April 8 (Reuters) - Generic drugmaker Mylan NV said on Wednesday it has offered to buy Perrigo Co Plc for about $29 billion in cash and stock in a move that would significantly beef up Mylan's offerings of over-the-counter consumer products.

Mylan said it proposed to acquire the Ireland-based company for $205 per share, representing more than a 25 percent premium over Perrigo's April 3 closing price, the last trading day prior to the Mylan proposal.
