Notice to Investors

The tender offer described in this press release has commenced, but this press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell securities. The solicitation and the offer to buy the outstanding shares of common stock of MAP is being made pursuant to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed by Purchaser and Allergan with the SEC on January 31, 2013. MAP has also filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the tender offer on January 31, 2013. MAP stockholders and other investors are strongly advised to read the tender offer materials (including the Offer to Purchase, the related Letter of Transmittal and certain other tender offer documents) and the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement because they contain important information which should be read carefully before any decision is made with respect to the tender offer. These materials have been or will be sent free of charge to all stockholders of MAP. The Tender Offer Statement and the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement (and all other tender offer documents filed with the SEC) are also available for free on the SEC’s website: www.sec.gov. The Schedule TO (including the Offer to Purchase and related materials) and the Schedule 14D-9 (including the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement), may also be obtained for free by contacting the Information Agent, at (800) 347-4750.

In addition to the Offer to Purchase, the related Letter of Transmittal and certain other tender offer documents, Allergan and MAP file annual, quarterly and special reports, proxy statements and other information with the SEC. You may read and copy any reports, statements or other information filed by Allergan and MAP at the SEC public reference room at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549. Please call the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330 for further information on the public reference room.
