Date:10/13/2009

ALLEGAN, Mich., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perrigo Company (Nasdaq: PRGO; TASE) today announced that it has filed an Abbreviated New Drug Application for over-the-counter (OTC) Minoxidil topical aerosol foam, 5%, a generic form of Men's Rogaine(®) Foam.

Men's Rogaine(®) (Minoxidil) topical aerosol foam, 5%, is a topical hair re-growth treatment indicated for the re-growth of hair on top of the scalp, and has estimated sales at retail of approximately $52 million annually.

Perrigo filed its ANDA for Minoxidil topical aerosol foam, 5%, containing a paragraph IV certification with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and notified Johnson & Johnson, the New Drug Application holder for Rogaine(®) Foam, and Stiefel Research Australia Pty. Ltd., the listed patent owner, of its filing. On October 9, 2009, Stiefel Research Australia Pty. Ltd. filed suit alleging patent infringement in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware to prevent Perrigo from proceeding with the commercialization of this product. This action formally initiates the process under the Hatch-Waxman Act.

Perrigo's Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa stated, "This is another example of how our ongoing focus on innovation and consistently bringing new products to market saves consumers money. Over the past 15 years Perrigo products have saved consumers over an estimated $10 billion compared to the national brand."
