11:32 EDTVRX, AGNAllergan board to review unsolicited exchange offer from Valeant
Allergan (AGN) commented on Valeant Pharmaceuticals International's (VRX) unsolicited exchange offer to acquire all outstanding common shares of Allergan. Pursuant to the Valeant exchange offer, Allergan stockholders would receive 0.83 shares of Valeant common stock and $72.00 in cash per share of common stock of the company. Allerganís Board of Directors, consistent with its fiduciary duties and together with its financial and legal advisors, will carefully review and evaluate the Exchange Offer. Allergan stockholders are advised to take no action at this time pending the review of the Exchange Offer by the Board. The company noted that it previously received and rejected a revised proposal from Valeant to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Allergan for 0.83 shares of Valeant common stock and $72.00 in cash, and a Contingent Value Right related to DARPin sales. Allergan announced on June 10 after thorough consideration, the Allergan Board of Directors unanimously determined that the Revised Proposal substantially undervalues Allergan, creates significant risks and uncertainties for the stockholders of Allergan, and is not in the best interests of Allergan and its stockholders. Goldman, Sachs & Co. and BofA Merrill Lynch are serving as financial advisors to the Company and Latham & Watkins, Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A. and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz are serving as legal counsel to the Company.

07:25 EDTVRXTeva 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.
