Shares of ImmunoGen took flight in premarket trading Thursday after the pharmaceutical company agreed to be acquired by biopharmaceuticals giant AbbVie at a rich premium.

Under the roughly $10.1 billion deal, AbbVie will pay $31.26 a share in cash for ImmunoGen, some 95% above Wednesday's closing price and more than 50% above the stock's 52-week high of $20.69 reached in July.

ImmunoGen shares were recently up 81% to $29.03 in premarket trading.

The deal is slated to close in the middle of 2024.
