Mylan To Commence Formal Offer To Acquire Perrigo For US$60 In Cash And 2.2 Mylan Shares Per Perrigo Share

POTTERS BAR, England, April 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On 8 April 2015, Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ: MYL) issued a Rule 2.4 announcement under the Irish Takeover Rules stating that it had made a non-binding proposal to acquire Perrigo (NYSE: PRGO; TASE) for US$205 in a combination of cash and Mylan stock for each Perrigo share. The Rule 2.4 announcement followed the delivery of that proposal to Perrigo's Chairman on 6 April 2015. 

Mylan today issued a Rule 2.5 announcement setting forth its legally-binding commitment to commence an offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Perrigo.  Under the terms of the offer announced today, Perrigo shareholders will receive US$60 in cash and 2.2 Mylan ordinary shares for each Perrigo ordinary share. The offer is subject to certain conditions and other terms set forth in the formal Rule 2.5 announcement. The offer is fully financed, cash confirmed and not conditional on due diligence.

It is expected that, following the consummation of the transaction, Mylan shareholders will own approximately 61.8% of the outstanding Mylan ordinary shares on a fully diluted basis and former Perrigo shareholders will own approximately 38.2% of the outstanding Mylan ordinary shares on a fully diluted basis.

Mylan expects the combination will result in at least US$800 million of annual pre-tax operational synergies by the end of year four following the consummation of the offer. The synergy estimate was prepared using a sound process and was independently reported on by the Irish firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers and Goldman Sachs International in accordance with the requirements of the Irish Takeover Rules. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to EPS on a fully-synergized basis and it is anticipated that substantial free cash flows will drive rapid deleveraging and enhanced reinvestment into the business, with the combined company expected to maintain its investment grade credit profile.

Mylan's Executive Chairman Robert J. Coury commented, "Mylan has today begun a legally-binding process under the Irish Takeover Rules to commence its offer for Perrigo, demonstrating our commitment to making this compelling combination a reality.

"We are taking this next critically important step, which begins the clock under the rigid timeframe set by the Irish Takeover Rules, in order to continue to ensure clarity and certainty around our intentions for investors, particularly in light of the strong market reaction to this combination and demands from investors for us to take this step.   

"Not only have we fully financed our offer and already incurred significant non-refundable financing fees, our offer also is cash confirmed and not conditional on due diligence. Additionally, we also have made a "hell or high water" commitment to obtain US antitrust clearance. All of this further underscores our confidence in, and commitment to, completing this transaction in the timeliest manner possible.

"Mylan fully intends to comply with all requirements of the Irish Takeover Rules that govern this process. As such, we would like to caution investors that we will be limited in our ability to disclose certain forward-looking information. However, we believe the financial and strategic benefits outlined in our Rule 2.4 announcement and today's Rule 2.5 announcement leave no doubt as to the value that would be created by this combination.

"While we are disappointed by the decision of the Perrigo Board to reject our proposal without entering into discussions thus far, we are still hopeful and confident that we can engage with their Board about our offer and how to best bring our organizations together. 

"As evidenced by today's Rule 2.5 announcement, we remain steadfast in our offer to acquire Perrigo, given the substantial opportunities we anticipate it will create for our company, shareholders and other stakeholders.  We will not be distracted from the pursuit of this exciting, value-creating combination."

Mylan's Chief Executive Officer Heather Bresch commented, "The combination of Mylan and Perrigo demonstrates clear and compelling industrial logic and will generate significant value for customers, patients, employees, stockholders and other stakeholders through the creation of a one-of-a-kind global healthcare company that has complementary businesses and cultures, unmatched scale in its operations, one of the industry's broadest and most diversified portfolios, and immense reach across distribution channels around the world.  This unique infrastructure will be able to maximize evolving industry dynamics and capitalize on key trends, including the unprecedented number of Rx to OTC switches underway. We are well positioned to leverage all of these assets and trends, as well as Mylan's strong brand equity, to redefine how healthcare is delivered."

The cash portion of the consideration in the offer will be financed by a new bridge credit facility arranged by Goldman Sachs Bank USA.  Goldman, Sachs & Co., in its capacity as financial advisor to Mylan, has stated that it is satisfied that sufficient resources will be available to satisfy in full the cash consideration payable upon full acceptance of the offer by Perrigo's shareholders.

