disagreement to the Elan Companies within 10 days after the receipt of the Elan
Companies' Notice of allocation. If the Acquirors provide such Notice of
disagreement to the Elan Companies, the parties shall proceed in good faith to
determine the allocation in dispute. If, within 10 days after the Elan Companies
receive the Acquirors' Notice of disagreement, the parties have not reached
agreement, the Accountants shall be engaged to determine the final allocation in
dispute. The Elan Companies and the Acquirors shall share equally the fees of
such Accountants. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary elsewhere in this
Section 4.02, in no event shall any portion of the EPIL Consideration be
allocated to EPI (or to the assets owned by EPI) or any portion of the EPI
Consideration be allocated to EPIL (or to the assets owned by EPIL).

connection with the transfer and sale of the Purchased Assets as contemplated by
the terms of this Agreement, including all recording or filing fees, notarial
fees and other similar costs of Closing, that may be imposed, payable,
collectible or incurred shall be borne by the Acquirors. The Acquirors shall

applicable Transfer Taxes. The parties hereto agree to reasonably cooperate with
each other to claim any applicable exemption from, or reduction of, any

         (b) The Purchase Price shall be exclusive of any value added tax which,
if charged, shall be payable by the Acquirors.

         SECTION 4.04. Tax Withholding. All payments under this Agreement will
be made without any deduction or withholding for or on account of any Taxes. The
parties hereto agree to reasonably cooperate with each other, including by

reduction of, any such applicable Taxes.

         SECTION 4.05. Closing Date Inventory Value Adjustments. (a) As promptly
as practicable, but in any event not later than 30 days after the Closing Date,
the Elan Companies shall prepare and deliver to the Acquirors a statement
calculating the Closing Date Inventory Value (the "Closing Date Inventory Value
Statement").

         (b) During the 30 day period immediately following the Acquirors'
receipt of the Closing Date Inventory Value Statement, the Acquirors shall be
permitted to review the Elan Companies' Books and Records to the extent
reasonably necessary for the Acquirors to evaluate the Closing Date Inventory
Value Statement. The Closing Date Inventory Value Statement shall become final
and binding upon the Acquirors and the Elan Companies at the end of such 30 day
period, unless the Acquirors object to the Closing Date Inventory Value
Statement, in which case they shall send written notice (the "Notice of
Objection") to the Elan Companies within such period, setting forth in specific
detail the basis for their objection and their proposal for any adjustments to
the Closing Date Inventory Value Statement. If a timely Notice of Objection is
received by the Elan Companies, then the Closing Date Inventory Value Statement
shall become final and binding (except as provided below with respect to
resolution of disputes) on the Elan Companies and the Acquirors on the first to
occur of (x) the date the Elan Companies and the Acquirors resolve in writing
any differences they have with respect to the matters specified in the Notice of
Objection and (y) the date all matters in dispute are finally resolved in
writing by the Accountants, in each case as provided below. The Elan Companies
and the Acquirors shall seek in good faith to reach agreement as to any such
proposed adjustment or that no such adjustment is necessary within 10 days
following receipt of the Notice of Objection. If agreement is reached in writing
within such 10 day period as to all proposed adjustments, or that no adjustments
are necessary, the Elan Companies and the Acquirors shall revise the Closing
Date Inventory Value Statement accordingly. If the Elan Companies and the
Acquirors are unable to reach agreement within 10 days following receipt of the
Notice of Objection, then the Accountants shall be engaged at that time to
review the Closing Date Inventory Value Statement, and shall make a
determination as to the resolution of any adjustments. The determination of the
Accountants shall be delivered as soon as practicable following engagement of
the Accountants, but in no event more than 30 days thereafter, and shall be
final, conclusive and binding upon the Elan Companies and the Acquirors and the
parties shall revise the Closing Date Inventory Value Statement accordingly. The
parties agree that judgment may be entered on such determination in any court
having jurisdiction. The Elan Companies, on the one hand, and the Acquirors, on
the other hand, shall each pay one-half of the cost of the Accountants. Within

                                      -27-

10 days after the date on which the Closing Date Inventory Value Statement
becomes final and binding on the Elan Companies and the Acquirors, the Acquirors
shall pay the Closing Date Inventory Value Adjustment to the Elan Companies, if
positive, and the Elan Companies shall pay the Closing Date Inventory Value
Adjustment to the Acquirors, if negative.

         SECTION 4.06. Skelaxin Purchase Price Adjustment. If a Skelaxin Adverse
Determination Event shall not have occurred on or prior to December 31, 2003, on
January 2, 2004, the Acquirors shall pay or cause to be paid to EPI, by
electronic funds transfer of immediately available funds to the account of EPI,
the additional sum of $25,000,000 in respect of the Skelaxin Assets. Any payment
pursuant to this Section 4.06 shall be deemed to be part of the Purchase Price.
The Acquirors shall not sell, assign, transfer or otherwise dispose of all or
substantially all of the Skelaxin Intellectual Property in any transaction or
series of related transactions to any Person unless, as a condition thereto,
such Person assumes in writing (in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to
the Elan Companies) all of the King Companies' obligations under this Section
4.06 (it being understood that nothing in this sentence shall prohibit any
security interest on the Skelaxin Intellectual Property; provided, however, that
upon the foreclosure of any such security interest, the assignee shall take such
Skelaxin Intellectual Property subject to the King Companies' obligations under
this Agreement). In addition, (x) not less than ten (10) Business Days prior to
any sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of any portion of the
Skelaxin Intellectual Property and (y) not less than five (5) Business Days
prior to the grant of any Encumbrance on any portion of the Skelaxin
Intellectual Property, in each case, the King Companies shall notify the Elan
Companies thereof in writing and promptly provide the Elan Companies with any
information relating thereto as the Elan Companies shall reasonably request.

handling and payment of all such rebates relating to the Products which are

for the price to be paid by such PHS Entity pursuant to 42 U.S.C. (Section)
256b(a), the Elan Companies shall pay to the Acquirors an amount equal to the
difference between the average manufacturer price for Skelaxin for the calendar
quarter ended March 31, 2003 and the amount required to be paid by such PHS
entity pursuant to 42 U.S.C. (Section) 256b(a) for any such sales. The Elan
Companies shall make such payments to the King Companies from time to time
within ten (10) Business Days after the receipt by the Elan Companies of

documentation as the Elan Companies may reasonably request with respect to such
sales.

