On June 16, 2014, Allergan, Inc.

The Company added that as previously announced, its Board of Directors had determined that the re-revised unsolicited proposal dated May 30, 2014 by Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. and Valeant substantially undervalues the Company, creating significant risks and uncertainties for the stockholders of Allergan, and is not in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.
