Aug 21 (Reuters) – Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) said on Monday it was expecting to retain a stake of about 9.5% in its newly separated consumer health unit, Kenvue (KVUE.N), after completing a share exchange offer.

‍J&J launched the exchange offer last month under which its stockholders could opt for shares of the former consumer health unit related to the spinoff.
