Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, an Indian specialty pharmaceutical company, and Taro Pharmaceutical Industries, a multinational pharmaceutical company, have entered into a merger agreement together with certain affiliates of Sun Pharma.

The merger agreement provides that all shareholders of Taro other than Sun Pharma and its affiliates will receive a cash payment of $39.50 per share upon the closing of the merger. Sun Pharma and its affiliates collectively own approximately 66.0% of the outstanding Taro ordinary shares and 100% of Taro’s founders shares, representing approximately 77.5% of the outstanding voting power in Taro.

Upon completion of the merger, Taro will become a privately held company, will be wholly owned by affiliates of Sun Pharma and its ordinary shares will no longer be traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

The merger agreement was approved by Taro’s board of directors. The closing of the merger is subject to certain terms and conditions customary for transactions of this type, including the affirmative vote at the shareholder meeting.
