Date:2/20/2009

PHILADELPHIA and DUBLIN, February 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPGY), the global specialty biopharmaceutical company, announces that it has signed an agreement with UCB to acquire the worldwide rights to EQUASYM(R) IR and XL (methylphenidate hydrochloride) (excluding the USA, Canada and Barbados) used for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

EQUASYM XL is approved and marketed in 10 countries (outside the USA, Canada, and Barbados), and EQUASYM IR is currently approved and marketed in four countries. In 2008 the products generated aggregate net sales of EUR16.9 million in these territories.

This acquisition will broaden the scope of Shire's ADHD portfolio and will facilitate immediate access to the European ADHD market as well as provide Shire the opportunity to enter additional world markets. EQUASYM will allow Shire to build on its status as the leader in the United States ADHD market with patients and customers in Europe and establishes a solid bridge for Shire's other ADHD treatments in territories outside of the United States. VYVANSE(R) (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate), used for the treatment of ADHD in pediatric and adult patients, was launched by Shire in the United States in July 2007 and is in Phase 3 trials in Europe.

As part of this transaction, approximately 20 sales and sales management personnel will transfer to Shire, providing an established sales force for EQUASYM and other potential ADHD products.

Michael Cola, President of Shire's Specialty Pharmaceuticals business, commented:
