Par Pharmaceutical Companies Announces Settlement in Principle Regarding Certain Drug Pricing Lawsuits
Date:4/27/2011

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Par Pharmaceutical Companies, Inc. (NYSE: PRX) announced today it reached a settlement in principle to resolve claims brought by the pharmacy Ven-A-Care of the Florida Keys, Inc. on behalf of the United States, Texas, and Florida under state and federal law, as well as claims brought by the Attorneys Generals of Alaska, South Carolina, and Kentucky under state law for $154 million (pre-tax).

Together with many other pharmaceutical manufacturers, Par is named as a defendant in numerous civil lawsuits that relate to drug price reporting by such companies. The cases, which are pending in federal and state courts, generally allege that the prices reported by pharmaceutical manufacturers caused government entities to pay inflated reimbursements for drugs under Medicaid or other programs. Par denies the allegations.

Upon execution of definitive settlement documents and certain government and court approvals, the settlement will resolve lawsuits relating to federal contributions to state Medicaid programs in 49 states (excluding Illinois), and claims of Texas, Florida, Alaska, South Carolina and Kentucky relating to their Medicaid programs. The settlement will eliminate the majority of the alleged damages asserted against Par in the various drug pricing litigations and removes all trials that had been scheduled to date.
