Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) and MyoKardia have entered a merger agreement under which BMS will acquire MyoKardia for $13.1 billion. The transaction was unanimously approved by both the BMS and
MyoKardia boards and is anticipated to close during the fourth quarter of 2020.

MyoKardia is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company discovering and developing targeted therapies for the treatment of serious cardiovascular diseases. Through the transaction, BMS gains mavacamten, a potential first-in-class cardiovascular medicine for the treatment of obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), a chronic heart disease with high morbidity and patient impact. A New Drug Application (NDA) for mavacamten for the treatment of symptomatic obstructive HCM—based on data from the EXPLORER-HCM study—is expected to be submitted to the U.S. FDA in the first quarter of 2021.
