Mergers and Acquisitions Remain Key in Big Pharma's 2013 Playbook, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Reported by Annette Kreuger, Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- In the absence of the avalanche of mega-industry mergers and acquisitions (M&A) seen in previous years, many pundits have proclaimed the end of that particular business tool as an essential component in Big Pharma's playbook.

With 2013 barely under way, there are many rumors of new deals ahead.
