ITEM 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On January 31, 2018, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (the “Company”) and Allergan plc (“Allergan”) entered into a Settlement Agreement and Mutual Releases (the “Agreement”). The Agreement provides that Allergan will make a one-time payment of $700 million to the Company. Such payment is expected during the first quarter of 2018. The Company expects to use this cash payment for repayment of a portion of its term loan debt.
The Agreement also provides that the Company and Allergan will jointly dismiss the working capital dispute arbitration, as described in the Company’s quarterly report on Form 6-K filed on November 2, 2017, as well as actual or potential claims under the Master Purchase Agreement, dated July 26, 2015, by and between the Company and Allergan, for breach of any representation, warranty or covenant (other than any breach of a post-closing covenant not known as of the date of the Agreement). As reported on an amendment to Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 12, 2018 by Allergan, Allergan beneficially owned approximately 68.7 million of the Company’s ordinary shares as of such date, represented by American Depositary Shares, acquired by Allergan as a portion of the consideration in connection with the Company’s acquisition of Actavis Generics from Allergan under the Master Purchase Agreement.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
