The new chief executive of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries will have to go beyond cost cutting and lay-offs to fend off cut-throat competition and nurse the drug company back to health. Teva needs to find new sources of income to offset the impending patent expiry on its multiple sclerosis treatment Copaxone. The company is the world's biggest producer of generic drugs but relies heavily on Copaxone, its most profitable product by far. The top candidate to lead the charge is Erez Vigodman, the CEO of generic crop protection product maker MA Industries, according to a source close to the matter.
