BASINGSTOKE, England, March 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPGY) the global specialty biopharmaceutical company announces its preliminary results prepared under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for the twelve months to December 31, 2007.
On February 21, 2008 Shire announced its results for the same period under US GAAP.
Notes to Editors
Shire's strategic goal is to become the leading specialty biopharmaceutical company that focuses on meeting the needs of the specialist physician. Shire focuses its business on attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), human genetic therapies (HGT), gastrointestinal (GI) and renal diseases. The structure is sufficiently flexible to allow Shire to target new therapeutic areas to the extent opportunities arise through acquisitions. Shire's in-licensing, merger and acquisition efforts are focused on products in niche markets with strong intellectual property protection either in the US or Europe. Shire believes that a carefully selected portfolio of products with relatively small-scale sales forces will deliver strong results.
