Monday Biotech Deal Review: April 5, 2010

The past week was consumed with religious holidays and summer weather, and also with year-end earnings announcements, so there was less deal activity than usual.  Still, there’s about $500 million of goodies to check out after the jump, thanks mostly to MDS and its delightful Dutch auction.

B&W_BigNickelLots of deal news this week, including the Canadian action noted at the time: the iCo-CPDD deal and ethica’s in-license transaction.  Plus there was plenty of international excitement today (repentance notwithstanding) with Abbott’s $6.6 billion Solvay play and J&J’s new 18% stake in Crucell.  Keep reading for a securities-palooza and plenty more after the jump…
