This transaction will give Bristol Myers access to the medicine mavacamten intended for the treatment of the chronic heart disease obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), thus helping in expanding its cardiovascular portfolio.
Mavacamten has the potential to become a significant medium and long-term growth driver due to the vast unmet medical need in obstructive HCM. The deal is expected to be slightly dilutive to Bristol’s adjusted EPS in 2021 and 2022 and become accretive from 2023.
