Product and Pipeline Update
During the third quarter of 2013:

  • On September 11, 2013, Allergan announced the approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA), for an additional indication to temporarily treat moderate to severe lateral canthal lines, commonly known as "crow's feet" lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only product of its kind approved for this indication.
  • On September 25, 2013, Allergan announced that it had entered into a license agreement pursuant to which, upon closing, Allergan will pay Medytox an upfront payment of U.S. $65 million and Medytox will grant Allergan exclusive rights, worldwide outside of Korea, to develop and, if approved, commercialize certain neurotoxin product candidates currently in development, including a potential liquid-injectable product. Pursuant to the agreement, Allergan has also agreed to make additional contingent payments upon achieving certain development and commercialization milestones and pay royalties on product sales. The closing of the transaction is contingent on obtaining certain government approvals.

Following the end of the third quarter of 2013:

  • On October 23, 2013, Allergan announced that it had received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, the first and only filler approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in adults over the age of 21.
  • On October 23, 2013, Allergan announced that VISTABEL® received a Positive Opinion from the Agence Nationale de Sécurité du Médicament et des Produits de Santé (ANSM) for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (crow's feet lines) seen at maximum smile, either alone or when treated at the same time as glabellar (or frown) lines seen at maximum frown in adult patients. This is an important step towards securing national licences in the twenty seven countries of the European Union as well as Norway and Iceland.
  • " On October 28, 2013, Allergan entered into a definitive agreement to sell its obesity intervention business to Apollo Endosurgery, Inc. for an up-front cash payment of $75 million, subject to certain adjustments, and certain additional consideration, including a $15 million minority equity interest in Apollo and contingent consideration of up to $20 million to be paid upon the achievement of certain regulatory and sales milestones. The transaction is expected to close in 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. In the third quarter of 2013, Allergan recorded an additional non-cash pre-tax disposal loss of $58.7 million ($37.6 million after tax) from the write-down of the obesity intervention business unit assets held for sale to their estimated fair value based on the terms of the sale agreement.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including but not limited to the statements by Mr. Pyott and other statements regarding product development, external corporate development initiatives and strategic partnering transactions including the transaction with Medytox, the contemplated sale of the obesity intervention business, market potential, expected growth and regulatory approvals of LEVADEX® and other products as well as Allergan's earnings per share, product net sales, revenue forecasts and any other statements that refer to Allergan's expected, estimated or anticipated future results. Because forecasts are inherently estimates that cannot be made with precision, Allergan's performance at times differs materially from its estimates and targets, and Allergan often does not know what the actual results will be until after the end of the applicable reporting period. Therefore, Allergan will not report or comment on its progress during a current quarter except through public announcement. Any statement made by others with respect to progress during a current quarter cannot be attributed to Allergan.

All forward-looking statements in this press release reflect Allergan's current analysis of existing trends and information and represent Allergan's judgment only as of the date of this press release. Actual results may differ materially from current expectations based on a number of factors affecting Allergan's businesses, including, among other things, the following: changing competitive, market and regulatory conditions; the timing and uncertainty of the results of both the research and development and regulatory processes; domestic and foreign health care and cost containment reforms, including government pricing, tax and reimbursement policies; technological advances and patents obtained by competitors; the performance, including the approval, introduction, and consumer and physician acceptance of new products and the continuing acceptance of currently marketed products; the effectiveness of advertising and other promotional campaigns; the timely and successful implementation of strategic initiatives; the results of any pending or future litigation, investigations or claims; the uncertainty associated with the identification of and successful consummation and execution of external corporate development initiatives and strategic partnering transactions; and Allergan's ability to obtain and successfully maintain a sufficient supply of products to meet market demand in a timely manner. In addition, U.S. and international economic conditions, including higher unemployment, political instability, financial hardship, consumer confidence and debt levels, taxation, changes in interest and currency exchange rates, international relations, capital and credit availability, the status of financial markets and institutions, fluctuations or devaluations in the value of sovereign government debt, as well as the general impact of continued economic volatility, can materially affect Allergan's results. Therefore, the reader is cautioned not to rely on these forward-looking statements. Allergan expressly disclaims any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements except as required to do so by law.
