Takeda's €46bn takeover of Shire backed by investors

The biggest foreign takeover by a Japanese firm, Takeda's ?46bn deal for rival drugmaker Shire, has moved a step closer after being approved by shareholders.
Takeda saw off opposition from a group of rebel investors, including members of the company's founding family, to see the takeover "approved as originally proposed" through a vote at its headquarters in Osaka.
Shareholders in Dublin-based Shire - a much larger company - also backed the deal in a separate vote later on Wednesday, with a 99.8% majority in favour.
