Syncona to Acquire AGTC for ~$73.5M


  • Syncona will acquire AGTC for ~$23.5M ($0.34/share) in cash representing a premium of ~42% over AGTC’s closing stock price on Oct 2022 with an additional $50.0M (~$0.73/CVR) representing a premium of ~344% over AGTC’s closing stock price, based on the clinical success of XLRP & other pipelines assets.
