Grifols Announces Combined Operations With Talecris to Begin a New Era as a Global Leader of Life-Saving Plasma Therapeutics
Date:6/8/2011

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: GRFS) – Grifols, a global healthcare company and biopharmaceutical manufacturer based in Barcelona, Spain, today announced that it has officially begun to merge its operations with Talecris Biotherapeutics in order to function as one company, following its acquisition of Talecris on June 1.  Through the acquisition, Grifols will build upon its 70-year legacy of creating life-saving medicines and products by incorporating Talecris' substantial experience and skill in producing plasma protein therapies.

Combining the respective capabilities of the two companies will allow Grifols to extract more products from each liter of plasma and thus increase the quantity of products and choices available to patients. The company's expanded global footprint will also improve patient access to critical-care protein therapies that are not widely available in many countries.

"Under Victor Grifols' leadership we expect that family culture to expand in the United States.
