July 19, 2010

CHADDS FORD, Pa., July 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Endo Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: ENDP) CEO Dave Holveck, along with company executives, will mark Endo’s 10th anniversary as a publicly traded company by ringing the opening bell at the NASDAQ Marketsite on Monday, July 19, in Times Square in New York.

Endo and its employees will be recognizing this milestone at an important juncture in the company’s history. In recent years, Endo Pharmaceuticals has elevated itself from a marketer of products primarily in the pain space into a full-service healthcare solutions provider – developing drugs, treatments, devices, diagnostics and services in pain, urology, oncology and endocrinology.

“This has been an amazing and transformative decade for Endo Pharmaceuticals. Our company is responding to a new era in healthcare by offering more products, filling gaps in demand, delivering innovative solutions and providing more effective care to patients,” said Dave Holveck, president and CEO of Endo. “We have, with the help of our employees and partners, responded to a dramatically changing healthcare environment and built our company to be a uniquely diversified provider of multiple medical solutions.

“We have taken this company through a tremendous amount of change, and today we are well positioned to be an even better partner to physicians, payment providers and patients by offering multiple products and platforms and by identifying the assets the company needs to succeed,” Holveck said. “These are exciting times at Endo, and we look forward to the next 10 years.”

The Endo NASDAQ Marketsite opening bell ceremony will be Monday, July 19, beginning at 9 a.m. EDT. Live webcast of the event will be available at www.nasdaq.com.
