10:45 EDTTEVA, MYL, CELGMylan rises despite Meda rejecting takeover offer
Mylan (MYL) shares are higher this morning following a Financial Times report of its desire to buy Swedish rival Meda. Subsequent to the story being published, Meda confirmed it had been in talks with Mylan but rejected the company's takeover offer. WHAT'S NEW: The Financial Times reported that Mylan was considering buying Meda, a Swedish drugmaker, in a deal that would create a $23B+ pharmaceuticals business. Mylan reportedly hired advisers to put a deal together for Meda, and though the value of a deal was not noted, sources said Mylan was likely to pay a "significant" premium to Meda's market value, which was $4.5B at the end of trading on Thursday. Mylan's market value currently stands at $18.5B. A combination of the drugmakers would create a company with annual revenues of around $9B, the FT said, noting that would be half the size of generic drug rival Teva (TEVA). WHAT'S NOTABLE: Meda's board of directors confirmed that it was contacted by Mylan regarding a proposal to merge the companies, but the board decided to reject the proposal. Meda said all discussions between the company and Mylan have been terminated "without further actions." ANALYST REACTION: Citigroup upgraded Mylan to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target on the stock to $61 from $52 this morning. The firm cited potential operational and tax benefits from an acquisition of Meda, stating that in addition to expanding Mylan's geographic presence, the deal would increase its presence in specialty, OTC and branded generics. OTHER NEWS: Mylan sued Celgene (CELG) to block that company's efforts to keep generic versions of Revlimid and Thalomid off the market, Reuters reported. PRICE ACTION: Mylan shares are up $2.98, or 5.98%, to $52.84 in mid-morning trading.

06:56 EDTTEVA, MYLPaulson may play key role in Teva-Mylan-Perrigo drama, CTFN says
John Paulson's hedge fund, Paulson & Co., has upped its stake in Mylan (MYL) to 4.65%, which is below the threshold that would compel it to disclose its plans to the U.S. SEC but high enough for it to obtain standing before the Dutch Enterprise Chamber, which would hear any legal challenge to the "stichting" maneuver the company is employing to avoid a takeover by Teva (TEVA), said CTFN. The takeover fight is most likely headed for court in Amsterdam after Mylan's shareholder foundation exercised an option to acquire shares and Paulson's involvement is noteworthy since he teamed with Centaurus Capital in 2007 to thwart a stichting ploy used by Stork, the report noted.

09:04 EDTMYL, TEVATeva says 'strongly disagrees' with Stichting stated analysis
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (TEVA) issued the following statement regarding Stichting Preferred Shares Mylan’s (MYL) decision to exercise its call option: "We strongly disagree with the stated analysis of Stichting Preferred Shares Mylan and its decision to exercise its call option, which is unwarranted, relies on false assumptions, and risks depriving Mylan stockholders and other stakeholders of the value inherent in a combination of Teva and Mylan. We continue to believe that our proposed transaction offers a compelling opportunity for value-creation and many other benefits for the stockholders, customers, patients, and employees of both companies. We are well advised on Dutch law, including the ability of Mylan stockholders to challenge this action in court, and are prepared to take the necessary actions at the appropriate time."
