The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed a lower court ruling in Merck's (MRK) favor in two jointly related patent infringement suits against Mylan Pharmaceuticals (MYL).

The lower court also issued an injunction blocking the approval of Mylan's generic versions until the expiration of Merck's patent. Reference Link

09:24 EDTMYLJefferies sees Pharma M&A continuing, lists 22 possible targets
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg believes the M&A wave in the Pharmaceuticals space that began in 2005 can continue as the key drivers remain largely intact. In a note titled "Who is Next? The Feeding Frenzy in Specialty Pharmaceuticals," Steinberg sees deals continuing amid cheap debt, the push for lower corporate taxes and investors rewarding many acquirers for their transactions. He points out there are now around 100 publicly traded Specialty Pharmaceutical companies following the recent life sciences IPO boom. Potential takeover targets, according to Steinberg, include Valeant (VRX), Shire (SHPG), Perrigo (PRGO), Zoetis (ZTS), Mallinckrodt (MNK), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), United Therapeutics (UTHR), Pacira (PCRX), Indivior, Insys Therapeutics (INSY), The Medicines Co. (MDCO), Depomed (DEPO), Spectrum (SPPI), KYTHERA (KYTH), Revance (RVNC), XenoPort (XNPT), Mylan (MYL), Akorn (AKRX), Impax (IPXL), Amphastar Pharmaceuticals (AMPH), Anacor (ANAC) and BioDelivery Sciences (BDSI).

13:56 EDTMYLMylan responds to claims of EPS forecasting by Perrigo
Mylan (MYL) announced that it was asked by the Irish Takeover Panel to issue the following clarification and retraction in accordance with the Irish takeover rules, relating to its firm intention to make an offer to acquire Perrigo (PRGO). The clarification and retraction relates to certain forward-looking statements made by Mylan specifically during the "pendency of the offer" period concerning its long-stated target since 2012 of at least $6.00 in adjusted EPS by 2018. Subsequent to Mylan's May 5 earnings release, Perrigo submitted a complaint to the Irish Takeover Panel alleging that the reference to Mylan's $6.00 long-term target should be treated as a forward-looking profit forecast statement. Although Mylan's adjusted EPS goal has been a stated long-term target, and not a forecast of Mylan, at least during the offer period as it pertains to the Perrigo transaction, Mylan will no longer refer to that 2018 target or any other forward looking statements beyond 2015 that could constitute profit forecasts.

06:55 EDTMRKGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.
