Allergan Needs to Sell off the Breast Implant Business

Saunders needs to save face and sell off the breast implant business. Losing CE mark in Europe has killed the business, down 75% last quarter and 30% overall in the quarter. FY wasn't much better, declining 2%. The business is a drag on Medical Aesthetics and the other brands shouldn't suffer because of this crappy business.

Don't forget sales reps leaving because they see the writing on the wall.

The problem is with Allergan's texture, not with their competitors. That's why only Allergan lost their CE mark & their competitors didn't. Also, nearly 90% of BIA-ALCL cases in Canada were attributed to Allergan textured implants, despite Mentor & Allergan splitting market share in Canada. That's why Canada banned only Allergan textured implants.

Allergan should definitely selloff their breast implant business now as they are now going to come with a boxed warning.

Allergan is voluntarily recalling Biocell textured breast implants in Canada.

Add the U.S. to list of countries that Allergan has "voluntarily" recalled their Biocell implants from.

NO, it's not "voluntary". The Canadian government suspended the license of Allergan's Biocell product. Big difference there buddy.

Mentor sells textured breast implants. If there's a ban on textured implants, it should be for all companies and not just Allergan.

Allergan lost their CE mark for textured breast implants, that's not something you bounce back from. The European Union is far more respected and powerful than the FDA. The new Medical Device Regulations taking effect in the EU put the FDA to shame. Also Canada and France specifically banned Allergan textured implants due to the overwhelming data and evidence of BIA-ALCL.

The FDA is merely a rubber stamp for corporations, they don't care about patient safety.

The rumors of textured breast implants being banned due to safety concerns was nothing more than noise as the FDA has decided they will not ban them. On May 2nd, the FDA said there was not enough evidence of an association with anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. Other countries have banned them but the FDA still stands as the most respected entity when compared to other countries regulatory agencies.

"At this time, the FDA does not believe that, on the basis of all available data and information, the device meets the banning standard set forth in the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act," the FDA said.

The point was that Allergan may try to sell their breast implant business, which brings in only $400 million in annual revenue, but is facing hundreds of millions of dollars & euros in future liabilities as hundreds of women globally with textured implants are suing Allergan. Allergan is most likely going to be stuck with the breast implant business because nobody in their right mind is going to buy it.

All of a sudden, the entire breast implant industry is going down the drain. Fortunately it will eventually lead to better and safer products. How long before it happens though?

Depending on Allergan's IP and pipeline, someone could pick up the business on the cheap knowing that Allergan would be the one responsible for any liabilities incurred from these recent lawsuits. It could look like a genius move 5 years from now.

Canada is suspending the licenses for Biocell after there were 28 confirmed cases of ALCL and 86% of the cases involved Biocell.

You're cherry picking with your argument. If you are going to compare JNJ then you need to include all of Allergan's business. Search for Botox and get back to me. They have plenty of money.

JNJ is a giant corporation with over $80 billion in yearly sales. Allergan's breast implant business barely cracks $400 million in yearly sales. Big difference there.

Also, Allergan is the only breast implant manufacturer whose CE mark was suspended for textured implants, and the only manufacturer called out by the French government for a ban in Europe.