Rebate Period. The Elan Companies shall be responsible, at their sole cost and
expense, for the processing, payment, administration and support of all
commercial rebates owed under these agreements for products dispensed during the
applicable Interim Rebate Period. On the first Business Day following the
Closing, the Elan Companies will issue a letter to the commercial rebate
customers advising such customers of the Elan Companies' responsibilities in
connection with commercial rebate agreements and associated rebates.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 8.08, in the
event the Elan Companies are unable to terminate the commercial rebate
agreements at the expiration of the applicable Interim Rebate Period, the
Acquirors shall reimburse the Elan Companies for the payment of commercial
rebates made by the Elan Companies for products dispensed on and after the
expiration of the applicable Interim Rebate Period.

         (d) (i) The Elan Companies have provided to the Acquirors a list of all
government and commercial chargeback agreements in which Products are included.
The Elan Companies and the Acquirors agree that the Elan Companies will continue
to honor all government and commercial chargeback agreements for the forty-five
(45) day period immediately following the Closing (the "Interim Chargeback
Period") and the Elan Companies shall endeavor to terminate each such agreement
with respect to the Products at the end of the Interim Chargeback Period. The
Elan Companies shall be responsible, at their sole cost and expense, for the
processing, payment, administration and support for all chargebacks and
administrative fees owed under these agreements with wholesaler invoice dates
within the Interim Chargeback Period. On the first Business Day following the
Closing, the Elan Companies will issue a letter to the trade (wholesalers and
distributors) and to government and commercial chargeback customers advising
such customers of the Elan Companies' responsibilities in connection with
government and commercial chargeback agreements and associated chargebacks and
administrative fees. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
Section 8.08, in the event the Elan Companies are unable to terminate the
government and commercial chargeback agreements at the expiration of the Interim
Chargeback Period, the Acquirors shall reimburse the Elan Companies for the
payment of chargebacks made by the Elan Companies after the expiration of the
Interim Chargeback Period.

         (ii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section
8.08, the parties acknowledge that the VA National Acquisition Center must
approve the removal of the Products from the Elan Companies Federal Supply
Schedule ("FSS") before the responsibility of processing such rebated is
transferred from the Elan Companies to the Acquiror. Accordingly, in the event
such approval is not obtained prior to the applicable Interim Chargeback Date,
the Elan Companies shall continue to be responsible for processing the FSS
chargebacks on the Acquirors' behalf, and the Acquirors shall reimburse the Elan
Companies for the same.

         (iii) The Elan Companies shall provide the Acquirors with all
information relating to the Products and the prices thereof, which the Acquirors
need in order to comply with applicable rules and regulations relating to P.L.
102-585 as it relates to the FSS and Section 340B of the Public Health Services
Act. When requested, such information shall be provided by the Elan Companies to
the Acquirors promptly, and in any event, within ten (10) Business Days after
any Acquiror's written request thereof.

         (e) Promptly following the Closing, the Acquirors will be responsible
for receiving and processing customer orders and for shipping and invoicing
customers for the Products. Promptly following the Closing, the Parties will
jointly issue a letter to customers within the trade (wholesalers and
distributors) notifying such customers that all future Product orders are to
placed with the Acquirors, and providing the appropriate contact information for
the Acquirors' personnel.

         (f) In the event that the Acquirors increase the published Wholesaler
Acquisition Cost ("WAC") of any of the Products during the applicable Interim
Rebate Period,

                                      -55-
<PAGE>

the Acquirors shall (i) promptly notify the Elan Companies of such increase and
(ii) reimburse the Elan Companies the difference between the previous WAC and
such new increased WAC as it pertains to returns and the affected rebates,
chargebacks and administrative fees.

         SECTION 8.09. Indigent Patient Program. The Elan Companies shall,
through their subcontractor, continue to process claims for the Products under
the Indigent Patient Program until the Closing Date.

         SECTION 8.10. Employee Matters. (a) Effective as of the Closing, the
Acquirors shall offer to employ on an at-will basis each of the primary-care
business unit field sales force and management personnel and internal Elan
personnel dedicated to the Businesses, in each case as set forth on Schedule
8.10 of the Elan Disclosure Schedule (collectively, the "Employees") who is
actively employed as of the Closing, in each case with substantially the same
responsibilities and duties and at a total base salary plus target bonus
opportunity or hourly rate not less than the total base salary plus target bonus
opportunity or hourly rate then applicable to such Employee immediately prior to
the Closing, with such employment to commence as of the Closing. Such offers of
employment shall be delivered to applicable Employees prior to the Closing. For
purposes of this Section 8.10(a), an Employee will be treated as "actively
employed" if as of the Closing such person is actively at work, or on vacation,
holiday, jury duty, military leave, sick leave (not including short-term or
long-term disability) or bereavement leave. In addition, each Employee who as of
the Closing is not actively employed but is on an approved leave of absence
(other than long-term disability), and who within 120 days following the Closing
presents himself or herself to the Acquirors as ready to commence active
employment with the Acquirors, shall at such time also be offered employment on
an at-will basis on the terms set forth above. The Acquirors shall not be
required to offer to employ any Employee who (i) is on long-term disability as
of the Closing or (ii) is on short-term disability as of the Closing and goes on
long-term disability prior to returning to active employment with the Elan
Companies. Except as specifically provided in this Section 8.10(a), Acquirors
shall determine in their sole discretion the terms and conditions of employment
to be offered to Employees. Effective as of the Closing, the Elan Companies
shall terminate the employment of each Employee who receives an offer of
employment from the Acquirors in accordance with this Section 8.10(a). Each
Employee who becomes employed by the Acquirors is herein referred to as a "Hired
Employee".

         (b) Effective as of the Closing (or on any later date of hire by the
Acquirors in the case of an Employee not actively employed at the Closing), all
Employees shall cease participation in all Employee Benefit Plans subject to the
terms of such plans.

