Date:4/3/2013

MONTREAL, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (NYSE: VRX and TSX: VRX) today announced that Valeant and Obagi Medical Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMPI) have executed an amendment to their Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated March 19, 2013.  Pursuant to the amendment, Valeant increased its offer to acquire Obagi from $19.75 to $24.00 per share in cash.

The offer documents will be amended to reflect the new offer price of $24.00 per share.  The expiration date of the tender offer will remain 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on April 23, 2013.
