WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. (AP) The generic drugmaker Par Pharmaceutical Cos. Is being acquired for about $1.84 billion in cash by an affiliate of private investment firm TPG.

TPG will pay $50 per share, which is a 37 percent premium to Par's Friday closing price of $36.58. The companies put the total value of the deal at $1.9 billion.

Par's stock jumped $13.52, or 37 percent, to $50.10 in premarket trading on Monday.

Par says its board unanimously approved the buyout. It may seek out third-party proposals through Aug. 24.

The acquisition needs the approval of a majority of Par's outstanding stock.

If a superior proposal is not received, the transaction is expected to close before year's end.