The making of the offer to Perrigo shareholders is pre-conditioned on the first in time of the following having occurred: (i) the expiration or termination of all applicable waiting periods (including any extensions thereof) under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, of the United States and the rules and regulations thereunder (the "HSR Act"), (ii) a final decision to clear or approve the consummation of the acquisition of Perrigo contemplated by the offer under the HSR Act having been obtained, irrespective of the conditions attaching thereto, or (iii) 13 September 2015.  The offer is subject to customary conditions for an offer governed by the Irish Takeover Rules.

Goldman Sachs is acting as financial advisor, and Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP is acting as legal advisor, to Mylan, with Arthur Coxacting as legal advisor in Ireland.

This announcement is being made pursuant to Rule 2.5 of the Irish Takeover Rules.

For immediate release

24 April 2015

OFFER BY
MYLAN N.V. FOR
THE ENTIRE ISSUED AND TO BE ISSUED SHARE CAPITAL OF 
PERRIGO COMPANY PLC

1.                  Introduction

On 6 April 2015, the Executive Chairman of Mylan N.V. ("Mylan") delivered a non-binding proposal (the "Proposal") to acquire Perrigo Company plc ("Perrigo") in a cash-and-stock transaction to Perrigo's Chairman.  On 8 April 2015, Mylan issued an announcement (the "2.4 Announcement") that it had made the Proposal, under which the Perrigo Shareholders would receiveUS$205 in a combination of cash and Mylan stock for each Perrigo Share.  On 21 April 2015, Perrigo issued an announcement rejecting the Proposal, without having engaged in any discussions with Mylan about the Proposal.

Mylan has repeatedly offered to have a constructive dialogue with Perrigo on the Proposal, but Perrigo has refused.  Mylan is disappointed that the Perrigo Board has not engaged with it in discussions about this offer which provides significant value creation for the Perrigo Shareholders.  Nonetheless, Mylan believes that a combination of Mylan and Perrigo offers clear and compelling strategic and financial benefits to shareholders and other stakeholders of both companies.  Mylan therefore remains committed to completing this transaction.

Mylan is making this announcement solely on the basis of publicly available information, as it has not been given any access to due diligence by Perrigo. Mylan's 2.4 Announcement stated that the making of an offer was subject to the pre-condition of confirmatory due diligence (the "Due Diligence Pre-Condition"), which has not been satisfied.  The Due Diligence Pre-Condition is capable of waiver by Mylan at its discretion. In issuing this announcement, Mylan hereby waives the Due Diligence Pre-Condition.

2.                  Terms of the Offer

Mylan today announces an offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Perrigo.  Under the terms of the Offer and subject to the HSR Pre-Condition and the conditions and other terms set forth in Appendix I, Perrigo Shareholders will receive US$60in cash (the "Cash Consideration") and 2.2 Mylan Shares (the "Share Consideration" and, together with the Cash Consideration, the "Offer Price") for each Perrigo Share.

The Offer would provide a very significant cash payment to Perrigo Shareholders.  In addition, even with conservative assumptions for what Mylan believes to be significant and meaningful operational synergies, Mylan believes the Offer would provide Perrigo Shareholders with an equity value in the combined company that is even greater than their equity ownership in Perrigo today.

It is expected that, following the consummation of the Offer and the compulsory acquisition by Mylan of any Perrigo Shares not acquired pursuant to the Offer, Mylan shareholders will own approximately 61.8% of the outstanding Mylan Shares on a fully diluted basis and former Perrigo Shareholders will own approximately 38.2% of the outstanding Mylan Shares on a fully diluted basis.

The making of the Offer is pre-conditioned on the first in time of the following having occurred: (i) the expiration or termination of all applicable waiting periods (including any extensions thereof) under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, of the United States and the rules and regulations thereunder (the "HSR Act"), (ii) a final decision to clear or approve the consummation of the acquisition of Perrigo contemplated by the Offer under the HSR Act having been obtained, irrespective of the conditions attaching thereto, or (iii) 13 September 2015 (the "HSR Pre-Condition").  Mylan reserves the right to waive the HSR Pre-Condition. 

Mylan has an unconditional commitment to take all actions, including making regulatory submissions, responding to information requests and doing everything necessary to procure a decision from the US Federal Trade Commission, including making any and all divestitures and other substantive actions, necessary or required in order to ensure that the HSR Pre-Condition is satisfied.

