    • There is no such thing as a "Britisher" they have been conquered by the Muslims. They are gone.

    • This deal will work.
      Look at PFE deals going back to Warner Lambert that they got Lipitor. They get what they want and eventually pays up.

      PFE has close to $70-$80bn in bank accounts abroad. If they bring money home, they have to pay taxes. By buying a foreign company, they do not have to pay taxes but use the money.

      If they can have a base in the UK, they can probably lower the tax rate going forward, which is one of teh highest of big pharma.

      Cost savings buying AZN will be enormous

      AZN is vulnerable now. They have a poor pipeline and few months ago appointed a new CEO.

      US/UK have friendly relations. They will not stop this on job losses.

      Expect a deal around $90-$95.

      • The New CEO took over in October 2012. As for UK stopping the merger, I do not know how they plan to do that. AZ has been scaling back for awhile. I was effected in 2013. They once had 70,000 employees, that is know is the 40,000 range. The US HQ is a ghost of its former self and most of what is left is moving to MD or elsewhere. The days of big pharma are over.
