Date:5/24/2012

PITTSBURGH, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced that Mylan Specialty L.P., f/k/a Dey Pharma, L.P., has entered into an agreement with Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc., f/k/a Sepracor Inc., to resolve the parties' patent litigation relating to Sunovion's Brovana® product.

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York's Final Judgment and Order notes that the parties have entered into a settlement and license agreement and that Sunovion has acknowledged that two Mylan patents are valid, enforceable and infringed by Sunovion's Brovana® product. These patents expire on June 22, 2021. The terms of the parties' agreement are confidential.

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch commented, "We are pleased with this settlement and remain confident in the intellectual property protecting Perforomist®, as well as our combination product for the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), currently in development. We believe this settlement and judgment by the Court further strengthen the potential of our Specialty franchise and its portfolio of products."

Mylan intends to appeal the judgment concerning other Mylan patents that were litigated.
