("Forest"). The acquisition of Forest will be effected pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement"), dated February 17, 2014, by and among Actavis, Forest, Tango US Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation, Tango Merger Sub 1 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Merger Sub 1"), and Tango Merger Sub 2 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Merger Sub 2"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Actavis will acquire Forest in a series of merger transactions. Merger Sub 1 will merge with and into Forest (the "First Merger") and, immediately following the First Merger, Forest will merge with and into Merger Sub 2, with Merger Sub 2 continuing as the surviving company. The Actavis EGM was called to vote on the following proposals:



(1) Approval of Actavis Share Issuance Proposal (the "Actavis Share Issuance

Proposal"). To approve the issuance of ordinary shares pursuant to the Merger Agreement. (2) Adjournment Proposal. Proposal to approve any motion to adjourn the



Actavis EGM, or any adjournments thereof, to another time or place if

necessary or appropriate to, among other things, solicit additional

proxies if there are insufficient votes at the time of the Actavis EGM to