Subject to the HSR Pre-Condition being satisfied or waived by Mylan, the Offer will be made subject to the conditions and other terms set forth in Appendix I, each of which will also be set forth in the Offer Document. The Offer will also be subject to the further terms to be set out in the Offer Document and the Acceptance Documents.

No fractions of Mylan Shares comprising the Share Consideration will be issued to Perrigo Shareholders.  Any fractional entitlements will be rounded up or down to the nearest whole number (with fractional entitlements to 0.5 of a Mylan Share being rounded up).

Mylan is required to file a registration statement on Form S-4 (a "Registration Statement") with the SEC in connection with the Offer. The Registration Statement will contain the Offer Document in relation to the Offer for the purposes of the Irish Takeover Rules.  The Offer Document will be posted to Perrigo Shareholders promptly after the Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC, provided that the HSR Pre-Condition has been satisfied or waived by Mylan. Depending on the identity and the location of the Perrigo Shareholders, Mylan may also be required to publish a prospectus in relation to the Offer that has been approved by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets and/or the Israel Securities Authority.  Mylan intends to comply with all applicable law in the event that any such prospectus is required.

The Perrigo Shares will be acquired pursuant to the Offer fully paid and free from all Encumbrances and together with all rights now or hereafter attaching thereto (including without limitation voting rights and the right to receive, and retain in full, all dividends and other distributions (if any) declared, made or paid, or any other return of capital (whether by reduction of share capital or share premium account or otherwise) made on or after the date of this announcement). Mylan reserves the right to reduce (subject to the consent of the Irish Takeover Panel, if required) the Offer consideration, through an appropriate mechanism, in the event that any such dividends or other distributions are declared.

The Offer will not extend to any Perrigo Shares which are cancelled after the date the Offer is made or which are held, or become held, as treasury shares.

3.                  Compelling Reasons for Acceptance

Mylan believes that the Offer is compelling given that:

  • the Offer Price represents a meaningful premium for the Perrigo Shareholders;
  • if the Offer is consummated, Perrigo Shareholders will become shareholders of Mylan, which has a clear track record of creating shareholder value, with an annualized three year total shareholder return of approximately 36 percent;
  • the combination of Mylan and Perrigo will result in a combined company with a strong financial profile, including:
    • approximately US$15.3 billion in 2014 pro forma sales;
    • immediate accretion to EPS on a fully-synergized basis;
    • at least US$800 million of annual pre-tax operational synergies expected by the end of year four following the consummation of the Offer;
    • substantial free cash flows to drive rapid deleveraging and enhanced reinvestment into the business, with the combined company expected to maintain an investment grade credit rating;
    • opportunities for meaningful growth given the strength of the combined businesses, rich pipeline of launches and opportunities to mean even more to customers across business lines; and
    • potential for continued expansion through business development and acquisitions across business lines; and
  • the Offer is fully financed, cash confirmed and not conditional on due diligence.

Moreover, Mylan is confident in its ability to integrate Perrigo.  Mylan has a demonstrated ability to acquire and integrate large and complex assets, with a proven track record of achieving and exceeding synergy targets and maximizing the values of the assets acquired in past transactions. In addition, Mylan believes that its and Perrigo's shared culture of integrity, respect and responsibility and common focus on innovation, reliability and customer service will be key contributors to a successful integration.

In addition to the compelling value to shareholders, a combination of Mylan and Perrigo would offer substantial benefits to the other stakeholders of both companies.  For example, the combination would provide a broader variety of opportunities to employees and increased stability for the communities in which the companies operate and serve.  The position of creditors, customers and suppliers would also be enhanced by the combined company's scale and significant cash flows, and patients would receive improved access to affordable, high quality medicine through increased scale across geographies and robust capabilities to drive innovation.

6.                  Financing the Offer

The Cash Consideration will be financed by a new bridge credit facility arranged by Goldman Sachs Bank. Further information on the corporate structure of Mylan and the financing of the Cash Consideration will be set out in the Offer Document.

Goldman, Sachs & Co., as financial advisor to Mylan, is satisfied that sufficient resources are available to satisfy in full the Cash Consideration payable upon full acceptance of the Offer.

