Exiting Generics

Executive Summary

Just a couple of years ago, generics were all the rage in pharmaceutical development programs. Big pharma companies scrambled for ways to create generics franchises that would enable them to offer a broad array of products to managed care customers. But now, with HMR's sale of its Rugby-Darby Group to Watson Pharmaceuticals, we seem to be in the midst of a major bail out. It's now clear that the smartest generics strategy is a no-generics strategy.
