1/10/2012 8:13:47 AM

SkyePharma Plc (SKYEY.PK: News ,SKP.L: News ) announced that the SkyePharma Group has entered into a consultation process which could lead to a reduction of nearly 20% of its 101-strong workforce in Muttenz, Switzerland. The company noted that the proposed steps are planned to improve its competitiveness and generate CHF 2.6 million or 1.8 million pounds of operating cost savings each year. Separately, the Group reached deals with the Aenova Group to sub-let part of its laboratory space in Muttenz and sell some of its surplus laboratory equipment to Aenova. Aenova intends to use the space to expand its own non-competing oral product development activities and has agreed to consider offering positions to some of the SkyePharma employees potentially affected by the headcount reduction.
