Aesthetics Insider: Dr. Steven Dayan Goes Inside the New Allergan With CEO Brent Saunders

WAYNE, Pa., July 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The latest edition of Aesthetics Insider with Dr. Steven Dayan has launched from ModernAesthetics.tv and Bryn Mawr Communications III, LCC. In this edition, Dr. Dayan talks with Brent Saunders, CEO of Allergan about Activis' $70 billion merger with Allergan this spring. The newly combined company adopted the Allergan name last month.

Mr. Saunders, a frequent cable news business analyst and quoted in the Wall Street Journal, answers the questions that affect aesthetic doctors. Mr. Saunders discusses the challenges of a merger, describes his management style, and tells how to successfully bring two companies together under one roof. He answers Dr. Dayan's questions about innovation, R&D, and physician relationships.

Calling the aesthetics space "the crown jewel of Allergan," Mr. Saunders says, "We want to build on that. We don't want to make anything different for the sake of making it different. We just want to continue as Allergan was on its own. Getting better, getting stronger, finding more ways to help deliver new products and indications to physicians to support training and education around the world."

Mr. Saunders candidly addresses Allergan's commitment to R&D. "We really aren't cutting much of the pipeline at all. There are areas where we're getting efficient…But in terms of programs, and investment in programs, there's very little if any change at all," he says. "We're now a 23 billion dollar company that will be generating about 8 billion dollars of free cash next year. And that's money that we plan to reinvest in our number one category: aesthetics."
