NORTH CHICAGO, Ill. and DUBLIN, June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AbbVie Inc. (NYSE: ABBV) and Allergan plc (NYSE: AGN)  announced that the companies have entered into a definitive transaction agreement under which AbbVie will acquire Allergan in a cash and stock transaction for a transaction equity value of approximately $63 billion, based on the closing price of AbbVie's common stock of $78.45 on June 24, 2019.

"This is a transformational transaction for both companies and achieves unique and complementary strategic objectives," said Richard A. Gonzalez, chairman and chief executive officer, AbbVie. "The combination of AbbVie and Allergan increases our ability to continue to deliver on our mission to patients and shareholders. With our enhanced growth platform to fuel industry-leading growth, this strategy allows us to diversify AbbVie's business while sustaining our focus on innovative science and the advancement of our industry-leading pipeline well into the future."

"This acquisition creates compelling value for Allergan's stakeholders, including our customers, patients and shareholders. With 2019 annual combined revenue of approximately $48 billion, scale in more than 175 countries, an industry-leading R&D pipeline and robust cash flows, our combined company will have the opportunity to make even bigger contributions to global health than either can alone," said Brent Saunders, chairman and chief executive officer, Allergan.  "Our fast-growing therapeutic areas, including our world class medical aesthetics, eye care, CNS and gastrointestinal businesses, will enhance AbbVie's strong growth platform and create substantial value for shareholders of both companies."

Strategic Rationale

  • New growth platforms and leadership positions to diversify and expand revenue base: The combined company will consist of several attractive franchises with leadership positions across immunology, hematologic oncology, medical aesthetics, neuroscience, women's health, eye care and virology.  Allergan's product portfolio will be enhanced by AbbVie's commercial strength, expertise and international infrastructure.
  • Immediate scale and enhanced profitability for AbbVie's growth platform: AbbVie's enhanced growth platform, comprised of growing and durable franchises across highly-attractive therapeutic areas, is expected to grow at a high-single digit annual growth rate well into the next decade, from more than $30 billion in 2020.
  • Financially attractive with immediate EPS accretion: This transaction is expected to be 10% accretive to adjusted earnings per share over the first full year following the close of the transaction, with peak accretion of greater than 20%.1  ROIC is expected to exceed AbbVie's cost of capital within the first full year.
  • Significant cash flow generation: The success and scale of the combined commercial business ensures funding capacity and flexibility for simultaneous robust pipeline investment, debt reduction and capital return to shareholders. The combined companies generated $19 billion in operating cash flow in 2018.

Structure and Governance

Upon completion of the transaction, AbbVie will continue to be incorporated in Delaware as AbbVie Inc. and have its principal executive offices in North Chicago, Ill.  AbbVie will continue to be led by Richard A. Gonzalez as chairman and chief executive officer. Two members of Allergan's Board, including chairman and chief executive officer, Brent Saunders, will join AbbVie's Board upon completion of the transaction.

Transaction Details

Under the terms of the Transaction Agreement, Allergan Shareholders will receive 0.8660 AbbVie Shares and $120.30 in cash for each Allergan Share that they hold, for a total consideration of $188.24 per Allergan Share.2 The transaction represents a 45% premium to the closing price of Allergan's Shares on June 24, 2019.

AbbVie anticipates that the Acquisition will provide annual pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions of at least $2 billion in year three while leaving investments in key growth franchises untouched. The synergies and other cost reductions will be a result of optimizing the research and early stage portfolio, and reducing overlapping R&D resources (~50%), driving efficiencies in SG&A, including sales and marketing and central support function costs (~40%), and eliminating redundancies in manufacturing and supply chain, and leveraging procurement spend (~10%). The synergies estimate excludes any potential revenue synergies.3

AbbVie is expected to generate significant annual operating cash flow, which will support a debt reduction target of $15 to $18 billion before the end of 2021, while also enabling a continued commitment to Baa2/BBB or better credit rating and continued dividend growth.

It is expected that, immediately after the closing of the Acquisition, AbbVie Shareholders will own approximately 83% of AbbVie on a fully diluted basis and the Allergan Shareholders will own approximately 17% of AbbVie on a fully diluted basis.

The transaction is subject to the Conditions set out in Appendix III of the Rule 2.5 Announcement, including certain regulatory approvals and approval by Allergan's Shareholders.

1 The statement that this transaction is earnings accretive should not be interpreted to mean that the earnings per share in the current or any future financial period will necessarily match or be greater than those for the relevant preceding financial period.

2 Subject to adjustment in accordance with the Exchange Ratio Modification Number.

3 There are various material assumptions underlying the synergies and other cost reductions which may result in the synergies and other cost reductions being materially greater or less than estimated. The estimates should therefore be read in conjunction with the bases and assumptions for these synergy numbers which are set out in Appendix I of this announcement. The synergies and other cost reductions have been reported on in accordance with Rule 19.3(b) of the Irish Takeover Rules by (i) PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and (ii) Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc. Copies of their respective reports are included in Appendix IV and Appendix V to this announcement. Each of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc has given and not withdrawn its consent to the issue of this announcement with the inclusion of its report and context in which it is included. The synergy and earnings enhancement statements in this section should not be construed as a profit forecast or interpreted to mean that the earnings of AbbVie and/or Allergan in 2019, or in any subsequent period, would necessarily match or be greater than or be less than those of AbbVie and/or Allergan for the relevant financial period or any other period. The synergies estimate excludes any potential revenue synergies.

Key Questions and Answers

1. What are the strategic and financial benefits of this transaction?

This transaction achieves unique and complementary strategic objectives for both organizations. Combining Allergan's diversified on-market product portfolio with AbbVie's growth platform and deep expertise in R&D, commercial strength and international footprint will create a leading biopharmaceutical company with approximately $48 billion in combined 2019 revenue. This combination also enhances AbbVie's ability for robust investment in its industry-leading pipeline of innovative therapies throughout the next decade and enables AbbVie to deliver on its mission to better serve patients.

The financial benefits include immediate 10% earnings-per-share accretion over the first full year of the combination, with peak accretion of greater than 20%. The transaction will generate annual pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions of at least $2 billion in year three, with a return on invested capital to exceed AbbVie's cost of capital within the first full year.

2. When do you anticipate this transaction to close and what is the leadership structure for the new combined company?

We anticipate closing of the transaction by early 2020, subject to regulatory and Allergan's shareholder approvals. The combined company will continue to be incorporated in Delaware and have its principal executive offices in North Chicago, Ill.Richard A. Gonzalez will serve as the chairman and chief executive officer through the Humira loss of exclusivity in 2023.  AbbVie's Board will include two Allergan board members, including Allergan's chairman and chief executive officer, Brent Saunders.

3.  Does this transaction represent a change in your fundamental strategy for AbbVie?

This transaction enhances our ability to continue to advance our mission to develop a consistent stream of innovative medicines to create a remarkable impact on people's lives.  AbbVie will now have a more diversified product portfolio with several leadership positions in high value therapeutic areas and an industry-leading pipeline of next-generation therapies with ensured capacity for continued investment across our innovative pipeline.

4.  What is the benefit of doing a transaction of this size versus smaller bolt-on acquisitions?

This transaction is designed to meet a different strategic imperative than smaller bolt-on acquisitions. Its ability to deliver immediate scale to the AbbVie growth platform with Allergan's on-market diversified product portfolio meets our strategic goal to reduce reliance on Humira and allows us to continue expanding our focus on high-innovation science throughout the next decade. 

Smaller bolt-on acquisitions provide opportunities for future growth, but also require significant R&D investment amid scientific and clinical uncertainty. This transaction offers immediate compelling financial and strategic value to our shareholders with a much lower risk profile.

5.  What is your level of confidence in your ability to operate the combined company given that it represents somewhat of a change in the mix of businesses from what AbbVie has been?

We are highly confident in our ability to enhance the value of Allergan's existing commercial franchises and capitalize on next-generation pipeline programs. AbbVie has a proven track record of industry leading financial performance and commercial expertise in building market-leading franchises in immunology, hematologic oncology, and other areas, and our geographic scale will enable us to unlock additional value in Allergan's franchises. Our senior leadership team is experienced in leading diverse businesses and we are confident in our future success.

6.  What are your plans for capital allocation for the combined company?  How do you intend to address the debt levels of the combined company?

The combined company will produce robust cash flow which will support continued growth of our dividend, further investment in our pipeline, and reduction of debt. We intend to reduce debt levels by $15-$18 billion by the end of 2021, with further deleveraging through 2023.

7.  What do you view as the largest risks associated with the transaction?

Any transaction of this magnitude involves a series of regulatory approvals and integration complexities. Both companies have organizations that are highly experienced at integrating businesses and we expect that process to be efficient and thorough.

3. AbbVie Background to and Reasons for the Acquisition

As a part of its on-going review of AbbVie's long-term strategy, the AbbVie Board regularly considers strategic opportunities that might be available to enhance shareholder value, including additional investments in new growth opportunities and potential acquisitions.

Beginning in late April of 2019, senior management of AbbVie and Allergan had a series of discussions regarding the possibility of an acquisition by AbbVie of Allergan and the possible terms of such a transaction. In connection with a possible transaction, AbbVie retained Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC in late May of 2019 as its financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP and McCann FitzGerald as its legal advisors.

During the period preceding the execution of definitive documentation for the Acquisition on June 25, 2019, the parties discussed and negotiated the transaction terms, conducted due diligence with respect to each other's businesses and consulted with the Panel, and AbbVie arranged financing for the transaction. On June 24, 2019, the AbbVie Board met, together with AbbVie's senior management and financial and legal advisors, to consider proposed terms and drafts of definitive documentation for a proposed acquisition by AbbVie of Allergan. At this meeting, AbbVie's Board unanimously determined that the Transaction Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Acquisition, were in the best interests of AbbVie and its stockholders, and thereby authorized and approved the Acquisition.

AbbVie's Board believes that the Acquisition will create a more diversified pharmaceutical company, positioned for success in current and future health care markets. Following the Acquisition, AbbVie will have market leading positions in multiple therapeutic categories, a more diversified product portfolio, and strong cash flow.

In reaching its decision to authorize and approve the Acquisition, the AbbVie Board consulted with and received advice and reports from AbbVie's senior management and its financial and legal advisors, and drew on its knowledge of AbbVie's business, assets, financial position, operating results, historical and current trading prices of its securities, and the opportunities and challenges in its businesses and the industries in which it operates, as well as information relating to Allergan and the potential opportunities available to and future business prospects of the combined company.

Further detail in respect of the background and reasons for the Acquisition will be included in the Proxy Statement.

4. Allergan Background to and Reasons for Recommending the Acquisition

The Allergan Directors have on an ongoing basis considered the long-term strategy of Allergan and strategic opportunities that might be available to enhance shareholder value, including additional investments in new growth opportunities, potential acquisitions and the possible sale of Allergan as well as a potential spin off of certain of Allergan's businesses.

Beginning in late April of 2019, senior management of AbbVie and Allergan had a series of discussions regarding the possibility of an acquisition by AbbVie of Allergan and the possible terms of such a transaction. In connection with a possible transaction, Allergan retained J.P. Morgan Securities LLC as its financial advisor and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Arthur Cox as its legal advisors. 

During the period preceding the execution of definitive documentation for the Acquisition on June 25, 2019, the parties discussed and negotiated the transaction terms, conducted due diligence with respect to each other's businesses and consulted with the Panel.  Also during this period, the Independent Allergan Directors met, together with Allergan's senior management and its financial and legal advisors, on various occasions to consider the merits of a potential transaction with AbbVie and the status of the discussions and negotiations between the parties.

On June 23, 2019, the Independent Allergan Directors met, together with Allergan's senior management and financial and legal advisors, to consider proposed terms and drafts of definitive documentation for a proposed acquisition by AbbVie of Allergan. At this meeting, the Independent Allergan Directors unanimously determined that the Transaction Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Scheme, were advisable for, fair to and in the best interests of Allergan and the Allergan Shareholders, and thereby approved the Acquisition and determined that the terms of the Scheme were fair and reasonable.

In reaching its decision to approve the Acquisition, the Independent Allergan Directors consulted with and received advice and reports from Allergan's senior management and its financial and legal advisors, and drew on its knowledge of Allergan's business, assets, financial position, operating results, historical and current trading prices of its securities, and the opportunities and challenges in its businesses and the industries in which it operates, as well as information relating to AbbVie and the potential opportunities available to and future business prospects of the combined company. After giving consideration to these and a variety of other factors and risks, the Independent Allergan Directors unanimously determined to recommend that Allergan Shareholders vote in favor of the Acquisition.

