07:49 EDTACT, TEVA, IPXL, ENDPFDA decision on Opana a modest positive for Impax, says Leerink
Leerink views the FDA's denial of Endo's (ENDP) Citizen Petition as a modest positive for Impax (IPXL), which it notes is the sole holder of 180 day exclusivity on generic Opana. However, Leerink says upside for Impax will be limited as Actavis (ACT), Sandoz, and Teva (TEVA) have settlements to enter the market starting in June 2013 when Impax's 180-day generic exclusivity expires.

08:57 EDTACTActavis completes acquisition of Allergan
Actavis plc (ACT) announced that it has completed the acquisition of Allergan (AGN) in a cash and equity transaction valued at approximately $70.5B. The combination creates one of the world’s top 10 pharmaceutical companies by sales revenue, with combined annual pro forma revenues of more than $23B anticipated in 2015. Actavis continues to expect the transaction to generate double-digit accretion to non-GAAP earnings within the first 12 months, including approximately $1.8B in operating and financial synergies to be realized within one year following the close. These synergies exclude any additional revenue or manufacturing synergies, and are in addition to the $475M of annual savings previously announced by Allergan in connection with Project Endurance. Actavis further expects to generate strong operating cash flow in excess of $8B in 2016, which would enable the company to rapidly de-lever the balance sheet.

12:43 EDTENDPOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after stimulus talk out of China and a rally in European stock markets lifted the U.S. market at the open. There was little reaction to the day’s domestic economic reports, which included the Empire manufacturing index, industrial production data, and a homebuilder confidence index. The week's big economic news, however, is yet to come, as investors look forward to the conclusion of the Federal Reserve's latest rate setting meeting on Wednesday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Empire State manufacturing index dipped to 6.9 in March, versus the consensus forecast for a reading of 8.0. Industrial production edged up 0.1% in February, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%, and capacity utilization fell to 78.9%, versus the 79.5% consensus forecast. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index dropped to 53 in March from 55 in February, missing expectation for the index to rise to 56. Oil prices continued to tumble, with U.S. crude dropping to a six-year low below $44 per barrel earlier in the session. In Asia, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Sunday that his government has room and the tools to take action should growth falter, without detailing specific remedies the government might pursue. COMPANY NEWS: Valeant (VRX), which not long ago lost out to Actavis (ACT) in the race to buy Allergan (AGN), increased its chances of making sure its latest buyout deal gets done by increasing its takeover offer to Salix Pharmaceuticals (SLXP) by about $1B. Rival bidder Endo Health (ENDP) confirmed that it is withdrawing its cash and stock proposal to acquire Salix after Valeant raised its all-cash bid for Salix to $173 per share from $158 per share. Shares of Valeant and Salix both rose about 2%, while Endo shares gained 2.5% following the announcements. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Life Time Fitness (LTM), which rose 5% after entering into a definitive agreement to be acquired by private equity firms Leonard Green & Partners and TPG in a transaction valued at more than $4B, or $72.10 per share, in cash. Also higher was Edwards Lifesciences (EW), which rose 8% after the company reported data at this weekend's American College of Cardiology conference. Among the noteworthy losers was iDreamSky (DSKY), which dropped more than 25% after the company lowered its guidance because the launch of a popular casual game was delayed on one of the company distribution platforms and the monetization of another popular casual game was less than expected. Also lower were shares of Enzo Biochem (ENZ), which fell 17% after an appeals court reversed-in-part and vacated-in-part the judgment in Enzo’s favor that Life Technologies' (LIFE) Applera Corp. infringed certain Enzo patents. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 174.81, or 0.98%, to 17,924.12, the Nasdaq was up 39.80, or 0.82%, to 4,911.55, and the S&P 500 was up 20.07, or 0.98%, to 2,073.47.
11:40 EDTTEVAEnzo Biochem to request rehearing of court of appeals decision
Enzo Biochem (ENZ) said, acting upon advice of counsel, that it disagrees with the March 16 split 2-to-1 decision of the Court of Appeals sitting in panel for the Federal Circuit that reverses-in-part and vacates-in-part the judgment in Enzo’s favor that Applera Corp., now Life Technologies (LIFE), infringed Enzo’s patents covering pioneering technologies relating to compounds used in DNA sequencing systems to read the genetic code, and remands the case to the District Court as to whether the accused product infringes. Counter to the District Court’s construction of the ‘767 patent as allowing for directly-detectable labels on nucleotides and polynucleotides, and counter to the jury’s verdict that the patent describes such labelling, the Court of Appeals, held such labelling excluded by claim 1 of that patent. Enzo notes also that the Court’s partial vacatur and reversal of the judgment does not end the case, but remands the case back to the District Court to find whether the accused product infringes. Enzo will request rehearing of that decision, both by the original panel and by the full en banc Court. Enzo believes rehearing is warranted by the panel’s failure to give appropriate weight to fact findings, including facts found by the jury, consistent with a broader construction of the patent, as required by the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA).
10:58 EDTENDPValeant price hike likely ends Salix saga, says UBS
UBS believes the race for Salix (SLXP) is likely over now that Valeant (VRX) has increased its offer price, as expected. The firm said it will still like both Valeant (VRX) and Endo (ENDP) if this is how things end, as it believes the deal is still a very good one for Valeant despite the higher price and it expects Endo to find another deal that should be accretive. UBS has Buy ratings on both Valeant and Endo Health.
