07:07 EDTSHPGShire may be buyer instead of target if AbbVie deal breaks, WSJ says
Assuming AbbVie's (ABBV) deal to buy Shire (SHPG) gets cancelled, which appears likely at this point, many analysts and investors believe Shire will become a buyer and Leerink Partners estimates the company could have $10B to use for a takeover deal, reported The Wall Street Journal. AbbVie will also be likely to look for other deals and could be forced to pay up for them, as its top seller, Humira, moves closer to losing patent exclusivity, the Journal said, citing analysts.

Jefferies says it "can't see how Medtronic walks" from the Covidien (COV) takeover given how compelling the merger is. The firm confirmed with Medtronic (MDT) that nothing has changed in the company's commitment to the deal since new financing terms were announced on October 3. In Jefferies view, "Medtronic needs to do this deal." It notes the spread on the acquisition widened significantly on the news that Abbvie (ABBV) is reconsidering its acquisition of Shire (SHPG).

05:21 EDTSHPGAbbVie recommends holders vote against Shire transaction
Following Shire's (SHPG) waiver of the three-day notice period, AbbVie (ABBV) announces its board withdraws its recommendation made on July 18 regarding the proposed Shire transaction and recommends that stockholders vote against the transaction. AbbVie and its board made this determination following a detailed consideration of the impact of the U.S. Department of Treasury's unilateral changes to the tax rules, as issued on September 22. The breadth and scope of the changes, including the unexpected nature of the exercise of administrative authority to impact longstanding tax principles, and to target specifically a subset of companies that would be treated differently than either other inverted companies or foreign domiciled entities, introduced an unacceptable level of uncertainty to the transaction. Additionally, the changes eliminated certain of the financial benefits of the transaction, most notably the ability to access current and future global cash flows in a tax efficient manner as originally contemplated in the transaction. This fundamentally changed the implied value of Shire to AbbVie in a significant manner. Under the conditions of AbbVie's offer and the terms of the Co-operation Agreement, the withdrawal of the recommendation alone will not cause a lapse of AbbVie's offer or terminate the Co-operation Agreement between AbbVie and Shire. Unless Shire and the U.K. Takeover Panel agree otherwise, AbbVie must convene an AbbVie stockholder meeting to consider the adoption of the U.S. merger agreement. AbbVie's offer will lapse if the company's stockholders do not adopt the agreement. Assuming Shire provides the requisite cooperation and consents, a pre-effective amendment to the registration statement filed by AbbVie Private Limited in connection with the combination is expected to be filed with the SEC as soon as practicable. Under the terms of the Co-operation Agreement, following the withdrawal of the AbbVie Board of Directors' recommendation, a break fee of approximately $1.64B will be payable to Shire if either: AbbVie stockholders do not approve the adoption of the U.S. merger agreement at an AbbVie stockholder meeting; or such a meeting does not occur by December 14.