Further detail in respect of the background and reasons for the Acquisition will be included in the Proxy Statement.

5. Allergan Recommendation

The Independent Allergan Directors, who have been so advised by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC as to the financial terms of the Acquisition, consider the terms of the Acquisition to be fair and reasonable. In providing its advice, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC has taken into account the commercial assessments of the Independent Allergan Directors. J.P. Morgan Securities LLC is acting as independent financial adviser to the Independent Allergan Directors in relation to the Acquisition for the purposes of Rule 3 of the Takeover Rules.

Accordingly, the Independent Allergan Directors unanimously recommend to Allergan Shareholders to vote in favor of the Acquisition and the Scheme, as the Independent Allergan Directors who are Allergan Shareholders intend to do in respect of their own beneficial holdings of, in the aggregate, 63,690 Allergan Shares.

Thomas C. Freyman is not participating in the Independent Allergan Directors' recommendation of the Acquisition and related matters as Mr. Freyman is regarded under Rule 3 of the Irish Takeover Rules as having a conflict of interest due to Mr. Freyman's shareholding in AbbVie.

6. The Acquisition and the Scheme

The Acquisition will be effected by means of a "scheme of arrangement" in accordance with Chapter 1 of Part 9 of the Act pursuant to which Acquirer Sub, a wholly owned subsidiary of AbbVie, will acquire all of the outstanding Allergan Shares in exchange for 0.8660 AbbVie Shares and $120.30 in cash (and Cash Consideration in lieu of Fractional Entitlements) per Allergan Share, subject to adjustment in accordance with the Exchange Ratio Modification Number. The Acquisition will be subject to the Conditions set out in Appendix III to this announcement and to be set forth in the Scheme described in the Scheme Document which will be delivered to Allergan Shareholders.

To become effective, the Scheme will require, among other things, the approval of the Scheme by a majority in number of members of each class of Allergan Shareholders (including as may be directed by the High Court pursuant to Section 450(5) of the Act) present and voting either in person or by proxy at the Court Meeting (or at any adjournment or postponement of such meeting) representing, at the relevant voting record time, at least 75% in value of the Allergan Shares of that class held by such Allergan Shareholders and (ii) the Required EGM Resolutions being duly passed by the requisite majorities of Allergan Shareholders at the EGM (or any adjournment or postponement thereof). Following the Allergan Shareholder Approval being obtained and the satisfaction or (where applicable) waiver of the other conditions to the consummation of the Scheme, the sanction of the Irish High Court is also required. The Acquisition, which is unanimously recommended by the AbbVie Board and the Independent Allergan Directors, is also subject to receipt of certain regulatory approvals and certain other conditions, as more particularly set out in Appendix III of this announcement.

Assuming the necessary approvals from the Allergan Shareholders have been obtained and all other conditions have been satisfied or waived (where applicable), the Scheme will become effective upon delivery to the Irish Registrar of Companies of a copy of the Court Order of the Irish High Court sanctioning the Scheme together with the minute required by section 86 of the Act confirming a capital reduction to take place in connection with the Acquisition and registration of the Court Order and minute by the Irish Registrar of Companies. Upon the Scheme becoming effective, the Scheme will be binding on all Allergan Shareholders, irrespective of whether or not they attended or voted at the Court Meeting or the EGM.

The Acquisition will be conditional upon the Scheme becoming effective. The Conditions to the Acquisition and the Scheme are set out in full in Appendix III to this announcement. The implementation of the Scheme is conditional, amongst other things, upon:

(a) the approval by the Allergan Shareholders and the sanction by the Irish High Court of the Scheme;

(b) the approval for listing on NYSE (subject only to certain standard conditions) of all of the AbbVie Shares to be issued in the Acquisition;

(c) all applicable waiting periods under the HSR Act in connection with the Acquisition having expired or having been terminated, and, to the extent applicable, any agreement between Allergan and AbbVie, on the one hand, and the Federal Trade Commission or the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice, on the other hand, not to consummate the Scheme or the Acquisition having expired or been earlier terminated;

(d) to the extent (i) the Acquisition constitutes a concentration within the scope of the EC Merger Regulation or otherwise is a concentration that is subject to the EC Merger Regulation, the European Commission having decided to allow the closing of the Acquisition, and (ii) that all or part of the Acquisition is referred by the European Commission to the relevant authority of one or more member countries of the European Economic Area, such relevant authority(ies) (in the case of a partial referral in conjunction with a final decision of the European Commission) having issued a final decision or decisions which satisfies (or together satisfy) the prior clause (i) (that clause being interpreted mutatis mutandis);

(e) all required Clearances of any Governmental Entity having been obtained and remaining in full force and effect and all applicable waiting periods having expired, lapsed or been terminated (as appropriate), in each case in connection with the Acquisition, under the Antitrust Laws of each Required Antitrust Jurisdiction, and (a) no order, writ, decree, judgment, or injunction (whether temporary or permanent) shall have been issued, promulgated, made, rendered or entered into by any court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, and (b) no Law other than an order, writ, decree, judgement or injunction described in clause (a) (whether or not final or appealable) (excluding, for the purpose of this clause (b), any Antitrust Law of any jurisdiction that is not a Required Antitrust Jurisdiction) shall have been enacted, issued, promulgated, enforced or entered and continue in effect and, in each case of clauses (a) and (b), restrain, enjoin, make illegal or otherwise prohibit the consummation of the Acquisition;

(f) the Transaction Agreement not having been terminated in accordance with its terms;

(g) the absence of a material adverse effect with respect to each party;

(h) the accuracy of each of the parties' representations and warranties, except generally as would not have a material adverse effect on such party; and

(i) the performance by each party, in all material respects, with all of its covenants and agreements under the Transaction Agreement.

The Scheme Document, containing further information relating to the implementation of the Acquisition, the full terms and Conditions of the Scheme, and the notices of the Court Meeting, to be convened by resolution of the Allergan Board or direction of the Irish High Court, and the separate EGM required to approve the Scheme and related resolutions will be mailed as promptly as reasonably practicable after securing approval of the High Court to despatch such documents to Allergan Shareholders and, for information only, to holders of Allergan Options and Allergan Share Awards.

The Proxy Statement will contain important information about the Acquisition (including the Scheme), the Transaction Agreement, the Court Meeting and the EGM.

7. Merger Benefit Statement

AbbVie anticipates that the Acquisition will provide annual pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions of at least $2 billion in year three while leaving investments in key growth franchises untouched. The synergies and other cost reductions will be a result of optimizing the research and early stage portfolio, and reducing overlapping R&D resources (~50%), driving efficiencies in SG&A, including sales and marketing and central support function costs (~40%), and eliminating redundancies in manufacturing and supply chain, and leveraging procurement spend (~10%). The synergies estimate excludes any potential revenue synergies.

Subject to the Scheme becoming effective, Allergan Shareholders will be able to share in the synergies and other cost reductions resulting from the Acquisition by means of the AbbVie Shares they will receive as part of the Scheme Consideration.

There are various material assumptions underlying the synergies and other cost reductions estimates which may result in the synergies and other cost reductions being materially greater or less than estimated. The estimate of synergies and other cost reductions should therefore be read in conjunction with the key assumptions underlying the estimates set out in Appendix I of this announcement.

The synergies and other cost reductions statements should not be construed as a profit forecast or interpreted to mean that AbbVie's profits or earnings in the first full year following the Acquisition, or in any subsequent period, would necessarily match or be greater than or be less than those of AbbVie and/or Allergan for the relevant preceding financial period or any other period.

The estimate of synergies set out in this announcement has been reported on for the purposes of Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Irish Takeover Rules by (i) PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and (ii) Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc. Copies of their respective reports are included in Appendix IV and Appendix V to this announcement. Each of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc has given and not withdrawn its consent to the issue of this announcement with the inclusion of its report.

Pursuant to the terms of the Transaction Agreement, Allergan's outstanding equity awards will be treated as follows: (i) each unexercised Allergan Option will be substituted with an Allergan Replacement Option, with the exercise price per AbbVie Share and the number of AbbVie Shares underlying the Allergan Replacement Option adjusted to reflect the conversion from Allergan Shares into AbbVie Shares, and (ii) each other Allergan Share Award, including Allergan RSU Awards, Allergan PSUs and Allergan Restricted Stock Awards, will be substituted with an Allergan Replacement Share Award, with the number of AbbVie Shares underlying each such Allergan Replacement Share Award adjusted to reflect the conversion from Allergan Shares into AbbVie Shares.  AbbVie restricted stock unit awards will be granted in substitution for Allergan PSUs, and the number of AbbVie Shares underlying each Allergan PSU with a performance period that remains subject to performance vesting conditions as of the date of the Transaction Agreement  (i.e., any Allergan PSU for which the level of performance has not been determined) will equal 130% of the target number of Allergan Shares subject to such Allergan PSU.  Each Allergan Replacement Option and Allergan Replacement Share Award will continue to have, and be subject to, the same terms and conditions (including, for each Allergan PSU, the time vesting conditions provided in the applicable award agreement, but excluding any performance-based vesting conditions) that applied to the corresponding Allergan Option or Allergan Share Award, as applicable (except for terms rendered inoperative by reason of the Acquisition or for immaterial administrative or ministerial changes that are not adverse to any holder other than in any de minimis respect).

13. Financing

AbbVie has secured fully underwritten financing commitments from Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. and MUFG Bank, Ltd., for an aggregate amount of US$38.0 billion, to finance together with AbbVie's own cash resources, the cash portion of the Acquisition.

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, acting through its affiliate Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc, financial advisor to AbbVie, is satisfied that sufficient resources are available to satisfy in full the Cash Consideration payable to Allergan Shareholders under the terms of the Acquisition.

14. Expenses Reimbursement Agreement

Allergan has entered into the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement, dated June 25, 2019 with AbbVie, the terms of which have been approved by the Panel. Under the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement, Allergan has agreed to pay to AbbVie in certain circumstances an amount equal to all documented, specific, quantifiable third party costs and expenses incurred, directly or indirectly, by AbbVie and/or its subsidiaries, or on their behalf, for the purposes of, in preparation for, or in connection with the Acquisition, including, but not limited to, third party costs and expenses incurred in connection with exploratory work carried out in contemplation of and in connection with the Acquisition, legal, financial and commercial due diligence, the arrangement of financing and the engagement of third party representatives to assist in the process. The liability of Allergan to pay these amounts shall arise only after the date of this announcement and is limited to a maximum amount equal to 1% of the aggregate value of the total Scheme Consideration (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any interest in such share capital of Allergan held by AbbVie or any Concert Parties of AbbVie). The circumstances in which such payment will be made are if:

(b) all of the following occur:

(i) the Transaction Agreement is terminated (x) by AbbVie if Allergan breached or failed to perform in any material respect any of its covenants or other agreements contained in the Transaction Agreement, which breach or failure to perform (1) would have resulted in a failure of the Condition set forth in paragraph 4(iii) of Appendix III and (2) was not reasonably capable of being cured by the End Date or, if curable, is not cured by the earlier of (a) the End Date and (b) 30 days following written notice by AbbVie thereof or (y) by AbbVie or Allergan, if the Court Meeting or the EGM was completed and the Court Meeting Resolution or the Required EGM Resolutions, as applicable, were not approved by the requisite majorities; and

(ii) prior to the Court Meeting, an Allergan Alternative Proposal was publicly disclosed or announced (or, in the case of a termination described in paragraph (b)(i)(x) above, was made publicly or privately to the Allergan Board), or any person shall have publicly announced an intention (whether or not conditional) to make an Allergan Alternative Proposal (it being understood that, for purposes of this paragraph (b)(ii) and paragraph (b)(iii) below, references to "twenty percent (20%)" in the definition of Allergan Alternative Proposal shall be deemed to refer to "fifty percent (50)%"); and

(iii) (x) an Allergan Alternative Proposal is consummated within twelve months after such termination, or (y) a definitive agreement providing for an Allergan Alternative Proposal is entered into within twelve months after such termination and which is subsequently consummated, in the case of each of clauses (x) and (y), regardless of whether such Allergan Alternative Proposal is the same Allergan Alternative Proposal referred to in paragraph (b)(ii) above.

