Those who follow Viropharma Inc (NASDAQ:VPHM) likely aren't too surprised by the Shire (SHPG +1.2%) takeout. The acquisition rumors have been flying for months and the deal does appear to make strategic sense given SHPG's existing HAE sales force (Firazyr). Here's Flemming Ornskov: "SHPG is uniquely positioned to drive the continued success of Cinryze ... through our knowledge of the rare disease space, our international infrastructure and our biologics manufacturing expertise." SHPG will now be able to offer HAE patients complementary treatments. The rare disease business is now expected to comprise ~40% of SHPG's top-line.

Barclays says it has confirmed the iPad Air (unlike past iPad models) doesn't feature a Cirrus Logic, Inc.(NASDAQ:CRUS) audio amplifier. Moreover, the firm thinks there's a chance Apple could stop using Cirrus' amplifiers altogether.Cirrus remains Apple's iPad (and iPhone) audio codec chip supplier; Air teardowns have found a Cirrus codec chip inside. But with Apple believed to account for over 3/4 of Cirrus' revenue, the loss of amplifier sales would still be significant.Barclays cut Cirrus to Underweight two weeks ago, following the company's FQ2 results.

The Boeing Company(NYSE:BA) and EADS (EADSF) are keeping their fingers crossed for a mixed purchase option in a $7.8B auction for South Korean fighter jets.In what is now a long-running saga, BA turned in an under-budget bid in September for F-15s, but concerns over the planes' capabilities ultimately compelled South Korea to restart the auction process.It now appears Lockheed Martin (LMT) is the favorite to win the auction, although the F-35's cost may still mean a split purchase is on the table.A mixed purchase would give BA and EADS some hope of participating in the deal with the advanced F-15 or Eurofighter programs, respectively.The terms of the auction will be settled before a November 27 Joint Chiefs of staff meeting, Reuters says, citing sources.
