C. The Rational for the Acquisition
We see this acquisition as beneficial for both sides. For Pfizer, this acquisition provides a suitable step according to its growth strategy, allowing it to develop and diversify its product portfolio and provide new and improved treatments for its customers. The synergy that will be created is reflected as a revenue synergy and a cost synergy. It will allow Pfizer to leverage its asset, capabilities and competitive position by: 1. Increasing revenues from the Eleleyso; 2. R&D leveraging; 3. Gaining a foothold in the "Biologics" area; 4. Economies of Scale - Reducing manufacturing costs and maximizing production capacity using Pfizer resources and Protalix's technology.
On Protalix's behalf, being acquired by Pfizer is a great opportunity to cross the chasm with its innovative technology and widely implement it in the pharmaceutical market, in addition to gaining the complementary assets needed for its success.
