Amarin Outlines $100M Cost Saving Plan

  • Amarin Corporation plc AMRN announced a comprehensive cost and organizational restructuring plan to reduce operating costs by approximately $100 million over the next 12 months.
  • The restructuring will enable Amarin to maintain a positive contribution margin in the U.S. while investing in its European market launches and global expansion for Vascepa/Vazkepa.
  • The majority of the cost savings will result from a significant workforce reduction across the Company's U.S. field force and corporate positions.

  • These actions will result in a reduction of the total company employee base by over 40% from current levels.
  • Concurrently, Amarin appointed Tom Reilly as Chief Financial Officer, effective June 20, following the resignation of Michael Kalb.
  • Price Action: AMRN shares are up 3.35% at $1.74 during the market session on the last check Monday.
