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.
