There has been recent and potentially distracting speculation regarding the use of specialty pharmacies for the distribution of pharmaceutical products by certain pharmaceutical companies. Regarding the commercial distribution of Allergan's products, the Company does not rely on specialty pharmacies for the distribution of its products. The Company stated that approximately three percent of Allergan U.S. Branded sales are distributed through unaffiliated specialty pharmacies, the majority of which are unique specialty products, namely BOTOX® Therapeutic and ZENPEP®.

The Anda Distribution segment is a traditional pharmaceutical wholesaler with no specialty pharmacy capabilities or licensing.
