On January 24, 2011, Genoptix announced the definitive merger agreement under which the company would be acquired by Novartis, in a transaction valued at approximately $470 million. Under the terms of the agreement, Genoptix stockholders will receive $25.00 in cash for each share of Genoptix/GXDX common stock held. The offer represents a 27% premium over Genoptix’s Friday closing price of $19.76. According to Thompson/First Call, analysts have set a price target as high as $28.00 per share for Genoptix stock. The firm seeks to determine whether the transaction provides proper value for the company.
