Valeant increased the offer price to acquire all the outstanding common stock of Salix from $158.00 per share to $173.00 per share in cash, or a total enterprise value of approximately $15.8 billion, through April 7, 2015.

The revised offer price of $173.00 per share provides an additional approximately $1 billion in cash consideration to Salix stockholders, and represents an increase of 9.49% and 43.9%, respectively, over the original offer price of $158.00 per share and the unaffected price of Salix common stock on January 16, 2015, of $120.19.

As previously announced, if the minimum tender condition is satisfied at the end of the day on March 31, 2015, Valeant expects to close the transaction on April 1, 2015.

If all of the conditions to the tender offer have not been satisfied by April 8, 2015, the offer price will drop back to $158.00 per share.

In consideration for the increase of the offer price through April 7, 2015, the termination fee payable by Salix to Valeant has been increased by $100 million and the outside date after which either party may terminate the transaction has been moved from August 20, 2015, to May 1, 2015.

The amendment was approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies.
