Pershing And Valeant To Take Over Allergan

Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (TSX:VRX) to pursue a takeover of Allergan Inc. (NYSE:AGN). Valeant currently intends to propose a merger in which the Allergan’s shareholders will receive a combination of cash and Valeant common shares. Valeant has not yet determined the amount of cash and number of Valeant common shares it will offer, but it currently expects the cash component will total around $15 billion. As per person familiar with the matter, the cash-and-stock offer will probably work out to $165 a share to $170 a share for Allergan, though the exact figure is still undecided. Barclays and Royal Bank of Canada have indicated that they are prepared to deliver financing commitments covering the cash portion of the transaction at the time Valeant makes an offer.
