French healthcare group Sanofi has launched a takeover offer for smaller peer Kiadis, the companies said on Friday, in a deal that would value Kiadis’ at around 220 million euros ($265 million).
Sanofi’s takeover offer is priced at 5.45 euros, a premium of around 1.9% to Kiadis’ closing price of 5.35 euros on Feb. 11.
Kiadis’ board said it was supporting the offer, as it felt Sanofi’s infrastructure and capabilities would help develop Kiadis’ pipeline of products.
