Exhibit 99.1    Press Release issued by Perrigo Company plc, dated November 26, 2014.

No Offer or Solicitation

This Form 8-K does not constitute an offer to sell, or an invitation to subscribe for, purchase or exchange, any securities, nor shall there be any sale, issuance, exchange or transfer of the securities referred to in this announcement in any jurisdiction in contravention of applicable law.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Form 8-K includes certain “forward looking statements” within the meaning of, and subject to the safe harbor created by, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with respect to the business, strategy and plans of the Company, its expectations and its future financial condition and performance. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company’s managements’ beliefs and expectations, are forward looking statements. Words such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential” or the negative of those terms or other comparable terminology are intended to identify forward looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. While the Company believes these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. By their nature, forward looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon future circumstances that may or may not occur. Actual results may differ materially from the Company’s current expectations depending upon a number of factors affecting the Company’s business. These factors include, among others, the inherent uncertainty associated with financial projections; successful completion of the transactions contemplated herein; the risks and uncertainties normally incident to the pharmaceutical industry, including product liability claims and the availability of product liability insurance; market acceptance of and continued demand for the Company’s products; changes in tax laws or interpretations that could increase the Company’s tax liabilities; and such other risks and uncertainties detailed in the Company’s periodic public filings with the SEC, including but not limited to those discussed under “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 28, 2014, in the subsequent filings with the SEC and in other investor communications of the Company from time to time. The forward-looking statements in this document are made only as of the date hereof, and unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.


Pursuant to the requirement of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