         (c) Effective as of the Closing (or on any later date of hire by the
Acquirors in the case of an Employee not actively employed at the Closing),
Employees who are participants in the Elan 401(k) Savings Plan ("Elan's 401(k)
Plan") shall cease to be eligible for any future contributions to Elan's 401(k)
Plan except with respect to compensation from the Elan Companies prior to the
Closing and as provided under Elan's

                                      -56-
<PAGE>

401(k) Plan, and shall be entitled to a distribution of their account balances
under Elan's 401(k) Plan in accordance with such plan and as permitted by the
Code. Hired Employees who receive an eligible rollover distribution (within the
meaning of Section 402(c)(4) of the Code, including a direct transfer of an
eligible rollover distribution within the meaning of Section 401(a)(31) of the
Code) from Elan's 401(k) Plan shall, subject to the provisions of Section 402 of
the Code, be permitted to make a rollover contribution to a defined contribution
plan of the Acquirors ("Acquiror's Defined Contribution Plan"); provided,
however, that the Acquirors are reasonably satisfied (consistent with the
regulations promulgated under Section 401(a)(31) of the Code) that Elan's 401(k)
Plan meets the requirements of Section 401(a) of the Code.

         (d) As of the Closing, the Acquirors shall, with respect to their
vacation, 401(k) and other employee benefit plans, policies, programs or
arrangements that contain a service credit component and that are maintained by
the Acquirors after the Closing (solely to the extent applicable to such Hired
Employee), credit each Hired Employee with the applicable service credited for
such Hired Employee's duration of employment by the Elan Companies (or any
predecessor to the Elan Companies) for purposes of their Employee Benefit Plans.

         (e) Hired Employees shall be eligible to enroll in a health plan
determined by the Acquirors as of the Closing without (i) any waiting periods,
(ii) any evidence of insurability or (iii) application of any pre-existing
physical or mental condition restrictions, except to the extent that such
waiting periods, evidence of insurability or pre-existing mental or physical
condition restrictions would apply under the applicable Elan Companies' medical
benefit plan and be permitted by Law. Without limiting the generality of Section
3.01(b)(ix) and Section 3.01(b)(x), the Elan Companies shall retain
responsibility for all payment of benefits under its medical benefit plan to
Hired Employees (and their eligible dependents) for claims incurred prior to
Closing. The Acquirors shall be responsible for claims for medical benefits
incurred by each Hired Employee (and his or her dependents) on or after each
such Hired Employee's date of hire by the Acquirors under the Acquirors' medical
benefit plan applicable to the Hired Employees. For purposes of the preceding
sentences, a claim shall be deemed to have been incurred on the date on which
medical or other treatment or service was rendered and not the date of inception
of the related illness or injury or the date of submission of a claim related
thereto. The Acquirors shall recognize, or cause to be recognized, the dollar
amount of all expenses incurred by each Hired Employee (and his or her eligible
dependents) during the calendar year in which the date of hire by the Acquirors
occurs for purposes of satisfying such year's deductible and co-payment
limitations and out-of-pocket maximums under the relevant welfare benefit plans
in which such Hired Employee (and his or her eligible dependents) will be
eligible to participate after the Closing. Without limiting the generality of
Section 3.01(b)(ix) and Section 3.01(b)(x), the Elan Companies and their
Affiliates shall retain sole responsibility for all Liabilities in respect of
continuation coverage of health insurance under Section 4980B of the Code or
Part 6 of Title I of ERISA or other similar state or local law to Employees and
any other current and former employees of the Elan Companies

                                      -57-
<PAGE>

and their Affiliates and their eligible dependents with respect to "qualifying
events" (as defined in Section 4980B of the Code) occurring on or prior to the
Closing.

         (f) The Acquirors and the Elan Companies expressly acknowledge and
agree that the Acquirors shall be obligated, in respect of any Hired Employee
whose employment is involuntarily terminated by the Acquirors within six months
following the Closing, to pay all amounts and benefits that the Elan Companies
would have been required to pay under the Elan U.S. Severance Plan (the "Elan
Severance Plan") had the Elan Companies retained such Hired Employee as of the
Closing and terminated such Hired Employee on the date terminated by the
Acquirors so long as (x) such Hired Employee's employment was terminated under
circumstances entitling such Hired Employee to severance benefits under the
terms of the Elan Severance Plan as in effect on the date hereof, and (y) such
Hired Employee executes a valid waiver and release in substantially the same
form as the Waiver and Release Agreement (as defined in the Elan Severance Plan)
which remains unrevoked by such Hired Employee for the applicable seven-day
revocation period provided therein. Nothing in this Section 8.10 shall be
construed as limiting the Acquirors' right to terminate any Hired Employee at
any time, with or without cause. The Elan Companies shall have no Liability or
obligation with respect to severance benefits that may become payable under any
severance benefit plan or arrangement of the Acquirors applicable to Hired
Employees.

         (g) The Acquirors shall be responsible for all Liabilities,
obligations, costs, claims, proceedings and demands, under the WARN Act, or any
state plant closing or notification law, or similar Law in other jurisdictions,
arising out of, or relating to, (i) in respect of Employees, the failure of the
Acquirors to offer employment to Employees in accordance with Section 8.10(a),
or (ii) in respect of Hired Employees, any actions taken by the Acquirors or
their Affiliates after Closing; provided, however, that the Acquirors shall not
be responsible for any such Liabilities, obligations, costs, claims, proceedings
and demands to or in respect of any employees of the Elan Companies other than
the Employees.

         (h) The Elan Companies shall make pro rata bonus payments (the "Stub
Period Bonus") to Hired Employees in respect of each quarterly, annual or other
applicable performance period under the relevant Employee Benefit Plans that has
not yet been completed as of the Closing (each such period, the "Performance
Period"). Such Stub Period Bonuses shall be computed under the terms of the
applicable bonus plan, consistent with past practice. The Stub Period Bonus
shall be paid to the Hired Employees as soon as practicable following the
Closing and the determination of such amounts.

         (i) Following the date of this Agreement, the Elan Companies shall use
commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Acquirors with all information
and data reasonably requested by the Acquirors in connection with the Acquirors'
rights and obligations under this Section 8.10, including exchanging information
and data relating to employee benefits and employee benefit plan coverages
(except to the extent prohibited by applicable Law).

                                      -58-
<PAGE>

         SECTION 8.11. Bulk Transfer Laws. The Acquirors hereby waive compliance
by the Elan Companies and their respective Subsidiaries with the provisions of
any so-called "bulk transfer law" of any jurisdiction in connection with the
sale of the Purchased Assets to the Acquirors.

