Flemming Ornskov, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"In Q1 2013 we experienced continued strong performance from VYVANSE, INTUNIV, LIALDA, VPRIV and FIRAZYR offset by the challenge of lower sales of DERMAGRAFT and REPLAGAL which we are actively managing. We generated $257 million of cash during the quarter and delivered 10% Non GAAP earnings growth while investing in our R&D pipeline.  

Shire has consistently delivered growth significantly above the industry levels of mid single digit and we intend that this will be the case in the future. As we look forward to the remainder of the year, we continue to expect to deliver earnings growth in line with current consensus earnings expectations for 2013 (1).

On becoming Shire Chief Executive Officer, I am pleased to confirm the direction we will take, in order to continue to deliver significantly above industry average growth. We intend to continue to be a high-growth innovation business providing differentiated specialist medicines in areas of high unmet need for patients treated by specialist physicians. Shire's strategic priorities are to grow sales of our existing portfolio and to bring new innovative treatments to market through both R&D and Business Development.
