Shire downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on Takeda merger

As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst John Boris downgraded Shire (SHPG) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target to $175 from $190. The analyst cites the changes in FX rates and Takeda (TKPYY) share price in shifting his price target, but expects the deal to close under the same terms on January 8th with no "meaningful hurdles" left to clear until then.

Shire price target lowered to $190 from $205 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst John Boris lowered his price target on Shire (SHPG) to $190 to reflect the impact of the USD appreciation against GBP while also lowering his FY18 EPS view to $15.11 from $15.18. The analyst notes that the investment focus for Shire falls on the November 20th vote by E.U. regulators on its merger with Takeda (TKPYY), adding that the company is on track to secure that approval and for shareholders to vote on the deal in January of next year.

Takeda/Shire transaction shows path for consolidation, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges notes that Takeda (TKPYY) confirmed its intention and agreement to purchase Shire (SHPG) for $62B in cash and stock. For the broader biopharma industry, the analyst believes Takeda's ability to lever up to an estimated 5.4x net debt/EBITDA suggests that investors are underestimating the ability of large cap biopharma companies to pursue large transactions. Nearly all of the large cap biopharma companies face looming growth issues or suffer under revenue-concentration risk discounts that could be mitigated by large-scale acquisitions, he contends. Porges believes that if Takeda can execute the Shire acquisition while checking the boxes of investor demands of a net positive ROIC, instant EPS accretion, maintaining an investment grade credit rating, and massive synergy savings, then others in the biopharma industry with stronger balance sheets and larger valuations can contemplate transactions that are substantially larger even than Shire.