         SECTION 8.12. Covenant Not to Compete. (a) For a period of three (3)
years following the Closing Date (the "Applicable Period"), neither the Elan
Parent nor any of its Subsidiaries, nor its or their respective successors or
assigns nor any of its or their respective agents acting on their behalf, shall
engage, license or assist another to engage (which restriction with respect to
assisting others will commence on the Original Agreement Date) in the marketing,
distribution or sale of (i) Skelaxin, any Skelaxin Product Improvement or any
Generic Skelaxin in the Skelaxin Territory or (ii) Sonata, any Sonata Line
Extension, or any Generic Sonata in the Sonata Territory (each, a "Competing
Product"). Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if the Elan Parent or any of
its Subsidiaries signs a definitive agreement with respect to a merger or
acquisition by which such Person would acquire rights (other than residual
financial rights) in a Competing Product at any time during the Applicable
Period, then such Person (or the entity which acquired such Person or into which
such Person has merged) shall have nine (9) months from the closing of such
definitive agreement to divest itself of such rights in the Competing Product
(unless the Acquirors agree in writing that such divestiture is not required)
and, during such nine (9) month period, the manufacture, promotion, marketing
and/or sale of such Competing Product shall not be in violation of this Section
8.12. In the case of divestiture under the preceding sentence, such divestiture
can occur by either (x) an outright sale of all rights in the Competing Product
to a third party or (y) an out-license to a third party (exclusive as to the
Elan Parent and its Subsidiaries, except that the Elan Parent and its
Subsidiaries may continue manufacturing the Competing Product for the licensee
for a reasonable period of time) of the right to make, have made, use, sell,
offer for sale and import such Competing Product; provided, however, that the
Elan Parent and its Subsidiaries may only retain residual financial rights to
such Competing Product and must not exercise or have the ability to exercise any
role or influence in any manner over the performance of any clinical trials with
respect to such Competing Product, or the sale, offering for sale or other
promotion of such Competing Product.

         (b) In addition, no Elan Company will solicit any Hired Employee of the
Acquirors or their Subsidiaries for the purpose of having any such employee
terminate his or her employment with the Acquirors or their Subsidiaries for a
period of two years following the Closing Date; provided, however, that this
Section 8.12(b) shall not prohibit general solicitations of or advertisement for
employment by the Elan Companies that are not generally directed at Hired
Employees.

         (c) It is the intention of the parties that if any of the restrictions
or covenants contained in this Section 8.12 is held to cover a geographic area
or to be for a length of time which is not permitted by applicable Law, or in
any way construed to be too broad or to any extent invalid, such provision shall
not be construed to be null, void and of no effect, but to the extent such
provision would be valid or enforceable under applicable Law,

                                      -59-
<PAGE>

such provision shall be construed and interpreted or reformed so as to provide
for a covenant having the maximum enforceable geographic area, time period and
other provisions (not greater than those contained herein) as shall be valid and
enforceable under such applicable Law. Each of the parties acknowledges,
however, that this Section 8.12 has been negotiated by the parties and that the
geographical and time limitations on activities, are reasonable in light of the
circumstances pertaining to the parties.

         (d) In the event of any breach or threatened breach by of any provision
of this Section 8.12, the other party shall be entitled to seek injunctive or
other equitable relief restraining such party from competing or soliciting in
violation of this Section 8.12. Such relief shall be in addition to and not in
lieu of any other remedies that may be available, including an action for the
recovery of Damages.

         (e) For the avoidance of doubt, if any Person acquires Control of the
Elan Parent, whether by stock purchase, merger or other transaction, no
provision of this Section 8.12 shall apply to such acquiror or its Affiliates
other than the Elan Parent and its Subsidiaries but this Section 8.12 shall
continue to apply to the Elan Parent and its Subsidiaries; provided, however,
that the Elan Parent and its Subsidiaries may transfer drug delivery
technologies or any other assets to such acquiror even if such acquiror uses
such assets in a Competing Product, so long as the drug delivery technologies or
other assets transferred by the Elan Parent and its Subsidiaries do not
themselves comprise a Competing Product.

         (f) After the Closing, the Elan Companies shall not sell Skelaxin to
any Person that the Elan Companies believe will resell such Skelaxin in the
Skelaxin Territory. After the Closing, the King Companies shall not sell
Skelaxin to any Person (other than the Elan Companies) that the King Companies
believe will resell such Skelaxin outside of the Skelaxin Territory.

         SECTION 8.13. Further Assurances. (a) On and after the Closing Date,
the Elan Companies shall from time to time, at the request of the Acquirors,
execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, such other
instruments of conveyance and transfer and take such other actions as the
Acquirors may reasonably request, in order to more effectively consummate the
transactions contemplated hereby and to vest in the Acquirors good and
marketable title to the Purchased Assets (including assistance in the collection
or reduction to possession of any of the Purchased Assets).

         (b) On and after the Closing Date, the Acquirors shall from time to
time, at the request of the Elan Companies, take such actions as the Elan
Companies may reasonably request, in order to more effectively consummate the
transactions contemplated hereby, including the Acquirors' assumption of the
Assumed Liabilities.

         SECTION 8.14. HSR Act and Irish Competition Act Filings. (a) The
Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors and the Elan Companies shall each: (i) take
promptly following the Original Agreement Date all actions necessary to make the
filing required of

                                      -60-
<PAGE>

such party or any of its Affiliates under the HSR Act or notification required
of such party or any of its Affiliates under the Irish Competition Act, but in
any event within fourteen (14) Business Days after the Original Agreement Date;
(ii) comply at the earliest practicable date with any request for additional
information or documentary material received by such party or any of its
Affiliates from the Federal Trade Commission or the Antitrust Division of the
Department of Justice pursuant to the HSR Act and from the equivalent Irish
Competition Authority pursuant to the Irish Competition Act; and (iii) cooperate
with the other parties in connection with any filing under the HSR Act and any
notification under the Irish Competition Act and in connection with resolving
any investigation or other inquiry concerning the transactions contemplated
under this Agreement, the Related Agreements, the Wyeth/Elan Agreements or the
Wyeth/King Agreements commenced by either the Federal Trade Commission or the
Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice or state attorneys general or
the Irish Competition Authority. Each of the Elan Companies, on one hand, and
the Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors, on the other hand, shall be responsible
for its own legal fees for preparing its portion of the HSR Act filings and
Irish Competition Act notification.

