05:09 EDTAGNAllergan comments on Pershing Square delivery of additional requests
Allergan (AGN) commented on Pershing Square Capital Management delivery of additional requests from stockholders owning 1.5% of Allerganís shares to call a Special Meeting of Stockholders. Allergan will review these requests in addition to the requests from stockholders owning 2.8% of Allerganís shares that were delivered on September 3. The company issued the following statement: Notwithstanding Pershing Square and Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) efforts to change the subject, Allergan recognizes that what actually matters is value, and thatís what the company is focusing on delivering to stockholders. In that regard, Allerganís current strategic plan is expected to deliver a compounded annual growth rate of greater than 20% EPS growth, including estimated 2016 EPS at approximately $10.00. Allergan has already scheduled the Special Meeting for December 18. As such, the delivery of additional requests for the Special Meeting by Pershing Square is not a meaningful development. The lawsuit in California is seeking an order barring Valeant, Pershing Square, Ackman, and entities affiliated with them from voting shares that Allergan believes were acquired in violation of the federal securities laws, including insider trading. If Allerganís motion for a preliminary injunction is granted, it would prevent Valeant, Pershing Square, and Ackman from voting their shares at any meeting of stockholders.

16:04 EDTAGNPershing Square reports 9.7% stake in Allergan, sends letter to board
Pershing Square Capital Management sent a letter to the board of Allergan that highlights several reasons why Allergan is extremely shareholder unfriendly and why now is the time for Allergan's management team to wake up. In the letter, Pershing Square said: "Since the bid was announced in April, 75% of Allerganís shareholders have sold all or a portion of their investment including the companyís largest shareholder, which has sold its entire position. These shareholders are sending the board a message. They would not have sold if they believed that Allergan stock was worth more than current values... We note CFO Jeff Edwards recent decision to retire from the company at age 53 for family reasons, and his replacement by an investor relations executive rather than an experienced public company CFO. The notion that Allergan should execute the largest acquisition in its history led by an investor relations executive is a frightening proposition. While we respect an executiveís need to retire from a company for family reasons, Edwards exit also calls into question the companyís forward earnings guidance which shareholders expected him to execute on when the Company presented these projections on July 21st. I had expected that at some point one or more directors would have woken up and smelled the coffee. There is still time for a subset of directors to rescue their reputations by taking over leadership of this process from David Pyott and his handpicked advisors and doing what you are paid $400,000 per year to do on behalf of the companyís owners."
