Moberg Pharma completes acquisition of US OTC brands from Prestige Brands

Published 11 July 2016

On 30 June, Moberg Pharma announced the acquisition of three Over-The-Counter brands in the U.S. from Prestige Brands. The acquisition has now been completed. The purchase price amounted to $40 million.

The acquired portfolio includes New Skin, the #1 OTC liquid bandage brand in the U.S. It is an antiseptic which kills germs and dries rapidly to form a clear protective cover.

In addition to New Skin, the acquired portfolio also contains two mature brands, Fiber Choice and PediaCare.

Fiber Choice is focusing on digestive health with a compelling line up of product options for daily fiber supplementation. PediaCare has a strong equity amongst moms based on highly effective products for children, primarily within cough cold and analgesics segments.

The acquired brands will be sold through Moberg’s current OTC channel in the U.S, primarily in chain drugstores, such as CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid and in mass retailers, such as Walmart and Target.