         (b) In furtherance and not in limitation of the other covenants of the
parties contained herein, each party shall use commercially reasonable efforts
to resolve such objections, if any, as may be asserted with respect to the
consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby under any antitrust Law. If
any administrative, judicial or legislative Action or Proceeding is instituted
(or threatened to be instituted) challenging the sale and purchase of any of the
Purchased Assets or any other transaction as violative of any antitrust Law,
each party shall cooperate and use commercially reasonable efforts to vigorously
contest and resist any such Action or Proceeding, and to have vacated, lifted,
reversed or overturned any decree, judgment, injunction or other Order that is
in effect and that restricts, prevents or prohibits consummation of the sale and
purchase of the Purchased Assets or any other transaction contemplated under
this Agreement, the Related Agreements, the Wyeth/Elan Agreements and the
Wyeth/King Agreements.

         (c) Each party shall promptly inform the other parties of any material
communication received by such party from the Federal Trade Commission, the
Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice or the Irish Competition
Authority regarding any of the transactions contemplated under this Agreement,
the Related Agreements, the Wyeth/Elan Agreements and the Wyeth/King Agreements.
Each party shall advise the other parties promptly of any understandings,
undertakings or agreements that such party proposes to make or enter into with
the Federal Trade Commission, the Antitrust Division of the Department of
Justice or the Irish Competition Authority in connection with the transactions
contemplated under this Agreement, the Related Agreements, the Wyeth/Elan
Agreements and the Wyeth/King Agreements.

         SECTION 8.15. Elan Companies' Right of Reference. The Acquirors shall
grant the Elan Companies and any of their respective Subsidiaries a right of
cross-reference or right of reference, including as that term is defined in 21
C.F.R. (Section) 314.3(b), to all existing

                                      -61-
<PAGE>

Skelaxin Governmental Permits, Drug Master Files ("DMFs") or other regulatory
submissions relating to Skelaxin as is necessary to support research,
development, regulatory registration, manufacture, distribution, marketing, sale
and promotion of Skelaxin and Current Skelaxin Product Improvements outside of
the Skelaxin Territory. The Acquirors shall provide a signed statement to this
effect, if requested by any of the Elan Companies or any of their respective
Subsidiaries, in accordance with 21 C.F.R. (Section) 314.50(g)(3). The Acquirors
shall keep the Skelaxin Governmental Permits and DMFs up-to-date in the Skelaxin
Territory, and shall inform the Elan Companies prior to any modifications in
order to permit the Elan Companies to amend or supplement any affected
regulatory application or file relating to Skelaxin outside of the Territory. At
the Elan Companies' or any of their respective Subsidiaries' request and
expense, the Acquirors shall provide a copy of any regulatory application or
file relating to Skelaxin that is the subject of a right of cross-reference or
right of reference pursuant to this Section 8.15.

         SECTION 8.16. Litigation Substitution. (a) The King Companies agree and
acknowledge that, promptly after the Closing, the applicable King Companies
shall be substituted as the plaintiff in Case No. EDNY 03 CV 0006, Elan
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. v. Eon Labs, Inc., pending in the U.S. District Court for
the Eastern District of New York and Case No. 03-1013, Elan Pharmaceuticals,
Inc. v. Corepharma, LLC, pending in the District of New Jersey, and in any other
litigations filed by EPI prior to the Closing in response to any certifications
filed by any third party pursuant to 21 U.S.C. (Section) 355(b)(2)(A) or
(Section) 355(j)(2)(A)(vii) relating to the Purchased Assets (the "Patent
Litigations"). The Acquirors and EPI will use their respective commercially
reasonable efforts to accomplish such substitution(s) as soon as possible
following the Closing. In the event that, for whatever reason, a King Company
cannot be substituted as plaintiff in the Patent Litigations, the parties agree
that a King Company shall be the lead plaintiff in the Patent Litigations (with
the rights and duties customarily associated therewith). From the Closing
through and including the earlier to occur of (x) a Skelaxin Adverse
Determination Event or (y) the payment by the Acquirors of the additional
Purchase Price in respect of the Skelaxin Assets set forth in Section 4.06, the
Acquirors shall not settle or compromise the Patent Litigations, if such
settlement or compromise would reasonably be likely to result in a Skelaxin
Adverse Determination Event on or before December 31, 2003, without the prior
written consent of EPI. The Elan Companies shall cooperate with the King
Companies in all respects regarding the Skelaxin Proceedings (as defined in the
Joint Litigation and Prosecution Agreement), including without limitation any
Patent Litigation and all decisions with respect to the filing and prosecution
of any Patent Litigations, including without limitation any decision regarding
whether or not, and when, to respond to any such certification and/or initiate
any particular Patent Litigation, to the extent permitted by relevant privileges
and work product, written agreements and prior orders in the matter affecting
confidentiality of information. EPI will cooperate reasonably with the King
Companies in a full and complete transition of activity in all Patent
Litigations, including sharing with the King Companies documents reasonably
necessary to accomplish the transition, to the extent permitted by relevant
privileges and work product, written agreements and prior orders in the matter
affecting confidentiality of information, making all persons, documents and
things in the possession or control of EPI

                                      -62-
<PAGE>

available to King Companies for use in connection with, or to provide testimony
regarding, the Patent Litigations. King Companies and EPI shall bear their own
expenses in the conduct of the Patent Litigations and in carrying out their
obligations under this Section 8.16, including fees of their own attorneys.

         (b) To the extent EPI is subject to third party discovery in any of the
Patent Litigations following the substitution of such Acquiror, EPI shall have
the right to be represented by independent counsel; provided, however, that EPI
shall coordinate and cooperate with such Acquiror in the conduct of the Patent
Litigations. Each of such Acquiror and, subject to the foregoing, EPI, to the
extent involved as a third party in any of the Patent Litigations or in any
future litigation or proceeding involving Skelaxin, shall retain the right to
make its own independent judgments in all matters on all issues in connection
with such Patent Litigations and any such future litigation or proceeding
involving Skelaxin; provided, however, that EPI shall obtain such Acquiror's
prior consent before asserting any position, argument or defense, or filing any
motion or other pleading; and provided further, however, that EPI shall not
assert any position, argument or defense in any litigation or proceeding that
may be contrary or detrimental to the position, argument or defense asserted by
such Acquiror, nor refrain from asserting any position, argument or defense that
is contrary or detrimental to the position, argument or defense opposed by such
Acquiror. EPI hereby expressly conveys to such Acquiror the right to sue for the
past infringement by Eon Labs, Inc., and all other defendants in the Patent
Litigations or otherwise, or by any third party in connection with the patents
which are the subject of this Agreement.

