Sanofi streamlines Consumer Healthcare portfolio in Latin America with divestiture of eight brands to Hypera Pharma
As part of Sanofi’s ongoing efforts to simplify its Consumer Healthcare portfolio and accelerate its growth trajectory, the company has signed an agreement with HYPERA S.A. (“Hypera Pharma”) for the divestiture of eight products commercialized in Latin America. The agreement also includes four prescription products from the General Medicine portfolio.
"As discussed during our Capital Markets Day in February, simplifying the CHC product portfolio is an important part of our strategy to focus our resources and efforts where we can bring the most value, especially to consumers. We are pleased these products will continue to be available for consumers as we focus on becoming a fully integrated standalone business” said Julie Van Ongevalle, Executive Vice-President, Sanofi and Head of Sanofi Consumer Healthcare.
Sanofi does not anticipate any impact of this divestiture to its Latin American-based workforce.
The transaction is expected to close at the end of 2021, subject to approval of relevant regulatory authorities and other customary closing conditions.
