12:37 EDTMRX, VRXMedicis retreats after disclosing lawsuit against merger
Medicis (MRX) is falling after the company disclosed in an SEC filing that it had been sued by dermatological product maker Q-Med. The lawsuit alleges that Q-Med has the right to block Medicis' pending merger with Valenant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). Q-Med, whose dermal filler products are sold by Medicis, is asking a court to affirm that it has the right to block the merger, as well as a preliminary injunction that would prohibit Medicis from transferring to Valeant its right to distribute Q-Med products. Valeant agreed to buy Medicis for $44 per share in September. In early afternoon trading, Medicis fell $2.72, or 6.27%, to $40.39.

15:59 EDTVRXAllergan CFO change may suggest strategic deal near, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital believes former Allergan (AGN) CFO Jeff Edwards would not be leaving if a change of control of the company, such as a takeover by Valeant (VRX), were in the future. Rather, BMO thinks Edwards' decision to leave could be a sign that a strategic transaction marking a new chapter in Allergan's growth may be nearing. The firm thinks Allergan is in capable hands with new CFO Jim Hindman and it keeps an Outperform rating on the stock with a $230 price target.
