Morgans active insights and risk administration expertise. The fund is managed by an practiced J.P. Morgan team, with James Ford and Richard Morillot as co-managers. J.P.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (NYSE:VRX), jumped 0.22% and closed at $108.76 in the last trading session. The company’s market capitalization is $37.11B.

Buried in the details of a new 20-year distribution agreement between Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. is a $150 million financial hit to Valeant that underscores the unusual nature of the deal, according to WSJ.

The amount reflects the one-time revenue impact on Valeant of the drug-distribution pact, according to a Valeant presentation last week to analysts and investors.

Essentially, Valeant is buying back its own drugs from Walgreens and then reselling them on consignment to the pharmacy, said a person familiar with the matter. The transaction is a title swap because Walgreens isn’t returning the drugs, that person said.

The $150 million revenue impact comprises the value of the drugs that are shifting to consignment status, the person said, and Valeant isn’t paying a premium to take back title of the drugs. WSJ Reports
