13:41 EDTRHHBYRoche to acquire InterMune for $74.00 per share
Roche (RHHBY) and InterMune (ITMN) announced they have entered into a definitive merger agreement for Roche to fully acquire InterMune at a price of $74.00 per share in an all-cash transaction. This corresponds to a total transaction value of $8.3B on a fully diluted basis. This offer represents a premium of 38% to InterMune's closing price on August 22 and a premium of 63% to InterMune's unaffected closing price on August 12. The merger agreement has been approved by the boards of InterMune and Roche. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Roche will commence a tender offer no later than August 29 to acquire all outstanding shares of InterMune common stock, and InterMune will file a recommendation statement containing the unanimous recommendation of the InterMune board that InterMune's shareholders tender their shares to Roche. The transaction is expected to be neutral to core earnings per share in 2015 and accretive from 2016 onwards. The acquisition of InterMune, a Brisbane, California based biotechnology company focused on the research, development and commercialization of innovative therapies in pulmonology and fibrotic diseases, will allow Roche to broaden and strengthen its respiratory portfolio globally. Roche plans a smooth transition of InterMune employees and operations into the Roche organization, ensuring readiness for an expected launch of pirfenidone in the US in 2014. The closing of the transaction is expected to take place in 2014.
