    Tax advise please


    I'm not from the US so know very little about US tax. If Shire buys just the rights to NRP104 from NRPH presumably the great majority of the agreed sale price would be subject to company tax in NRPH's accounts whereas if Shire buys NRPH outright the only tax liability falls on the stockholders, who would be subject to capital gains tax. As the majority of NRPH's value is attributed to NRP104 surely Shire would have to buy the company - the NRPH stockholders would not find the sale of the rights to be tax attractive, would they?
