Jan 18 (Reuters) - Eli Lilly and Co said it would buy CoLucid Pharmaceuticals Inc for about $960 million to gain access to its experimental treatment for migraine.
Lilly, which has its own migraine-prevention drug in development, has agreed to pay $46.50 per CoLucid share, a premium of about 33 percent to the stock’s Tuesday close.
Migraine is a large but under-treated condition that affects roughly 36 million Americans. (Reporting by Natalie Grover in Bengaluru; Editing by Sriraj Kalluvila)
