Radius Health, Inc., announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Gurnet Point Capital (“Gurnet Point”) and Patient Square Capital (“Patient Square”) in a transaction valued at approximately $890 million, including the assumption of debt and assuming full payment of the CVR (Contingent Value Right). Debt financing for this transaction will be provided by OrbiMed Advisors, LLC.
Under the terms of the merger agreement, an entity jointly owned by Gurnet Point and Patient Square will initiate a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Radius for $10.00 per share in cash plus a CVR of $1.00 per share payable upon TYMLOS® (abaloparatide) net sales reaching $300 million (inclusive of U.S. sales and Japan royalties or supply payments based on supply of TYMLOS for sale in Japan) during any consecutive 12-month period prior to December 31, 2025.
Including the CVR payment, Radius shareholders will receive up to an aggregate of $547 million in cash. The upfront payment at closing represents a premium of 45% over the 30-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of Radius’s common stock, and inclusive of the CVR payment, a 59% premium.
“The acquisition of Radius by Gurnet Point and Patient Square provides our shareholders with attractive, immediate value at a compelling premium, in addition to the potential future upside of TYMLOS through the CVR,” said Owen Hughes, Chairman of Radius Health. “Today’s announcement of the acquisition, which has been unanimously approved by the Radius Board, is the culmination of a thorough and rigorous strategic review process conducted over nine months by the Board and management with the assistance of external advisors.
