Pershing Square seeks declaratory statement re Allergan poison pill

  • Bill Ackman's Pershing Square Capital Management L.P., files a lawsuit in the Delaware Court of Chancery seeking a declaratory statement that its actions to call a special meeting of shareholders will not trigger Allergan's (AGN) poison pill provision. Mr. Ackman filed the suit after AGN failed to confirm his June 6 written request that it would not invoke its poison pill.

    Question - do you really want the offer now that VRX stock has shown volatility that could sway the price of the offer as low as $170/share? Based on the information available and the stench of desperation from VRX to get the deal done before the B&L numbers get released, aren't you at all skeptical about the deal?


    As a long time AGN investor I believe in the long term viability of their strategic plan and potential for growth and am happy to continue to say "NO" to VRX and their hostile bid. Maybe I would feel differently if AGN was mismanaged or underperforming; but they are not and continually have been a shining piece of my portfolio.


    Just wanted to hear your thoughts. Thanks
