Allergan Reports Third Quarter 2012 Operating Results

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.

For the full year of 2012, Allergan expects:

  • Total product net sales between $5,695 million and $5,770 million.
