Date:8/19/2007

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Par Pharmaceutical Companies, Inc. (NYSE: PRX) today announced it had begun shipping metoprolol succinate extended release 50 mg tablets. As previously announced, in November 2006 Par entered into a supply and distribution agreement with AstraZeneca in the U.S. to distribute metoprolol succinate extended release tablets, which is substitutable for AstraZeneca's TOPROL-XL(R) extended release tablets. Par began shipping 25 mg tablets of generic Toprol-XL at that time.

TOPROL-XL is a beta-1-selective (cardioselective) adrenoceptor-blocking agent, for oral administration, available as extended release tablets. TOPROL-XL has been formulated to provide a controlled and predictable release of metoprolol for once-daily administration.

Annual U.S. sales of TOPROL-XL in the 50 mg tablet are approximately $640 million, according to IMS Health.
