Sandoz Inc. (Eon Labs) (ADR), 506 Carnegie Center, Suite 400, Princeton 08540; 609-627-8500; fax, 609-627-8682. Don DeGolyer, president. www.us.sandoz.com.

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority has given generic drug maker Sandoz an incentive package of $9.1 million to keep the company in the state.

The company says that because of the incentives, it will move from its Carnegie Center headquarters to Plainsboro instead of Pennsylvania.

Sandoz spokesman Chris Lewis said the company has its eye on the Novo Nordisk building at 100 College Road West but could not comment further because a lease had not been signed.

Lewis said Pennsylvania offered the company an incentive package to move there. “Both locations offered competitive relocation costs and attractive incentive packages. All else being equal, our preference is to stay in the Princeton area,” Lewis said.

Sandoz employs 292 people and expects to hire 70 more in the near future. The grant is conditional on the company keeping the employees on board.

The grant to Sandoz is part of an $81.9 million package of Grow NJ and Economic Redevelopment and Growth programs aimed at six companies. The Grow NJ program, a job incentive program, was revised in September, 2013, as part of Governor Christie’s effort to overhaul the state’s economic development programs.

#b#CEO Accused of Spying on Dick’s#/b#

Mitch Modell, the CEO of the Modell’s Sporting Goods chain, has been accused of infiltrating the Nassau Park Boulevard location of Dick’s Sporting Goods by pretending to be an executive.

According to press reports, Modell allegedly went to the store last month and told workers he was a senior vice president at Dick’s, and asked to see the back of the store. He also got managers to answer questions about store operations.

New York-based and family-owned Modell’s has 154 stores, and is locked in competition with Dick’s, which has 500 locations around the country. Dick’s is suing Modell for his alleged intelligence gathering mission.

If true, the Dick’s caper would not be the first time Modell went to a sporting goods store in disguise. In 2012, he was featured on an episode of “Undercover Boss,” working at one of his own stores while sporting a fake mustache and affecting a New York accent.