         (c) Such Acquiror hereby acknowledges that EPI is under no obligation
to provide such Acquiror with any information protected by the attorney-client
privilege or attorney work product immunity. Unless otherwise agreed by EPI and
such Acquiror, (a) in the event that EPI inadvertently produces information
known to such Acquiror to be privileged or work product, or which is
subsequently identified as such, such Acquiror shall not disclose that
information to any third party, including, but not limited to, any governmental
or judicial body, or use that information in any manner whatsoever, absent an
Order to do so, (b) to the extent such information is contained in documents or
things, such Acquiror shall return such documents or things to EPI, and (c)
prior to disclosing or using any such privileged or work product information
pursuant to an administrative or court order, such Acquiror shall make all
commercially reasonable efforts to provide EPI with a reasonable opportunity to
intervene and participate and oppose the order.

         (d) This Agreement shall not create any agency or similar relationship
between such Acquiror and EPI regarding the Patent Litigations. Unless otherwise
agreed by EPI and the Acquiror, no party shall have the authority to waive any
applicable privilege or immunity on behalf of any other party; nor shall any
waiver of an applicable privilege or immunity by the conduct of any party be
construed to apply to any other party. The parties understand that this
Agreement does not create any attorney-client relationship between the parties.
EPI and such Acquiror will mutually discuss whether a common interest or joint
defense privilege is appropriate for the transition in the Patent Litigations
and enter into any

                                      -63-
<PAGE>

agreements necessary or helpful, in the reasonable judgment of both EPI and such
Acquiror, to facilitate such Acquiror's assumption, control and continued
prosecution of the Patent Litigations.

         SECTION 8.17. Cooperation Regarding Financial Statements. In the event
that the Acquirors are required to include any audited financial statements with
respect to the Businesses in any filing to be made by the Acquiror under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended, with respect to or as a result of the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement, the Related Agreements, the Wyeth/Elan Agreements or the Wyeth/King
Agreements, the Elan Companies shall, beginning promptly after the date of this
Agreement, (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Acquirors with
the financial statements and other information and documents pertaining to the
Businesses that the Acquirors will be required by applicable rules and
regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission to include in its filings;
provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, such financial statements
and other information shall be delivered to the Acquirors no later than 60 days
following the Closing Date, and (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to
cause the accountants for the Elan Companies to deliver such information and
provide access to files and work papers in connection therewith as the Acquirors
may reasonably request.

         SECTION 8.18. No Solicitation. (a) Notwithstanding any waivers given by
Acquiror Parent to the Elan Companies prior to the date hereof, from and after
the date hereof and up to and including the Termination Date, without the prior
written consent of the Acquirors, no Elan Company will authorize or permit any
representative or employee of any Elan Company to (i) directly or indirectly
solicit, initiate or encourage (including by way of furnishing information) or
take any other action to facilitate knowingly any inquiries or the making of any
proposal that constitutes or may reasonably be expected to lead to an
Acquisition Proposal from any Person, (ii) engage in any discussion or
negotiation relating thereto or furnish information with respect to the Elan
Companies in connection therewith, except as may be required in the exercise by
it of its fiduciary duties under applicable law after receipt of an Acquisition
Proposal which was unsolicited and did not otherwise result from a breach of
this Section 8.18(a); provided, however, that the Elan Companies shall furnish
copies of any such information to the Acquirors contemporaneously with the
furnishment to any such Person (which furnishment to such Person shall be
subject to a customary confidentiality agreement), or (iii) accept or agree to
accept any Acquisition Proposal. If any Elan Company receives any such
inquiries, offers or proposals it shall promptly notify the Acquirors orally and
in writing of such event. If any Elan Company receives an Acquisition Proposal,
such Elan Company shall promptly notify the Acquirors in writing after the
receipt thereof (including providing a copy thereof in writing), the terms and
conditions of such Acquisition Proposal and the identity of the Person making
such Acquisition Proposal. Such Elan Company also shall promptly notify the
Acquirors of any change to or modification of such Acquisition Proposal. As used
herein, "Acquisition Proposal" means any proposal or offer (other than pursuant
to this Agreement) to acquire in any manner an ownership interest in any part of
the Businesses or the Products.

         (b) Except as may be required in the exercise by them of their
fiduciary duties under applicable Law, none of the governing bodies of any of
the Elan Companies nor any committee thereof shall (i) withdraw or modify, or
propose to withdraw or modify, in a manner adverse to Acquiror Parent or the
Acquirors, the approval or recommendation by such governing body or any such
committee of this Agreement, the Related Agreements and the Wyeth/Elan
Agreements and the transactions contemplated hereunder and thereunder or (ii)
approve or recommend, or propose to approve or recommend, any Acquisition
Proposal (any such action taken in accordance with the foregoing clause (i) or
(ii), an "Adverse Recommendation Change").

         SECTION 8.19. Medical Inquiries and Complaints. The parties will
negotiate in good faith to jointly develop written procedures for the
administration of, and response to, medical inquiries or complaints concerning
Skelaxin by consumers, physicians, pharmacists and other health care
professionals, as soon as practicable, but such written procedures shall be in
place no later than 30 days after the Closing Date. Each party shall use
commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the provisions thereof with
respect to Skelaxin. Notwithstanding the foregoing or the joint written
procedures, the Acquirors shall exclusively have the right to determine how to
respond to medical inquiries and complaints in the Skelaxin Territory and the
Elan Companies shall have such exclusive right outside the Skelaxin Territory.

