Waste Management will buy Illinois-based waste-disposal company Stericycle in a deal valued at about $7.2 billion, the companies announced Monday.

Under the agreement, WM will acquire all outstanding shares of Stericycle for $62 per share in cash. This represents the deal’s total value when including Stericycle’s net debt of around $1.4 billion.

The per-share price also represents a 24% premium to Stericycle’s 60-day volume-weighted average price as of May 23, the last trading day before Bloomberg reported that Stericycle was considering a potential sale after receiving takeover interest.

The companies said the deal was unanimously approved by their boards of directors and is expected to close as early as the fourth quarter of 2024.

Following the announcement, shares of Stericycle rose around 15% during Monday’s trading session, while shares of WM fell more than 2%.

The announcement comes one day after The Wall Street Journal reported that WM was nearing a deal to buy Stericycle.
