Aiming to enhance its domain knowledge and expertise in life sciences, BPO services major Genpact plans to acquire Pharmalink Consulting, a global provider of regulatory services in life sciences, for an undisclosed amount.
The US-based firm said it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Pharmalink Consulting, which will also include the company’s employees based in the US, the UK, India, Ireland and Puerto Rico.
“The acquisition will complement Genpact’s portfolio of services in the Life Sciences vertical and add significant consulting, outsourcing and operations capabilities,” Genpact said in a statement late last night.
With an ever-changing regulatory and commercial environment, the life sciences industry continues to face new challenges that require them to rely increasingly on experienced providers, it added.
It will also significantly expand Genpact’s capabilities in supporting the life sciences research and development functions, including regulatory strategy, filing submissions, complex compliance services and the management of post-licensing activities, the BPO services provider said.
