South Africa’s Adcock Ingram to acquire Genop Holdings

JOHANNESBURG   – South African drugmaker Adcock Ingram will buy contact lenses, surgical and skincare products supplier Genop Holdings, it said on Tuesday, a deal that gives it a company with 400 million rand ($31 million) in annual sales.

Adcock did not disclose the financial details of the deal, which forms part of the strategy to cut its reliance on prescription drugs, whose prices are regulated.
