Date:10/4/2007

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mylan Inc. (NYSE: MYL) today announced that it and its subsidiary Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. have entered into an agreement to settle pending litigation with UCB Societe Anonyme and UCB Pharma Inc. (collectively, UCB) relating to Levetiracetam Tablets, 250mg, 500mg and 750mg, the generic version of UCB's Keppra(R).

Litigation between Mylan and UCB has been pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia since March 2004. The lawsuit involved U.S. Patent No. 4,943,639, which expires on July 14, 2008.

If granted, pediatric exclusivity relating to the '639 patent would extend to Jan. 14, 2009. Mylan's entry into the market could come sooner than Nov. 1, 2008, if the FDA does not grant UCB pediatric exclusivity.
