Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TOKYO:4502) (NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today announced the completion of its previously-announced sale of Takeda Consumer Healthcare Company Limited (“TCHC”) to Oscar A-Co KK, a company controlled by funds managed by The Blackstone Group Inc. and its affiliates (collectively “Blackstone”) for a total value of JPY 242.0 billion1. This divestment agreement was first announced in August 2020.
Following the transfer of shares, TCHC will be excluded from the scope of consolidation of Takeda2, and operates as Alinamin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd (“Alinamin Pharmaceuticals”).
The divested portfolio included a variety of over-the-counter (“OTC”) medicines and health products that generated total revenues of over JPY 60.0 billion in fiscal year 2019. TCHC’s strong regional brands included Alinamin, its top selling product and Japan’s first vitamin B1 preparation, and Benza, a cold remedy. Takeda is confident that under Blackstone, Alinamin Pharmaceuticals will be well-positioned to continue growing and developing its product offerings in the years to come to address the evolving needs of consumers.
