Under the settlement agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, subject to final approval, Mylan NV has agreed to sell the rights and assets related to seven generic drugs to secure regulatory approval of its hostile takeover of Perrigo Co.
Mylan is offering $75 in cash and 2.3 shares of Mylan for each Perrigo share. This amounts to about $180 per share on Perrigo’s current market price for a total deal of $26.5 billion. Perrigo opposes the deal and recommends shareholders to follow suit. The offer is scheduled to expire on Nov. 13.
WSJ reports that Mylan targets $800 million in savings a year, but Perrigo, which tried to block the offer, has challenged how Mylan would achieve the savings.
