Cash inflow from operating activities for the three months to September 30, 2008 increased by 126% to $279.4 million (2007: $123.7 million) due to strong cash generation from operations.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at September 30, 2008 totaled $505.1 million (December 31, 2007: $802.0 million). Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash decreased by $296.9 million during the nine months to September 30, 2008 as the strong cash inflow from operating activities was offset by the cash cost of acquiring a majority voting interest in Jerini ($462.5 million, net of cash acquired), investment in the new HGT manufacturing plant in Lexington, Massachusetts, the final milestone payment to Noven Pharmaceuticals Inc. ("Noven") for DAYTRANA, dividend payments and payments to acquire shares by the Employee Share Ownership Trust ("ESOT").
