    Institutional Shareholder Services is recommending Elan (ELN +0.6%) shareholders vote against several company proposals - including a $1B royalty-sharing agreement with Theravance (THRX -1.5%) and a $200M stock buyback program at ELN's June 17 special meeting. It withholds recommendation on the Royalty all-cash offer however, although it said voting against ELN's proposals "leaves the door open for shareholders to tender their shares if they so wish."

    Elan's (ELN +3%) board has rejected the sweetened takeover bid from Royalty Pharma, saying it "continues to grossly undervalue" the company, with board chairman Robert Ingram adding that it's "no more than an opportunistic attempt to acquire our company at a substantial discount at our shareholders' expense." It urges shareholders to reject the offer, noting also that it's reducing the acceptance threshold to 50% plus one share from 90%.

In the meantime, ELN shareholders are strongly advised to take no action.

The deal allows ELN to move from the current 50:50 business collaboration to an upfront payment of $3.25B and a double digit tiered royalty structure for the life of the complete Tysabri asset.
