Jason Grenfell-Gardner, President and CEO of IGI, commented, "This transaction delivers contribution to our fourth quarter of 2015 financial results. It is consistent with our TICO strategy, and accelerates our commercial entry into the sterile injectable market. These products, while branded, compete in genericized markets for these product forms, and thus should allow us to leverage our existing value chain for sales, marketing, and distribution of these products. In addition, ZinacefTM and Fortaz® complement IGI's pipeline of hospital-administered anti-infective injectables, which is a market segment we believe is best served by a portfolio approach. Our business development team will continue to focus on acquiring currently marketed assets that are aligned with our TICO strategy."
