Guru Investment Theses on Allergan PLC

Vanguard Health Care Fund Comments on Actavis PLC - Mar 27, 2015

Actavis (ACT) is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops generic and branded products. We owned Actavis prior to its Forest Labs acquisition but increased our position. We are attracted to the uniqueness of the combined company’s business model, which provides exposure to both generic and branded pharmaceuticals globally. The company’s Irish tax rate could also be strategically important in future mergers and acquisitions. Actavis was the fund’s second-largest holding as of the end of the period.

Bernard Horn Comments on Actavis PLC - Oct 30, 2014

On July 1, Actavis (ACT) announced the completion of its acquisition of Forest Laboratories Inc. (a Fund holding), in a cash and equity transaction valued at approximately $28 billion. We maintained a position in Actavis, as its pro-forma financial statements fit the Polaris valuation profile. As one of the largest generic pharmaceutical companies, Actavis is expected to broaden its product platform with the Forest acquisition, increase operating cash flow and realize $1 billion in cost synergies.
