16:10 EDTACTActavis announces Nuvigil patent challenge settlement
Actavis announced that it has entered into an agreement with Cephalon to settle all outstanding patent litigation related to Actavis' generic version of Nuvigil. Nuvigil is a prescription medicine indicated to improve wakefulness in adult patients with excessive sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea, shift work disorder or narcolepsy. Under the terms of the agreement, Cephalon will grant Actavis a license to market generic versions of 100 mg and 200 mg Nuvigil beginning on June 1, 2016, or earlier under certain circumstances. Cephalon will also grant Actavis a license to market generic versions of 50 mg, 150 mg and 250 mg Nuvigil beginning 180 days after the initial launch of generic versions of those dosage strengths. Other details of the settlement were not disclosed. Based on available information, Actavis believes it is a "first applicant" to file an ANDA for the generic versions of 100 mg and 200 mg Nuvigil and expects to be entitled to 180 days of generic market exclusivity.

07:25 EDTACTTeva appears to be weighing transformative deal, says Bernstein
After attending Teva's (TEVA) meeting with investors, Bernstein thinks that the company is considering making a 'transformative' acquisition, although it believes that such a deal may not be imminent. The firm sees Mylan ((MYL) and the generic units of Actavis (ACT), Pfizer (PFE), and possibly Valeant (VRX) as the four logical candidates. It says that Teva can pay $81 per share for Mylan, and that a takeover of Mylan would raise Teva's EPS to about $6.50 in 2017 and $7 in 2018. Bernstein raised its price target on Teva to $69 from $60 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

07:36 EDTACTPfizer should rise 'significantly' over next two years, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford told investors this morning that he expects shares of Pfizer (PFE) to appreciate "significantly" over the next two years. A survey of U.S. oncologists indicated the company's Ibrance drug will be used in 50% of first line hormonal therapy within one year, with off-label use in all lines of therapy including adjuvant, Holford noted. He thinks peak sales of the drug could top $13B, which is well above consensus. In addition, the analyst views Pfizer's Global Established Pharmaceutical business as being underappreciated by the market. Potential value creating options for the pharmaceutical giant include spinning off its GEP unit by 2017 and accretive acquisitions, with possible takeover targets being Shire (SHPG), Actavis (ACT), AstraZeneca (AZN) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), in the eyes of Holford. He added the stock to the firm's Franchise Picks list, which encompasses its best ideas. He also raised his price target for Pfizer to $45 from $42. The stock closed Friday up 10c to $34.25.

08:57 EDTACTActavis completes acquisition of Allergan
Actavis plc (ACT) announced that it has completed the acquisition of Allergan (AGN) in a cash and equity transaction valued at approximately $70.5B. The combination creates one of the world’s top 10 pharmaceutical companies by sales revenue, with combined annual pro forma revenues of more than $23B anticipated in 2015. Actavis continues to expect the transaction to generate double-digit accretion to non-GAAP earnings within the first 12 months, including approximately $1.8B in operating and financial synergies to be realized within one year following the close. These synergies exclude any additional revenue or manufacturing synergies, and are in addition to the $475M of annual savings previously announced by Allergan in connection with Project Endurance. Actavis further expects to generate strong operating cash flow in excess of $8B in 2016, which would enable the company to rapidly de-lever the balance sheet.
