Angus Russell, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"Shire has had another strong year - our strategy of focusing on meeting the needs of patients, physicians and payors to deliver value to the healthcare system has led to growing sales across our balanced portfolio of differentiated products. In 2011 our total revenues topped $4 billion for the first time.

In ADHD, sales of both VYVANSE and INTUNIV significantly outpaced the 10% growth of the US ADHD market. Our geographic expansion is progressing well, with the launch of VENVANSE in Brazil, an agreement with Shionogi to co-develop ADHD medicines in Japan, and our recent filing of VENVANSE in Europe.

Our sales of VPRIV for Gaucher disease were up 79%, REPLAGAL for Fabry disease was up 35% and ELAPRASE for Hunter Syndrome was up 15%. FIRAZYR for HAE has progressed well following its US launch. In addition, the regulatory processes are progressing well at our new biologics manufacturing facility in Lexington, Massachusetts which will soon enable us to significantly increase capacity to meet growing global demand.

In our Regenerative Medicine business, DERMAGRAFT, for diabetic foot ulcers, has performed strongly, generating sales of $105 million since we acquired Advanced BioHealing Inc. in late June.

We also saw good progress in our pipeline. New uses for VYVANSE, a diverticular disease indication for LIALDA, and a new intrathecal mode of protein delivery for rare genetic CNS diseases are some of the novel and exciting treatments we're developing and hope to bring to patients in the coming years.
