leadership position in the growing 'physician dispensed' topical aesthetics
skin care category. Most importantly, the acquisition will allow us to expand
our product portfolio to better meet the needs of our existing base of
physician customers and their patients.”

Following the acquisition, Allergan plans to operate SkinMedica as a separate
global business and will leverage a number of Allergan’s existing preferred
customer programs with the SkinMedica product line to provide additional
benefits to physicians and patients. Bob Rhatigan, who currently serves as
Senior Vice President, Facial Aesthetics, Allergan, will assume the role of
Senior Vice President, General Manager and Chief Executive, SkinMedica. Mary
Fisher, Chief Executive Officer, SkinMedica, will join Allergan and assist Mr.
Rhatigan in the acquisition integration to ensure the maximization of revenue
building opportunities. The Allergan topical aesthetics sales force and the
SkinMedica sales force will continue to represent their respective product
lines over the near term. Following the completion of the acquisition, a
larger and combined SkinMedica sales force will assume responsibility for the
line of products including the revolutionary SkinMedica TNS product line,
Allergan’s VIVITÉ® product line and LATISSE®, the one and only FDA approved
product to treat inadequate or not enough eye lashes.
