On August 20, Elanco Animal Health Inc agreed to acquire Bayer AG’s animal health unit for $7.6 billion (at the time the deal was announced) through a cash and stock deal. This is a transformative deal for Elanco and one that will create a real competitor to Zoetis' and Merck’s animal health units.

We will be monitoring the space going forward but are staying firmly on the sidelines for now.
