Shionogi says scraps plan to buy Victory Pharma

TOKYO, July 10 (Reuters) - Japanese drugmaker Shionogi & Co Ltd 4507.T said it has scrapped a plan to buy privately held Victory Pharma of the United States.

Shionogi said in May its U.S. unit Sciele Pharma would buy Victory Pharma for $150 million.

Shionogi said in a statement that the cancellation of the acquisition was due to “a situation unexpected at the time of the agreement.” (Reporting by Taiga Uranaka)
