Mylan to Retain Dey, L.P., Its Specialty Pharmaceutical Subsidiary
Date:9/8/2008

Mylan reaffirms adjusted diluted EPS guidance for '08, '09, '10 Dey expected to contribute positively to Mylan's adjusted diluted EPS

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Following the completion of a comprehensive review of strategic alternatives for Dey, L.P., Mylan Inc.'s (NYSE: MYL) branded specialty pharmaceutical subsidiary, Mylan announced today that it will retain the Dey business.

In addition, the company said it is reaffirming its adjusted diluted EPS guidance for 2008, 2009 and 2010 of $0.47 to $0.53, $0.90 to $1.10 and $1.50 to $1.70, respectively. It also said the retention of the Dey business is expected to contribute positively to Mylan's 2008, 2009 and 2010 adjusted diluted EPS projections. Management would have been in a position to reconfirm guidance without the contribution from the retention of Dey.

"I'm particularly pleased to be able to reaffirm our previous EPS guidance, especially in light of the recent strengthening of the dollar, as both our generics and branded businesses continue to perform well," said Mylan Vice Chairman and CEO Robert J. Coury. "After carefully analyzing all the options regarding Dey, it became clear that retaining the business was truly in the best interest of all stakeholders. This became evident since we rebased the business in February and took more control of the day-to-day operations of the company. The work that we have done is already producing results; we're currently outperforming our rebased expectations for 2008, and we stand to benefit even more from Dey's potential going forward."

In addition, the company said, Dey will be included in Mylan's ongoing initiatives to strengthen and optimize its global platform. As part of this activity, Mylan is realigning the business by:

-- Relocating the company's commercial operations from its Napa, Calif.,

facilities to the East Coast;

-- right-sizing Dey's R&D functions, and relocating them to other Mylan

locations;

-- transitioning Dey's manufacturing operations out of the Napa facility;

and

-- transitioning all G&A functions from Napa in parallel with the business

areas they support.

"These activities will position us to divest Dey's Napa facilities over the next two years," Coury said. "We are hopeful that we can find a buyer who may be able to maintain employment there."

Carolyn Myers, PhD, Dey's president said, "Since taking over management of Dey in January, I've been extremely pleased with the accomplishments we've achieved to date. They include the successful relaunch and repositioning of Perforomist. I am excited that Mylan has decided to retain this asset, and we see a tremendous amount of opportunity not only to enhance Dey's value, but further enhance Mylan's global value overall."

In addition to excluding one-time costs associated with the realignment of the Dey business, the company's reaffirmed financial guidance continues to exclude the following items:

-- Purchase accounting related charges, including amortization of

intangibles and the inventory basis step-up;

-- integration and other non-recurring expenses;

-- the non-cash goodwill impairment charge related to the Specialty

Segment that was recorded in the first quarter of 2008; and

-- recognition of previously deferred revenues related to the sale of our

rights to Bystolic.

Mylan Inc., which provides products to customers in more than 120 countries and territories, ranks among the leading diversified generic and specialty pharmaceutical companies in the world. The company maintains one of the industry's broadest -- and highest quality -- product portfolios, supported by a robust product pipeline; owns a controlling interest in the world's second largest active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturer; and operates a specialty business focused on respiratory and allergy therapies.
