Warner Chilcott is a global specialty pharmaceutical company currently focused on the gastroenterology, women's healthcare, dermatology and urology segments of the North American and Western European pharmaceuticals markets. Since being spun out of Warner-Lambert in 1996, Warner Chilcott has evolved, through a series of acquisitions and divestitures, from a small seller of undifferentiated products to a fully integrated pharmaceutical company with a broad portfolio of leading branded products. The acquisition of The Procter & Gamble Company's global branded pharmaceuticals business on October 30, 2009 transformed Warner Chilcott into a global pharmaceuticals company with significant scale and geographic reach. Today, Warner Chilcott has an expanded sales force and infrastructure to better promote products in the U.S., major Western European and other markets, increased diversity of revenue sources, enhanced product development capabilities and a deeper product development pipeline.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Warner Chilcott has employees in 12 countries in North America and Western Europe. The Company's manufacturing facilities are located in Puerto Rico, Northern Ireland and Germany. Warner Chilcott is listed on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange and trades under the symbol WCRX.
