Federal Trade Commission Files Complaint Against Par Pharmaceutical Over Court-Approved AndroGel(R) Litigation Settlement
Date:2/2/2009

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Par Pharmaceutical Companies, Inc. (NYSE: PRX) today announced that it learned after the close of business on Friday, January 30, 2009 that the Federal Trade Commission and the California Attorney General filed a lawsuit against Par in the U.S. District Court for the District of Central California.

Par was the second ANDA filer for testosterone gel 1% and therefore not eligible for 180 days of marketing exclusivity. However, the 2006 settlement allowed Par's early entry date to be the same as that obtained by the first ANDA filer. Par issued a press release on September 13, 2006 addressing further details of the 2006 court-approved settlement and contemporaneous business agreements.

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Approved the Settlement in 2006

In September 2006, Par's settlement with the makers of AndroGel(R) was entered and approved by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The court's Consent Judgment described the settlement as "a good
