Pfizer announced that it has completed the sale of its nutrition business to Nestle for $11.85B in cash, following the conclusion of the required regulatory process in most markets.

"The completion of the sale of the Nutrition business to Nestle demonstrates our commitment to maximizing the value of our businesses and prudently managing capital. We remain focused on enhancing shareholder value, and our new $10B share repurchase program is now effective upon the completion of the sale and will be utilized over time," said CFO Frank D'Amelio.
