NuPathe dumps Endo

Teva has swept in and upset Endo's NuPathe merger. Endo issued a statement Monday that NuPathe rejected Endo's bid, which meant coughing up a $5-million termination fee in order to go forward with Teva.

Specialty pharmaceutical company Endo offered $104 million for the company, but Business Week says Teva topped this by offering $144 million.

The deal means NuPathe's Zecuity migraine patch will now belong to Teva.
