Mallinckrodt plc , a leading specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that it has closed the sale of its global Nuclear Imaging business to IBA Molecular (IBAM) for approximately $690 million before tax, including up-front and contingent considerations and the assumption of long-term obligations.

Mallinckrodt's Nuclear Imaging operations encompass two manufacturing facilities and a total of more than 800 employees in locations across the globe, including nearly 350 in the St. Louis, Mo. area. The entire workforce and the manufacturing facilities have been transferred to IBAM.

Mallinckrodt's action to divest Nuclear Imaging continues the company's strategy to transform its portfolio with specialty pharmaceutical assets that are durable, innovative and have significant volume growth potential.

"The divestiture of our Nuclear Imaging business is another important step toward the evolution of our portfolio," said Mark Trudeau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mallinckrodt. "Our Nuclear Imaging business is an excellent strategic fit for the IBAM organization and we believe the expanded global reach of the combined business will enable IBAM to substantially increase its ability to meet the needs of patients around the world. With this transaction, we are pleased to welcome IBAM to the St. Louis area."

The total consideration of approximately $690 million (before tax) consists of approximately $574 million of up-front consideration, the assumption of approximately $39 million of long-term obligations, and approximately $77 million of contingent consideration.

Mallinckrodt's former Nuclear Imaging business includes a portfolio of diagnostic imaging products. The business is a prominent global producer of the key medical isotope molybdenum-99, from which technetium-99m (Tc-99m) is derived. Tc-99m is used in roughly 80%1 of all nuclear medicine procedures worldwide, and the business is a significant U.S. and global supplier of this radioisotope2.

Renaud Dehareng, Chief Executive Officer of IBAM, said, "We have created a new world-class nuclear imaging business. We have over 1,500 skilled employees across four continents, an unrivalled global manufacturing footprint comprising 21 leading-edge production facilities, a commercial presence in over 60 countries serving more than 6,000 customers and very complementary product portfolios and technical capabilities. Cumulatively, we have over 100 years of experience in nuclear medicine. All of this sets us apart and will allow us to deliver superior, sharply focused service to our customers reliably every day."
