Lundbeck CEO expects foundation backing for large acquisitions

If Lundbeck is to stimulate growth, a large-scale acquisition may be one option, the CEO says, though she acknowledges risk must be considered.

Long-term goals are more important than short-term solutions at Lundbeck. After speaking with the CEO, Danish financial daily Børsen reports that if the company wants to grow, a larger acquisition would be a clear option, but in Lundbeck's case, risk is a big concern for the foundation that owns the firm.

"I think that the Lundbeck Foundation would support an acquisition like this if we presented an attractive case that is really a quantum leap for Lundbeck, but we also need to demonstrate that if things don't all go to plan, and the wind is against us, it won't derail the company," says CEO Deborah Dunsire.
