Several weeks after Reckitt Benckiser signaled its intent to sell its pharmaceutical business, the company has received an intense level of interest – but not from investors. Instead, agents from the US HHS Office of Inspector General, the US Internal Revenue Service and local police raised its offices in Virginia and were seen leaving with numerous boxes of documents, according to television reports. A Reckitt spokesman, meanwhile, sends us this: “We can confirm that federal officers from the US government presented a search warrant at the offices of Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals in Richmond, Virginia, on Tuesday morning, December 3rd. RB is cooperating fully with the investigation, but the officials did not disclose the purpose of the warrant.”
