The business combination received unanimous approval from the boards of the German pharmaceutical company and Versum, Merck said in a Friday press release. Versum is a supplier of process chemicals, gases and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
Germany's Merck KGaA sealed a $6.5 billion (4.9 billion pounds) takeover deal with Versum Materials after overturning a deal it had agreed with rival bidder Entegris. A bet on a recovery in electronic materials markets for semiconductor makers, the transaction will boost the share of profit that diversified Merck derives from high-tech chemicals to 27 percent from 19 percent previously. Merck, also maker of pharmaceuticals and biotech production gear, this week won the backing of Versum's board for its $53-per-share offer, lifted from $48 previously, having been spurned for weeks.

Versum Materials Inc on Friday urged its shareholders to reject a hostile bid from Merck KGaA , but said it would engage with the German pharma group to determine if the offer is superior to its agreed merger with rival Entegris. Merck KGaA had on Tuesday launched a $5.9 billion all-cash takeover offer for Versum, the former speciality chemicals division of industrial gases group Air Products, to boost its presence in the semiconductor materials market and sideline a rival bidder. Versum has been opposed to Merck's bid since it was first proposed last month, saying it was committed to an all-share merger with U.S. rival Entegris agreed in January.
To recap, Versum agreed to combine with rival Entegris Inc. in January. The market cheered, pushing Versum’s shares up 31 percent to $41, for a market value of $4.5 billion. Merck, capitalized at $48 billion, said a month later it wanted to buy Versum for $48 a share in cash, or $5.2 billion.