Each of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and the Independent Allergan Directors have confirmed in writing to the Panel that, in the opinion of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and the Independent Allergan Directors (respectively), in the context of the note to Rule 21.2 of the Takeover Rules and the Acquisition, the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement is in the best interests of the Allergan Shareholders. The Panel has consented to Allergan entering into the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement.

15. Transaction Agreement

AbbVie, Allergan and Acquirer Sub have entered into the Transaction Agreement dated June 25, 2019 which contains certain assurances, obligations and commitments in relation to the implementation of the Scheme, including provisions in relation to the conduct of Allergan's business between the date of this announcement and the Effective Date and other matters relating to the Acquisition.

These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the possibility that a possible acquisition will not be pursued, failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals or required financing or to satisfy any of the other conditions to the possible acquisition, adverse effects on the market price of AbbVie's shares of common stock or Allergan's ordinary shares and on AbbVie's or Allergan's operating results because of a failure to complete the possible acquisition, failure to realize the expected benefits of the possible acquisition, failure to promptly and effectively integrate Allergan's businesses, negative effects relating to the announcement of the possible acquisition or any further announcements relating to the possible acquisition or the consummation of the possible acquisition on the market price of AbbVie's shares of common stock or Allergan's ordinary shares, significant transaction costs and/or unknown or inestimable liabilities, potential litigation associated with the possible acquisition, general economic and business conditions that affect the combined companies following the consummation of the possible acquisition, changes in global, political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory forces, future exchange and interest rates, changes in tax laws, regulations, rates and policies, future business acquisitions or disposals and competitive developments. These forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions and assessments made in light of AbbVie's or, as the case may be, Allergan's experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, business strategies, operating environment, future developments and other factors it believes appropriate. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. The factors described in the context of such forward-looking statements in this announcement could cause Allergan's plans with respect to AbbVie, Allergan's or AbbVie's actual results, performance or achievements, industry results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. Although it is believed that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct and persons reading this announcement are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as at the date of this announcement. Additional information about economic, competitive, governmental, technological and other factors that may affect AbbVie is set forth in Item 1A, "Risk Factors," in AbbVie's 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K, which has been filed with the SEC, the contents of which are not incorporated by reference into, nor do they form part of, this announcement.

Any forward-looking statements in this announcement are based upon information available to AbbVie, Allergan and/or their respective boards of directors, as the case may be, as of the date of this announcement and, while believed to be true when made, may ultimately prove to be incorrect. Subject to any obligations under applicable Law, none of AbbVie, Allergan or any member of their respective boards of directors undertakes any obligation to update any forward-looking statement whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, or to conform any forward-looking statement to actual results, future events, or to changes in expectations.

Dealing Disclosure Requirements

Under the provisions of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Panel Act, 1997, Takeover Rules 2013 (the "Irish Takeover Rules"), if any person is, or becomes, 'interested' (directly or indirectly) in, 1% or more of any class of 'relevant securities' of Allergan or AbbVie, all 'dealings' in any 'relevant securities' of Allergan or AbbVie (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such 'relevant securities') must be publicly disclosed by not later than 3:30 pm (New York time) on the 'business' day following the date of the relevant transaction. This requirement will continue until the date on which the Scheme becomes effective or on which the 'offer period' otherwise ends. If two or more persons co-operate on the basis of any agreement, either express or tacit, either oral or written, to acquire an 'interest' in 'relevant securities' of Allergan or AbbVie, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Rules.

Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Irish Takeover Rules, all 'dealings' in 'relevant securities' of Allergan by AbbVie or 'relevant securities' of AbbVie by Allergan, or by any party acting in concert with either of them, must also be disclosed by no later than 12 noon (New York time) on the 'business' day following the date of the relevant transaction.

A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose 'relevant securities' 'dealings' should be disclosed, can be found on the Irish Takeover Panel's website at www.irishtakeoverpanel.ie.

'Interests in securities' arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an 'interest' by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.

Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Irish Takeover Rules, which can also be found on the Irish Takeover Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a dealing under Rule 8, please consult the Irish Takeover Panel's website at www.irishtakeoverpanel.ie or contact the Irish Takeover Panel on telephone number +353 1 678 9020 or fax number +353 1 678 9289.

5. The bases of belief (including sources of information and assumptions made) that support the expected synergies and other cost reductions are set out in the following paragraphs. The estimate of synergies has been reported on in accordance with Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Irish Takeover Rules.

6. The expected sources of the estimated pre-tax synergies are:

(a) optimizing the research and early stage portfolio, and reducing overlapping R&D resources;

(b) driving efficiencies in SG&A including sales and marketing, and central support function costs; and

(c) eliminating redundancies in manufacturing and supply chain, and leveraging procurement spend.

7. When evaluating potential annual pre-tax cost synergies and other cost reductions the AbbVie Board has assumed the following:

(a) The cost bases for the quantification exercise are:

(i) in respect of AbbVie, the four months actual cost base to 30 April 2019 plus eight months of the latest forecast cost base to 31 December 2019; and

(ii) in respect of Allergan, the three months actual cost base to 31 March 2019 plus nine months of the latest forecast cost base to 31 December 2019;

(b) that the Scheme will become effective and AbbVie, through Acquirer Sub, will acquire 100% of the issued and to be issued share capital of Allergan on completion of the Acquisition;

(c) that there will be no material unanticipated impact on the combined company arising from any decisions made by competition authorities;

(d) that there will be no material change to the market dynamics affecting AbbVie and/or Allergan following completion of the Acquisition; and

(e) that there will be no material change to exchange rates following completion of the Acquisition.

8. In establishing the estimate of pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions the AbbVie Board has assumed that Allergan's operations, processes and procedures are comparable to those of AbbVie's related operations, except where publicly available information clearly indicates otherwise or the due diligence materials provided by Allergan to AbbVie indicated otherwise.

9. AbbVie's management, aided by its previous integration experience and through an understanding of Allergan's operations and cost structure based on their own market intelligence and experience, and due diligence materials provided by Allergan, has determined the source and scale of potential pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions. The pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions are incremental to AbbVie's and, to the best of AbbVie's knowledge, Allergan's existing plans.

10. In addition to information from AbbVie's and Allergan's respective management teams, the sources of information that AbbVie has used to arrive at the estimate of potential pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions include:

(a) the Allergan annual report and accounts;

(b) Allergan presentations to analysts;

(c) Allergan's website;

(d) analysts' research;

(e) other public information;

(f) AbbVie's knowledge of the industry and of Allergan; and

(g) AbbVie's experience of synergies from previous transactions.

11. There remains an inherent risk in the synergy forward-looking statements. No synergy statement in this announcement, including any statement that the Acquisition will be accretive, should be construed as a profit forecast or interpreted to mean that AbbVie's earnings in the first full year following the Scheme, or in any subsequent period, would necessarily match or be greater than or be less than those of AbbVie and/or Allergan for the relevant preceding financial period or any other period.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen

Merger Benefit Statement by AbbVie Inc. (the "Company")

We report on the "Merger Benefit Statement" by the Directors included in Section 7 of the Rule 2.5 Announcement dated 25 June 2019 (the "Announcement") to the effect that:

"AbbVie anticipates that the Acquisition will provide annual pre-tax synergies and other cost reductions of at least $2 billion in year three while leaving investments in key growth franchises untouched. The synergies and other cost reductions will be a result of optimizing the research and early stage portfolio, and reducing overlapping R&D resources (~50%), driving efficiencies in SG&A, including sales and marketing and central support function costs (~40%), and eliminating redundancies in manufacturing and supply chain, and leveraging procurement spend (~10%). The synergies estimate excludes any potential revenue synergies."

The Merger Benefit Statement has been made in the context of disclosure in Section 7 of the Announcement setting out the bases of belief of the Directors supporting the Merger Benefit Statement and their analysis and explanation of the underlying constituent elements.

This report is required by Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Irish Takeover Panel Act 1997, Takeover Rules, 2013 (the "Rules") and is given for the purpose of complying with that rule and for no other purpose.

Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of the Directors to make the Merger Benefit Statement in accordance with the Code.

It is our responsibility and that of the Financial Adviser to form our respective opinions as required by Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Rules, as to whether the Merger Benefit Statement has been made with due and careful consideration.

Save for any responsibility which we may have to those persons to whom this report is expressly addressed and for any responsibility arising under Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Rules to any person as and to the extent therein provided, to the fullest extent permitted by law we do not assume any responsibility and will not accept any liability to any other person for any loss suffered by any such other person as a result of, arising out of, or in connection with this report or our statement, required by and given solely for the purposes of complying with Rule 19.3(b)(ii) of the Rules, consenting to its inclusion in the Announcement.

Basis of Opinion

We conducted our work in accordance with the Standards for Investment Reporting issued by the Auditing Practices Board in the United Kingdom and published by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland. We have discussed the Merger Benefit Statement together with the relevant bases of belief (including sources of information and assumptions) with the Directors and with the Financial Adviser. Our work did not involve any independent examination of any of the financial or other information underlying the Merger Benefit Statement.

Since the Merger Benefit Statement and the assumptions on which it is based relate to the future and may therefore be affected by unforeseen events, we can express no opinion as to whether the actual Benefit achieved will correspond to those anticipated in the Merger Benefit Statement and the differences may be material.

Our work has not been carried out in accordance with auditing or other standards and practices generally accepted in the United States of America or other jurisdictions and accordingly should not be relied upon as if it had been carried out in accordance with those standards and practices.

Opinion

In our opinion, on the basis of the foregoing, the Directors have made the Merger Benefit Statement, in the form and context in which it is made, with due care and consideration.

Yours sincerely

(s) following the Court Meeting and EGM, assuming the Resolutions are duly passed (including by the requisite majorities required under Section 453 of the Act in the case of the Court Meeting) and all other Conditions are satisfied or, in the sole discretion of the applicable Party, waived (where permissible under the terms of the Rule 2.5 Announcement and/or the Scheme Document) (with the exception of Conditions 2(iii) and 2(iv) and any other Conditions that are by their nature to be satisfied on the Sanction Date, but subject to the satisfaction or waiver (where permissible under the provisions of the Rule 2.5 Announcement and/or the Scheme Document) of such Conditions), take all necessary steps on the part of Allergan to prepare and issue, serve and lodge all such court documents as are required to seek the sanction of the High Court to the Scheme as soon as possible thereafter;

(c) keep Allergan reasonably informed as to the performance of the obligations and responsibilities required of AbbVie and Acquirer Sub pursuant to the Scheme;

(h) as promptly as reasonably practicable, notify Allergan of any other matter of which it becomes aware which would reasonably be expected to materially delay or prevent filing of the Proxy Statement or the Scheme Document with the SEC and the Panel, as applicable, or implementation of the Scheme, as the case may be.

(a) If any of the Parties becomes aware of any information that, pursuant to the Takeover Rules, the Act, the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, should be disclosed in an amendment or supplement to the Scheme Document or the Proxy Statement, then such Party shall promptly inform the other Party thereof and the Parties shall cooperate with each other in submitting or filing such amendment or supplement with the Panel, the SEC and/or the High Court, as applicable, and, if required, in mailing such amendment or supplement to the Allergan Shareholders and, for information only, if required, to the holders of the Allergan Options or Allergan Share Awards.  Each of the Parties agrees to promptly (i) correct any information provided by it for use in the Scheme Document or the Proxy Statement, as applicable, if and to the extent that such information shall have become false or misleading in any material respect and (ii) supplement the information provided by it specifically for use in the Scheme Document or the Proxy Statement, as applicable, to include any information that shall become necessary in order to make the statements in the Scheme Document or the Proxy Statement, as applicable, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  Allergan further agrees to cause the Scheme Document or the Proxy Statement, as applicable, as so corrected or supplemented promptly to be filed with the Panel and the SEC and to be despatched to its stockholders, in each case as and to the extent required by applicable Law.  For purposes of this Section 3.3(a), any information concerning the Allergan Group will be deemed to have been provided by Allergan, and any information concerning the AbbVie Group will be deemed to have been provided by AbbVie and/or Acquirer Sub.

(b) Each Party shall provide the other Party with reasonable prior notice of any proposed material oral communication with the SEC, the Panel or the High Court and, except to the extent prohibited by the SEC, the Panel or the High Court, afford the other Party reasonable opportunity to participate therein, other than with respect to any such communication to the extent related to an Allergan Alternative Proposal or the termination of this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with Article 9.

