Below are variousProtalix'svaluations (thousands, as of April 1, 2012):

Pfizer's Walkway Price is advised to be $983,490 thousand. We believe the DCF best reflects Protalix's value and suggest adding 48%-70% premium over the market price, hence, creating value ranging between $492,149 and $260,980 thousand respectively.

Part 1 - The Rational of the Acquisition
1. Pfizer's Strategy
"We aim to gain leadership positions in key growing therapeutic areas and focus on delivering patient-centric, innovative therapies. We seek strong, long-term relationships that fit our goals and offer a shared vision “ * Company Background: Pfizer is a research-based global pharmaceutical company. The company discovers, develops, manufactures and markets medicines for humans and animals, as well as consumer products. In order To maximize new opportunities in biomedical research, and bring more innovative medicines to more patients more quickly, Pfizer has created two distinct research organizations: 1.)

In order to achieve its new mission, Pfizer aims at gaining leadership positions in key growing therapeutic area and focus on delivering patient-centric, innovative therapies. Pfizer plans to do this by expanding its product portfolio, its pipeline and its capabilities in the...
