Shire's New Product Portfolio Delivers Strong Quarterly Performance

months to September 30, 2008 were $8.6 million, a decrease of 16% (2007: $10.2 million). The impact of foreign exchange movements has contributed 10% to the reported decline; excluding unfavorable foreign exchange movements there has been a decrease of 6% compared to the same period in 2007.


Other royalties are primarily in respect of REMINYL and REMINYL XL (known as RAZADYNE and RAZADYNE ER in the US), a product marketed worldwide (excluding the UK and the Republic of Ireland) by Janssen Pharmaceutical N.V. ("Janssen"), an affiliate of Johnson & Johnson. Shire has exclusive marketing rights in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

In the US, patent infringement litigation brought by Synaptech and Janssen against several ANDA filers culminated in a trial in Delaware in 2007. Following a decision on August 28, 2008 which rendered the relevant patent invalid, generic versions of RAZADYNE were permitted to enter the US market.

Sales of the REMINYL/RAZADYNE range, for the symptomatic treatment of mild to moderately severe dementia of the Alzheimer's type, continue to grow in most countries however the entry of generics into the US market has severely decreased sales in that region. This decline was expected and is included in our forecasts.

Litigation proceedings relating to RAZADYNE, RAZADYNE ER, REMINYL and REMINYL XL are ongoing. Further information on these litigations can be found in our filings with the SEC, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year to December 31, 2007.
