Corporate Integrity Agreement Indivior

U.S. District Judge James P. Jones accepted the admission of guilt, but postponed the adoption of the plea until after a preliminary report was prepared. He has scheduled a conviction for October 20, 2020 at the U.S. Courthouse in Abingdon, Virginia. Indivior Solutions pleaded guilty today and agreed, along with its parent companies Indivior Inc. and Indivior plc, to pay a total of $600 million to resolve criminal and civil liability related to the commercialization of the opioid addiction drug Suboxone. With a $1.4 billion resolution with Indivior`s former parent company, announced in 2019, the Reckitt Benckiser PLC Group (RB Group), announced in 2019, and an implodation agreement with former Indivior plc CEO Shaun Thaxter, announced last month, represent the total solution for the commercialization of Suboxone of more than $2 billion – the most important solution to date in a case that was introduced by the Department of Justice with a opioid medication. As part of a separate agreement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), The Indivior has agreed to pay $10 million to resolve allegations that it is in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C . The FTC filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia, in which it argued Indivior`s anti-competitive activities to impede competition by generic equivalents of Suboxone.

As part of an approval order, Indivior agreed that if it filed a citizen petition with the FDA in association with a drug, it would disclose to the FDA and the FTC all studies and data relevant to this citizen petition. Indivior also agreed not to withdraw a drug from the market or otherwise disadvantage it after obtaining marketing authorization for another drug containing the same active ingredient.

To address criminal liability, an Indivior subsidiary agreed to plead guilty to making material misrepresentations of health cases and agreed to pay nearly $300 million in fines and forfeitures.
