The announcement sent both stocks soaring, according to Investors.com, even though Perrigo hadn’t agreed to a deal, and Mylan only indicated the two sides are in talks.
“This proposal is the culmination of a number of prior discussions between Mylan and Perrigo about the compelling strategic and financial logic of this combination, ” Mylan Executive Chairman Robert Coury said in a press release. “This combination would result in meaningful immediate and long-term value creation, and our proposal is designed to deliver that value to shareholders and other stakeholders of both companies.”
