In conclusion Novartis plans to generate about $ 14 billion in capital growth from the investment at a time when the value of pharmaceutical acquisitions is skyrocketing and drug makers need funds to develop new therapies.

The transaction price is 356.93 francs ($ 391) for each voting share. Novartis shares on Thursday in Zurich rose 2.2%, Roshe voting shares rose 2.5% to 421, 80 francs.

In September, Novartis approached Roche with an offer to sell the stake. For Novartis, the deal was attractive because Roche was willing to buy back the entire stake in a single transaction, resulting in a clean exit.

Novartis owns 33% of Roshe’s voting shares and the company has received 10% of annual profits from them over the past two decades.