(c) Except as the Panel may otherwise direct and subject to the Panel's waiving any obligation for AbbVie or Acquirer Sub to make a cash offer or provide a cash alternative under Rule 11 of the Takeover Rules, and to ensure that Acquirer Sub is the sole member of Allergan at the Effective Time, on such date as the Parties shall agree but in any event prior to the Effective Time, Acquirer Sub agrees to subscribe for, and Allergan agrees to allot and issue to Acquirer Sub, one Allergan Share (the "Excluded Scheme Share"), in consideration for which Acquirer Sub shall pay, or cause to be paid to Allergan, an amount equal to the nominal value of one Allergan Share (the "Subscription Amount"). Completion of the subscription for the Excluded Scheme Share (the "Subscription Completion") shall take place at a location of the Parties' choosing on such date as the Parties shall agree but in any event prior to the Effective Time. At the Subscription Completion: (i) Acquirer Sub shall (A) subscribe for the Excluded Scheme Share, and (B) pay, or cause to be paid, the Subscription Amount to Allergan in cash, and (ii) Allergan shall (A) allot and issue the Excluded Scheme Share to Acquirer Sub (or its nominee) credited as fully paid, (B) procure that all appropriate entries are made in the statutory records of Allergan in respect of the Excluded Scheme Share, and (C) issue and deliver to Acquirer Sub a share certificate in respect of the Excluded Scheme Share.

(a) Each of the Parties will (i) give the other reasonable prior notice of any proposed meeting or material substantive discussion or correspondence between it or its Representatives with the Panel, or any amendment to be proposed to the Scheme in connection therewith, and, except to the extent any such correspondence relates to an Allergan Alternative Proposal or the valid termination of this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with Article 9, afford the other reasonable opportunities to review and make comments and suggestions with respect to the same and consider in good faith such comments and suggestions, and (ii) except to the extent any such meeting, discussion, correspondence or submission relates to an Allergan Alternative Proposal or the valid termination of this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with Article 9, keep the other reasonably informed of all such meetings, discussions or correspondence that it or its Representative(s) have with the Panel and not participate in any meeting or discussion with the Panel concerning this Agreement or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement unless it consults with the other Party in advance, and, unless prohibited by the Panel, gives such other Party the opportunity to attend and provide copies of all written submissions it makes to the Panel and copies (or, where verbal, a verbal or written summary of the substance) of the Panel responses thereto provided always that any correspondence or other information required to be provided under this Section 3.4 may be redacted:

(i) to remove references concerning the valuation of the businesses of Allergan;

(ii) to prevent the exchange of confidential information as required by applicable Law (provided that the redacting Party shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such information to be provided in a manner that would not result in such confidentiality concerns); and

(iii) as necessary to address reasonable privilege concerns (provided that the redacting Party shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such information to be provided in a manner that would not result in such privilege concerns).

(b) Allergan undertakes, if so reasonably requested by AbbVie to, as promptly as practicable, provide its written consent to AbbVie and to the Panel in respect of any application made by AbbVie to the Panel:

(i) to redact any commercially sensitive or confidential information specific to AbbVie's financing arrangements for the Acquisition ("AbbVie Financing Information") from any documents that AbbVie is required to display pursuant to Rule 26(b)(xi) of the Takeover Rules;

(ii) for a derogation from the requirement under the Takeover Rules to disclose AbbVie Financing Information in the Scheme Document, any supplemental document or other document sent to Allergan Shareholders or the holders of the Allergan Options or Allergan Share Awards pursuant to the Takeover Rules;

(iii) for a derogation from Rule 16.1 and/or 20.1 of the Takeover Rules to permit AbbVie to implement, and to pay fees to lenders in connection with, its Financing and syndication arrangements with respect to its Financing, and to provide information to lenders and prospective lenders on such terms as the Panel may permit; and

(iv) for a derogation from the disclosure requirements of Rule 24.3 of the Takeover Rules, seeking consent to the aggregation of dealings for purposes of disclosure in the Scheme Document and seeking consent to the aggregation on a bi-weekly basis of changes in information announced pursuant to Rule 2.10 of the Takeover Rules.

(c) AbbVie undertakes, if so requested by Allergan to, as promptly as practicable, provide its written consent to Allergan and to the Panel in respect of any application made by Allergan to the Panel to permit entering into and effecting the retention, bonus and/or benefit arrangements contemplated by Section 5.1(b)(xii) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule.

(d) AbbVie and Allergan undertake, if so requested by the other Party to, as promptly as reasonably practicable, issue its written consent to the other Party and to the Panel in respect of any application reasonably requesting any derogation, permission or consent from the Panel in connection with the Takeover Rules.

(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.4, neither Allergan nor AbbVie shall be required to take any action pursuant to the foregoing provisions (a) through (d) if such action is prohibited by the Panel (unless the Panel decision is successfully appealed by either Allergan or AbbVie).

(f) Nothing in this Agreement shall in any way limit the Parties' obligations under the Takeover Rules.

Section 3.5 No Scheme Amendment by Allergan.  Except as required by applicable Law, the High Court and/or the Panel, Allergan shall not take any of the following actions after despatch of the Scheme Document, in each case, without the prior written consent of AbbVie:

(a) amend the Scheme;

(b) adjourn or postpone (or propose an adjournment or postponement of) the Court Meeting or the EGM; provided, however, that Allergan may, without the consent of,   but after consultation with, AbbVie, adjourn or postpone (or propose to adjourn or postpone) the Court Meeting or EGM if (i) in the case of adjournment, such adjournment was requested by the Allergan Shareholders (but only to the extent the proposal for such adjournment was not proposed by Allergan or any of its Affiliates or their respective Representatives), (ii) reasonably necessary to ensure that any required supplement or amendment to the Scheme Document or Proxy Statement is provided to the Allergan Shareholders or to permit dissemination of information which is material to the Allergan Shareholders voting at the Court Meeting or the EGM (but only for so long as the Allergan Board determines in good faith, after having consulted with outside counsel, as is reasonably necessary or advisable to give the Allergan Shareholders sufficient time to evaluate any such disclosure or information), or (iii) as of the time the Court Meeting or EGM is scheduled (as set forth in the Scheme Document or Proxy Statement), there are insufficient Allergan Shares represented (either in person or by proxy) (A) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business of the Court Meeting or the EGM (but only until a meeting can be held at which there are a sufficient number of Allergan Shares represented to constitute a quorum) or (B) voting for the approval of the Court Resolutions or the EGM Resolutions, as applicable (but only until a meeting can be held at which there are a sufficient number of votes of Allergan Shareholders to approve the Court Meeting Resolutions or the EGM Resolutions, as applicable); provided, further, that, notwithstanding the foregoing, other than any adjournments or postponements required by applicable Law, including adjournments or postponements to the extent reasonably necessary or advisable to ensure that any required supplement or amendment to the Proxy Statement is provided or made available to Allergan Shareholders or to permit dissemination of information which is material to shareholders voting at the Court Meeting and EGM and to give the Allergan Shareholders sufficient time to evaluate any such supplement or amendment or other information, no such adjournment or postponement pursuant to clause (i) or (iii) shall, without the prior written consent of AbbVie (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), be for a period exceeding 15 Business Days and Allergan may not adjourn or postpone the Court Meeting or the EGM pursuant to clause (i) or (iii) more than three times; or

(c) amend the Resolutions (in each case, in the form set out in the Scheme Document) after despatch of the Scheme Document without the consent of AbbVie (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).

Section 3.6 Switching to a Takeover Offer.

(a) Subject to the terms of this Section 3.6, in the event that AbbVie reasonably determines that a competitive situation (as that term is defined in the Takeover Rules) exists or, based on facts known at the time, may reasonably be expected to arise in connection with the Acquisition, AbbVie may elect (subject to receiving the Panel's consent, if required) to implement the Acquisition by way of the Takeover Offer (rather than the Scheme), whether or not the Scheme Document has been posted.

(b) If AbbVie elects to implement the Acquisition by way of the Takeover Offer, Allergan undertakes to provide AbbVie and its Representatives as promptly as reasonably practicable with all such information about the Allergan Group (including directors and their connected persons) as may reasonably be required for inclusion in the Takeover Offer Document (and any prospectus in connection with the Share Consideration) and to provide all such other assistance as may reasonably be required by the Takeover Rules in connection with the preparation of the Takeover Offer Document, including reasonable access to, and ensuring the provision of reasonable assistance by, its management and Representatives.

(c) If AbbVie elects to implement the Acquisition by way of a Takeover Offer, Allergan agrees:

(i) that the Takeover Offer Document will contain provisions consistent with the terms and conditions set out in the Rule 2.5 Announcement, the relevant Conditions and such other further terms and conditions as agreed (including any modification thereto) between AbbVie and the Panel; provided, however, that the terms and conditions of the Takeover Offer shall be at least as favorable to the Allergan Shareholders and the holders of Allergan Options and Allergan Share Awards as those which would apply in relation to the Scheme (except for the 80% acceptance condition contemplated by paragraph 9 of Appendix III to the Rule 2.5 Announcement);

(ii) to reasonably co-operate and consult with AbbVie in the preparation of the Takeover Offer Document or any other document or filing (including any necessary prospectus in respect of the Share Consideration) which is required for the purposes of implementing the Acquisition; and

(iii) that, subject to the obligations of the Allergan Board under the Takeover Rules, and unless the Allergan Board has made an Allergan Change of Recommendation pursuant to and in accordance with Section 5.3, the Takeover Offer shall incorporate a recommendation to the Allergan Shareholders from the Allergan Board to accept the Takeover Offer and such recommendation shall not subsequently be withdrawn, adversely modified or qualified except as contemplated by Section 5.3.

(d) If AbbVie elects to implement the Acquisition by way of the Takeover Offer in accordance with Section 3.6(a), the Parties mutually agree:

(i) to prepare and file with, or submit to, the SEC, the Panel and the High Court, all documents, amendments and supplements required to be filed therewith or submitted thereto pursuant to the Takeover Rules, the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, or otherwise by applicable Law in connection with the Takeover Offer and to make any applications or initiate any appearances as may be required by or desirable to the High Court for the purpose of discontinuing, cancelling or terminating the High Court proceedings initiated in connection with the Scheme and, unless the Allergan Board has made an Allergan Change of Recommendation, each Party shall have reasonable opportunities to review and make comments on all such documents, amendments and supplements and, following good faith consideration of such comments by the other Party and approval of such documents, amendments and supplements by the other Party, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, file or submit, as the case may be, such documents, amendments and supplements with or to the SEC, the Panel and the High Court (as applicable);

(ii) to provide the other Party with any comments received from the SEC, the Panel or the High Court on any documents filed by it with the SEC, the Panel or the High Court promptly after receipt thereof, other than with respect to any such documents to the extent related to an Allergan Alternative Proposal; and

(iii) to provide the other Party with reasonable prior notice of any proposed material oral communication with the SEC, the Panel or the High Court and, except to the extent prohibited by the SEC, the Panel or the High Court, afford the other Party reasonable opportunity to participate therein, other than with respect to any such communication to the extent related to an Allergan Alternative Proposal.

(e) If the Takeover Offer is consummated, AbbVie shall cause Acquirer Sub (or their respective designees) to effect as promptly as reasonably practicable, following it becoming entitled under the Act to do so, a compulsory acquisition of any Allergan Shares under section 457 of the Act not acquired in the Takeover Offer for the same consideration per share as provided for in the Takeover Offer.

(f) For clarity and except as may be required by the Takeover Rules (and without limiting any other provision of this Agreement), nothing in this Section 3.6 shall require Allergan to provide AbbVie with any information with respect to, or to otherwise take or fail to take any action in connection with Allergan's consideration of or response to, any actual or potential Allergan Alternative Proposal.

