AbbVie is nearing a deal to buy Allergan for more than $60 billion: WSJ


AbbVie agreed to buy Botox maker Allergan for about $63 billion in a cash-and-stock deal.

 The Wall Street Journal first reported news of the deal earlier Tuesday.

Allergan shareholders will receive 0.8660 AbbVie shares and $120.30 in cash for each share held, for a total consideration of $188.24 per Allergan share. At that price, it would represent a 45% premium above Allergan’s Monday closing price of $129.57.

Allergan’s shares soared nearly 30% in premarket trading. Shares of AbbVie were down more than 10%.