7.                  Convertible Securities and Rights Under Perrigo Share Plans

The Offer will be extended to any Perrigo Shares which are issued or unconditionally allotted and fully paid (or credited as fully paid) while the Offer remains open for acceptance (or, subject to the Irish Takeover Rules, by such earlier date as Mylan may decide), including, without limitation, any Perrigo Shares issued pursuant to the exercise of options to subscribe for Perrigo Shares or rights to otherwise acquire Perrigo Shares under the Perrigo Share Plans.

Mylan will make appropriate proposals to the holders of options to subscribe for Perrigo Shares or rights to otherwise acquire Perrigo Shares under the Perrigo Share Plans (the "Perrigo Equity Award Holders"), subject to the Offer becoming or being declared unconditional in all respects.

8.                  Disclosure of Interests and Short Positions in Perrigo

As at 20 April 2015, neither Mylan nor any person acting in concert with Mylan had any interest, or held any short position, in any relevant securities of Perrigo and neither Mylan nor any associate of Mylan had any arrangement to which Rule 8.7 applies relating to relevant securities of Perrigo. For these purposes, "associate" and "arrangement to which Rule 8.7 applies" have the meanings given to those terms in the Irish Takeover Rules. An "arrangement to which Rule 8.7 applies" includes any indemnity or option arrangement, and any agreement or understanding, formal or informal, of whatever nature, between two or more persons relating to relevant securities which is, or may be, an inducement to one or more of such persons to deal or refrain from dealing in such securities.

9.                  Compulsory Acquisition, De-listing and Re-registration

If the Offer becomes or is declared unconditional in all respects and sufficient acceptances have been received, Mylan intends to apply the provisions of Section 204 of the Companies Act of 1963 of Ireland, as amended, or Sections 456 to 460 of the Companies Act of 2014 of Ireland, as the case may be, to acquire compulsorily any outstanding Perrigo Shares not acquired or agreed to be acquired pursuant to the Offer or otherwise.

As soon as it is appropriate and possible to do so, and subject to the Offer becoming or being declared unconditional in all respects, Mylan intends to apply for the cancellation of the listing and trading of Perrigo Shares on the NYSE and TASE. Such cancellation of the listing and trading of Perrigo Shares is likely to reduce significantly the liquidity and marketability of any Perrigo Shares with respect to which the Offer has not been accepted. Mylan intends to take, or cause to be taken, all actions, and do or cause to be done all things, reasonably necessary, proper or advisable on its part under applicable law to cause the deregistration of the Perrigo Shares under the US Exchange Act as soon as practicable after such delisting.  

Following cancellation of the listing and trading of Perrigo Shares on the NYSE and TASE, Mylan intends to procure that Perrigo is re-registered as a private company under the relevant provisions of the Companies (Amendment) Act 1983 of Ireland, or the Companies Act of 2014 of Ireland, as the case may be.   

10.              Mylan Shareholder Approval and Listing Application

Mylan Shareholders must approve the Offer, the issuance of the Share Consideration and any other resolutions instrumental to the Offer prior to the completion of the Offer.  The necessary resolutions will therefore be put to an extraordinary general meeting of Mylan.  In addition, prior to the completion of the Offer, application will be made for the admission to trading on NASDAQ of the new Mylan Shares that will comprise the Share Consideration.

11.              Non-Irish or US Shareholders

The availability of the Offer to persons not resident in Ireland or the United States may be affected by the laws of the jurisdiction in which they are resident. Persons who are resident in any jurisdiction or territory other than Ireland or the United States should obtain professional advice and observe any applicable requirements. Further details in relation to overseas shareholders will be contained in the Offer Document.

12.              Takeover Rules Derogations

Rule 10.6 Derogation

Rule 10.6 of the Irish Takeover Rules states that, except as otherwise directed by the Panel, the Offer shall be deemed to become unconditional as to acceptances and the acceptance condition of the Offer shall be deemed satisfied when and only when Mylan's receiving agent issues a certificate to Mylan which certifies that the number of acceptances of the Offer received, together with the number of shares otherwise acquired, are sufficient to meet the requirements of the acceptance condition of the Offer and that this certificate must be issued promptly once the receiving agent is satisfied that the acceptance condition has been met.

