Coury, Vice Chairman and CEO of Mylan, commented: "We are very proud of the role Mylan has played to date in Bystolic's development and commercialization in the U.S. and believe that today's agreement with Forest is evidence of the value we have created through this product. Today's announcement is just one of the many initiatives we have announced to enhance our strategic focus and ensure we are ideally positioned to maximize the significant opportunities of our world leading generics assets."

About Bystolic

Bystolic (nebivolol) is a novel beta blocker that was approved by the FDA in December 2007 and is approved and marketed in more than 65 countries outside of North America. Mylan licensed the U.S. and Canadian rights to Bystolic from Janssen Pharmaceutical N.V. in 2001, and obtained Janssen's consent to sub-license Bystolic to Forest Laboratories in those territories in an initial agreement completed in January 2006. Bystolic is a cardio-selective beta-1 blocker, with vasodilation properties and a favorable tolerability profile. Upon FDA approval, Bystolic has received five years of marketing exclusivity under the Hatch Waxman legislation. In addition there is an issued U.S. pharmaceutical composition of matter patent that expires in 2021, which may offer additional exclusivity.
