=Juno Therapeutics (Juno) to be acquired by Celgene (CELG) for $87/share

Juno Therapeutics to be acquired by Celgene (CELG) for $87/share in cash, or approximately $9 bln
Under the terms of the merger agreement, Celgene will pay $87 per share in cash, or a total of approximately $9 billion, net of cash and marketable securities acquired and Juno shares already owned by Celgene (approximately 9.7% of outstanding shares).
  • JCAR017, a pivotal stage asset, with an emerging favorable profile in DLBCL, is expected to add approximately $3 billion in peak sales and significantly strengthen Celgene's lymphoma portfolio
  • JCARH125 will enhance Celgene's campaign against BCMA (B-cell maturation antigen), a key target in multiple myeloma
  • Additional cellular therapy assets in proof-of-concept trials for hematologic malignancies and solid tumors will add to Celgene's existing pipeline
The acquisition is expected to be dilutive to adjusted EPS (earnings per share) in 2018 by approximately $0.50 and is expected to be incrementally additive to net product sales in 2020. There is no change to the previously disclosed 2020 financial targets of total net product sales of $19 billion to $20 billion and adjusted EPS greater than $12.50.
