WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inotiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: NOTV) (the “Company”, “We”, “Our” or “Inotiv”), a leading contract research organization specializing in nonclinical and analytical drug discovery and development services and research models and related products and services, today announced the acquisition of the rabbit breeding and supply business of Robinson Services Inc. (“RSI”), a North Carolina-based provider of high-quality animal models.

The acquisition is another step in Inotiv’s strategic plan for building its Research Models and Services (“RMS”) business. The acquisition consisted of the purchase of certain assets used by RSI in the acquired business, including the RSI customer list, a covenant not to compete from RSI and a one-year supply agreement for rabbits to be provided by RSI to Inotiv, which is subject to extension by mutual agreement. Inotiv plans to consolidate the RSI business into existing Inotiv facilities during 2022.

“The acquisition of RSI’s rabbit breeding capacity will enhance our plan to optimize the global footprint of our RMS business,” said Jim Harkness, Inotiv’s Chief Operating Officer, RMS. “We will achieve our plans by leveraging existing capabilities and network capacity to deliver the broadest range of options to our clients.”

Kevin Robinson, RSI’s Chief Executive Officer added, “After providing services and capabilities in this space for over thirty-five years, we wanted to ensure exceptional, uninterrupted service to our valued clients with our decision to retire from this component of our business. I’m confident this agreement with Inotiv will do exactly that, in addition to opening the door for our clients to the full depth and breadth of Inotiv’s comprehensive research and discovery solutions.”
