- Novartis (NVS) is reportedly considering an attempt to swap its animal-health division with a business owned by Merck (MRK) or another company.
- The Swiss firm, which apparently has little use for the cash that a sale or IPO would bring, has its eye on Merck's over-the-counter drug business, although it's not clear whether the latter would be open to such an exchange.
- Novartis' animal-health unit has drawn interest from German drugmakers Boehringer Ingelheim and Bayer (OTCPK:BAYZF), and from Eli Lilly (LLY).
