PDL BioPharma, Inc., of Incline Village, has submitted a proposal to acquire Neos Therapeutics, Inc., for $10.25 per share.

PDL, a company that acquires and manages a portfolio of companies, products royalties and debt in the biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device industries, sees the acquisition as a logical step in its strategic plan that would create an attractive pediatric platform and foundation for future growth.

Neos, headquartered in Grand Prairie, Texas, develops, manufactures, and commercializes extended-release products by utilizing technology platforms.

PLD first approached Neos in June.

The PDL proposal will remain outstanding for a period of 14 days. The proposal does not create any binding obligation on Neos, PDL or any of their respective affiliates.
