Within the last 12 months we have seen some of the largest biopharma buyouts in history. Last year, Gilead Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD) acquired Kite Pharma Inc. (NASDAQ:KITE) in a deal that was valued at nearly $12 billion! This year we’ve already begun to see the trend continue after Bioverativ Inc. (NASDAQ:BIVV) was acquired by French biotech company, Sanofi SA ADR (NYSE:SNY) in an $11.6 billion deal. Furthermore, announcements that Celgene Corp. (NASDAQ:CELG) would acquire Juno Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:JUNO) and AbbVie, Inc. (NYSE:ABBV) could seek deals to build onto or complement its early-stage Alzheimer's disease pipeline have kept the fire piping hot for biotech buyouts.
