On July 1, 2014, Actavis completed the acquisition of Forest Laboratories, creating one of the world’s fastest-growing specialty pharmaceutical companies. As a combined company, Actavis and Forest will invest more than $1 billion annually in the development of distinctive brand and generic products. This commitment is driven by one of the strongest development-focused R&D organizations in the industry, with an emphasis on strategic, innovative development of important durable products that will drive long-term value, and on being the partner of choice for new and existing development collaborations.
