A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit regarding the price that individuals and insurers paid for TriCor® and other prescription drugs containing fenofibrate. The lawsuit, In re TriCor Indirect Purchasers Antitrust Litigation, Civil Action No. 05-360 (SLR), is pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. The lawsuit claims that the companies that manufacture and market TriCor® hurt competition. As a result, the lawsuit claims, a class of Consumers and Third-Party Payors (“TPPs”) such as health insurers and employee benefit plans paid too much for the products. The defendants deny the claims. No question is raised about the safety or effectiveness of TriCor® or other fenofibrate drugs.

Consumers: You are automatically included in the settlement if you paid some or all of the purchase price for a prescription fenofibrate drug product between April 9, 2002 and May 8, 2009.

Third-Party Payors: You are automatically included in the settlement if you paid some or all of the purchase price, or reimbursed an insured or health plan participant or beneficiary for some or all of the purchase price, for a prescription fenofibrate drug product between April 9, 2002 and May 8, 2009.

Excluded from the Class are: (a) Defendants and their respective subsidiaries and affiliates and (b) all government entities (except for government-funded employee benefit funds), and (c) all persons or entities that purchased fenofibrate products for purposes of resale or directly from any of the Defendants to the extent and solely to the extent of such purchases for purposes of resale or such direct purchases. Also excluded are certain health plans that separately settled with Defendants.
