08:03 EDTSNY, ACTActavis confirms generic Multaq patent challenge
Actavis (ACT) confirmed that it has filed an Abbreviated New Drug Application with the FDA seeking approval to market Dronedarone Hydrochloride Tablets 400 mg. Actavis' ANDA product is a generic version of Sanofi's (SNY) Multaq, which is an antiarrhythmic drug indicated to reduce the risk of hospitalization for atrial fibrillation in patients in sinus rhythm with a history of paroxysmal or persistent AF. Sanofi and Sanofi-Aventis U.S. filed suit against Actavis on February 26 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware seeking to prevent Actavis from commercializing its ANDA product prior to the expiration of certain U.S. patents. The lawsuit was filed under the provisions of the Hatch-Waxman Act, resulting in a stay of final FDA approval of Actavis' ANDA until Jan. 1, 2017, or final resolution of the matter before the court, whichever occurs sooner, subject to any other exclusivities.

13:55 EDTSNYRBC thinks Intercept values itself more than any bidder can pay
RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee believes Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT) thinks it is worth more than a bidder would be willing to pay at this time. Suitor interest is not surprising given Intercept's pending approval in the summer, but a near-term takeover is unlikely since the FDA hasn't even held a panel meeting for the company's lead drug OCA, Yee tell investors in a research note after Reuters reported that the company received interest and is exploring a possible sale. The analyst thinks Intercept could be synergistic for companies like Gilead (GILD), Merck (MRK), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Sanofi (SNY) and AstraZeneca (AZN). Yee has an Outperform rating on stock with a $300 price target. Intercept is rallying 25%, or $24.07, to $118.36 in afternoon trading.
