FRANKFURT, March 29 (Reuters) - German drugmaker Stada , at the centre of a takeover battle between two private equity consortia, said fourth-quarter adjusted net income slipped 4 percent, revising lower preliminary unaudited results it posted earlier this month after fully taking into account a smaller acquisition.
Stada, which also makes branded non-prescription treatments and diagnostic kits, said quarterly adjusted net income declined to 37.4 million euros ($40.4 million), down from 38.9 million a year earlier.
It had initially reported a figure of 44 million euros.
In its statement on Wednesday, Stada did not comment on the takeover bids. It is due to hold a press conference at 0730 GMT.
