Perrigo Closes Acquisition of Sergeant’s Pet Care Products

ALLEGAN, Mich., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Perrigo Company (Nasdaq: PRGO; TASE) today announced that it has closed the acquisition of Sergeant’s Pet Care Products, Inc. (Sergeant’s), a privately-held, Omaha, Nebraska-based manufacturer of over-the-counter companion animal healthcare products, for approximately $285 million in cash. As previously highlighted, Perrigo expects to receive a significant tax benefit generated from the amortization of the step-up in tax basis resulting from the acquisition of Sergeant’s assets. This increase in basis is expected to result in cash tax savings to Perrigo over the next 15 years. The estimated net present value of these savings is approximately $50 million.

Perrigo Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa stated, “We are very pleased to welcome the Sergeant’s team to the Perrigo family. This acquisition allows us to expand our Consumer Healthcare portfolio by penetrating the pet care category, an adjacency of interest to our retail customers. Sergeant’s has a proven record of innovation and high quality manufacturing with great customer service. We are excited to begin offering flea and tick, health and well-being, and consumable products at affordable prices to pet owners.”
