Amgen has announced today that it has agreed to buy Onyx Pharmaceuticals for $10.4 billion, giving Amgen, the largest biotechnology company by sales, access to a new blood cancer drug, Onyx’s Kyprolis. In an all-cash takeover, Amgen is to pay $125 a share for Onyx’s outstanding stock, with the acquisition expected to close at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
