Deals In Depth: August 2021

Two $2bn+ alliances were penned in August. Topping the list was a multi-target deal between Shape Therapeutics and Roche that could exceed $3bn. Through the partnership, ShapeTX will apply its proprietary RNA editing platform RNAfix and potentially leverage its AAVid technology platform for next-generation tissue-specific adeno-associated viruses for the development of gene therapy for certain targets in the areas of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and rare diseases. Roche is responsible for the development and worldwide commercialization of any potential products resulting from the collaboration. In the top August M&A by deal value, Sanofi entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all outstanding shares of public messenger RNA therapeutics company Translate Bio for $38.00 per share in cash (a 20% premium to Translate's 10-day pre-announcement market average), which represents a total equity value of approximately $3.2bn. Founded in 2011, Translate Bio is developing a new class of medicines to treat diseases caused by protein or gene dysfunction, or to prevent infectious diseases by generating protective immunity. The company is primarily focused on applying its technology to treat pulmonary diseases with a lead pulmonary candidate being evaluated as an inhaled treatment for cystic fibrosis in a Phase I/II clinical trial. Its MRT platform may be applied to various classes of treatments, such as therapeutic antibodies or vaccines in areas such as oncology. Financing reached $4.4bn in biopharma, $1.5bn in device, and $256m in diagnostics.

Deals In Depth: July 2021

Four $2bn+ alliances were penned in July. Topping the list was a potential $2.4bn deal between Arvinas and Pfizer under which the Big Pharma received worldwide co-exclusive rights to develop and commercialize products containing Arvinas’ ARV-471. ARV-471 is in a Phase II dose expansion clinical trial for the treatment of patients with estrogen receptor positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. Preclinical and early clinical data for ARV-471 as a single agent and in combination with Ibrance was a key contributor in Pfizer’s decision to partner with Arvinas.
