16:24 EDTCLDXOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were quiet and traded in a fairly narrow range for their sixth straight session, despite a "merger Monday" that saw over $100B in deals announced. The Dow and S&P, which began the week near record levels, passed back and forth across the flat line several times during the day, though the Nasdaq weakened early in the session and never really recovered. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., industrial production fell 0.1% in October, missing expectations for it to have risen 0.2% from the prior month. October capacity utilization came in at 78.9%, which fell short of the expected 79.3% rate. The Empire State manufacturing index, which reflects manufacturing activity in the New York region, rose 4 points to 10.2 in November, which was generally in-line with the consensus forecast. In Asia, Japan's GDP unexpectedly shrank an annualized 1.6% last quarter, missing projections for a 2.2% gain and sinking its economy into a recession. COMPANY NEWS: Actavis (ACT) gained $4.17, or 1.71%, to $247.94 after confirming that it agreed to acquire Allergan (AGN) for a combination of $129.22 in cash and 0.3683 Actavis shares valued at approximately $66B, or $219 per Allergan share. Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), which had been in a contentious fight to buy Allergan, commented that it "cannot justify to its own shareholders" paying a price of $219 or more per share for the Botox maker, whose stock rose $10.55, or 5.31%, to $209.20... Halliburton (HAL), conversely, fell $5.85, or 10.62%, to $49.23 after it agreed to acquire Baker Hughes (BHI) in a stock and cash transaction valued at $78.62 per Baker Hughes share, representing an enterprise value of $38B. When the deal talks were first reported by The Wall Street Journal last week, antitrust concerns were highlighted by analysts, but Halliburton said it had agreed to divest businesses that generate up to $7.5B in revenues, if required by regulators, and agreed to pay a fee of $3.5B if the transaction terminates due to a failure to obtain required approvals. Baker Hughes rose $5.34, or 8.92%, to $65.23 after the deal was announced. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Celldex Therapeutics (CLDX), which advanced $4.09, or 28.88%, to $18.25 after the company reported it saw a statistically significant overall survival benefit, along with an increase in clinically meaningful tumor shrinkage, in a sub-group of its study of a drug to treat a specific type of brain tumor. Also higher was Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD), which rose $1.01, or 17.75%, to $6.70 after the company announced additional data on secondary endpoints from its second Phase 3 study of its treatment for Fabry disease. Among the noteworthy losers was William Lyon Homes (WLH), which fell $3.52, or 15.53%, to $19.14 after the company announced that it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, 1M tangible equity units, which will consist of a prepaid stock purchase contract and an amortizing note. Also lower were shares of DreamWorks (DWA), which dropped $3.71, or 14.26%, to $22.31 after multiple media outlets reported that talks about a takeover of the company by Hasbro (HAS) had ended. INDEXES: The Dow gained 13.01, or 0.07%, to 17,647.75, the Nasdaq lost 17.54, or 0.37%, to 4,671.00, and the S&P 500 added 1.50, or 0.07%, to 2,041.32.

06:11 EDTMNKMallinckrodt responds to FDA expected reclassification of methylphenidate ER
Mallinckrodt has been informed by the FDA that the agency has reason to believe that the company’s methylphenidate hydrochloride extended-release, or ER, tablets, USP may not be therapeutically equivalent to the category reference drug Concerta. As a result, the agency indicated that it has reclassified Mallinckrodt’s ANDA 202608 for methylphenidate ER dosage strengths of 27mg, 36 mg and 54 mg from AB to BX. The agency said that this change was based on the application of its new Draft Guidance for determining bioequivalence of methylphenidate hydrochloride products just published on November 6, 2014. Although the Draft Guidance has an open comment period through January 5, 2015, the agency nevertheless confirmed that this change would be reflected on November 13, 2014 in the on-line Orange Book: Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations. Mallinckrodt strongly believes its methylphenidate ER products are safe and effective when used in accordance with the approved labels. Mark Trudeau, president and CEO of Mallinckrodt stated, “We believe that the FDA’s actions are not supported by sound scientific evidence and not consistent with the best interests of patients." Mallinckrodt methylphenidate ER products have consistently met all quality specifications and the regulatory requirements originally defined by the FDA, and in the 21 months since launch more than 88M doses of these products have been prescribed. In that time, and across all of those patient exposures, the company has received only 68 confirmed adverse events related to a lack of efficacy when the patient switched from the reference listed drug to the company’s methylphenidate ER products.
