05:09 EDTVRXAllergan 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.
