They already get 70 % of any profit from Bilviq,,and they paid peanuts for that, If Eisai bought it woud be over 2 billion, They arent stupid., No Buyout and if it fails they can walk away leaving Areana with the bag,
Exactly, because the cash saved from the 32-36% on Belviq sales plus milestone payments is worth far great than the $8-$10B in paper (stock) paid to Arena shareholders. This doesn't include the underappreciated Arena pipeline of potential blockbusters!
Why? Because the deal mentioned is just one of many that are still to be consumated! The deal in place is only for NA and SA! Plus they have other drug candidates! You know BP does buy companies for pipeline too not just sales!
