"In addition, we were pleased to mark the opening of our new R&D facility in New Jersey, as well as to announce the expansion of our relationship with Molecular Partners."

Product and Pipeline Update
During the third quarter of 2012:

  • On August 21, 2012, Allergan and Molecular Partners AG announced that they have significantly expanded their existing relationship by entering into two separate agreements to discover, develop, and commercialize proprietary therapeutic DARPin® products for the treatment of serious ophthalmic diseases. The first agreement is an exclusive license agreement for the design, development and commercialization of a potent dual anti-VEGF-A/PDGF-B DARPin® ("MP0260") and its corresponding backups for the treatment of exudative (wet) age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and related conditions. The second agreement is an exclusive discovery alliance agreement under which the parties are collaborating to design and develop DARPin® products against selected targets that are implicated in causing serious diseases of the eye.
  • On September 4, 2012, Allergan marked the opening of the company's first large facility in the state of New Jersey. The new Research & Development Center, which will be specifically focused on clinical development, is a significant expansion of the company's footprint in New Jersey and is expected to eventually house several hundred employees.
  • On September 28, 2012, Allergan received approval from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) for the NATRELLE® line of round silicone gel-filled breast implants and Style 133 tissue expanders. Allergan is the first company to receive approval from MHLW in Japan for breast implants for women undergoing breast augmentation, revision or reconstructive surgery.

Following the end of the third quarter of 2012:

  • Allergan is exploring strategic options for maximizing the value of its obesity intervention business, including among other things, a potential sale of that business unit. To the extent Allergan elects to pursue such a strategic option, the company intends to offset any potential earnings dilution related to the transaction.
  • On October 1, 2012, U.S. District Judge Andrew J. Guilford entered an order providing that the injunction against Merz Aesthetics prohibiting it from, among other things, selling or soliciting purchases of its product Xeomin® in the facial aesthetics market, shall remain in place until January 9, 2013. The order also provides that the terms of the injunction that restrict Merz Aesthetics' ability to sell and solicit purchases of its dermal fillers, as well as the terms that restrict Merz Pharmaceuticals' ability to sell and solicit purchases of Xeomin® in the therapeutic market, shall remain in place until November 1, 2012.
  • On October 12, 2012, the U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, California denied a motion by Athena Cosmetics, Inc. for reconsideration of the court's decision to grant Allergan's motion for summary judgment against Athena Cosmetics, Inc. on our unfair competition cause of action. In July 2012, the court granted Allergan's summary judgment motion, finding that Athena's Revitalash® line of products are drugs sold without approval and are therefore misbranded in violation of California law as well as the federal statutes which California law incorporates.

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, market potential, expected growth and regulatory approvals 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, 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.
