The FTC clearance represents the final regulatory clearance needed by Mylan to close its acquisition of Perrigo and represents the last remaining condition that needs to be satisfied for the successful completion of the offer other than the acceptance condition.

Mylan's executive chairman Robert J. Coury commented, "We are delighted to have received FTC clearance, making our offer for Perrigo now unconditional other than the one final step, which now rests solely in the hands of Perrigo shareholders.

"We are very confident that Perrigo shareholders will support this transaction by tendering their shares by 8:00 am ET on November 13, 2015."

Under the terms of Mylan's offer, Perrigo shareholders will receive $75 in cash and 2.3 Mylan ordinary shares for each Perrigo ordinary share. On September 14, 2015 Mylan officially commenced its formal offer to acquire all outstanding ordinary shares of Perrigo.
