Executive Summary

Divestiture of one overlapping consumer brand marketed in the U.S. required to receive Federal Trade Commission approval, Pfizer announces. Although the company declined to specifically name FTC's area of concern, it appears most likely Warner-Lambert's Nix and Pfizer's Rid pediculicides would need to be divested.

The closing is targeted for early to mid-June, according to Pfizer
