Form 8-K for WARNER CHILCOTT PLC


9-Apr-2013

Other Events


Item 8.01. Other Events.

On April 5, 2013, one putative class action was filed against Warner Chilcott plc and certain of its subsidiaries (together, the "Company"), Actavis, Inc. and one of its subsidiaries (together, "Actavis") and Lupin Ltd. and one of its subsidiaries (together, "Lupin") in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and another putative class action was filed against the Company, Actavis and Lupin in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, in each case by purported indirect purchasers of the Company's LOESTRIN 24 FE product.

In each complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they paid higher prices for the Company's LOESTRIN 24 FE product as a result of the Company's and Actavis's and/or Lupin's alleged actions preventing or delaying generic competition in violation of U.S. federal antitrust laws and/or state laws. Plaintiffs seek, among other things, unspecified treble, multiple and/or punitive damages, injunctive relief and attorneys' fees.

While the Company has not yet been served with the complaints, and no class has been certified, it is reviewing the allegations and intends to vigorously defend itself in the litigation when and if served. However, it is impossible to predict with certainty the outcome of any litigation, and the Company can offer no assurance as to the timing of any such litigation or whether the Company will be successful in any such defense. In addition, repetitive class action complaints asserting similar claims and allegations are common in antitrust litigation, and the Company may be subject to additional complaints from plaintiffs of the same or other classes.
