Drugs company Pfizer is weighing up a potential initial public offering of its animal health division valued at £11 billion, reports suggested on Monday.
the company is hoping to raise around $3 billion from the IPO, which it has opened discussions about, the Financial Times reported. Pfizer would look to place up to 19.9 percent of the unit's shares in the autumn.
Pfizer's animal health division is the largest in the world. It said it was still evaluation all options for the division, which had been criticised for poor returns. However, a full blown sale would be likley to incur a large tax hit.
