Mirati Therapeutics Falls 5% After Bristol Myers Squibb Decides To Acquire It

Shares of Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. (MRTX) are down more than 5% Monday morning after the news of Bristol Myers Squibb acquiring the company for $58 per share in cash, below Friday’s closing price of $60.20.

The deal involves consideration of $4.8 billion. Mirati stockholders will also receive one non-tradeable Contingent Value Right (CVR) for each Mirati share held, potentially worth $12.00 per share in cash.
