Perrigo Company Receives Final Approval on Clobetasol Propionate Foam
Date:3/11/2008

Court Issues Temporary Restraining Order

ALLEGAN, Mich., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perrigo Company (Nasdaq: PRGO; TASE) today announced that it has received final approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for Clobetasol Propionate Foam, 0.05%.

The product is a topical corticosteroid indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe dermatosis of the scalp. Sales for the brand, Olux(R) Foam, 0.05%, were approximately $85 million according to Wolters Kluwer data for the 12 months ending January 2008. As the first filer, Perrigo will be eligible for 180 days of generic marketing exclusivity once it launches the product.

Perrigo's Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa stated, "We are obviously excited about this approval. This approval reflects our on-going efforts to make quality healthcare more affordable for our customers and drive value for our shareholders."

In late 2005, Connetics Corporation, which sells the brand drug, filed a patent infringement suit against Perrigo in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey following Perrigo's paragraph IV patent certification in its ANDA stating that the Connetics' patent is invalid, unenforceable, or will not be infringed by Perrigo's ANDA. In response to a motion filed by Connetics last Thursday, the Court temporarily restrained Perrigo, as of March 7, 2008, from manufacturing, using, offering to sell, selling or importing into the United States its product pending the outcome of a hearing on March 19, 2008. On that date, the Court will hear arguments on Perrigo's pending Summary Judgment Motion as well as Connetics' Motion for a Preliminary Injunction.
