Changes to our trading names and address

Please note that in 2021, MSD will be spinning off products from its women’s health, legacy brands, and biosimilars franchises into a new independent, publicly traded company known as Organon & Co.

Due to legal entity separation in advance of this spin off, we now have two UK registered businesses, MSD and Organon. Organon & Co. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc. of Kenilworth, New Jersey, USA.

As a result of the future spin-off of Organon, as well as our head offices moving to London in early 2021, you will begin to see some changes to references to our products, contact details, materials and statements over the coming months.
