Apotex Deferred Prosecution Agreement

by on Dec.03, 2020, under Uncategorized

Last summer, the DOJ officially announced that it would allow prosecutors to resolve criminal investigations with data protection authorities in some cases. [6] The DOJ`s Cartel Department stated that “prosecutors may act through a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) where relevant actors, including the adequacy and effectiveness of the company`s compliance program, demonstrate this.” [7] The agreement follows three other such agreements with generic drug manufacturers and three guilty pleas by generic drug industry leaders, as a result of a sectoral investigation that precedes it, according to the Department of Justice. Another industry exec, who is facing a charge, is awaiting trial. In this newsletter, as part of our ongoing series on Canada`s Deferred Prosecution Agreement (“DPA”), we are once again waiting for the United States for possible improvements to Canada`s DPA program. Weston, FL, May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – Apotex Corp. has reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice`s (DOJ) Antitrust Department on years of antitrust investigation into the U.S. generic drug industry. The fine relates to the sale of a single product by Apotex Corp., which agreed to pay $24.1 million under the resolution and will enter into a Deferred Order Maintenance Agreement (DPA). Subject to the conditions set by the Data Protection Authority, we believe that the issue concerning Apotex Corp. will be resolved in its entirety.

The Cartel Department also announced an adjourned Prosecution Agreement (DPA) for the indictment of Apotex. The company agreed to pay a US$24.1 million fine and admit that it conspired with other generic drug sellers to artificially increase the price of pravastatin. The only counting accuses Apotex of having communicated with competitors about the price increase and then of having given up offering competitive offers to customers who had previously purchased Pravastatin from a competing company. As part of the data protection authority, Apotex has agreed to cooperate fully with the ongoing criminal investigations conducted by the Cartel Department. As part of the agreement, the parties will file a joint application, subject to the Tribunal`s agreement, to delay the duration of the CCA to pursue and pursue the charges against the defendant. It is one of the latest developments in an ongoing investigation into more than 20 of the country`s generic drug manufacturers. The sector fuelled mistrust when observers saw, for the most part, both an abnormal and upsetting rise in generic drug prices. Prices have doubled, tripled and, in some cases, increased by almost 1000%, which has raised serious concerns among buyers and opened the sector to the survey.
