UK Fine For Pfizer/Flynn’s ‘Excessive And Unfair’ Pricing Sends Clear Message To Others

Executive Summary

The UK competition authority has fined Pfizer and Flynn Pharma a total of £90m for charging “excessive and unfair” prices for phenytoin sodium capsules; Pfizer has said it will appeal. With an earlier CMA decision to impose a hefty fine on GlaxoSmithKline for its part in a pay-for-delay deal, companies should pay careful consideration to any competition issues raised by their pricing strategies for marketed drugs.
