Pfizer inks $11.4B Array cancer deal
Pfizer has agreed to buy Array BioPharma for $11.4 billion
Three years after purchasing Medivation for $14.3 billion, Pfizer is back with another hefty M&A deal. And once again, it's betting on oncology.

In the first big M&A deal under new CEO Albert Bourla, Pfizer has agreed to  buy  oncology specialist Array BioPharma for a total value of about $11.4 billion, the two companies unveiled Monday. The $48-per-share offer represents a premium of about 62% to Array stock’s closing price on Friday.
With the acquisition, Pfizer will beef up its oncology offerings with two marketed drugs, MEK inhibitor Mektovi and BRAF inhibitor Braftovi, which are approved as a combo treatment for melanoma and recently turned up positive results in colon cancer. The buy will enhance the Pfizer innovative drug business’ “long-term growth trajectory,” Bourla said in a Monday statement, dubbing Mektovi-Braftovi “a potentially industry-leading franchise for colorectal cancer.”
