Pursuant to the proposed transaction, announced on October 16, 2019 and valued at $930 million, Achillion shareholders will receive $6.30 in cash for each share of Achillion common stock owned. Additionally, Achillion shareholders may receive non-tradeable contingent value rights (CVRs) upon the achievement of certain clinical and regulatory milestones.
