Pfizer’s sales lag rivals as generics bite

first_img DRUGS giant Pfizer yesterday reported disappointing sales, hurt by generic competition for its Lipitor cholesterol fighter and Effexor XR depression drug as well as weak revenue in emerging markets.The last of the large US drugmakers to report third-quarter earnings, Pfizer followed the example of most rivals with higher-than-expected profits – largely from cost cuts – but disappointing sales as it faces patent expirations on some of its top-selling products.“Generic competition is causing pain, and this is just a taste of what Pfizer will be going through in the next few years,” said Morningstar analyst Damien Conover.The world’ largest drugmaker said global sales of Lipitor dropped 11 per cent to $2.53bn in the quarter. The arrival in recent months of Lipitor generics in Canada and Spain hurt the world’s top-selling medicine.The bigger threat to Pfizer comes in November 2011, when Lipitor loses US marketing exclusivity. Pfizer bought Wyeth last year for $67bn, aiming to replace vanishing Lipitor revenue with the US rival’s brands.Effexor XR, a Wyeth anti-depressant that once had annual sales of $3bn, was battered by cheaper US generic versions launched over the summer. Sales of the pill plunged to $175m in the third quarter.“As with the rest of the industry, patent losses are hurting the bottom line, and it’s always especially tricky to gauge the real magnitude of patent erosion in overseas markets,” Conover said.Pfizer is also counting heavily on fast-growing emerging markets to bolster results in coming years. But its sales in those markets, excluding the Wyeth brands, were essentially flat in the quarter. The company’s earnings fell to $866m, or 11 cents per share, from $2.88bn, or 43 cents, a year earlier. Excluding merger costs and other special items, Pfizer earned 54 cents per share.

NL Minister pledges fast-track reporting system to combat match-fixing

first_imgAn upcoming strategic consultation on match-fixing will outline the fast-track system further. As a result, the Dutch government held a meeting with sporting federations, at which it was agreed that the fast-track system would be set up, in order to allow potentially suspicious activity to reach these bodies as soon as possible. NL Minister pledges fast-track reporting system to combat match-fixing In the wake of MPs querying the impact of confidentiality protocols included in the legislation, Dekker has introduced a new fast-track reporting system. This is designed to ensure suspicious activity alerts are flagged with relevant sporting bodies as soon as possible. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands 24th May 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility Sports betting Sports integrity Online sports betting Under the Act, all details relating to suspected money laundering must be reported to the country’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and otherwise not shared with anyone else. As match-fixing may involve laundered money, or form a part of a money-laundering scheme, this may include reports of match-fixing. However, in his responses, Dekker said this section of the Money Laundering Act would only be triggered in certain specific situations. Suspicious odds movements may still be reported to governing bodies, as would reports of match-fixing for non-betting purposes. Email Address The questions were raised by MPs Anne Kuik, Kees van der Staaij, Rudmer Heerema, Mirjam Bikker, Michiel van Nispen, Paul Van der Laan and Sidney Smeets, who has since resigned, in the wake of an article in the Dutch press. Dutch Minister for Legal Protection Sander Dekker has moved to allay concerns that the country’s Money Laundering Act will make it harder for sporting governing bodies to fight match fixing. However, he said, the laws may present an issue for reports of betting activity by participants in sporting events. Online sports betting is set to become legal in the Netherlands on 1 October, after the country’s Remote Gambling Act came into force on 1 April of this year, after a series of delays. Under the system, the FIU would mark any reports of match fixing as such, so that they could then also be sent to the relevant sporting governing body. As of mid-April, regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) said that 28 operators had applied for licences. Sports integrity Dekker also pointed out that a large amount of match-fixing for betting purposes may still go undetected, as it often occurs in unregulated markets in regions such as Asia. This claimed the Money Laundering Act, which will come into force this year, would efforts to fight match-fixing. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Brooklyn community demands justice for Kimani Gray, 16-year-old victim of NYC police killing

