FactSet on the acquisition news 

AstraZeneca said it will pay $1.3 billion in cash, or $26 a share, for CinCor. The offer is above CinCor’s IPO price of $16 and more than double CinCor’s closing price last Friday, but below its record high of more than $43 last summer.

CinCor shares surged in premarket trading Monday, and recently stood at $27.63. AstraZeneca shares stood about 1.1% lower in London.

AstraZeneca said CinCor stockholders stand to receive another $10 per share “upon a specified regulatory submission” of CinCor’s key drug candidate. This payout would lift the overall deal value to about $1.8 billion, AstraZeneca said.

CinCor had about $522 million of cash and marketable securities as of Sept. 30