Rule 34 of the Irish Takeover Rules states that an acceptor of the Offer shall be entitled to withdraw his or her acceptance from the date which is 21 calendar days after the first closing date of the Offer, if the Offer has not by such date become unconditional as to acceptances. Such entitlement to withdraw acceptances is exercisable until the earlier of: (i) the time at which the Offer becomes unconditional as to acceptances; and (ii) the final time at which the Offer could become unconditional as to acceptances pursuant to the Irish Takeover Rules.

In contrast to the Irish Takeover Rules (which provide for withdrawal rights only during limited times during the Offer Period), US securities laws require Mylan to permit acceptors of the Offer to withdraw their acceptances at any time from posting of the Offer Document until the Offer is declared wholly unconditional or lapses.

On 24 April 2015, the Irish Takeover Panel agreed to grant Mylan a derogation from Rule 10.6.

The Irish Takeover Panel granted this derogation in order to harmonise the requirements of the Irish Takeover Rules and US securities laws. The derogation means that Mylan does not have to declare the Offer unconditional as to acceptances until all other conditions have been satisfied.  This in turn means that acceptors of the Offer can withdraw their acceptances at any time from the posting of the Offer Document until the Offer is declared wholly unconditional, provided that: (i) Mylan is under no obligation to declare the Offer unconditional as to acceptances until all other conditions are satisfied; and (ii) if the Offer has not become wholly unconditional by the sixtieth calendar day after the posting of the Offer Document it will lapse.

Rule 13.2 Consent 

Rule 13.2 of the Irish Takeover Rules states that, except with the consent of the Panel, a person shall not announce pursuant to Rule 2.5 of the Irish Takeover Rules a firm intention to make an offer (i.e. this announcement) the making of which would be subject to any pre-condition.

On 24 April 2015, the Irish Takeover Panel consented to Mylan including the HSR Pre-Condition in this announcement.

The derogation described above (in relation to Rule 10.6 of the Irish Takeover Rules) requires the Offer to be wholly unconditional by no later than the sixtieth calendar day following the posting of the Offer Document ("Day 60").

All applicable waiting periods (including any extensions thereof) under the HSR Act must expire or terminate before Mylan consummates the Offer.  Based on previous transactions in the pharmaceutical industry, it is estimated that it could take between four and seven months for such periods to expire. There is therefore little or no prospect of Mylan being able to satisfy such requirement in time to prevent the Offer from lapsing (i.e. by Day 60).

In order to resolve this conflict and to make it possible for the Offer to become wholly unconditional by the deadlines imposed by the Irish Takeover Rules, the Irish Takeover Panel consented to Mylan including the HSR Pre-Condition in this announcement.  The making of the Offer itself (and the posting of the Offer Document) is therefore conditioned on the first in time of the following having occurred: (i) the expiration or termination of all applicable waiting periods (including any extensions thereof) under the HSR Act, (ii) a final decision to clear or approve the consummation of the acquisition of Perrigo contemplated by the Offer under the HSR Act having been obtained, irrespective of the conditions attaching thereto, or (iii) 13 September 2015.   

13.              General

Subject to the HSR Pre-Condition being satisfied or waived by Mylan, the Offer will be made subject to the conditions and other terms set out in Appendix I, each of which will also be set out in the Offer Document. The Offer Document will include full details of the Offer and the expected timetable and will be accompanied by the Acceptance Documents.

The Offer Document and the Acceptance Documents will be despatched to Perrigo Shareholders and, for information only, to Perrigo Equity Award Holders promptly after the Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC, provided that the HSR Pre-Condition has been satisfied or waived by Mylan. The Offer will be governed by the laws of the US and Ireland and will be subject to the applicable requirements of the Irish Takeover Rules, the US Exchange Act, the Securities Law, 5728-1968, of the State of Israel, NYSE and other applicable laws.

Appendix II contains the bases of calculation and sources of certain information contained in this announcement. Appendix III sets out definitions of certain terms used in this announcement. Appendix IV sets out the report of the Irish firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers in respect of certain merger benefit statements made in this announcement. Appendix V sets out the report of Goldman Sachs International in respect of certain merger benefit statements made in this announcement.

This announcement is being made pursuant to Rule 2.5 of the Irish Takeover Rules.

