10 days after the acquisition takes place. According to the FTC’s complaint, Prestige’s Dramamine, which is the best-selling branded product in the market for over-the-counter motion-sickness drugs, and Insight’s Bonine, are the only two branded products with significant sales. Absent a remedy, the acquisition would eliminate the close competition between Dramamine and Bonine, likely leading to higher prices for consumers.
