E. J. McKay Advises BMP Sunstone on Its USD520.6 million Sale to Sanofi- aventis

 

PARIS, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Sanofi-aventis (EURONEXT: SAN; NYSE: SNY) and BMP Sunstone Corporation (Nasdaq: BJGP) announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement under which Sanofi-aventis is to acquire all outstanding shares of BMP Sunstone for USD10 per share, for a total purchase price of USD520.6 million on a fully diluted basis. This price per share represents a 30% premium on BMP's October 27, 2010 closing share price. E. J. McKay and Stephens Inc. acted as BMP Sunstone's financial advisors, while Morgan Stanley represented Sanofi-aventis.

The acquisition of BMP Sunstone, which holds many leading Chinese pediatric and hygienic brands, will provide Sanofi-aventis with significant growth opportunities in the Chinese healthcare market, and specifically in its two largest categories: Vitamin & Minerals Supplements and Cough & Cold.

This transaction marks the largest Chinese pharmaceutical deal of the year, and is a prime example of the synergies and value that cross-border transactions can create. E. J. McKay CEO James Z. Li stated, "We are very pleased with the positive outcome. This acquisition will significantly boost Sanofi-aventis' China presence, meanwhile creating significant value for BMP Sunstone's shareholders. It is representative of the selectivity of our clients and the value and expertise E. J. McKay provides."
