The report says Johnson & Johnson, a consumer health unit worth $40 billion after IPO

April 24, 2023: According to The Wall Street Journal, Johnson & Johnson’s consumer health business is worth $40 billion ahead of its starting public offering.

The very soon spinoff Kenvue is aiming to increase $3.5 billion or more in the offering, people known with the matter told the Journal.

The newspaper stated that “the share sale would be the biggest of a quiet year for IPOs.”

Kenvue is looking to meet with future investors as early as Monday, the reports told the Journal.

When questioned about the Journal’s document, J&J spokesperson Tesia Williams stated, “Unfortunately, I do not have any information to provide” further stated.

J&J previously said it anticipates finishing the separation from Kenvue by mid-to-late 2023.

The huge consumer staples have also said it will retain majority ownership of Kenvue, with ideas to trim the rest of its stake in the year.

J&J is revealing its plan to spin off its consumer health business in 2021. That division has created Band-Aid bandages, skin care outcomes under Neutrogena and Aveeno brands, pain relief drug Tylenol and J&J’s baby powder.

J&J still faces allegations that its talc baby powder and different talc products caused cancer.

The federal bankruptcy judge halted nearly 40,000 talc lawsuits through mid-June the previous year. That decision was part of J&J’s next attempt to settle talc shows in bankruptcy proceedings.

The temporary hold will give J&J time to win court acceptance of its $8.9 billion proposed compromise with plaintiffs in the talc cases.

Kenvue will assume talc-related liabilities that increase outside the U.S. and Canada, its IPO filing showed.
