Rumor Mill: Dr. Reddy bids for Bradley

Leading Indian generics maker Dr. Reddy's Laboratories is rumored to have submitted a bid for U.S.-based Bradley Pharma. A leading Indian television channel is quoting anonymous sources about the bid. Bradley posted $144 million in sales last year; Dr. Reddy's posted revenues of about $650 million for the 12 months ended March 31.

You'll recall that Bradley announced last week it had received preliminary bids for the company and would pursue a sale. In May, an investor group led by CEO Daniel Glassman made a $350 million offer, or $21.50 per share; the company retained Deutsche Bank to consider its alternatives.