ARTICLE 4
EQUITY AWARDS

Section 4.1 Allergan Options.  As of immediately prior to the Effective Time, by virtue of the occurrence of the Effective Time and without any action on the part of the holder thereof, each Allergan Option that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be substituted with an option, granted under the AbbVie Share Plan (an "Allergan Replacement Option"), to acquire (a) that number of whole AbbVie Shares (rounded down to the nearest whole share) equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the number of Allergan Shares subject to such Allergan Option immediately prior to the Effective Time by (ii) the Equity Award Conversion Ratio, (b) at an exercise price per AbbVie Share (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (i) the exercise price per Allergan Share of such Allergan Option by (ii) the Equity Award Conversion Ratio.  Except as otherwise provided in this Section 4.1, each such Allergan Replacement Option granted under the AbbVie Share Plan pursuant to this Section 4.1 shall continue to have, and shall be subject to, the same terms and conditions that applied to the corresponding Allergan Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, except for terms rendered inoperative by reason of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or for such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as in the reasonable and good faith determination of AbbVie are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Allergan Replacement Options and are not adverse (other than in any de minimis respect) to any holders of Allergan Options.

Section 4.2 Allergan Share Awards.

(a) As of immediately prior to the Effective Time, by virtue of the occurrence of the Effective Time and without any action on the part of the holder thereof, each Allergan Share Award that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by virtue of the occurrence of the Effective Time and without any action on the part of the holders thereof, be substituted with an award, granted under the AbbVie Share Plan (an "Allergan Replacement Share Award"), with respect to a number of whole AbbVie Shares (rounded up to the nearest whole share) equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the applicable number of Allergan Shares subject to such Allergan Share Award (including any corresponding dividend equivalent units) immediately prior to the Effective Time by (ii) the Equity Award Conversion Ratio.  Each Allergan PSU Award shall be converted into an AbbVie restricted stock unit award, and for any Allergan PSU Award with a performance period that remains subject to performance vesting conditions as of the date hereof (i.e., any Allergan PSU Award for which the level of performance vesting has not yet been determined), the number of Allergan Shares underlying such Allergan PSU Award shall be equal to 130% of the target number of Allergan Shares subject to such Allergan PSU Award.  Except as otherwise provided in this Section 4.2(a), each Allergan Replacement Share Award granted under the AbbVie Share Plan pursuant to this Section 4.2(a) shall continue to have, and shall be subject to, the same terms and conditions (including, for any Allergan PSU Award, the time vesting conditions provided in the applicable award agreement, but excluding any performance-based vesting conditions) that applied to the corresponding Allergan Share Award immediately prior to the Effective Time, except for terms rendered inoperative by reason of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or for such other immaterial administrative or ministerial changes as in the reasonable and good faith determination of AbbVie are appropriate to effectuate the administration of the Allergan Replacement Share Awards and are not adverse (other than in any de minimis respect) to any holders of Allergan Share Awards.

(b) The actions contemplated by this Section 4.2 shall be taken in accordance with Section 409A and, if applicable, Section 422 of the Code.

Section 4.3 Other Actions in Connection With Substitution of Allergan Options and Allergan Share Awards.

(a) As soon as practicable after the Effective Time, AbbVie shall deliver to the holders of Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards appropriate notices setting forth such holders' rights, and the applicable award agreements evidencing the grants of such Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards.  The Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards will be settled in AbbVie Shares, and AbbVie shall take all corporate action necessary to effectuate the foregoing.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, and for purposes of clarity, it is understood by AbbVie, Allergan and Acquirer Sub that the Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards shall be awarded and issued under the AbbVie Share Plan.  For clarity, the terms and conditions applicable to such Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards shall be no less favorable than the terms and conditions (other than, in the case of the Allergan PSU Awards, as provided above, performance-based vesting conditions) set forth in the Allergan Share Plans and the award agreements pursuant to which the replaced Allergan Options and Allergan Share Awards were originally granted, notwithstanding that the Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards will be issued under the AbbVie Share Plan and corresponding award agreements issued thereunder. For clarity, the Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards shall comply with the requirements of "Qualified Replacement Awards" with respect to any Allergan Share Awards granted under the Allergan 2013 Plan.

(b) AbbVie shall take all corporate action necessary to reserve for issuance a sufficient number of AbbVie Shares for delivery with respect to Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards substituted by it in accordance with Section 4.1, Section 4.2(a) and this Section 4.3.  To the extent necessary, AbbVie shall, no later than the tenth day following the Effective Date, file a registration statement on Form S-8 (or any successor or other appropriate form) with respect to the AbbVie Shares subject to such Allergan Replacement Options and Allergan Replacement Share Awards pursuant to Section 4.1, Section 4.2(a) and this Section 4.3.

Section 4.4 Reasonable Best Efforts.  Each of the Parties shall use its reasonable best efforts to take all actions reasonably necessary to effectuate the transactions contemplated by this Article 4, including having the applicable board or committee administering the plans governing the affected awards, adopt resolutions necessary to effect the foregoing.

Section 4.5 Amendment of Articles.  Allergan shall procure that a special resolution be proposed to the Allergan Shareholders at the EGM proposing that the Allergan Memorandum and Articles of Association be amended so that any Allergan Shares allotted following the EGM will either be subject to the terms of the Scheme or acquired by AbbVie for the same consideration per Allergan Share as shall be payable to Allergan Shareholders under the Scheme (depending upon the timing of such allotment); provided, however, that nothing in such amendment to the Allergan Memorandum and Articles of Association shall prohibit the sale (whether on a stock exchange or otherwise) of any Allergan Shares issued on the exercise of Allergan Options or vesting or settlement of Allergan Share Awards, as applicable, following the EGM but prior to the sanction of the Scheme by the High Court, it being always acknowledged that each and every Allergan Share will be bound by the terms of the Scheme.

(v) enter into any agreement in principle, letter of intent, term sheet, merger agreement, acquisition agreement, option agreement or other agreement providing for or relating to an Allergan Alternative Proposal (other than an Allergan Alternative Proposal NDA).

Nothing contained herein shall prevent the Allergan Board from (x) complying with Rule 14e-2(a) under the Exchange Act with regard to an Allergan Alternative Proposal, so long as any action taken or statement made to so comply is consistent with this Section 5.3(a) or (y) making any required disclosure to the Allergan Shareholders if the Allergan Board determines in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel, that the failure to take such action would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with applicable Law; provided that any Allergan Change of Recommendation involving or relating to an Allergan Alternative Proposal may only be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.3(b), Section 5.3(c), Section 5.3(d) and Section 5.3(e).  For clarity, a "stop, look and listen" disclosure or similar communication of the type contemplated by Rule 14d-9(f) under the Exchange Act shall not constitute an Allergan Change of Recommendation.

Allergan will promptly (and in each case within 72 hours from the date of this Agreement) request from each Person (and such Person's Representatives) that has executed a confidentiality agreement during the last eighteen months in connection with its consideration of making an Allergan Alternative Proposal to return or destroy (as provided in the terms of such confidentiality agreement) all confidential information concerning Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries and shall promptly (and in each case within 72 hours from the date of this Agreement) terminate all physical and electronic data access previously granted to each such Person.

(b) Responding to Allergan Alternative Proposals. Notwithstanding Section 5.3(a), if at any time prior to the receipt of the Allergan Shareholder Approval (the "Allergan Approval Time") (and in no event after the Allergan Approval Time), the Allergan Board receives a written Allergan Alternative Proposal made after the date hereof which has not resulted from a breach in any material respect of this Section 5.3, the Allergan Board, directly or indirectly through its  Representatives, may (i) contact the Third Party that has made such Allergan Alternative Proposal in order to ascertain facts or clarify terms for the sole purpose of the Allergan Board informing itself about such Allergan Alternative Proposal and such Third Party, and (ii) (x) engage in negotiations or discussions with any such Third Party that has made such an unsolicited written Allergan Alternative Proposal, (y) furnish to such Third Party and its Representatives and financing sources nonpublic information relating to Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries pursuant to a confidentiality agreement with terms no less favorable in the aggregate to Allergan than those contained in the Confidentiality Agreement, a copy of which shall be provided, promptly after its execution, to AbbVie for informational purposes (such confidentiality agreement, the "Allergan Alternative Proposal NDA"); provided that all such non-public information (to the extent that such information has not been previously provided or made available to AbbVie) is provided or made available to AbbVie, as the case may be, substantially concurrently with the time it is provided or made available to such Third Party; provided, further, that prior to and as a condition of taking any actions described in this clause (ii), the Allergan Board determines in good faith, after consultation with a financial advisor of nationally recognized reputation and outside legal counsel, that such Allergan Alternative Proposal either constitutes or could reasonably be expected to lead to an Allergan Superior Proposal.

(c) Notice. Allergan shall notify AbbVie promptly (but in any event within 48 hours) if any Allergan Alternative Proposal or any indication, proposal or inquiry by a Third Party that would reasonably be expected to make an Allergan Alternative Proposal, is received by Allergan.  Each such notice shall be provided in writing and shall identify the Third Party making, and, to the extent applicable, the material terms and conditions (including price) of, any such Allergan Alternative Proposal, indication, proposal or inquiry.  Following such initial notice, Allergan shall keep AbbVie reasonably informed, on a reasonably current basis, of any material changes in the status and details of any such Allergan Alternative Proposal, indication, proposal or inquiry and shall promptly (but in no event later than 24 hours after receipt) provide to AbbVie copies of all material correspondence and written materials sent or provided by or to Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries (or any of its or their respective Representatives) that describes any terms or conditions of any Allergan Alternative Proposal. Neither Allergan nor any of its Subsidiaries will enter into any agreement with any Person which prohibits Allergan from providing any information to AbbVie in accordance with, or otherwise complying with, this Section 5.3.

(d) Fiduciary Exception to Allergan Change of Recommendation Provision.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, but subject to Section 5.3(e), prior to the Allergan Approval Time (and in no event after the Allergan Approval Time), the Allergan Board may (A) make an Allergan Change of Recommendation, or (B) terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 9.1(a)(ii)(B) in order to substantially concurrently enter into a definitive agreement providing for an Allergan Superior Proposal if (x) in the case of such an action taken in connection with an Allergan Alternative Proposal, the Allergan Alternative Proposal has not been withdrawn and the Allergan Board determines in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel and a financial advisor of nationally recognized reputation, that such Allergan Alternative Proposal constitutes an Allergan Superior Proposal, or (y) in the case of an Allergan Change of Recommendation contemplated by clause (A) above involving or relating to an Allergan Intervening Event (and not involving any Allergan Alternative Proposal), the Allergan Board determines in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel and a financial advisor of nationally recognized reputation, that the failure to take such action would reasonably be expected to be inconsistent with its directors' fiduciary duties under applicable Law.

(e) Last Look.  The Allergan Board and Allergan, as applicable, shall not take any of the actions contemplated by Section 5.3(d) unless prior to taking such action (i) Allergan has notified AbbVie, in writing at least three Business Days before taking such action, that Allergan intends to take such action, which notice attaches, in the case of an Allergan Change of Recommendation pursuant to Section 5.3(d)(A) in response to an Allergan Superior Proposal or the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.3(d)(B) and Section 9.1(a)(ii)(B), the most current version of each proposed Contract providing for or related to such Allergan Superior Proposal (including any Contract relating to financing or expense reimbursement) and the identity of the Third Party(ies) making the Allergan Superior Proposal or, in the case of an Allergan Intervening Event, a reasonably detailed description of the facts relating to such Allergan Intervening Event, (ii) if requested by AbbVie, during such three Business Day period, Allergan and its Representatives shall have discussed and negotiated in good faith with AbbVie (to the extent that AbbVie desires to so discuss or negotiate) regarding any proposal by AbbVie to amend the terms of this Agreement in response to such Allergan Superior Proposal or other potential Allergan Change of Recommendation and (iii) after such three Business Day period, the Allergan Board determines in good faith, after consultation with a financial advisor of nationally recognized reputation and outside legal counsel and taking into account any proposal by AbbVie to amend the terms of this Agreement, that in the case of any such action in connection with an Allergan Alternative Proposal, such Allergan Alternative Proposal continues to constitute an Allergan Superior Proposal (it being understood and agreed that in the event of any amendment to the financial terms or other material terms of any such Allergan Superior Proposal, a new written notification from Allergan consistent with that described in clause (i) of this Section 5.3(e) shall be required, and a new notice period under clause (i) of this Section 5.3(e) shall commence, during which notice period Allergan shall be required to comply with the requirements of this Section 5.3(e) anew, except that such new notice period shall be for two Business Days (as opposed to three Business Days)).  After delivery of such written notice pursuant to this Section 5.3(e), Allergan shall promptly inform AbbVie of all material developments affecting the material terms of any such Allergan Superior Proposal and shall promptly provide AbbVie with copies of any additional written materials received or sent that are material to such Allergan Superior Proposal.

