Covidien updates investors on the planned spinout of its pharmaceuticals business, expected by mid-2013.

The Mansfield, Mass.-based medical device company said late last year that it planned to ditch the no-or-low-growth pharma unit, which will become a stand-alone operation.

That figure is now expected to be 60.4%, according to a regulatory filing, up 40 basis points.
