Wrinkle fighter Botox has a new owner

AbbVie will soon own Botox , Dublin based Allergan’s prized medical aesthetics franchise, and along with its roughly $4 billion in sales, it will lay claim to a new $176 million plant at the site in Ireland where the blockbuster is exclusively produced. Botox turned in about $2.8 billion in sales in the first nine months of 2019 for both cosmetic and medical uses. Botox as a cosmetic product  represents year-over-year increases of 6.7% and 10.7% in the US and elsewhere respectively. Evolus’s botox competitor Jeuveau is largely considered a much tougher rival for Botox to fend off compared with other existing challengers, such as Galderma’s Dysport and Merz’s Xeomin.
