    Allergan will lay off 1,000 employees in effort to meet 2018 earnings goals

    Allergan PLC plans to lay off 1,000 employees and eliminate about 400 open positions in an effort to meet 2018 non-GAAP performance net income per share goals, according to a financial filing posted on Wednesday. Allergan expects the restructuring will save it $300 to $400 million and cost about $125 million, largely due to severance. Most of the $125 million in charges will be recorded in the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2017, the company said, and do not include possible building closures and contract terminations, among other things. Allergan warned about a restructuring in November, when it discussed the upcoming loss of exclusivity for many of its products, including its key dry eye drug Restasis, on a company conference call. If a generic Restasis was launched in 2018, the competition could bring 2018 non-GAAP performance net income per share down to $15 or $16, the company said, though it didn't provide specific 2018 guidance. Allergan shares were up 0.8% in moderate midday trade on Wednesday. Shares have dropped 18% over the last three months, compared with a 6.6% rise in the S&P 500 and a 9.6% rise in the Dow Jones Industrial Average .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    UPDATE: Revance stock surges and Allergan drops on positive results for wrinkle injection

    Revance Therapeutics Inc. shares surged nearly 38% in extremely heavy morning trade Tuesday after the company reported positive results for its wrinkle-relaxing injection in two late-stage clinical trials. If approved, the product, DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002), would be the first of its kind to last six months. Products currently on the market, including Allergan's market-leading Botox, last three to four months. Allergan shares dropped 3.2% in extremely heavy morning trade on Tuesday. In two trials, Revance's product showed highly statistically significant improvement relative to the placebo in reducing frown lines or wrinkles between eyebrows. The product is also being tested in a long-term safety trial, with results expected in the second half of next year; if the trial is successfully completed, Revance expects to file for approval in the first half of 2019 and, if it's approved, launch the product in the U.S. in 2020. Botox has been a wildly profitable product for Allergan, since patients largely pay out-of-pocket for it, and analysts have noted that new rivals could pose a long-term risk for the company. Revance's latest data are "better than their Ph 2 on several metrics," said EvercoreISI analyst Umer Raffat. But, with regard to being able to claim six months of effectiveness, Raffat said, "I think there's a case to be made for that, but that's not a layup." Raffat also noted that the product would likely be priced higher than Botox. In a statement to MarketWatch, Allergan called the Revance results "underwhelming." "Allergan does not expect Revance's toxin to enter the market until mid-2020, and we do not believe this data will support a longer duration claim," a company spokesperson said, adding that "based on the profile demonstrated in this data, Allergan does not view this toxin as being differentiated from Botox." Revance shares have surged 45.5% over the last three months to $35.80, compared with a 7.4% rise in the S&P 500 and a 11.7% rise in the Dow Jones Industrial Average .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
