"Mori has done an outstanding job of moving the Company forward during his tenure as Vice Chairman," said Joseph C. Papa, Perrigo's President and CEO. "The strategic direction put in place under Mori's leadership, with its emphasis on continued growth of the generic Rx business in the US and expansion of the API business around the world will remain in place, and the Company will continue to move forward under the current business plan."

After his departure, the Global Generic and API leadership team will report directly to Perrigo's President and CEO. Rafi Lebel, EVP and General Manager of Perrigo Israel, who has been with the Company for more than 19 years, will continue to lead the API, Consumer Products and Pharmaceutical Diagnostics businesses.

Mr. Papa stated, "I am confident that Mori and his team will continue to manage the Perrigo Israel businesses well during this time of transition and I look forward to working directly with the team in the future."

Arkin said, "I have been proud to work with our leadership team to build Perrigo into the global company that it is today and to drive value for our shareholders. As a member of the board I will work with the leadership team, continuing the focus on key business initiatives and maintenance of the momentum we've established. I am committed to making this a smooth transition."