(a) For a period of not less than six years from the Effective Date, AbbVie shall cause Allergan or any applicable Subsidiary thereof (collectively, the "D&O Indemnifying Parties"), to the fullest extent each such D&O Indemnifying Party is so authorized or permitted by applicable Law, as now or hereafter in effect, to: (i) indemnify and hold harmless each person who is at the date hereof, was previously, or during the period from the date hereof through the date of the Effective Time, serving as a director or officer of Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries, or at the request or for the benefit of Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries as a director, trustee or officer of any other entity or any benefit plan maintained by Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries (collectively, the "D&O Indemnified Parties"), as in effect as of the date of this Agreement, in connection with any D&O Claim and any losses, claims, damages, liabilities, Claim Expenses, judgments, fines, penalties and amounts paid in settlement (including all interest, assessments and other charges paid or payable in connection with or in respect of any thereof) relating to or resulting from such D&O Claim; and (ii) promptly advance to such D&O Indemnified Party any Claim Expenses incurred in defending, serving as a witness with respect to or otherwise participating with respect to any D&O Claim in advance of the final disposition of such D&O Claim, including payment on behalf of or advancement to the D&O Indemnified Party of any Claim Expenses incurred by such D&O Indemnified Party in connection with enforcing any rights with respect to such indemnification and/or advancement, in each case without the requirement of any bond or other security, but subject to the D&O Indemnifying Party's receipt of a written undertaking by or on behalf of such D&O Indemnified Party to repay such Claim Expenses if it is ultimately determined under applicable Law that such D&O Indemnified Party is not entitled to be indemnified.  All rights to indemnification and advancement conferred hereunder shall continue as to a Person who has ceased to be a director or officer of Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries after the date hereof and shall inure to the benefit of such Person's heirs, successors, executors and personal and legal representatives.  As used in this Section 7.3: (x) the term "D&O Claim" means any threatened, asserted, pending or completed Action, whether instituted by any Governmental Entity or any other Person, arising out of or pertaining to acts or omissions occurring at or prior to the Effective Time  that relate to such D&O Indemnified Party's duties or service (A) as a director or officer of Allergan or the applicable Subsidiary thereof at or prior to the Effective Time (including with respect to any acts, facts, events or omissions occurring in connection with the approval of this Agreement, the Scheme, the Acquisition and the consummation of the other transactions contemplated hereby (including the Acquisition), including the consideration and approval thereof and the process undertaken in connection therewith) or (B) as a director, trustee or officer of any other entity or any benefit plan maintained by Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries (for which such D&O Indemnified Party is or was serving at the request or for the benefit of Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries) at or prior to the Effective Time; and (y) the term "Claim Expenses" means reasonable out-of-pocket attorneys' fees and all other reasonable out-of-pocket costs, expenses and obligations (including experts' fees, travel expenses, court costs, retainers, transcript fees, duplicating, printing and binding costs, as well as telecommunications, postage and courier charges) paid or incurred in connection with investigating, defending, being a witness in or participating in (including on appeal), or preparing to investigate, defend, be a witness in or participate in any D&O Claim for which indemnification is authorized pursuant to this Section 7.3(a), including any action relating to a claim for indemnification or advancement brought by a D&O Indemnified Party.

(b) For a period of not less than six years from the Effective Date, AbbVie shall cause the organizational documents of Allergan to contain provisions no less favorable with respect to indemnification, advancement of expenses and limitations on liability of directors and officers than are set forth in the Organizational Documents of Allergan as of the date of this Agreement, which provisions shall not be amended, repealed or otherwise modified for a period of at least six years from the Effective Date in any manner that would adversely affect the rights thereunder of any D&O Indemnified Party, unless any modification or amendment is required by applicable Law (but then only to the extent required by applicable Law).  At Allergan's option and expense, prior to the Effective Time, Allergan may purchase (and pay in full the aggregate premium for) a six-year prepaid "tail" insurance policy (which policy by its express terms shall survive the Acquisition) of at least the same coverage and amounts and containing terms and conditions that are no less favorable to the directors and officers of Allergan or any of its Subsidiaries as Allergan's and its Subsidiaries' existing directors' and officers' insurance policy or policies with a claims period of six years from the Effective Time for D&O Claims arising from facts, acts, events or omissions that occurred on or prior to the Effective Time; provided that the premium for such tail policy shall not exceed three hundred percent (300%) of the annual amount currently paid by Allergan and its Subsidiaries for such insurance (such amount being the "Maximum Premium").  If Allergan fails to obtain such tail policy prior to the Effective Time, AbbVie shall obtain such a tail policy; provided, however, that the premium for such tail policy shall not be required to exceed the Maximum Premium; provided, further, that if such tail policy cannot be obtained or can be obtained only by paying a premium in excess of the Maximum Premium, AbbVie shall only be required to obtain as much coverage as can be obtained by paying a premium equal to the Maximum Premium.  AbbVie and Allergan shall cause any such policy (whether obtained by AbbVie or Allergan) to be maintained in full force and effect, for its full term, and AbbVie shall, following the Effective Time, cause Allergan to honor all its obligations thereunder.

(c) If AbbVie or Allergan or any of their respective successors or assigns (i) consolidates with or merges with or into any other Person and shall not be the continuing or surviving company, partnership or other Person of such consolidation or merger or (ii) liquidates, dissolves or winds-up, or transfers or conveys all or substantially all of its properties and assets to any Person, then, and in each such case, proper provision shall be made so that the successors and assigns of AbbVie or Allergan, as applicable, assume the obligations set forth in this Section 7.3.

(d) The provisions of this Section 7.3 are intended to be for the express benefit of, and shall be enforceable by, each D&O Indemnified Party (who are intended to be third party beneficiaries of this Section 7.3), his or her heirs and his or her personal Representatives, shall be binding on all successors and assigns of AbbVie, and following the Effective Time, Allergan.  The exculpation and indemnification provided for by this Section 7.3 shall not be deemed to be exclusive of any other rights to which a D&O Indemnified Party is entitled, pursuant to applicable Law or Contract made available to AbbVie prior to the date hereof.

Section 7.4Employment and Benefit Matters.

(a) From the date of Completion through the earlier of (i) the second anniversary of the Effective Time, and (ii) December 31, 2021 (or, if shorter, the period of employment of the relevant Allergan Employee) (the "Benefits Continuation Period"), Acquirer Sub shall provide, and AbbVie shall cause Acquirer Sub to provide, to (i) each Allergan Employee a base salary that is no less favorable than the base salary provided to such Allergan Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time, (ii) each Allergan Employee a target annual cash bonus opportunity that is no less favorable than the target annual cash bonus opportunity provided to such Allergan Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time, (iii) an Allergan Employee  who is eligible to be selected to receive an annual equity compensation opportunity (inclusive of dividend equivalent rights) as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, pursuant to the ordinary course practices of Allerganas in effect of, and disclosed to AbbVie prior to, the date hereof, shall continue to be eligible to be selected to receive an annual equity compensation opportunity, with a target grant date value that is no less favorable than the target grant date value of the annual equity compensation opportunity (inclusive of dividend equivalent rights) applicable to his or her global grade level, as reflected in the "2019 Long-Term Incentive Targets" schedule provided to AbbVie prior to the date hereof), and AbbVie shall make such grants at the same rate of participation per global grade level as disclosed to AbbVie prior to the date hereof and with the form of the equity compensation opportunity to be determined in AbbVie's sole discretion, and (iv) to the Allergan Employees as a group, employee benefits that are, in the aggregate, no less favorable than the employee benefits provided to the Allergan Employees under the Allergan Benefit Plans as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time; provided, that for purposes of determining whether such employee benefits are no less favorable in the aggregate, any defined benefit pension plan benefits, nonqualified deferred compensation, subsidized retiree health or welfare benefits, post-termination health or welfare benefits, and retention or change in control payments or awards shall not be taken into account. 

(b) In addition, Acquirer Sub shall provide, and AbbVie shall cause Acquirer Sub to provide, to each Allergan Employee who experiences a termination of employment during the Benefits Continuation Period, severance benefits that are no less favorable than the severance benefits to which such Allergan Employee would have been entitled upon such a termination of employment under any Allergan Benefit Plan that is a severance plan, policy, program, agreement or arrangement and set forth on Section 7.4(b) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule (collectively, the "Severance Arrangements") and in which such Allergan Employee was eligible to participate as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, but only to the extent such Severance Arrangements are set forth on Section 7.4(b) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule and were furnished to the Buyer prior to the date hereof.  For purposes of determining compliance with this Section 7.4(b), only the existing terms of the Severance Arrangements will be taken into account, and any modifications to the Severance Arrangements that are effective after the date hereof but prior to the Effective Time (and are made without AbbVie's advance written consent) will be disregarded.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, for each Allergan Employee who is eligible to participate in the Severance Arrangements marked with an asterisk (*) on Section 7.4(b) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, the protected period under this Section 7.4(b) shall apply to a termination of employment that occurs during the two-year period immediately following the Effective Time.

(c) For purposes of vesting, eligibility to participate and determining level of benefits under the employee benefit plans of AbbVie providing benefits  to any Allergan Employees (the "New Plans"), each Allergan Employee shall be credited with his or her years of service with the Allergan Group and its predecessors before the Effective Time, to the same extent and for the same purpose as such Allergan Employee was entitled, before the Effective Time, to credit for such service under the corresponding Allergan Benefit Plan in which such Allergan Employee participated or was eligible to participate immediately prior to the Effective Time, provided that the foregoing shall not apply with respect to (A) any defined benefit pension plan or any retiree or post-termination health or welfare benefits, (B) any benefit plan that is frozen or for which participation is limited to a grandfathered population, (C) any cash- or equity-based compensation arrangements, or (E) to the extent that its application would result in a duplication of benefits or compensation with respect to the same period of service, and provided further that such service shall only be credited to the extent service with AbbVie is credited for similarly situated employees of the AbbVie Group under the New Plans.  In addition, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (A) each Allergan Employee shall be immediately eligible to participate, without any waiting time, in any and all New Plans to the extent coverage under such New Plan is replacing comparable coverage under an Allergan Benefit Plan in which such Allergan Employee had already satisfied any such waiting period and participated immediately before the Effective Time (such plans, collectively, the "Old Plans"), and (B) for purposes of each New Plan providing medical, dental, pharmaceutical and/or vision benefits to any Allergan Employee, AbbVie shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause (1) all pre-existing condition exclusions and actively-at-work requirements of such New Plan to be waived for such employee and his or her covered dependents, unless and to the extent the individual, immediately prior to entry in the New Plans, was subject to such conditions under the comparable Old Plans, and (2) any eligible expenses incurred by such employee and his or her covered dependents during the portion of the plan year of the Old Plan ending on the date such employee's participation in the corresponding New Plan begins to be taken into account under such New Plan for purposes of satisfying all deductible, coinsurance and maximum out-of-pocket requirements applicable to such employee and his or her covered dependents for the applicable plan year as if such amounts had been paid in accordance with such New Plan.

(d) AbbVie hereby acknowledges that a "change of control" (or similar phrase) within the meaning of any Allergan Benefit Plan will occur at or prior to the Effective Time, as applicable.

(e) AbbVie and Allergan shall cooperate in respect of consultation obligations and similar notice and bargaining obligations owed to any employees or consultants of Allergan or any Subsidiary of Allergan, or any of their respective bargaining representatives, in accordance with all applicable Laws and works council or other bargaining agreements, if any.  Allergan shall satisfy all such obligations prior to the Effective Time.

(f) AbbVie and Allergan agree to the additional matters set forth in Section 7.4(f) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule.

(g) Nothing contained in this Section 7.4 (whether express or implied) shall (i) create or confer any rights, remedies or claims upon any employee of Allergan or any of its Affiliates or any right of employment or engagement or continued employment or engagement or any particular term or condition of employment or engagement for any Allergan Employee or any other Person, (ii) be considered or deemed to establish, amend, or modify any Allergan Benefit Plan or any other benefit or compensation plan, program, policy, agreement, arrangement, or Contract, (iii) prohibit or limit the ability of AbbVie or any of its Affiliates to amend, modify or terminate any benefit or compensation plan, program, policy, agreement, arrangement, or contract at any time assumed, established, sponsored or maintained by any of them or (iv) confer any rights or benefits (including any third-party beneficiary rights) on any Person other than the Parties.

