08:05 EDTNVS, MYL, ACT, TEVATeva reaches settlement in NUVIGIL patent case
Teva (TEVA) announced that it has reached settlements with Sandoz (NVS), Actavis (ACT), Lupin and Apotex with respect to U.S. Patent 7,132,570 for Teva’s wakefulness product, NUVIGIL tablets. These settlements dismiss a pending appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit of a trial court decision that found the ‘570 patent to be valid and infringed. Teva has reached settlements with each of these companies, granting licenses to allow these parties to market their generic products 180 days after Mylan (MYL), the first generic company to file an abbreviated new drug application for the 50 mg, 150 mg, and 250 mg dosages of NUVIGIL. The settlements allow Actavis to launch generic 100 mg and 200 mg dosages in June 2016, and the others may launch these dosages 180 days after Actavis in the 100 mg and 200 mg dosage forms. Additional terms of the settlements are agreed by the parties to remain undisclosed. Previously, Teva settled its patent infringement litigation regarding the ‘570 patent against Mylan, which allowed Mylan to begin selling generic versions of 50 mg, 150 mg, and 250 mg NUVIGIL® under license beginning in June 2016, or earlier under certain circumstances.

18:38 EDTNVSNovartis CEO discusses drug pricing, paying doctors, Washington Post reports
Novartis CEO Joseph Jimenez said in an interview with the Washington Post, "Drug pricing is a very complicated topic because we invest in high-risk activity... So when we price a drug, we price it based on the value it will bring into that marketplace, and also how its price compares to the other therapies currently on the market. There's been a lot of discussion about drug pricing. What we have to do is we have to shift that conversation away from the price toward the value. Like, what exactly is the value of this drug that is going to result in a positive outcome? And is society willing to pay for that drug? At Novartis, we take a little bit of a different approach than our peers. Not only are we a large, innovative drug manufacturer, but we also are the second largest generics manufacturer... I also believe at Novartis that the day that patents expire, it's our obligation to offer a low-cost version in a generic form." Discussing the practice of drug companies paying doctors to prescribe particular drugs, Jiminez said, "It's unfortunate, because that's a situation where society's expectations have changed to the point where even doing what's legal is not doing what's right. What we have to do is, we have to find new ways to educate physicians about our new drugs... We're looking at ways digitally to communicate with physicians and at some new tools, so we can stay ahead of the curve. So rather than wait for regulations to change, Novartis can step back and say, 'We're going to do what society would expect us to do, not just do what's legal.'" Reference Link
15:24 EDTMYLMylan says Perrigo lawsuit 'without merit'
Mylan (MYL) believes that the Perrigo (PRGO) suit filed in Israel is entirely without merit and that Mylan's offer in Israel is valid and proper in all respects. With that said, Perrigo's efforts are entirely futile, as all Perrigo shareholders-institutional and retail, including those in Israel-have always been free to switch their holdings at any time from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange to the New York Stock Exchange, through a simple, fully automated, well-established system by notifying their broker. As a result, shareholders can participate fully in Mylan's compelling offer without regard to any lawsuits in Israel or any other frustrating actions pursued by Perrigo in Israel. Further, as Mylan has previously stated publicly, it has been its intent and desire to list Mylan's shares on the TASE to maintain liquidity in Israel for the convenience of those shareholders in Israel who prefer to trade on the TASE, and Mylan is already well-advanced in the process of submitting its application to the TASE and the Israel Securities Authority, and is committed to continuing to work closely with these parties to complete this process.

08:24 EDTMYLWeakness in drug stocks creates buying opportunities, says RBC Capital
After Hillary Clinton unveiled a plan to lower drug prices, RBC Capital does not expect the plan to be passed by Congress. The firm adds that the plan is positive for generic drug makers and could pressure the FDA to more quickly approve generic drug applications. RBC identifies Insys Therapeutics (IINSY), Endo (ENDP), and Sagent Pharma (SGNT) as three stocks it likes that have suffered "disproportionate selloffs over the last two days." The firm identifies Sagent, Emdo and Mylan (MYL) as three companies with high generic exposure that have sold off.

Mylan N.V. yesterday confirmed that on September 19, 2015 the Stichting Preferred Shares Mylan, an independent foundation incorporated under the laws of the Netherlands, requested cancellation of the preferred Mylan shares issued to the Foundation on July 23, 2015.

The Mylan Board of Directors will announce the shareholders meeting to approve the cancellation of the preferred shares in due course.
