Elan shareholders approve acquisition by Perrigo

DUBLIN — The shareholders of Elan Corp. approved the acquisition of the company by Perrigo Co. at two special meetings.

As previously announced earlier this year, Perrigo and Elan entered into an agreement under which the two companies will combine to form New Perrigo, an entirely new company incorporated in Ireland. The closing of the deal remains subject to approval by the Irish High Court and is expected to occur by the end of the year.
