Prestige Brands Comments On Genomma Lab’s Intention To Nominate Directors

Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE - PBH) today issued the following statement in response to receipt of notice that Genomma Lab Internacional, S.A.B. de C.V. is seeking to nominate five individuals for election to Prestige Brands’ Board of Directors at the Company’s 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, scheduled for June 29, 2012. On February 21, 2012, Genomma Lab made an unsolicited proposal to acquire Prestige Brands for $16.60 per share in cash.

“Genomma's sole purpose in seeking to propose a slate of nominees is to advance its inadequate and highly conditional proposal and to seek to acquire Prestige Brands at the lowest possible price. Prestige Brands is committed to maximizing stockholder value, and would be open to compelling, fully financed offers that provide certainty of closing. The Prestige Brands Board, comprised of independent, high-quality directors, previously rejected Genomma’s unsolicited highly conditional proposal, and determined that the proposed price is inadequate and the proposal is not in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.”

The Company will evaluate the notice in accordance with the Company’s bylaws and applicable law, and the Prestige Brands Board will make a recommendation with respect to nominations in due course that is in the best interests of all of the Company’s stockholders.

Sawaya Segalas & Company, Inc., LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC are financial advisors to the Company and Kirkland & Ellis LLP is legal counsel.