Mylan reserves the right, with the consent of the Irish Takeover Panel, to elect to implement the acquisition of Perrigo by way of court-approved scheme of arrangement under Section 201 of the Companies Act of 1963 of Ireland, as amended, or Sections 449 to 455 of the Companies Act of 2014 of Ireland, as the case may be.

RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT

The directors of Mylan accept responsibility for the information contained in this announcement, save that the only responsibility accepted by the directors of Mylan in respect of the information in this announcement relating to Perrigo, the Perrigo Group, the Perrigo Board and the persons connected with them, which has been compiled from published sources, has been to ensure that such information has been correctly and fairly reproduced or presented (and no steps have been taken by the directors of Mylan to verify this information). To the best of the knowledge and belief of the directors (who have taken all reasonable care to ensure that such is the case) the information contained in this announcement is in accordance with the facts and does not omit anything likely to affect the import of such information.

DEALING DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS

Under the provisions of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Rules, if any person is, or becomes, 'interested' (directly or indirectly) in, 1% or more of any class of 'relevant securities' of Perrigo or Mylan, all 'dealings' in any 'relevant securities' of Perrigo or Mylan (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such 'relevant securities') must be publicly disclosed by not later than 3:30 pm (New York time) on the 'business' day following the date of the relevant transaction. This requirement will continue until the date on which the 'offer period' ends. If two or more persons co-operate on the basis of any agreement, either express or tacit, either oral or written, to acquire an 'interest' in 'relevant securities' of Perrigo or Mylan, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Rules.

Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Irish Takeover Rules, all 'dealings' in 'relevant securities' of Perrigo by Mylan or 'relevant securities' of Mylan by Perrigo, or by any party acting in concert with either of them, must also be disclosed by no later than 12 noon (New York time) on the 'business' day following the date of the relevant transaction.

A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose 'relevant securities' 'dealings' should be disclosed, can be found on the Irish Takeover Panel's website at www.irishtakeoverpanel.ie.

Interests in securities arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an 'interest' by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.

Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Irish Takeover Rules, which can also be found on the Irish Takeover Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a dealing under Rule 8, please consult the Irish Takeover Panel's website at www.irishtakeoverpanel.ie or contact the Irish Takeover Panel on telephone number +353 1 678 9020 or fax number +353 1 678 9289.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This communication contains "forward-looking statements." These statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, statements about the proposed transaction, benefits and synergies of the proposed transaction, future opportunities for Mylan, Perrigo, or the combined company and products and any other statements regarding Mylan's, Perrigo's, or the combined company's future operations, anticipated business levels, future earnings, planned activities, anticipated growth, market opportunities, strategies, competition and other expectations and targets for future periods. These may often be identified by the use of words such as "will", "may", "could", "should", "would", "project", "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "plan", "estimate", "forecast", "potential", "intend", "continue", "target" and variations of these words or comparable words. Because forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties, actual future results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: uncertainties as to the timing of the proposed transaction; uncertainties as to whether Perrigo will cooperate with Mylan and whether Mylan will be able to consummate the proposed transaction; uncertainties as to whether shareholders will provide the requisite approvals for the proposed transaction; the possibility that competing offers will be made; the possibility that certain conditions to the consummation of the proposed transaction will not be satisfied; the possibility that Mylan will be unable to obtain regulatory approvals for the proposed transaction or be required, as a condition to obtaining regulatory approvals, to accept conditions that could reduce the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction; the ability to meet expectations regarding the accounting and tax treatments of the proposed transaction, changes in relevant tax and other laws, including but not limited to changes in healthcare and pharmaceutical laws and regulations in the US and abroad; the integration of Perrigo being more difficult, time-consuming or costly than expected; operating costs, customer loss and business disruption (including, without limitation, difficulties in maintaining relationships with employees, customers, clients or suppliers) being greater than expected following the proposed transaction; the retention of certain key employees of Perrigo being difficult; the possibility that Mylan may be unable to achieve expected synergies and operating efficiencies in connection with the proposed transaction within the expected time-frames or at all and to successfully integrate Perrigo; expected or targeted future financial and operating performance and results; the capacity to bring new products to market, including but not limited to where Mylan uses its business judgment and decides to manufacture, market and/or sell products, directly or through third parties, notwithstanding the fact that allegations of patent infringement(s) have not been finally resolved by the courts (i.e., an "at-risk launch"); success of clinical trials and Mylan's ability to execute on new product opportunities; the scope, timing and outcome of any ongoing legal proceedings and the impact of any such proceedings on financial condition, results of operations and/or cash flows; the ability to protect intellectual property and preserve intellectual property rights; the effect of any changes in customer and supplier relationships and customer purchasing patterns; the ability to attract and retain key personnel; changes in third-party relationships; the impact of competition; changes in the economic and financial conditions of the businesses of Mylan, Perrigo, or the combined company; the inherent challenges, risks, and costs in identifying, acquiring and integrating complementary or strategic acquisitions of other companies, products or assets and in achieving anticipated synergies; uncertainties and matters beyond the control of management; and inherent uncertainties involved in the estimates and judgments used in the preparation of financial statements, and the providing of estimates of financial measures, in accordance with GAAP and related standards or on an adjusted basis. For more detailed information on the risks and uncertainties associated with Mylan's business activities, see the risks described in Mylan Inc.'s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended 31 December 2014 and our other filings with the SEC.

