Many market analysts were disappointed at the start of last week with the Irish-based drugmaker’s fourth quarter results. However, most did not change their recommendations or price targets. The company is dual-listed on the Nasdaq and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

It became active in Israel in 2005 after purchasing Agis Industries and last year fought off a hostile takeover by Mylan. But the fourth quarter results which disappointed analysts have not caused grave concern to Perrigo’s president, who maintained the company remained in a good position.

“We’ve got a pretty fruitful pipeline. When you look out I think over the next 2-1/2 years, 3 years we have about $1.2 billion of new products in our pipeline, ” Hendrickson told Reuters.