Section 7.10 Transaction Litigation.  Subject to the last sentence of this Section 7.10, each of Allergan and AbbVie shall promptly notify the other of any stockholder Actions (including derivative claims) commenced against it, its Subsidiaries and/or its or its Subsidiaries' respective directors or officers relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby or any matters relating thereto (collectively, "Transaction Litigation") and shall keep the other Party informed regarding any Transaction Litigation.  Other than with respect to any Transaction Litigation where the Parties are adverse to each other, each of Allergan and AbbVie shall reasonably cooperate with the other in the defense or settlement of any Transaction Litigation, and shall give the other Party the opportunity to consult with it regarding the defense and settlement of such Transaction Litigation and shall consider in good faith the other Party's advice with respect to such Transaction Litigation, and Allergan shall give AbbVie the opportunity to participate in (but not control), at AbbVie's expense, the defense and settlement of such Transaction Litigation.  Prior to the Effective Time, other than with respect to Transaction Litigation where the Parties are adverse to each other, neither Allergan nor any of its Subsidiaries shall settle or offer to settle any Transaction Litigation without the prior written consent of AbbVie (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 7.10, in the event of any conflict with any other covenant or agreement contained in Section 7.2 that expressly addresses the subject matter of this Section 7.10, Section 7.2 shall govern and control.

Section 7.11 Dividends.  Each of Allergan and AbbVie shall coordinate with the other on the payment of dividends with respect to Allergan Shares and AbbVie Shares, and the declaration and setting of record dates and payment dates relating thereto, in respect of any calendar quarter so that Allergan Shareholders do not receive dividends on both the Allergan Shares and AbbVie Shares received in the Acquisition in respect of the same calendar quarter or fail to receive a dividend on either Allergan Shares or AbbVie Shares received in the Acquisition in respect of any calendar quarter.

Section 7.12 State Takeover Statutes.  Each of AbbVie and Allergan shall (a) take all action necessary so that no "moratorium," "control share acquisition," "fair price," "supermajority," "affiliate transaction" or "business combination" statute or regulation or other similar state anti-takeover Law, or any similar provision of the Organizational Documents of Allergan or the Organizational Documents of AbbVie, as applicable, is or becomes applicable to the Scheme, the Acquisition or any of the other transactions contemplated hereby, and (b) if any such Law or provision is or becomes applicable to the Scheme, the Acquisition or any other transactions contemplated hereby, cooperate and grant such approvals and take such actions as are reasonably necessary so that the transactions contemplated hereby may be consummated as promptly as practicable on the terms contemplated hereby and otherwise act to eliminate or minimize the effects of such Law on the Scheme, the Acquisition or the other transactions contemplated hereby.

Section 7.13 Acquirer Sub.  Until the Effective Time, AbbVie shall at all times be the direct or indirect owner of all of the outstanding shares of capital stock of Acquirer Sub.  AbbVie shall take all action necessary to cause Acquirer Sub to perform its obligations under this Agreement and to consummate the Acquisition on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement.

ARTICLE 8
COMPLETION OF ACQUISITION AND MERGER

Section 8.1 Completion.

(a) Completion Date.  Completion shall take place at 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on a date to be selected by AbbVie in consultation with Allergan as promptly as reasonably practicable following, but not later than the third Business Day (or such shorter period of time as remains before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the End Date) after, the satisfaction or, in the sole discretion of the applicable Party, waiver (where applicable) of all of the Conditions ("Completion Date") (other than those Conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at the Completion Date, but subject to the satisfaction or waiver of such Conditions at the Completion Date) with the exception of Condition 2(iv) (but subject (where applicable) to the satisfaction or waiver (where applicable) of such Condition) or at such other date and/or time as may be mutually agreed to by AbbVie and Allergan in writing, it being agreed that, only if reasonably practicable, Completion shall take place on the date that Condition 2(iii) is satisfied.  Completion shall take place at the offices of Kirkland & Ellis LLP, 601 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10022, or at such other place as may be mutually agreed to by AbbVie and Allergan in writing.

(b) On or prior to Completion:

(i) Allergan shall cause a meeting of the Allergan Board (or a duly authorized committee thereof) to be held at which resolutions are passed (conditional on registration of the Court Order with the Registrar of Companies occurring and effective as of the Effective Time) approving:

(A) the allotment and issue to Acquirer Sub (and/or its respective nominee) in accordance with the Scheme of the number of new shares in the capital of Allergan provided for in the Scheme;

(B) the removal of the directors of Allergan as AbbVie shall determine; and

(C) the appointment of such persons as AbbVie may nominate as the directors of Allergan.

(ii) Allergan shall deliver to AbbVie statements of Allergan Finco Inc., a Delaware corporation, and Allergan Pharma Inc., a Delaware corporation, which meet the requirements of Treasury Regulation Section 1.897‑2(h)(1)(i), dated within 30 days prior to the Completion Date, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to AbbVie.

(c) On or substantially concurrently with the Completion and subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Scheme:

(i) in respect of each Allergan Share subject to the Scheme, AbbVie shall pay or cause to be paid the Cash Consideration to the applicable Allergan Shareholder (and/or their nominees);

(ii) AbbVie shall issue and deliver or cause to be delivered 0.8660 (as it may be adjusted pursuant to Section 8.1(c)(v), the "Exchange Ratio") of an AbbVie Share (the "Share Consideration" and, together with the Cash Consideration and any cash in lieu of Fractional Entitlements due to an Allergan Shareholder, the "Scheme Consideration") to the applicable Allergan Shareholder (and/or their nominees), which Share Consideration shall be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and free of Liens (other than any restrictions imposed by applicable Law) and pre-emptive rights; provided, however, that no fractions of AbbVie Shares ("Fractional Entitlements") shall be issued by AbbVie to the Allergan Shareholders under this Section 8.1(c)(ii), and all Fractional Entitlements that would otherwise have been due to any Allergan Shareholders shall be aggregated and sold in the market by the Exchange Agent with the net proceeds of any such sale distributed pro rata to such Allergan Shareholders in accordance with the Fractional Entitlements to which they would otherwise have been entitled; 

(iii) Allergan shall deliver to AbbVie:

(A) a certified copy of the resolutions referred to in Section 8.1(b)(i);

(B) letters of resignation from the directors that are removed from Allergan in accordance with Section 8.1(b)(i)(B) (each such letter to contain an acknowledgement that such resignation is without any claim or right of action of any nature whatsoever outstanding against Allergan or the Allergan Group or any of their officers or employees for breach of contract, compensation for loss of office, redundancy or unfair dismissal or on any other grounds whatsoever in respect of the removal); and

(C) share certificates in respect of the aggregate number of shares in the capital of Allergan to be issued to AbbVie (and/or its nominee) in accordance with the Scheme;

(iv) Allergan shall cause an office copy of the Court Order and a copy of the minute required by Section 86 of the Act to be filed with the Companies Registration Office and obtain from the Registrar of Companies a Certificate of Registration in relation to the reduction of share capital involved in the Scheme, each of which (in the case of such Court Order, minute and Certificate of Registration) shall be provided by Allergan to AbbVie immediately following Allergan's receipt thereof; and

(v) if the Acquisition would otherwise result in the issuance of AbbVie Shares in excess of 19.99% of the AbbVie Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Completion (as reasonably determined by AbbVie) (the "Share Cap"), the Exchange Ratio shall be reduced by the smallest number (rounded to the nearest 0.0001) that causes the total number of AbbVie Shares issuable in the Acquisition to not exceed the Share Cap (the "Exchange Ratio Modification Number"), and the Cash Consideration shall be increased by an amount in cash equal to (x) the Exchange Ratio Modification Number multiplied by (y) the VWAP of the AbbVie Shares.

(d) Exchange of Allergan Shares.

(i) Exchange Agent.  At or immediately following the Completion, AbbVie shall deposit, or cause to be deposited, with the Exchange Agent, for the benefit of the Allergan Shareholders, (A) certificates or, at AbbVie's option, evidence of shares in book-entry form representing the aggregate Share Consideration, (B) cash in an amount equal to the aggregate amount of Cash Consideration and (C) cash in an amount equal to the aggregate amount of cash in lieu of Fractional Entitlements due to the Allergan Shareholders.  All shares and cash deposited with the Exchange Agent pursuant to the preceding sentence shall hereinafter be referred to as the "Allergan Exchange Fund".

(ii) Exchange Procedures.  As promptly as reasonably practicable after the Effective Time, and in any event within five Business Days after the Effective Time, AbbVie shall cause the Exchange Agent to mail to each holder of record of a certificate or certificates which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented Allergan Shares and each holder of record of non-certificated Allergan Shares represented by book-entry shares that is entitled to receive the Scheme Consideration pursuant to Section 8.1(c)(i) a letter of transmittal and instructions for use in receiving payment of the Scheme Consideration.  Each holder of record of such Allergan Shares shall be entitled to receive promptly following the Effective Time: (a) the amount of cash payable in respect of the Cash Consideration that such holder has the right to receive pursuant to Section 8.1(c)(i)plus the amount of any cash payable in lieu of any Fractional Entitlements that such holder has the right to receive pursuant to Section 8.1(c)(ii) and (b) that number of AbbVie Shares into which such holder's Allergan Shares were converted pursuant to Section 8.1(c)(ii).  No interest shall be paid or shall accrue for the benefit of holders of the Allergan Shares on the Scheme Consideration payable in respect of the Allergan Shares.

(iii) Termination of Allergan Exchange Fund.  Any portion of the Exchange Fund which has not been transferred to the holders of Allergan Shares within twelve months of the Completion Date shall be delivered to AbbVie or its designee(s) promptly upon demand by AbbVie, it being understood that no such delivery shall affect any legal right that an Allergan Shareholder may have to receive the Scheme Consideration.

(iv) No Liability.  None of AbbVie, Acquirer Sub, Allergan or the Exchange Agent or any of their respective Affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents shall be liable to any person in respect of any Scheme Consideration (or dividends or distributions with respect thereto) from the Allergan Exchange Fund delivered to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar Law.

(v) Withholding.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, AbbVie, Allergan, the Exchange Agent and their respective Affiliates shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from any amount payable pursuant to this Agreement to any Person who was a holder of an Allergan Share subject to the Scheme such amounts as AbbVie, Allergan, the Exchange Agent or such Affiliate is required to deduct and withhold with respect to the making of such payment under the Code or any other provision of federal, state, local or non-U.S.  Tax law.  To the extent that amounts are so withheld and timely paid over to the appropriate Tax Authority, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the Person to whom such consideration would otherwise have been paid.

ARTICLE 9
TERMINATION

Section 9.1 Termination.

