Sanofi-aventis Announces Non-Binding Offer to Acquire Genzyme
Date:8/29/2010

nts a premium of almost 31% over the one-month historical average share price through July 22, 2010, the day prior to press speculation that Sanofi-Aventis had made an approach to acquire Genzyme.  Based on the analysts' consensus estimates, this represents a multiple of 36 times 2010 EPS and 20 times 2011 EPS, which takes into account the expected recovery of Genzyme's performance in 2011.

We believe that now is the right time for you and the Genzyme Board to consider a potential transaction that maximizes value for Genzyme's shareholders.  Genzyme has underperformed its peers for a number of years.  It continues to face several significant and well-documented challenges that were discussed thoroughly during this year's proxy campaign, and which Genzyme recently disclosed will take three to four years to resolve.  An acquisition by Sanofi-Aventis would not only position Genzyme to overcome these challenges quickly and successfully by applying Sanofi-Aventis' global resources and expertise to help realize Genzyme's business strategy, but also deliver near-term compelling value to Genzyme's shareholders that takes into account the company's future upside potential.

As I explained in my July 29 letter, the proposed transaction would provide several key benefits to Genzyme, its shareholders, employees and the patients and physicians it serves, including:

  • Achievement of Genzyme's Vision:  Sanofi-Aventis would put its full resources behind Genzyme to invest in developing new treatments, enhance penetration in existing markets and further expand into emerging markets.  Genzyme would be able to leverage Sanofi-Aventis' strong global footprint and its manufacturing expertise in order to address Genzyme's manufacturing issues.

  • Center of Excellence:  Sanofi-Aventis already recognizes the strategic importance of the greater Boston area as evidenced by the establishment of Sanofi-Aventis'
