(the "Company") convened a special meeting of its stockholders (the "Meeting"), relating to the Company's pending acquisition of Warner Chilcott Public Limited Company ("Warner Chilcott") through the formation of a new holding company incorporated in Ireland. The acquisition of Warner Chilcott will be effected by means of a "scheme of arrangement" under Irish law, pursuant to a transaction agreement, dated May 19, 2013, among the Company, Warner Chilcott, Actavis Limited ("New Actavis"), Actavis Ireland Holding Limited, Actavis W.C. Holding LLC and Actavis W.C. Holding 2 LLC ("MergerSub") (the "Transaction Agreement"). Pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, MergerSub, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of New Actavis, will merge with and into the Company (the "Merger"), the separate corporate existence of MergerSub will cease and the Company will continue as the surviving corporation. The Meeting was called to vote on the following proposals:

(1) Approval of Transaction Agreement and the Merger. Proposal to approve the Transaction Agreement and the Merger.

(2) Reduction of Share Premium of New Actavis to Create Distributable Reserves. Proposal to approve the creation of distributable reserves, by reducing all the share premium of New Actavis resulting from the issuance of New Actavis ordinary shares pursuant to the scheme of arrangement by which New Actavis will acquire Warner Chilcott.

(3) Advisory Vote on Compensation. Proposal to consider and vote upon, on a non-binding advisory basis, specified compensatory arrangements between the Company and its named executive officers relating to the Transaction Agreement.

(4) Adjournment Proposal. Proposal to approve any motion to adjourn the Actavis special meeting, or any adjournments thereof, to another time or place if necessary or appropriate (i) to solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient votes at the time of the Actavis special meeting to approve the Transaction Agreement and the merger, (ii) to provide to Actavis stockholders any supplement or amendment to the joint proxy statement/prospectus and/or
(iii) to disseminate any other information which is material to the Actavis stockholders voting at the special meeting.

There were 133,161,220 shares of common stock of the Company outstanding as of the record date for the Meeting (July 30, 2013). A quorum was present at the Meeting. Proposal 1 was approved by the stockholders of the Company, with 78% of the outstanding shares eligible to vote and 99% of the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the Meeting voting "FOR" Proposal 1.

Proposal 3 was approved by the stockholders of the Company, with 74% of the outstanding shares eligible to vote and 94% of the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the Meeting voting "FOR" Proposal 3. Because sufficient votes were received to pass Proposal 1, Proposal 4 was not voted upon at the Meeting. The voting results of Proposals 1, 2 and 3 are as follows:
