14:16 EDTMYL, TEVABMO Capital sees strong fundamentals in Perrigo regardless of Mylan deal
Shares of Perrigo (PRGO) are trading higher intraday after BMO Capital Markets initiated coverage of the stock with an Outperform rating. The research firm is bullish on the shares regardless of whether Mylan's bid for the company succeeds, saying Perrigo is well-positioned to ride momentum in reduced-price healthcare. WHAT'S NEW: BMO Capital Markets' David Maris initiated coverage of Perrigo with an Outperform rating and a $246 price target. Maris cited the company's 70%-plus market share in store- and private-label brands, as well as its roughly $1B annual sales in the generics space. The analyst believes Perrigo will see continued benefit from larger trends driving consumer-centric healthcare and the curtailing of medical costs. WHAT'S NOTABLE: BMO Capital Markets noted that two upcoming Tysabri-related events are not accounted for by the Street, giving rise to a "significant" undervaluing of the shares. Mylan (MYL) has submitted multiple unsolicited offers for Perrigo, and while the likelihood of the deal seems low given Perrigo's numerous rejections and Teva's (TEVA) 4.61% blocking stake in Mylan. BMO Capital remarked that a failed deal should see "limited downside" for Perrigo. There could certainly be near-term volatility if a Mylan agreement doesn't materialize, but the analyst was confident in the well-positioned company's ability to deliver on both earnings per share and cash flow. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Perrigo are up nearly 2% in afternoon trading. The company saw a nearly 25% leap following Mylan's initial offer on April 8, though it has since dipped from that high.

07:01 EDTPFE, GSKPfizer to acquire Nimenrix, Mencevax from GlaxoSmithKline for $130M
Pfizer (PFE) announced that it has entered into an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to acquire its quadrivalent meningitis ACWY vaccines, Nimenrix and Mencevax, for a total consideration of approximately $130M. This transaction will add two high-quality and complementary vaccines to Pfizerís portfolio, allowing the company to reach a broader global population. Nimenrix is a single dose meningococcal ACWY-TT conjugated vaccine designed to protect against Neisseria meningitidis, an uncommon but highly contagious disease that can lead to disability and death. Mencevax is a single-dose meningococcal ACWY unconjugated polysaccharide vaccine used to control outbreaks of meningococcal infection and for travelers to countries where the disease is endemic or highly epidemic. Pfizer does not expect this transaction to have any significant impact on its 2015 financial performance. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions as well as regulatory approvals in several markets, and is expected to occur in the second half of 2015. Pfizerís legal advisors for the transaction were Ropes & Gray and Clifford Chance.
05:35 EDTBMYAllied-Bristol Life Sciences licenses IP from Harvard University
Allied-Bristol Life Sciences, a biopharmaceutical enterprise jointly owned by Allied Minds and Bristol-Myers Squibb, announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Harvard University based on research and intellectual property developed in Professor Malcolm Whitmanís lab at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Building on previous studies conducted with Mark Sundrud, PhD, and Anjana Rao, PhD, at Boston Childrenís Hospital, Professor Whitmanís lab, in collaboration with Professor Ralph Mazitschek, PhD, at the Center for Systems Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital, has shown that HF works through inhibition of Prolyl-tRNA synthetase, which leads to activation of an amino acid restriction response pathway. Based on this novel and differentiated mechanism, several lead molecules have been identified by the groups at HMS and MGH that have the potential to lead to effective therapy for several conditions including fibrotic and autoimmune diseases. The licensing agreement with Harvardís Office of Technology Development is among the first in a series of discovery and development projects that Allied-Bristol Life Sciences intends to pursue. The license to the technology from Professor Whitmanís lab will be held by a new ABLS subsidiary specifically formed to pursue further research and pre-clinical development of the technology and associated molecules.
