Forma Therapeutics Shares Surge on Takeover by Novo Nordisk

By Colin Kellaher


Shares of Forma Therapeutics Holdings Inc. took flight Thursday after the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical firm agreed to be acquired by Denmark’s Novo Nordisk AS for about $1.1 billion.

Novo stated it might pay $20 a share in money for Forma, about 49% above Wednesday’s closing value of $13.40 for the Watertown, Mass., firm and a greater than 90% premium to Forma’s 30-day volume-weighted common share value.

The deal is slated to shut by the top of the 12 months.

Forma shares had been just lately altering arms at $19.79, up practically 48%.
