05:43 EDTAGNTeva says Allergan Generics transaction to provide 'substantial' benefits
The transaction is expected to provide substantial financial benefits for Teva including highly diversified revenues and profits, and substantial cost synergies and tax savings. Teva expects Allergan Generics to contribute approximately $2.7B in EBITDA in 2016, excluding synergies. Following the completion of the acquisition, Teva is expected to have pro forma sales of approximately $26B and EBITDA of approximately $9.5B in 2016, including an estimated $11B in sales outside of the United States. Teva also believes the acquisition will be significantly accretive to non-GAAP EPS, including expected double digit non-GAAP EPS accretion in 2016 and more than 20% accretion in year two and year three following the close of the transaction. Teva expects to achieve cost synergies and tax savings of approximately $1.4 billion annually, largely achievable by the third anniversary of the closing of the transaction. Teva expects the savings to come from efficiencies in operations, G&A, manufacturing, and sales and marketing. Teva expects the acquisition to generate strong free cash flow of approximately $6.5B in 2016 and expects increasing free cash flow in subsequent years. Teva’s free cash flow will allow for rapid deleveraging and the ability to continue to pursue future acquisitions to expand Teva’s portfolio in both specialty pharmaceuticals and generics, in line with Teva’s stated strategy to grow through value-enhancing and complementary acquisitions. Teva will continue to evaluate opportunities to deliver attractive total stockholder returns on an ongoing basis.

05:28 EDTAGNTeva withdraws proposal to acquire Mylan
Teva (TEVA) announced that it has withdrawn its cash and stock proposal to acquire all of the outstanding ordinary shares of Mylan (MYL) and Teva does not intend to continue to pursue a transaction with Mylan at this time. Teva’s decision to terminate the proposal to acquire Mylan follows announcement that Teva has entered into a definitive agreement with Allergan (AGN) to acquire Allergan Generics. Teva CEO Erez Vigodman commented, “We continue to believe that a combination of Teva and Mylan would have made sense for our companies, our respective stockholders and the healthcare industry as a whole. However, despite our clear commitment to consummating a transaction, and our conviction that we ultimately would have succeeded in acquiring Mylan, we believe we have an even greater opportunity to create compelling, sustainable value for Teva’s stockholders through our transaction with Allergan – and we acted quickly to seize the opportunity. Our agreement with Allergan will reinforce Teva’s strategy to create an even stronger business model in the industry and will position us well to grow the business and better serve our customers and patients.” Teva intends to review its options with respect to its ownership of approximately 4.6% of the outstanding ordinary shares of common stock of Mylan.
