Shire Weighing Fresh Approach from Takeda

Wednesday, 25th April 2018

Shire said that it had received a proposal regarding a possible offer from Takeda, but said that there is no certainty that anything would come of the talks. The company had been considering an offer of £47 per share since Friday - this is a greater cash amount than the previous offers from the Japanese group.

The cash component of Takeda’s bid amounts to a little over £19 billion, and the statement from Shire implies that Takeda has mooted a more generous offer, although details are currently not available. Shire says that there can be no certainty regarding any offer, or terms, but that the board was considering its position. Takeda has issued a brief statement, saying that it had noted the statement from Shire, and confirming that it had made a revised proposal to the drugmaker’s board. The tone of the statement from Takeda mirrored Shire’s and was careful to avoid details.

Takeda must make its intentions known by 5PM on Wednesday. The news of the talks helped Shire’s share price to increase by more than five percent during early trading on Tuesday. The deal, should it go ahead, would be one of the biggest ever seen in the pharmaceuticals sector. Takeda has been following an aggressive programme of acquisitions, in the hopes of combating a shrinking domestic market.
