Prestige Brands Comments On Genomma Lab’s Statements

Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:PBH) today issued the following statement in response to Genomma Lab’s comments:

“Prestige is committed to maximizing stockholder value and would be open to compelling offers that provide certainty of closing. As we have previously stated and as we told Genomma and its advisors on April 5, should they make such an offer, there would be a basis to engage with them. However, Genomma's offer has not changed, and has already been unanimously rejected by the Prestige Board as being inadequate and opportunistic. Aside from the offer not being compelling, Genomma has not provided any evidence that it has obtained financing commitments. We remain open to meeting with Genomma should they put forward a compelling offer.”

Separately, Prestige announced that the record date for its Annual Meeting has been set for May 7, 2012. As previously announced, the meeting is scheduled to be held on June 29, 2012.

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