Teva in talks to buy Allergan big generic-drug unit: WSJ

(Reuters) - Israeli drug maker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd (TEVA.TA) is in talks to combine with Allergan Plc’s (AGN.N) big generic-drug business, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing people familiar with the matter.

    A deal for the Allergan business, valued at about $45 billion, could be announced as early as Monday, one of the people said, according to the Journal. The Allergan unit would be spun off and combined with Teva, which has a market value of $60 billion, this person told the newspaper.
