Perrigo Trims Workforce, Ships Tysabri License, Stays European Course

This article was originally published in The Pink Sheet

Executive Summary

The firm is reducing its non-production workforce by 750, a decision made after three representatives of disgruntled investor Starboard Value joined its board. Perrigo charts a course of recovery for its struggling international consumer health business, but some analysts are convinced it took a wrong turn with its 2015 investment in European OTC drug and nutritional product businesses and brands.