         SECTION 8.20. Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement; Wyeth/Elan Master Agreement.
At the Closing, (a) EPIL or its designee shall assign its rights and obligations
under the Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement to the applicable Acquiror in accordance
with the terms of the proviso of the first sentence of Section 8.01 of the
Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement; provided, however, that from the date of this
Agreement to the Closing Date, the Elan Companies shall take all actions
necessary to be in compliance with Section 9.3 of the Distribution and
Co-Promotion Agreement and (b) the Elan Parent and EPIL shall assign their
rights under the Wyeth/Elan Master Agreement to the applicable Acquiror in
accordance with the terms of the proviso of the first sentence of Section 9.1
thereof.

proper or advisable under the Pharma Marketing Settlement Agreement in order to
consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by the Pharma
Marketing Settlement Agreement and to cause the conditions to the obligations of
the other parties thereto to consummate the transactions contemplated thereby to
be satisfied at or prior to the Closing. From the date of this Agreement until
the Closing, none of the Elan Companies shall take any action, or fail to take
any action, that could reasonably be expected to cause a breach by the Elan
Companies under the Pharma Marketing Settlement Agreement. The Elan Companies
shall take all necessary action to cause Axogen Limited to comply with the
foregoing.

         SECTION 8.22. Distribution and Co-Promotion Agreement. The Elan
Companies shall terminate the Distribution and Co-Promotion Agreement upon the
Closing.

         SECTION 8.23. Skelaxin License. (a) The parties hereto agree and
acknowledge that, subject to the terms of this Agreement and except as otherwise
set forth in this Section 8.23, solely with respect to use and end users outside
of the Skelaxin Territory, the Elan Companies have retained, and do not grant to
the Acquirors, any right the Elan Companies may have to make, have made, use,
sell, offer for sale, import, develop, distribute, market and otherwise
commercialize Skelaxin or any Skelaxin Product Improvement outside of the
Skelaxin Territory. To the extent applicable, and subject to the terms of this
Agreement, the Acquirors hereby grant to the Elan Companies a non-exclusive,
paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual and irrevocable right and license, with the
right of sublicense, under the Skelaxin Assets to: (i) make, use, sell, offer to
sell Skelaxin in or import Skelaxin into, countries outside of the Skelaxin
Territory, but only to and for use by end users who are outside of the Skelaxin
Territory; (ii) within the Skelaxin Territory, make and have made Skelaxin for
use, sale or export outside the Skelaxin Territory, but only to and for use by
end users who are outside of the Skelaxin Territory; and (iii) conduct such
studies and trials within and without the Skelaxin Territory as may be necessary
or useful for the Elan Companies, solely outside the Skelaxin Territory, to
obtain regulatory approval with respect to Skelaxin. The license to the Elan
Companies provided for under this Section 8.23 shall be assignable only upon the
prior written consent of the Acquiror Parent and the Elan Parent (such consent
not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned); provided, however,
that the rights and obligations provided for by this Section 8.23 may be
assigned, in whole or in part, on a country by country or world-wide basis,
without such consent, to a person or entity who purchases all or substantially
all of the Elan Companies' interest in Skelaxin in such country or the world.

         (b) Notwithstanding anything in this Section 8.23 to the contrary, the
Elan Companies agree and acknowledge that the Acquirors shall have the right to
conduct such studies and trials outside the Skelaxin Territory as may be
necessary or useful for the Acquirors, solely in the Skelaxin Territory, to
obtain regulatory approval with respect to Skelaxin and the Elan Companies
hereby grant to the Acquirors a non-exclusive, paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual
and irrevocable right and license under any patent or patent application within
the Elan Companies' control which claims Skelaxin to, outside of the Skelaxin
Territory, make, have made and use Skelaxin solely in connection with such
studies and trials. The Elan Companies hereby further grant to the Acquirors a
non-exclusive, paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual and irrevocable right and
license outside the Skelaxin Territory to make and have made Skelaxin for use,
sale in and export to the Skelaxin Territory, but only to and for use by end
users who are within the Skelaxin Territory. The license to the Acquirors
provided for under this Section 8.23 shall be assignable only upon the prior
written consent of the Elan Parent (such consent not to be unreasonably
withheld, delayed or conditioned); provided, however, that the rights and
obligations provided for by this Section 8.23 may be assigned, in whole or in
part, on a country by country or world-wide basis, without such consent, to a

                                      -66-
<PAGE>

person or entity who purchases all or substantially all of the Acquirors'
interest in Skelaxin in the Skelaxin Territory.

         (c) Promptly after the execution of this Agreement, the parties hereto
shall meet to coordinate all aspects of material logistics relating to the
commercialization and supply of Skelaxin outside of the Skelaxin Territory,
including, but not limited to, procedures relating to regulatory compliance
matters and clinical coordination associated with the supply of Skelaxin outside
of the Skelaxin Territory. The Elan Companies, solely with respect to use or end
users outside of the Skelaxin Territory, may purchase their reasonable
requirements for Skelaxin manufactured by the Acquirors for delivery outside of
the Skelaxin Territory, but only upon such on terms and conditions, including
price, as are acceptable to both parties hereto. Subject to applicable legal
requirements, the King Companies may affix labeling on Skelaxin sold to the Elan
Companies for purposes of sale outside of the Skelaxin Territory indicating that
such Skelaxin may not be resold in the Skelaxin Territory. Following the Closing
Date, the parties hereto shall cooperate in good faith to apply for a new NDC
code to be applicable to sales of Skelaxin outside of the Skelaxin Territory and
shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such NDC code to be issued as
promptly as practicable.

         SECTION 8.24. NanoCrystal Technology. Upon the Closing and immediately
following the execution and delivery of the Development Agreement, and subject
solely to the Elan Companies' contractual obligations existing as of the date of
this Agreement, the Development Agreement shall be deemed to be amended to
strike the term "NanoCrystal Technology" (as that term is defined in the
Wyeth/Elan Development Agreement) from the definition of "Excluded Technology"
and all of the licenses and rights granted to Purchaser therein shall be deemed
to include the NanoCrystal Technology. During the period from execution of this
Agreement to the Closing, if any, Elan shall not take any actions which would
prevent use of the NanoCrystal Technology to conduct any of the activities or
preclude a grant to the Acquirors of any of the rights or licenses contemplated
by the Development Agreement with respect to the NanoCrystal Technology. The
Acquirors acknowledge that Elan may, prior to or after the Closing, sell,
license or transfer the NanoCrystal Technology intellectual property or sell or
transfer the business encompassing the NanoCrystal Technology; provided,
however, that any such sale, license or transfer shall require any subsequent
purchaser, licensee or transferee to expressly acknowledge and abide by the
obligations of this Section 8.24 and the Development Agreement as it relates to
the NanoCrystal Technology. Notwithstanding any other provision of the
Development Agreement, Elan makes no representations and warranties with respect
to the commercial or technical suitability, patentability or intellectual
property regarding or arising out of the application or use of NanoCrystal
Technology, particularly with reference to a reformulation of zaleplon. In the
event of a conflict between this provision and the Development Agreement, this
provision shall govern.

