Flemming Ornskov, who took over as Shire Plc (SHP)’s chief executive officer six weeks ago, is adding sales jobs and eschewing future share buybacks while cooling speculation that the drugmaker is an imminent takeover target.

Ornskov said he has no plans to expand a share-repurchasing program started by his predecessor, Angus Russell, who retired in April after 13 years at the company.
