09 May, 2018, 06:09 | Author: Terri Saunders
The acquisition will create a combined company to be half owned by Shire shareholders upon completion of the deal, which is subject to approval by shareholders of both companies and expected to close in the first half of 2019. That is about $66.22 per share, made up of $30.33 per share in cash and 0.839 shares of Takedastock.
In a separate statement, Takeda said it would fund the deal with a bridge loan facility of almost US$31 billion.
Takeda's financial advisers included Evercore, JPMorgan Chase and Nomura Holdings, while Shire received financial advice from Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs Group.
Shire has offered Takeda a large presence in the US and an expertise in the rare diseses.
Takeda had raised its bids over a six-week chase and agreed on a 60% premium to Shire's closing price on March 27, before Takeda disclosed its interest. Takeda has revealed it expects pre-tax cost synergies to reach $1.4bn after three years, mostly stemming from the integration of redundant infrastructure within the two companies. It will be listed on the Tokyo stock exchange.
Takeda has been conducting due diligence for the past two weeks, but Shire had rejected its offer four times on price disagreement and also because it wanted more in cash and less in stock. While some of them do not want to hold Takeda paper, Weber told reporters he believed investors would back the transaction.
