Notes to editors


Shire’s strategic goal is to become the leading specialty
biopharmaceutical company that focuses on meeting the needs of the
specialist physician.  Shire focuses its business on attention
deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), human genetic therapies
(HGT) and gastrointestinal (GI) diseases as well as opportunities
in other therapeutic areas to the extent they arise through
acquisitions.  Shire’s in-licensing, merger and acquisition
efforts are focused on products in specialist markets with strong
intellectual property protection and global rights.  Shire
believes that a carefully selected and balanced portfolio of
products with strategically aligned and relatively small-scale
sales forces will deliver strong results.
