Pfizer agreed to pay $93 million to settle the lawsuit.

Settlement: Pfizer has agreed to pay $93 million to settle antitrust claims from drug distributors, including Rochester Drug Co-Operative and Puerto Rico’s Drogueria Betances.

Accusations: Distributors accused Pfizer of using illegal tactics to delay generic versions of Lipitor, a cholesterol drug, inflating prices for over a decade.

Denial: Pfizer denied wrongdoing and called the settlement a “fair” way to resolve the case.

Impact: The settlement provides “immediate relief” to distributors but the case against Ranbaxy (acquired by Sun Pharma in 2014) continues.

Next Steps: The agreement needs court approval and lawyers will seek up to $31 million in fees from the settlement fund.

Additional Notes:

Pfizer introduced Lipitor in 1997 and it generated over $130 billion in sales during its first 14 years.

The settlement amount is significantly lower than the potential damages claimed by distributors.
