On August 21, 2014, Allergan, Inc. (“Allergan”) provided the following statement in response to media inquiries regarding the order issued by the court regarding Allergan’s motion for expedited proceedings in Allergan, Inc. v. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.:

“Allergan fully supports the right of its stockholders to vote on the value proposition offered by Valeant at the appropriate time, and Allergan’s goal in seeking expedition was to ensure that the case proceeded at a rapid pace and could be resolved prior to a Special Meeting, should one be called. Allergan is pleased that the Judge outlined a path during Wednesday’s hearing toward a prompt ruling on the merits of this case consistent with Allergan’s stated desire. Allergan intends to proceed along the path outlined by the Court for a quick resolution once Pershing Square delivers requests for a Special Meeting. The Court’s comments at the hearing indicated that Allergan should be able to timely resolve this matter and ensure that all stockholders have the benefit of full information and an even playing field. Allergan continues to focus on creating value for its stockholders.”
