( Corixa Corp. said its shareholders have approved the proposed purchase by GlaxoSmithKline plc., and the deal is now expected to close later Tuesday.

Holders of the Seattle-based biotech company's common shares (NASDAQ: CRXA - News ) would receive $4.40 in cash per share. Corixa's shares had closed at $2.98 per share the day before the acquisition was announced, making the offer about 48 percent higher.

Holders of series A preferred shares will get $517.65 per share, while holders of series B preferred shares will get $172.01 per share, Corixa said in an announcement Tuesday.

The deal with London-based GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK) was originally valued at about $300 million when it was announced in April. Corixa said the shareholder approval is the final condition before closing the transaction later Tuesday.
