Services Deal of the Week
Of course we can’t ignore the second largest deal to be announced last week, for-profit hospital giant Community Health Systems’ (NYSE: CYH) acquisition of the troubled Health Management Associates (NYSE: HMA) for $7.6 billion. The price includes the assumption of $3.7 billion of HMA’s debt and CHS stock currently valued at $13.78 per share, based on the closing price on July 29, 2013, as well as $10.50 per share in cash and 0.06942 of a share of CHS common stock for each HMA share. HMA shareholders will own approximately 16% of the shares in the combined company at the close, and may also receive one Contingent Value Right for each HMA share they own for additional cash consideration of up to $1.00 per share, depending on the outcome of certain matters described in HMA’s public filings. If approved, the transaction is expected to close by the end of the first quarter of 2014…..Want to read more news?

Technology Deal of the Week
At last, it’s over. The sale of Elan Corporation plc (NYSE: ELN) to Perrigo Company (NYSE: PRGO) was announced officially on July 29, after months of hostile bids from Royalty Pharma, a few acquisition announcements from Elan that its shareholders voted down, and finally, a formal sales process. Going into the final weekend of July, Mylan Inc. (NYSE: MYL) was rumored to be the highest bidder. But come Monday, Perrigo triumphed with an $8.6 billion offer of cash and stock—that is, $6.25 per share in cash and 0.07636 shares of “New Perrigo” for each Elan share. That put a value of $16.50 per share on Elan’s stock, based on the closing price of Perrigo’s shares on July 26. For the record, Perrigo joins Actavis, Inc. (NYSE: ACT) in acquiring an Irish company (Actavis announced its acquisition of Warner Chilcott plc [NASDAQ: WCRX] in May) and realizing substantial after-tax operating expense and tax savings of more than $150 million….Want to read more news?

In its first three rounds of financing, aTyr had raised $47 million, bringing its total to $96 million. Although the latest and largest new investor went unnamed, it joined prior investors Alta Partners, Cardinal Partners, Domain Associates and Polaris Venture Partners in the latest round of financing. ..Want to read more news?
