BioSpecifics Technology Corp (BSTC) - Target ($52.94) Special Situations Update

BioSpecifics Technology Corp (NASDAQ:BSTC) - Target ($52.94) Special Situations Update
October 14

AUXL - FDA Approval should be coming soon according to Zacks Analyst.

Expect BSTC takeout within months.


BSTC will be taken out by AUXL. Auxilium received proceeds, net of offering expenses and underwriting discounts and commissions, of about $115.7 million. AUXL has around $70mm in cash on B/S and around $40mm credit facility.

115.7 + 70 + 40 = 225.7 / 6.08mm shares of BSTC = $37 per share

However, I believe AUXL will be forced to sweeten the offer price above $40, to the $45+ per share range.

Note: The capital raising filing details beyond normal corporate G&A use, that the funds could be used for strategic or corporate acquisitions.