(a) This Agreement may be terminated and the Acquisition and the other transactions contemplated hereby may be abandoned at any time prior to the Effective Time, notwithstanding receipt of the Allergan Shareholder Approval (except in the case of Section 9.1(a)(ii)(B) or Section 9.1(a)(iii)(B)):

(i) by either Allergan or AbbVie:

(A) if the Court Meeting or the EGM shall have been completed and the Court Meeting Resolution or the Required EGM Resolutions, as applicable, shall not have been approved by the requisite majorities; or

(B) if the Effective Time shall not have occurred by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the End Date, provided that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.1(a)(i)(B) shall not be available to a Party whose breach of any provision of this Agreement shall have been the primary cause of the failure of the Effective Time to have occurred by such time;

(C) if the High Court shall decline or refuse to sanction the Scheme, unless both Parties agree in writing that the decision of the High Court shall be appealed (it being agreed that Allergan shall make such an appeal if requested to do so in writing by AbbVie and the counsel appointed by AbbVie and by Allergan agree that doing so is a reasonable course of action);

(D) if there shall be in effect any (x) Law other than an order, writ, decree, judgment or injunction described in clause (y) (whether or not final or appealable) (excluding any such Antitrust Law of any jurisdiction that is not a jurisdiction listed on Section 7.2(b) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule) in any jurisdiction of competent authority or (y) final and non-appealable order, writ, decree, judgment, or injunction issued, promulgated, made, rendered or entered into by any court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, that, in the case of each of clauses (x) and (y), permanently restrains, enjoins, makes illegal or otherwise prohibits the consummation of the Acquisition; provided that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.1(a)(i)(D) shall not be available to any Party whose breach of any provision of this Agreement shall have been the primary cause of such Law, order, writ, decree, judgment, or injunction;

(ii) by Allergan:

(A) if any AbbVie Party shall have breached or failed to perform in any material respect any of its covenants or other agreements contained in this Agreement or if any of its representations or warranties set forth in this Agreement are inaccurate, which breach, failure to perform or inaccuracy (1) would result in a failure of Condition 5(ii) or 5(iii) and (2) is not reasonably capable of being cured by the End Date or, if curable, is not cured by the earlier of (x) the End Date and (y) 30 days following written notice by Allergan thereof;

(B) prior to obtaining the Allergan Shareholder Approval, if (1) in accordance with Section 5.3, the Allergan Board shall have authorized Allergan to terminate this Agreement under this Section 9.1(a)(ii)(B) in response to an Allergan Superior Proposal and (2) substantially concurrently with such termination, a definitive agreement providing for the consummation of such Allergan Superior Proposal is duly executed and delivered by all parties thereto and, prior to or substantially concurrently with such termination, Allergan pays AbbVie any amounts due under the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement (it being understood that, without limiting Allergan's obligations under the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement, only such costs and expenses for which AbbVie shall have submitted to Allergan in writing a request for such amounts and written invoices or written documentation supporting such request prior to such termination in accordance with the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement shall be due substantially concurrently with such termination);

(iii) by AbbVie:

(A) if Allergan shall have breached or failed to perform in any material respect any of its covenants or other agreements contained in this Agreement or if any of its representations or warranties set forth in this Agreement are inaccurate, which breach, failure to perform or inaccuracy (1) would result in a failure of Condition 4(ii) or 4(iii) and (2) is not reasonably capable of being cured by the End Date or, if curable, is not cured by the earlier of (x) the End Date and (y) 30 days following written notice by AbbVie thereof;

(iv) by mutual written consent of Allergan and AbbVie.

(b) The valid termination of this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with Section 9.1(a) shall not give rise to any liability of the Parties except as provided in the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement, in the proviso to Section 9.1(c) and in Section 9.2. Section 7.9(c) and Article 10 (other than Section 10.1 and 10.12) of this Agreement shall survive, and continue in full force and effect, notwithstanding its termination.

(c) Subject to the proviso in this Section 9.1(c), upon valid termination of this Agreement pursuant to and in accordance with this Article 9, neither Party nor any of its Affiliates or its and their Representatives or shareholders shall have any liability in connection with this Agreement or the Acquisition, other than the obligation of Allergan (if applicable) to pay the AbbVie Reimbursement Payments pursuant to the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement) and the obligation of AbbVie (if applicable) to pay Allergan the Reverse Termination Payment; provided, however, that nothing herein shall release any Party from liability (including any monetary damages or other appropriate remedy) for Willful Breach or for fraud or as provided for in the Confidentiality Agreement.

(d) For clarity, termination of this Agreement shall be without prejudice to the provisions of the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement.

Section 9.2 Certain Effects of Termination.                                  

(a) In the event of a Specified Termination, then AbbVie shall pay to Allergan $1,250,000,000 (the "Reverse Termination Payment") in cleared, immediately available funds within three (3) Business Days thereafter; provided, that Allergan shall not be entitled to receive the Reverse Termination Payment if Allergan's breach of this Agreement shall have been the primary cause of such Specified Termination.

(b) "Specified Termination"  means a valid termination of this Agreement pursuant to:

(i) Section 9.1(a)(i)(B) if, on the date of such termination, each of the Conditions has been satisfied (other than any of Conditions 3(ii), 3(iii), 3(iv), 3(v) or 3(vi)(d) (which failure to be satisfied, in the case of each of Conditions 3(v) and 3(vi)(d), results pursuant to or in connection with an Antitrust Law in any jurisdiction listed on Section 7.2(b) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule), or any Condition that by its nature can only be satisfied on the Sanction Date); or

(ii) Section 9.1(a)(i)(D) pursuant to or in connection with an Antitrust Law in any jurisdiction listed on Section 7.2(b) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule.

(c) Each of the Parties acknowledges that the agreements contained in this Section 9.2 are an integral part of the Acquisition and that the Reverse Termination Payment is not a penalty, but rather is a reasonable amount that will compensate Allergan in the circumstances in which such payment is payable for the efforts and resources expended and opportunities foregone while negotiating this Agreement and in reliance on this Agreement and on the expectation of the consummation of the Acquisition, which amount would otherwise be impossible to calculate with precision. In addition, if AbbVie fails to pay in a timely manner the Reverse Termination Payment, then AbbVie shall reimburse Allergan for its reasonable costs and expenses (including disbursements and fees of counsel) incurred in connection with any Action to obtain such payment, together with interest on the Reverse Termination Payment from and including the date payment of such amount was due to but excluding the date of actual payment at the prime rate set forth in The Wall Street Journal in effect on the date such payment was required to be made plus 2%.

ARTICLE 10
GENERAL

Section 10.1 Announcements.  Subject to the requirements of applicable Law or the applicable rules of any securities exchange or Governmental Entity (including the Panel), the Parties shall consult with each other as to the terms of, the timing of and the manner of publication of any formal public announcement which either Party may make primarily regarding the Acquisition, the Scheme or this Agreement.  AbbVie and Allergan shall each give the other a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon any such public announcement and shall not issue any such public announcement prior to such consultation, except as may be required by applicable Law or the applicable rules of any securities exchange or Governmental Entity (including the Panel).  For clarity, the provisions of this Section 10.1 do not apply to any announcement, document or publication in connection with an Allergan Alternative Proposal, Allergan Superior Proposal or an Allergan Change of Recommendation or any amendment to the terms of the Scheme proposed by AbbVie that would effect an increase in the Scheme Consideration whether before or after an Allergan Change of Recommendation.

Section 10.3 Assignment.  Neither Party shall assign all or any part of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party; provided that AbbVie may assign any or all of its rights and obligations hereunder, in whole or from time to time in part, to one or more of its Subsidiaries and Acquirer Sub may assign its rights and obligations hereunder, in whole or from time to time in part, to any other wholly owned Subsidiary of AbbVie (provided, that the prior consent in writing has been obtained from the Panel in respect of each such assignment), but no such assignment shall relieve AbbVie or Acquirer Sub, as applicable, of its obligations hereunder.

Section 10.4 Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which, taken together, shall constitute one and the same agreement, and each Party may enter into this Agreement by executing a counterpart and delivering it to the other Party (by hand delivery, facsimile process, e-mail or otherwise).

Section 10.5 Amendment.  No amendment of this Agreement shall be binding unless the same shall be evidenced in writing duly executed by each of the Parties, except that, following approval by the Allergan Shareholders, there shall be no amendment to the provisions hereof which by applicable Law would require further approval by the Allergan Shareholders without such further approval nor shall there be any amendment or change not permitted under applicable Law.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, this Section 10.5, Sections 10.13(c) and 10.13(d), Section 10.14 and Section 10.15 may not be amended, supplemented, waived or otherwise modified in any manner adverse to the Financing Sources without the prior written consent of such Financing Sources party to any definitive agreement relating to the Financing (it being expressly agreed that the Financing Sources in their capacities as such shall be third party beneficiaries of this Section 10.5 and shall be entitled to the protections of the provisions contained in this Section 10.5 as if they were a party to this Agreement).

Section 10.6 Entire Agreement.  This Agreement, together with the Confidentiality Agreement, the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement, the Rule 2.5 Announcement and any documents delivered by AbbVie and Allergan in connection herewith (including the AbbVie Disclosure Schedule and the Allergan Disclosure Schedule), constitutes the entire agreement and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, between AbbVie and Allergan with respect to the subject matter hereof, it being understood that the Confidentiality Agreement shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement.

Section 10.7 Inadequacy of Damages. The Parties acknowledge and agree that irreparable harm would occur and that the Parties would not have any adequate remedy at Law (i) for any breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement or (ii) in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms.  It is accordingly agreed that, except where this Agreement is validly terminated in accordance with Section 9.1, the Parties shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this Agreement and to specifically enforce the terms and provisions of this Agreement, without proof of actual damages, and each Party further agrees to waive any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy.  Subject to Section 9.1(c), the Parties further agree that (x) by seeking the remedies provided for in this Section 10.7, a Party shall not in any respect waive its right to seek any other form of relief that may be available to a Party under this Agreement and (y) nothing contained in this Section 10.7 shall require any Party to institute any proceeding for (or limit any party's right to institute any proceeding for) specific performance under this Section 10.7 before exercising any termination right under Section 9.1 (and pursuing damages after such termination), nor shall the commencement of any action pursuant to this Section 10.7 or anything contained in this Section 10.7 restrict or limit any Party's right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the terms of Section 9.1 or pursue any other remedies under this Agreement that may be available then or thereafter.

Section 10.8 Disclosure Schedule References and SEC Document References.

(a) The Parties agree that each section or subsection of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule or the AbbVie Disclosure Schedule, as applicable, shall be deemed to qualify the corresponding section or subsection of this Agreement, irrespective of whether or not any particular section or subsection of this Agreement specifically refers to the Allergan Disclosure Schedule or the AbbVie Disclosure Schedule, as applicable.  The Parties further agree that (other than with respect to any items disclosed in Section 6.1(A)(k) of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule or Section 6.2(A)(h) of the AbbVie Disclosure Schedule, for which an explicit reference in any other section shall be required in order to apply to such other section) disclosure of any item, matter or event in any particular section or subsection of either the Allergan Disclosure Schedule or the AbbVie Disclosure Schedule shall be deemed disclosure with respect to any other section or subsection of the Allergan Disclosure Schedule or the AbbVie Disclosure Schedule, as applicable, to which the relevance of such disclosure would be reasonably apparent on its face, notwithstanding the omission of a cross-reference to such other section or subsections.

(b) The Parties agree that in no event shall any disclosure contained in any part of any Allergan SEC Document or AbbVie SEC Document entitled "Risk Factors", "Forward-Looking Statements", "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements", "Special Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements" or "Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements" or any other disclosures in any Allergan SEC Document or AbbVie SEC Document that are cautionary, predictive or forward-looking in nature be deemed to be an exception to (or a disclosure for purposes of or otherwise qualify) any representations and warranties of any Party contained in this Agreement.

Section 10.9 Remedies and Waivers.  No delay or omission by either Party in exercising any right, power or remedy provided by Law or under this Agreement shall affect that right, power or remedy or operate as a waiver of it.  The exercise or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy provided by Law or under this Agreement shall not preclude any other or further exercise of it or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy.

Section 10.10 Severability.

(a) If any term, provision, covenant or condition of this Agreement or the Acquisition is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or other Governmental Entity to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement or, as appropriate, the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Acquisition, so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in an equitable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby may be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible in accordance with applicable Law. 

(b) If at any time any provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect under the Law of any jurisdiction, that shall not affect or impair (i) the legality, validity or enforceability in that jurisdiction of any other provision of this Agreement; or (ii) the legality, validity or enforceability under the Law of any other jurisdiction of that or any other provision of this Agreement.

Section 10.11 No Partnership and No Agency.  

(a) Nothing in this Agreement and no action taken by the Parties pursuant to this Agreement shall constitute, or be deemed to constitute, a partnership, association, joint venture or other co-operative entity between any of the Parties.

(b) Nothing in this Agreement and no action taken by the Parties pursuant to this Agreement shall constitute, or be deemed to constitute, either Party the agent of the other Party for any purpose.  No Party has, pursuant to this Agreement, any authority or power to bind or to contract in the name of the other Party to this Agreement.

Section 10.12   Costs and Expenses.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement (including Section 7.9 hereof) and the Expenses Reimbursement Agreement, all costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement shall be paid by the Party incurring such cost or expense, except that (a) the Panel's document review fees shall be borne by AbbVie, (b) the costs associated with the filing, printing, publication and proposing of the Rule 2.5 Announcement shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by AbbVie, (c) the costs associated with the filing, printing, publication and proposing of the Scheme Document, Proxy Statement and any other materials required to be proposed to Allergan Shareholders pursuant SEC rules, the Act or the Takeover Rules shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by Allergan, (d) the filing fees incurred in connection with notifications with any Governmental Entities under any Antitrust Laws, shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by AbbVie and (e) the cost incurred in connection with soliciting proxies in connection with the Court Meeting and the EGM shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by Allergan.

Section 10.13 Governing Law and Jurisdiction.
