Pfizer, Allergan to mutually terminate merger on Wednesday morning: CNBC | Reuters


Drugmakers Pfizer Inc and Allergan Plc will mutually terminate their merger tomorrow morning, CNBC tweeted, citing sources.

Earlier in the day Reuters cited sources saying that Pfizer was leaning toward abandoning its $160 billion agreement to buy Allergan in light of the U.S. Treasury's new measures to curb such tax-evading deals.
