Adam Derbyshire, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, “XIFAXAN 550 mg continued to perform well during the first quarter of 2012. During the quarter our XIFAXAN prescription business, comprised of XIFAXAN 200 mg tablets and XIFAXAN 550 mg tablets, demonstrated impressive growth, on a milligram basis, of 27% compared to the first quarter of 2011. APRISO also demonstrated strong prescription year-over-year growth of 36% for the first quarter of 2012 compared to the first quarter of 2011.

“We are revising our estimate of 2012 financial guidance to reflect the effect of the March 16, 2012 placement of $690 million of convertible senior notes. Additionally, our estimate of 2012 adjusted net income includes adjustments relating to the impact of the following non-cash items: loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, convertible debt discount amortization and the difference between income taxes paid and income taxes expensed.
