    Whisky and Apologies Aided Takeda's $62 Billion Gamble on Shire

    Takeda Pharmaceutical Co.’s ambitions for expansion in the lucrative U.S. health-care market led the Japanese drugmaker to begin a painstaking examination of Shire Plc’s assets more than two years prior to striking a $62 billion deal. In particular, Shire’s neuroscience unit and its gastrointestinal products sparked Takeda’s interest. Shire’s struggling stock performance after its failed sale to AbbVie Inc. and the acquisition spree that followed, culminating with the $32 billion takeover of Baxalta Inc., frustrated investors and prompted concerns about its strategy.

Tack on the 65 percent premium Takeda offered Shire shareholders and you’re talking an awful lot of money.