first_imgBrooklyn, N.Y., 10 p.m., Thursday, March 14.WW photo: ImaniNew York — The neighborhood of East Flatbush in Brooklyn has been rocked since the brutal slaying of 16-year-old African-American Kimani Gray by the police on the night of March 9. The details are still coming out, with the plainclothes cops who shot Gray and eyewitnesses offering differing accounts on whether the youth was armed or pleading for mercy.But even the New York Police Department admits that the cops shot Gray 11 times. The autopsy report released March 13 said the teenager was hit seven times, including by three bullets which entered his body while his back was turned away from the officers. (, March 13)Brooklyn, N.Y., March 13.This latest police killing comes at a time when the NYPD has been mercilessly pursuing its infamous “stop-and-frisk” policy. According to the New York Civil Liberties Union, in 2012, 87 percent of cop stops were of Black or Latino/a people and 9 out of 10 were innocent of any infractions. In the first six months of 2012 alone, cops, security guards and vigilantes killed 110 Black people in the United States, according to the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.The capitalist media were prepared to treat Gray as yet another statistic until a vigil on Monday night, March 11, took an especially militant turn. Rebellious protesters and community members liberated goods from businesses along Church Avenue and engaged in other extralegal tactics.Angry crowds increased the following nights. Groups with participants included Workers World Party, Red Youth and the New Black Panther Party. New York City Councilmember Charles Barron and others were in attendance as well.Until announced otherwise, there will be nightly demonstrations at East 52nd Street and Church Avenue in Brooklyn at 7 p.m. More details can be found on Facebook at the “We want Justice for Kimani Gray” event.Shallcross attended the nightly demonstration on March 13.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

What we’re reading: Shooting, suspensions and firings

first_img….Great bravery shown by police. California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times. That Sheriff’s Sergeant died in the hospital. God bless all of the victims and families of the victims. Thank you to Law Enforcement.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 8, 2018Acosta suspendedJim Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent’s press pass was suspended Wednesday.Acosta tweeted Wednesday night “I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”Sarah Sanders, White House press secretary, confirmed his suspension stating that the suspension stemmed from his interaction with a White House intern. According to Sanders, Acosta placed “his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job…” as he was in a heated debate with President Trump.CNN said in a statement Wednesday night Sanders “lied” in her explanation of the press pass suspension.“You’re fired.”Attorney General Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation Wednesday at the request of President Trump.Sessions’ resignation came only a day after the midterms, where the Republicans held onto control of the Senate. Trump’s distaste for Sessions, who was one of Trump’s earliest and most loyal supporters, was well known. The President mocked the attorney general on many occasions.Matthew Whitaker, Sessions’ Chief of Staff, will take over as acting attorney general. He will take charge of the Russian investigation and the special counsel Robert Mueller.Immigration DirectivePresident Trump will sign a directive this week that will revamp the asylum system here in the United States.This directive will require asylum seekers to make a claim for asylum at a point of entry on the border. Currently, migrants can enter the U.S. and have up to a year to request asylum. The Trump administration feels this change will use resources better and create a safer and more orderly process.According to administration officials, President Trump is expected to sign this directive Friday, before leaving for Paris.RecountFlorida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson called for a recount Wednesday in the race for his re-election against Republican Gov. Rick Scott.The incumbent in a statement said Scott declared victory prematurely.An automatic recount is triggered in Florida when the final margin is less than 0.5 percent. According to The New York Times, Scott leads by 0.4 percent with 100 percent of the precincts reporting.The vote count will not be finalized until Saturday at noon.Georgia’s governor raceRepublican Brian Kemp declared victory Wednesday in Georgia’s governor race. However, election officials are continuing to count absentee and provisional ballots, which narrow Kemp’s lead over Democrat Stacey Abrams.Abrams is confident she could have the votes to force a runoff election between the two candidates. Various voting rights advocates accused Kemp and various local officials of disenfranchising thousands of voters on Tuesday. There were hundreds of complaints about long lines, broken equipment and a shortage of voting machines. As of Wednesday evening, Kemp was head with 50.3 percent of the vote compared to Abram’s 48.7 percent. This means Abrams and the Libertarian candidate would need to receive at least 25,000 votes more than Kemp to bring his percentage of the vote to below 50 percent and trigger a runoff.Conway defends President TrumpKellyanne Conway, the White House counselor, defended President Trump Wednesday for calling a black reporter’s question “racist”.The reporter asked President Trump during his post-midterm news conference about his self-professed nationalism.Conway said on “PBS NewsHour” Wednesday night that “there’s a difference between nationalism and white nationalism.” Facebook Linkedin Alexa Hines Tunnel of Oppression highlights different groups, encourages change Seniors react to postponing May Commencement Facebook Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Alumnus to reopen local bar Alexa Hines What we’re reading: Chauvin found guilty in Floyd case, Xi to attend Biden’s climate change summit Alexa Hines Breaking barriers: Trailblazing women in sports media Alexa is the Audience Engagement Editor for TCU360.

A wary person, he fled just before the police came to his home to arrest him again. In June 2011, a military court sentenced him in absentia to 15 years on charges of conspiracy and participating in an attempted coup d’état.
