    Pfizer is in talks with Amarin

    Pfizer was happy when Amarin chose Lipitor for their study.Pfizer hopes that if they owned Vascepa,then they could revive some of Lipitor sales that Generics are capturing.
    Pfizer wants to keep part of 10 bil.$ sales for Lipitor. Their 4$ Co-Pay card is not successful to retain loyal customers as Caremark and others are charging far more for Lipitor vs.Generics.
    Co-pay for Lipitor can run into 105$ for 90 days supply compared to 10$ co pay for Generics.
    Apotech is offering Generic for FREE to get some business from Ranbaxy and Watson.
    So Pfizer is desperate.
    Bloomberg reported today and in April that Astra Zeneca may have an interest in Amarin or Amylin according to Anderson of Bernstein and co. Astra bought Amylin with BristolMyers.
    Bloomberg Radio said same thing today .

    Sentiment: Buy

    • Pfizer has always been a "party of interest" simple because there are some top people working for
      Amarin that also had high level ties to Pfizer but you need more then one interested party to get the best bid. I think this quiet period has some negotiations going on now. NCE alone just does not meet that standard to have a quiet period.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Not speculation-- Bloomberg Radio had similar comment--but they did not name the co.
      Pfizer 's Business develop. group person said that they are exploring "External opportunities".He did not say AMARIN.
      Astra Zeneca said,"They are interested in Diabeties,Cancer and Gastrointestinal medicines." I had enquired if they were interested in a Medical instrument co. in GI field.

    • Please clarify the Bloomberg radio, do you mean they are speculating Amarin has a buyer?
      thxs:)

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