Mylan undertakes no obligation to update any statements herein for revisions or changes after the date of this release, except as required by law.

NO PROFIT FORECAST / ASSET VALUATIONS

No statement in this announcement is intended to constitute a profit forecast for any period, nor should any statements be interpreted to mean that earnings or earnings per share will necessarily be greater or lesser than those for the relevant preceding financial periods for Mylan or Perrigo as appropriate. No statement in this announcement constitutes an asset valuation.

SYNERGY STATEMENT

There are various material assumptions underlying the Synergy Statement, which may result in the value in the Synergy Statement being materially greater or less than estimated. The Synergy Statement should therefore be read in conjunction with the key assumptions underlying such estimates.

The Synergy Statement should not be construed as a profit forecast or interpreted to mean that the combined earnings of Mylan and Perrigo in any period following this announcement would necessarily match or be greater than or be less than those of Mylan and/or Perrigo for the relevant preceding financial period or any other period.

The Synergy Statement has been reported on for the purposes of Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Irish Takeover Rules by (i) the Irish firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers; and (ii) Goldman Sachs International.  Copies of their respective reports are included in Appendix IV and Appendix V to this announcement. Each of the Irish firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers and Goldman Sachs International has given and not withdrawn its consent to the issue of this announcement with the inclusion of its report.

Unless Mylan otherwise determines, condition (a) shall be capable of being satisfied, or being treated as satisfied, only at the time when all of the other conditions (b) to (w) inclusive, shall have been satisfied, fulfilled or, to the extent permitted, waived.  Mylan reserves the right to waive in whole or in part all or any of conditions (b) to (w) (excluding conditions (j) to (l) to the extent applicable to the Offer or its implementation).

In such event, the scheme of arrangement will be implemented on the same terms (subject to appropriate amendments), so far as applicable, as those which would apply to the Offer. In particular, condition (a) will not apply and the scheme of arrangement will become effective and binding on the following:

(i)

approval at a court meeting or any separate class meeting, if applicable, which may be required by the court (or any adjournment thereof) by a majority in number of the holders of Perrigo Shares present and voting, either in person or by proxy, representing 75% or more in value of the Perrigo Shares held by such holders;

(v)

 

that statement about Mylan's annualized three year total shareholder return is sourced from Bloomberg and is as of March 31, 2015; and

   

 

(vi)

 

The bases of belief (including sources of information and assumptions made) that support the Synergy Statement are set forth in the following paragraphs.  The Synergy Statement has been reported on in accordance with Rule 19.3(b) of the Irish Takeover Rules.

   
 

Expected sources of the anticipated annual pre-tax operational synergies include the benefits of savings associated with integration and optimization across cost components and functions, including the following:

   
 

o  

Optimizing global back-office, manufacturing, selling and distribution infrastructure;

   
 

o  

Cost efficiencies and operating leverage resulting from increased scale;

   
 

o  

Research and development savings from elimination of overlapping costs; and

   
 

o  

Elimination of redundant public company costs.

