RE: Announcing Proposed Senior Leadership of Combined International Commercial Business and Operating Model

As Actavis and Allergan continue pre-integration planning, representatives from both companies are working to define the proposed operating structures for the combined company within the international region. The model will be based on the “one company” philosophy with strong brand and generic representation in countries and across regions. The countries and regions will have full Profit & Loss (P&L) responsibility which will empower decision making closer to the customer.

Our International Commercial Operating Model

In the spirit of transparency, we are pleased to outline the proposed International Commercial organization which will come into effect at the closure of the transaction.

International Commercial Organization – Enabling Our Vision of ‘Growth Pharma’

Our International Commercial organization will cover the European, African, Middle East, Canada, Latin America and Asia Pacific geographical areas. As previously announced, our International Commercial organization will be comprised of a Branded Commercial Organization reporting to Paul Navarre and a Generics Commercial Organization reporting up through Bob Stewart. The purpose of establishing two distinct commercial organizations is to enable the branded and the generics businesses to continue to accelerate growth, given their distinct customer-base and operational focus.

The New Regional Structure within the International Commercial Organization

The International Commercial Organization will be made up of ten regions, each with their own country structures. Each region will be run by a Regional President who will have full Profit & Loss (P&L) responsibility for their region across both our branded and generic businesses. The principle responsibilities for the Regional Presidents will be to fully assess the opportunities within their respective geographies, to ensure alignment with International Commercial strategies and ultimately, to support the national teams to drive revenue and optimize operating income growth.

We are very pleased to announce the proposed selection of the following leaders for the new regions:



To maximize the opportunities across both our branded and generics businesses, the Regional Presidents will have dual reporting lines to Paul Navarre, EVP & President of International Brands and Lars Ramneborn, SVP & President International Generics. Depending on the relative sizes of their branded and generics business operations, the Regional President will have a direct reporting line to either Lars or to Paul, with a secondary reporting line to the other business leader. The five regions reporting to Paul currently generate more than 70% of our international branded revenue while the five regions reporting to Lars generate more than 70% of our international generic revenue. As a result, our new structure will allow us to protect and grow our current business.

Similar to the US market, the Generics Business within Canada will continue to report directly to Bob Stewart. As previously announced, Medis, our third-party business will continue to report directly to Bob Stewart.

Country Management – Delivering Our ‘One Company’ Philosophy

At a country level, we will be implementing a ‘one company’ operating approach. Each Country Manager will be responsible for the combined business within their country, and will be accountable for the P&L for both the branded and generics businesses. The Country Manager will be fully empowered to execute plans according to their business needs, ensuring key decision making is taken close to our customers. The Country Managers will report to the relevant Regional President and will be supported by functional resources deployed nationally, regionally or internationally. Announcements about the proposed Country Management teams will be made in the coming weeks.

International Commercial Organization – Strategic Marketing and Functional Support

The regions and countries will be supported by a team of Branded and Generics/OTC International Marketing Heads who will be responsible for the development of strategic plans for specific franchises. These International Marketing Heads and their teams will act as business champions across the regions and countries. This will enable the combined company to take advantage of business expertise across the breadth of the International markets. We are currently developing the proposed structures for the International Marketing and functional support and we will communicate further on this in the coming weeks. We are currently reviewing the location of regional hubs, but we expect that several of the regions will share regional locations and support staff to maximize efficiency.

As we continue with our pre-integration planning on how we will operate at close, we are increasingly excited about the opportunities that integration will bring. This new model is consistent with our ambition of being ‘Growth Pharma’ by investing resources behind the best growth opportunities. One such opportunity is the recent decision to acquire Auden McKenzie, a generics manufacturer in the UK, which will make the combined company the biggest generics manufacturer in that market.

The management of both companies are committed to transparent and frequent communications. Proposals for the detailed organizational structures, staffing and location decisions have not yet been finalized. Each country within our International Organization has specific regulatory requirements that will need to be addressed before implementation.

We remind everyone that this announcement is for pre-integration planning purposes only, and will not be implemented until final approval post-close. In the meantime, we ask that you keep your focus on driving our current business, as indeed you have been.
