PHILADELPHIA -- March 5, 2013

Revitas today announced that Allergan, Inc. has gone live on the Revitas™
Flex™ strategic platform with the implementation of the Revitas CARS® and
Revitas Validata applications, the first stage in a migration to the Revitas
suite of solutions for Enterprise Revenue Dynamics (ERD). Allergan, a
multi-specialty healthcare company focused on discovering, developing, and
commercializing innovative pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, and
over-the-counter consumer products, needed a common master data source that
would replace multiple information silos, including customer, trading partner,
and product data. The comprehensive and integrated Revitas Flex platform
enables Allergan to more effectively manage and execute contract pricing terms
and complex pricing scenarios, ensure the accuracy of rebate reimbursement,
and reduce profit margin erosion.

“Through the single, strategic Revitas Flex platform, Allergan is able to
share master data across its entire suite of integrated applications for
managing contracts, pricing, and compliance,” said Al Smith, President and
Chief Operating Officer at Revitas. “This initial implementation offers
Allergan a first line of defense against the complexity and volume of
calculations required to execute chargebacks, rebates, and other incentives—a
major source of lost revenue for pharma companies. Allergan’s decision to move
to the Flex platform offers yet another example of how ERD can optimize
performance and boost a company’s bottom line through the consolidation of
systems across multiple business functions.”

By merging several databases into one shared data source on a strategic ERD
platform, Allergan gains greater visibility into its pricing initiatives and
is better equipped to safeguard its revenue. Using the Revitas CARS solution,
Allergan is able to determine, manage, and execute rebates, chargebacks, and
other pricing incentives. By automating contract pricing and reimbursement
processes, the Revitas CARS pricing incentive management solution prevents
overpayments, underpayments, duplicate payments, and other costly errors.

Additionally, the Revitas Validata application integrates with Revitas CARS
and helps Allergan avoid the payment of erroneous claims for rebates and
administrative fees based on dirty script-level data.Validata is a
comprehensive and integrated solution for managed care rebate claims
validation. The Validata product improves the claims process by automating and
simplifying the import, validation, summarization, and analysis of data –
dramatically reducing inaccurate and duplicate claims and payments. This also
reduces administrative overhead, minimizes the incidence of erroneous
payments, and supports compliance initiatives.

The next phases of the broad-suite adoption of the Revitas Flex platform for
Allergan will be the implementation of the Revitas™ Medicaid Rebates and
Revitas™ Government Pricing applications, as well as the Revitas™ Contract
Manager solution. By implementing the Revitas suite, Allergan will be able to
leverage the full value of ERD to create more revenue opportunities, protect
profit margins, and reduce risk by optimizing the business performance of
contracts, pricing, and compliance.
