12:22 EDTMYL, TEVAMylan upgraded to Market Perform after Teva bid at BMO Capital
BMO Capital upgraded Mylan (MYL) to Market Perform from Underperform saying the stock is unlikely to underperform in the short term following Teva's (TEVA) hostile takeover bid of $82 per share. BMO expects Mylan shareholders will either extract a higher big from Teva, or the company will successfully defend against the takeover "with an even more compelling future." The firm raised its price target for Mylan shares to $75 from $41. It coupled the upgrade with a downgrade of Teva to Market Perform.

BMO Capital downgraded Teva (TEVA) to Market Perform from Outperform after the company bid $82, to be paid equally in cash and stock, for Mylan (MYL), as the firm views the proposed deal as "neither bold nor compelling" The firm thinks the deal is largely driven by a goal to be the largest, rather than the best, generics drugmaker and BMO believe the integration process would be hard for the companies. The firm also thinks the final outcome and price to be paid after a merger negotiation is uncertain and depends on how hard Mylan will fight. BMO simultaneously upgraded Mylan to Market Perform from Underperform after Teva came forward with its bid.

11:57 EDTTEVA, MYLAkorn rises, Perrigo slips after Teva makes long-rumored Mylan bid
The shares of drugmaker Akorn (AKRX) are rising after Israeli pharmaceutical company Teva (TEVA) earlier today made a takeover bid for another company in the space, generic drugmaker Mylan (MYL). WHAT'S NEW: Teva announced an $82 per share takeover bid for generic drug maker Mylan earlier today. The latter company said that Teva's takeover offer is a more attractive option for it than acquiring another generic drug maker, Perrigo (PRGO). On April 8, Mylan made a $205 per share takeover offer for Perrigo. Teva's bid comes less than a week after Mylan Chairman Robert Coury said that rumors of potential interest from Teva had been "circulating for some time," but that such a combination was "without sound industrial logic or cultural fit" and would be unlikely to receive antitrust regulatory clearances. ANALYST OPINION: In a note to investors on April 15, RBC Capital analyst Randall Stanicky wrote that Perrigo may have been engaging other companies in talks after Mylan came public with its takeover offer. Stanicky said he saw no clear competing bidder for Perrigo, however, and used a $230 per share takeover while analyzing possible deals. The analyst added that Acorn is well-positioned as a derivative takeover target following Mylan's offer for Perrigo, noting Acorn's strong growth and high tax rate. In a note to investors yesterday, Citigroup said it believed a potential takeover of Mylan by Teva would have to be friendly after its legal due diligence indicated Mylan's poison pill "presents a legitimate roadblock" to a potential hostile takeover. Citi estimated an $80 per share bid for Mylan would be 25%-35% accretive from 2016 onward for Teva while a $90 per share bid would be 20%-30% accretive. The firm added that it believes it is likely that Mylan received resistance from shareholders since the announcement of its proposed acquisition of Perrigo. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Akorn rose 2.2% to $55.85, Perrigo dropped 2.4% to $193.24, Mylan jumped 9.3% to $74.39, and Teva rose 2.1% to $64.64.

Teva added, "We have long respected Mylanís business, and we are confident that Mylanís Board of Directors and stockholders will agree that our proposal represents a significantly more attractive alternative for Mylan and its stockholders than Mylanís proposed acquisition of Perrigo." Citigroup analysts yesterday said they believe any potential takeover of Mylan by Teva would have to be friendly after legal due diligence indicated Mylan's poison pill "presents a legitimate roadblock" to a potential hostile takeover. In pre-market trading, Perrigo is down $2.18 to $195.56 while Mylan is up $5.46 to $73.50. Teva is up $1.66 to $64.95.
