    CEO must buy AMRN -Amarin to score over GSK rival.

    "We will be open to more disruptive acquisitions, larger acquisitions if they make sense," Soriot told reporters.

    But he added: "You have to consider the likelihood of that is lower because I don't think we need a large-scale acquisition to succeed."

    Soriot said any deals he struck would complement increased investment in five existing growth areas - the new heart drug Brilinta, emerging markets, diabetes care, respiratory medicine and Japan.

    Faced with loss of exclusivity on once best-selling medicines and a thin pipeline of new drugs, AstraZeneca needs to consider bold moves to get back on its feet.