   
 

When evaluating the potential annual pre-tax operational synergies, Mylan assumed the following:

   
 

o  

That the Offer will be consummated and, following the consummation of the Offer, Mylan will acquire compulsorily any Perrigo Shares not acquired or agreed to be acquired pursuant to the Offer or otherwise;

   
 

o  

That there will be no material impact on Mylan arising from any decisions made by competition authorities;

   
 

o  

That there will be no material change to the market dynamics affecting Mylan and/or Perrigo following the consummation of the Offer or the compulsory acquisition by Mylan of any Perrigo Shares not acquired or agreed to be acquired pursuant to the Offer or otherwise; and

   
 

o  

That there will be no material change to exchange rates following the consummation of the Offer or the compulsory acquisition by Mylan of any Perrigo Shares not acquired or agreed to be acquired pursuant to the Offer or otherwise.

   
 

In establishing the estimate of potential annual pre-tax operational synergies, Mylan assumed that Perrigo's operations, processes and procedures are comparable to those of Mylan's related operations, except where publicly available information clearly indicates otherwise.  Mylan's management, aided by its previous integration experience and its own understanding of Perrigo's operations and cost structure based on its market intelligence and experience, has determined the source and scale of potential recurring pre-tax operational synergies.  In addition to such information from Mylan's management team, the sources of information that Mylan has used to arrive at the estimate of potential annual pre-tax operational synergies, include:

   
 

o  

Perrigo's annual, quarterly and current reports filed with the SEC;

   
 

o  

Perrigo presentations;

   
 

o  

Perrigo's website;

   
 

o  

Analyst research;

   
 

o  

Other public information;

   
 

o  

Mylan's knowledge of the industry and of Perrigo; and

   
 

o  

Mylan's experience with respect to synergies in connection with previous transactions.

   
 

There remains an inherent risk in relying on the Synergy Statement.  The Synergy Statement should not be construed as a profit forecast or interpreted to mean that Mylan earnings in any period subsequent to the consummation of the Offer would necessarily match or be greater than or be less than those of Mylan and/or Perrigo for the relevant preceding financial period or any other period.

Mylan N.V:  Proposed Acquisition of Perrigo Company plc

We report on the potential operational synergies statement (the "Synergy Statement") by the directors of Mylan N.V. (the "Company") set out in the Rule 2.5 Announcement (the "Announcement") dated 24 April 2015, to the effect that:

"Mylan expects the combination to result in at least $800 million of annual pre-tax operational synergies by the end of year four following the consummation of the offer."

The Synergy Statement has been made in the context of disclosure in Appendix II of the Announcement setting out the basis of the belief of the Directors of the Company (the "Directors") supporting the Synergy Statement and their analysis and explanation of the underlying constituent elements.

This report is required by Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Irish Takeover Panel Act 1997, Takeover Rules, 2013 (the "Rules") and is given for the purpose of complying with that rule and for no other purpose.

Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of the Directors of the Company to make the Synergy Statement in accordance with the Rules.

It is our responsibility and that of the Financial Adviser to form our respective opinions as required by Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Rules, as to whether the Synergy Statement has been made by the Directors with due care and consideration.

Save for any responsibility which we may have to those persons to whom this report is expressly addressed and for any responsibility arising under Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Rules to any person as and to the extent therein provided, to the fullest extent permitted by law we do not assume any responsibility and will not accept any liability to any other person for any loss suffered by any such other person as a result of, arising out of, or in connection with this report or our statement, required by and given solely for the purposes of complying with Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Rules, consenting to its inclusion in the Announcement.

Basis of Opinion

We conducted our work in accordance with the Standards for Investment Reporting issued by the Auditing Practices Board in theUnited Kingdom and published by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland.  We have discussed the Synergy Statement together with the relevant bases of belief (including sources of information and assumptions) with the Directors of the Company and with the Financial Adviser.  Our work did not involve any independent examination of any of the financial or other information underlying the Synergy Statement.

Since the Synergy Statement and the assumptions on which it is based relate to the future and may therefore be affected by unforeseen events, we can express no opinion as to whether the actual benefits achieved will correspond to those anticipated in the Synergy Statement and the differences may be material.

Our work has not been carried out in accordance with auditing or other standards and practices generally accepted in the United States of America or other jurisdictions and accordingly should not be relied upon as if it had been carried out in accordance with those standards and practices.

Opinion

In our opinion, on the basis of the foregoing, the Directors have made the Synergy Statement, in the form and context in which it is made, with due care and consideration.

Yours sincerely
