The Old Irish Shuffle Play

A bit of financial wheeling and dealing occurred last week, as Altan Pharma Limited, a privately held pharmaceutical company based in Dublin, Ireland, announced its acquisition of Madrid-based GES Group, which is comprised of GES Genéricos Españoles Laboratorio; Genfarma Laboratorio, S.L. and Biomendi, S.A.U. The price was €87.5 million ($98.3 million, approximately). What the announcement left out was that, on the same day, Dublin-based Malin plc invested €34.5 million ($38.9 million, approximately) to gain a 65% equity stake in Altan Pharma. While Altan is a central player to these transactions, it lacks a website, as well as a corporate address. But now it owns GES Group, which develops, manufactures and markets specialty injectable drugs with an international distribution business. Time to get cracking on a corporate image.
