09:20 EDTBMRNProsensa buyout not good for Sarepta, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray says it views the Prosensa (RNA) acquisition by BioMarin (BMRN) as bad for Sarepta (SRPT) since the company now has to compete with a "significantly more experienced and better funded orphan drug player." Piper adds that the takeover announced this morning has no impact on Sarepta's current drug filing process for its Duchenne muscular dystrophy drug eteplirsen. It keeps a Neutral rating on Sarepta with a $20 price target. The stock is trading up 9% in pre-market trading to $17.16 after BioMarin paid a healthy premium to acquire its peer Prosensa.

08:12 EDTBMRNSarepta rises after DMD competitor acquired at significant premium
Shares of Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) are up 9.5% to $17.23 in early pre-market trading after rival drugmaker Prosensa (RNA) agreed to be acquired by BioMarin (BMRN). BioMarin has offered to purchase all of the outstanding ordinary shares of Prosensa for $17.75 per share, for a total up front consideration of approximately $680M. In addition, two approximately $80M contingent milestones are payable for the approval of drisapersen in the U.S. and Europe. Drisapersen is Prosensa's lead exon-skipping drug candidate for treating Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. Sarepta is at work on eteplirsen, its own exon-skipping therapeutic candidate for the treatment of DMD. Prosensa closed trading Friday at $11.44 and are up about 65% to $18.90 in pre-market trading following the deal announcement.
