Johannesburg - Aspen Pharmacare [JSE:APN] said on Wednesday its subsidiary, Aspen Global, will pay £172m for GlaxoSmithKline's pharmaceutical products distributed in Australia.

It said the deal will be funded from new offshore debt facilities and that Aspen Australia was expected to distribute the products.

The deal was subject to regulatory approvals from Australian authorities, the company said.

Aspen also announced in April that it would pay $263m for GSK's international over-the-counter brands.
