08:08 EDTAGNAllergan board unanimously rejects unsolicited exchange offer from Valeant
Allergan (AGN) announced that its Board of Directors, after consultation with its independent financial and legal advisors, unanimously determined that Valeant Pharmaceuticals International's (VRX) unsolicited exchange offer to acquire all outstanding common shares of Allergan is grossly inadequate, substantially undervalues the company, creates significant risks and uncertainties for Allergan stockholders, and is not in the best interests of the company and its stockholders. Accordingly, the Board strongly recommends that Allergan stockholders not tender any Allergan shares to Valeant. Pursuant to the Valeant exchange offer, Allergan stockholders would exchange each share of common stock of the company for 0.83 shares of Valeant common stock and $72.00 in cash, or subject to proration, an amount of cash or a number of Valeant common shares with the implied value set forth in the exchange offer. The company noted that the implied value of the Exchange Offer is $173.20 per share, based on the closing price of Valeantís stock on June 20, 2014, which is substantially lower than the initial $179.25 per share implied value of Valeantís May 30, 2014 re-revised proposal, which also included a contingent value right that is not included in the Exchange Offer. ďOur Board is unanimous in its determination that Valeantís unsolicited exchange offer is grossly inadequate, substantially undervalues Allergan, and is not in the best interests of Allergan and its stockholders," said David E.I. Pyott, Allergan's Chairman of the Board and CEO. ďThe Board strongly recommends that Allergan stockholders reject Valeantís exchange offer and prevent Valeant from taking control of Allergan at a price that does not appropriately reflect the underlying value of Allerganís assets, operations and prospects, including our industry-leading position and projected growth opportunities. Allergan has a track record of consistently acting in the best interests of its stockholders and the Board continues to be confident that Allergan will create significantly more value than Valeantís proposal.Ē

Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) commented on the announcement that Allergan (AGN) and Actavis (ACT) have entered into a definitive agreement under which Actavis will acquire all outstanding shares of Allergan stock: "We have seen the announcement that Allergan and Actavis have made, and while we will review any such agreement in determining our course of action, Valeant cannot justify to its own shareholders paying a price of $219 or more per share for Allergan. Our business is performing extremely well as evidenced by our third quarter results, our expected strong fourth quarter, and our robust outlook for 2015, and I am confident in our continued ability to generate exceptional shareholder value. We will remain focused on delivering strong organic results and evaluating acquisition opportunities as we always have: prudently, in a disciplined manner, and in the best interests of our shareholders."
