Bentley to spin off drug delivery unit

Anyone want to buy a generics business? New Hampshire-based Bentley Pharmaceuticals says it will spin off its drug delivery unit into a separate company and explore "strategic alternatives" for its generics unit.

The drug delivery business--which is working on an intranasal form of insulin--brought in $8.4 million last year. After the spinoff, it will be a public company called CPEX Pharmaceuticals. The generics unit, on the other hand, posted $101.1 million in sales last year. Bentley's board hired Deutsche Bank to help handle the spinoff and strategic review.
