Nestlé (NSRGY) and L'Oréal (LRLCY) announced that their respective boards, in meetings held on February 10, have approved by unanimous decision of their voting members a strategic transaction for both companies under which L'Oréal will buy 48.5M of its own shares from Nestlé.

Following the transaction, Nestlé's stake in L'Oréal will be reduced from 29.4% to 23.29% of the share capital and the Bettencourt Meyers family's stake in L'Oréal will increase from 30.6% to 33.31%.

The transaction will be accretive by more than 5% on L'Oréal's recurring earnings per share on a full year basis. The buyback will be exclusively financed with L'Oréal's available cash and through the issuance of commercial paper. It will not require the disposal of Sanofi (SNY) shares held by L'Oréal. The transaction is expected to close before the end of the first semester of 2014.

05:42 EDTSNYIllumina announces strategic partnership with AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Janssen
Illumina (ILMN) announced it has formed collaborative partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies to develop a universal next-generation sequencing, or NGS,-based oncology test system. The system will be used for clinical trials of targeted cancer therapies with a goal of developing and commercializing a multi-gene panel for therapeutic selection, resulting in a more comprehensive tool for precision medicine. Initial strategic partners include AstraZeneca (AZN), Janssen Biotech, a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) company, and Sanofi (SNY). Illumina is working with the strategic partners to develop assays that detect and measure multiple variants simultaneously to support partners’ clinical trials, with the objectives of securing regulatory agency approvals and test commercialization. In parallel, Illumina is working with key thought leaders to set standards for NGS-based assays in routine clinical oncology practice, as well as to define regulatory frameworks to enable this new testing paradigm. Together, Illumina and its strategic partners aim to transition from single-analyte companion diagnostics to panel-based assays that select for “companion therapeutics.”
