Royalty Pharma has prepared an illustrative calculation which assumes that the Disposed Tysabri Percentage is between 46 percent and 54 percent (the "Disposed Tysabri Percentage Range"). This illustrative calculation was prepared solely based upon Royalty Pharma's analysis of the terms of the Tysabri Transaction and publicly available forecasts for Tysabri. Biogen paid US$3.25 billion for the Disposed Tysabri Interest.
Based on the Disposed Tysabri Percentage Range and Royalty Pharma's assumptions, the Tysabri Transaction ascribed a value of between US$2.77 billion and US$3.81 billion to the residual Tysabri Royalty. Using the mid-point of the Disposed Tysabri Percentage Range of 50 percent would indicate that the Tysabri Transaction ascribed a value of US$3.25 billion to the residual Tysabri Royalty. The Proposal Enterprise Value of US$3.56 billion represents a 9.6 percent premium to this value.
In its calculations above, Royalty Pharma makes no adjustment for the value of synergies that may be realized by Biogen. Biogen has stated that its annual operating synergies from the Tysabri Transaction will be approximately US$30 million. No other buyer could have realized such synergies and no further similar synergies are now available.
Royalty Pharma believes that these synergies can be viewed as reducing the effective net cost to Biogen. As such, Royalty Pharma believes that its calculation may over-state the value ascribed by the Tysabri Transaction to the standalone value of the Disposed Tysabri Interest, and by implication may over-state the value of the residual Tysabri Royalty.
In its calculation, Royalty Pharma ascribes minimal value to Elan's non-cash assets other than to the residual Tysabri Royalty.
