"We are excited by our May 2019 acquisition of viral vector developer and manufacturer Paragon Bioservices, which has already begun to accelerate Catalent's financial growth, as well as our agreement to purchase Bristol-Myers Squibb's oral solid and biologics manufacturing and packaging facilities in Anagni, Italy."
