PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lannett Company, Inc.

Adderall XR® including generic versions have an estimated IQVIA market value of approximately $1.3 billion for the 12 months ending October 2019, although actual generic market values are expected to be lower.

"Generic Adderall XR® complements our previously launched generic Adderall® immediate release (IR) and is included in the dozen or so products we expect to launch by the end of our current fiscal year. While the Adderall XR market is sizable, there currently are several generic suppliers for this product."
In March 2019, Lannett entered into an agreement with Elite Pharmaceuticals and SunGen Pharma to be the exclusive U.S. distributor of certain drug products, including generic Adderall® IR and generic Adderall XR®. Under the agreement, Lannett primarily provides sales, marketing and distribution support for the products, for which it receives a share of the profits.
