              Endo completes acquisition of DAVA Pharmaceuticals  PR Newswire  DUBLIN, Aug. 6, 2014  DUBLIN, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --    oAdds high-margin marketed generics portfolio, robust near-term ANDA     pipeline to Endo's existing generics portfolio   oAbility to leverage Endo's proven commercial expertise to maximize     profitable growth   oCompany raises expected 2014 revenues to a range from $2.78 billion to     $2.86 billion, an increase versus prior range of $2.72 billion to $2.80     billion.   oCompany raises expected 2014 adjusted diluted EPS to a range from $4.00 to     $4.20, an increase versus prior range of $3.80 to $4.00.   oCompany expects 2014 reported diluted (GAAP) loss per share to be in the     range from $1.56 to $1.36.  Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of DAVA Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately-held company specializing in generic pharmaceuticals, with a portfolio of marketed, pre-launch and pipeline products, for $575 million in cash, with additional cash consideration of up to $25 million contingent on the achievement of certain sales milestones. The DAVA portfolio is well-positioned for continued strong financial performance with its existing commercial products and attractive near-term pipeline, and is a natural fit with Endo's U.S. generics business.  "We are encouraged by the earlier than expected close of the DAVA acquisition and are excited by the addition of the business to our generics portfolio." said Rajiv De Silva, president and chief executive officer of Endo. "The closing of DAVA further strengthens Endo's generics platform and enhances our earnings growth and cash flow in 2014 and beyond."  2014 Financial Guidance  Endo's estimates are based on projected results for the twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2014 and management's current belief about prescription and procedure trends, pricing levels, inventory levels and the anticipated timing of future product launches and events. The company's guidance for reported (GAAP) earnings per share does not include any estimates for potential new corporate development transactions. For the full twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2014, at current exchange rates, Endo estimates:    oTotal revenue to be between $2.78 billion and $2.86 billion   oReported (GAAP) diluted loss per share to be between$1.56 and $1.36   oAdjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $4.00 and $4.20   oAdjusted diluted earnings per share assume full year adjusted diluted     shares outstanding of 157 million  The company's 2014 guidance is based on certain assumptions including:    oAdjusted gross margin of between 63 percent and 65 percent   oYear-over-year mid-to-high single-digit percentage decrease of Adjusted     Operating Expenses   oAdjusted interest expense of approximately $220 million   oAdjusted effective tax rate of between 23 percent and 24 percent  Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components and Non-GAAP Adjusted diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and its components and diluted EPS. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal setting and performance measurement, we stress that these are Non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies. These Non-GAAP financial measures are presented solely to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses performance. See Endo's Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an explanation of Endo's reasons for using non-GAAP measures.
