Almirall, S.A. (BMAD: ALM) is a Spanish pharmaceutical company, with headquarters in Barcelona, founded in 1943. In 2016, it generated a total revenue of 859.3 million € and became the leading pharmaceutical company in R&D investment in Spain. With over 1,975 employees (2016), it has a presence, through its 13 affiliates in Europe and the United States.

The article below talks about how back in May 2019, Almirall had to Pay $6.6 Million to Resolve Whistleblower Claims That It Paid Kickbacks to Doctors

PHILADELPHIA, May 29, 2019,/PRNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical companies Almirall, LLC (formerly known as Aqua Pharmaceuticals, LLC), of Pennsylvania, and Almirall, S.A., a Spanish company, has agreed to pay the United States $3.5 million to resolve allegations that they used kickbacks to induce physicians to purchase their dermatology products. The California Department of Insurance also settled a separate, but similar, claim on behalf of that state against the companies for $3.1 million at the same time. The settlements stem from a whistleblower complaint filed by a former employee of Aqua pursuant to the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. Ross Feller Casey, LLP, a leading Philadelphia-based personal injury law firm with a national reputation, represented the whistleblower in the matter. Following the whistleblower's filing, the government intervened and Brian J. McCormick, Jr. of Ross Feller Casey worked with government lawyers to litigate and ultimately settle this case. "Decisions about pharmaceutical products should be based on the best interests of the patient, not on whether the manufacturer pays a kickback," said McCormick, who has a large and successful whistleblower practice. "These sorts of improper financial incentives undermine the integrity of medical decisions, waste taxpayer funds and are unfair to competitors who play by the rules." The whistleblower, a former sales representative of the company in suburban Philadelphia, alleged that Aqua caused false claims to be submitted to Medicare by using illegal kickbacks, including excessive speaker and advisory fees, as well as gifts and meals to staff in doctors' offices to induce orders of dermatologic products, including Monodox®, Cordran® and ACTICLATE®. The U.S. concluded that these payments, which took place over several years across the U.S., violated the Anti-Kickback Act. The settlement was the result of a significant effort by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Under the settlement, the whistleblower will receive more than $1.7 million. McCormick praised the government's work in the case. "The attorneys and investigators were incredibly diligent in investigating the allegations in our complaint," McCormick said. "It was an honor to work alongside Tony Scicchitano and Charlene Fullmer and to stop this type of misconduct." Ross Feller Casey's whistleblower practice group represents whistleblowers in False Claims Act cases as well as cases filed under IRS, SEC, and other whistleblower statutes.

R&D manager (Former Employee) says

"Around four years ago, Almirall decided to become a Derma company. Since then, almost all derma experts in development (present in the German, Swiss and US centres) left the company. Now, the Spanish R&D site without relevant derma expertise is in charge - governed by some ex-Allergan managers from the US with whom they 'collaborate' based on an intense mutual dislike. Some numbers: in the four years before Almirall became a 'Derma company', it conducted around 8 clinical trials on own development projects through its expert affiliates in the US/Germany/Switzerland. In the four years after the switch to derma, the number was zero (yes, zero) for own projects.most people are nice as person...defending the status quo prevails the ambition to build up necessary capabilities"
