David Brennan, Chief Executive Officer said:

"Disciplined execution of our strategy has delivered a good performance in 2011 in the face of intensified pricing pressure and generic competition. Our strong cash flow supported a significant increase in cash distributions to shareholders and continued investment to drive future growth and value. While the further expected losses of market exclusivity make for a challenging 2012 outlook, we remain committed to a long-term, focused, R&D based strategy, and today we have announced further steps to drive productivity in all areas to improve returns on our investment in innovation."
