AstraZeneca (AZN) has agreed to acquire Omthera Pharmaceuticals (OMTH) for up to $443M as the U.K. company carries out its strategy of building up its cardiovascular drug business. The price includes an upfront payment of $323M, or $12.70 a share, which represents an 88% premium to Omthera's close on Friday. AstraZeneca will pay another $120M based on the success of Omthera's experimental drug Epanova for treating very high levels of triglycerides, a fat found in the blood. (PR)
