Mylan's executive chairman Robert J. Coury commented, "Today marks yet another important milestone in the process of completing our acquisition of Perrigo and serves as further affirmation of the sound industrial logic of this compelling combination.

"We look forward to continuing on this path and completing the transaction in the coming months."
