Watson Prices $850 Million of Senior Unsecured Notes
Date:8/18/2009

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: WPI), a specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced the pricing of a debt offering of $450.0 million of 5.000% senior notes due 2014 and $400.0 million of 6.125% senior notes due 2019, for a total offering of $850.0 million in aggregate principal amount. The offering is expected to close on August 24, 2009, subject to market conditions and other factors.

Watson intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund a portion of the cash consideration for Watson's previously announced acquisition of the privately-held Arrow Group, to redeem the $575.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its contingent senior debentures due 2023 and to repay $100.0 million of term loan borrowings under its existing credit agreement. The senior unsecured notes offering is not conditioned on the completion of the acquisition of the Arrow Group and the notes are not subject to a mandatory redemption if the acquisition is not consummated.

Watson has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus) with the SEC relating to the offering. This offering of senior unsecured notes may be made only by means of a prospectus supplement and an accompanying prospectus. Before investing, investors should read the prospectus, the prospectus supplement and other documents that the company has filed with the SEC for more complete information about Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and this offering.
