Read MoreHide Full Article

Ireland-based Mallinckrodt Public Limited Company focuses on developing treatments for autoimmune and rare diseases (including neurology, rheumatology, nephrology and pulmonology) as well as therapies for pain management.

The company develops, manufactures, markets and distributes both branded and specialty generic pharmaceuticals. The company reports in two segments: Specialty Brands, Specialty Generics and Nuclear Imaging. Mallinckrodt is currently focused on reshaping its product portfolio through strategic acquisitions and non-core asset divestitures. The company sold its Nuclear Imaging business owing to persistent macroeconomic challenges and Intrathecal Therapy business to focus on its key areas.

We expect investor focus on the performance of Acthar, Inomax and Ofirmev.