         SECTION 8.25. Additional Skelaxin Formulations. (a) Subject to Elan's
contractual obligations existing as of the execution hereof, Elan and the
Acquirors shall initiate a development program to reformulate the current dosage
form of Skelaxin either as a

                                      -67-
<PAGE>

pharmaceutical combination containing metaxalone and another active ingredient
or as a new formulation comprising metaxalone using drug delivery technology
within Elan's Control (including, without limitation, as applicable, Elan's
PRODAS(R), SODAS(R) technology or NanoCrystal Technology) (a "Modified Release
Skelaxin"). Elan shall conduct preliminary studies in support of such
development as soon as practicable after the execution of this Agreement and any
expenses incurred by Elan between execution of this Agreement and the Closing as
a result of the activities contemplated by this Section 8.25 shall be paid by
the Acquirors upon either the Closing or the termination of this Agreement.
Prior to the Closing, the parties hereto shall discuss the status of the
preliminary development work provided for herein. As soon as reasonably
practicable following execution hereof, but in no event more than three (3)
months after a Closing, the parties hereto will negotiate in good faith and
execute a separate formulation agreement which shall contain the economic and
other terms provided for on Schedule 8.25 of the Elan Disclosure Schedule (the
"Skelaxin Formulation Agreement"). The activities contemplated by this Section
8.25 or the execution of any agreements relating to a Modified Release Skelaxin
shall not be a condition to a Closing.

         (b) Until the execution of the Skelaxin Formulation Agreement and in
accordance with its terms, as to any Modified Release Skelaxin, regardless of
the Acquirors' ownership of any Purchased Assets constituting a Current Skelaxin
Product Improvement, the Elan Companies shall not be deemed to have granted to
the Acquirors any license to any other patent or patent application, regulatory
approval rights, manufacturing know-how or other proprietary right that may be
required to make, have made, use, sell, offer for sale, import, export or
otherwise commercialize such a Modified Release Skelaxin.

         (c) Notwithstanding anything in this Section 8.25 to the contrary and
except as set forth in the Skelaxin Formulation Agreement, a Modified Release
Skelaxin and any method of making, having made, using, selling, offering for
sale or importing a Modified Release Skelaxin, solely for the purposes of
Section 8.12, shall constitute a Skelaxin Product Improvement.

         SECTION 8.26. Annual Adjustment Amount. The Elan Companies hereby agree
to pay to the Acquirors the portion of the Annual Adjustment Amount (as defined
in the Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement) that relates to the period from January 1,
2003 through and including the Amendment and Restatement Effective Date (as
defined in the Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement) promptly after the Acquirors have
paid such Annual Adjustment Amount pursuant to Section 2.01(b) of the Wyeth/Elan
Supply Agreement and delivered to the Elan Companies a copy of the officer's
certificate referred to in such Section 2.01(b). The Acquirors agree to provide
the Elan Companies with the audit rights with respect to such certificate as is
provided to the Supplier (as defined in the Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement)
pursuant to Section 5.01(c) of the Wyeth/Elan Supply Agreement.

                                 INDEMNIFICATION

         SECTION 11.01. Survival of Representations, Warranties, Covenants, Etc.
The representations and warranties and covenants and agreements to be performed
at or prior to the Closing of the Elan Companies or the Acquiror Parent and the
Acquirors contained in this Agreement and the Related Agreements shall terminate
twelve (12) months following the Closing Date (the "Expiration Date"); provided,
however, that any claim (i) with respect to a breach of a representation or
warranty relating to title to Skelaxin Intellectual Property, the Sonata
Copyrights or the Skelaxin Product Registrations shall not expire until three
(3) years following the Closing Date and (ii) based upon a breach of a covenant
or an agreement contained in this Agreement or any Related Agreement to be
performed after the Closing Date shall not expire and shall continue in
perpetuity. So long as an Indemnified Party gives an Indemnification Claim
Notice for such a claim on or before the Expiration Date or the applicable date
set forth in clause (i) or (ii) above, such Indemnified Party shall be entitled
to pursue its rights to indemnification.

         SECTION 11.02. Indemnification. (a) Subject to Sections 11.01 and
11.03, from and after the Closing, the Elan Companies shall jointly and
severally indemnify, reimburse, defend and hold harmless the Acquiror Parent and
the Acquirors, each of their Affiliates and their respective officers,
directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and
all costs, losses, damages, including natural resource damages, fines,
penalties, judgments, lawsuits, deficiencies, claims and expenses (including
reasonable fees and disbursements of attorneys and other professionals,
including third-party consultants and, to the extent allowable at Law, medical
monitoring costs and expenses) of every kind and nature (collectively,
"Damages") incurred in connection with, arising out of, resulting from or
incident to (i) any breach of a representation, warranty, covenant or agreement
of an Elan Company made in this Agreement or the Related Agreements or (ii) any
Excluded Liabilities.

                                      -71-
<PAGE>

         (b) Subject to Sections 11.01 and 11.03, from and after the Closing,
the Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless
each Elan Company, its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors,
employees, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and all Damages
incurred in connection with, arising out of, resulting from or incident to (i)
any breach of a representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of the Acquiror
Parent and the Acquirors made in this Agreement or the Related Agreements or
(ii) any Assumed Liabilities (except for any reimbursements actually paid by the
Acquirors to any Elan Company or applicable Subsidiary pursuant to Section
3.01(v)).

         (c) The indemnified party shall give the indemnifying party prompt
written notice (an "Indemnification Claim Notice") of any Damages or discovery
of fact upon which such indemnified party intends to base a request for
indemnification under Section 11.02(a) or Section 11.02(b). Failure to give any
such Indemnification Claim Notice shall not constitute a waiver of any right to
indemnification or reduce in any way the indemnification available hereunder,
except to the extent such failure to notify directly increases the amount to be
indemnified hereunder. Each Indemnification Claim Notice must contain a
description of the claim and the nature and amount of such Damages (to the
extent that the nature and amount of such Damages are known at such time). The
indemnified party shall furnish promptly to the indemnifying party copies of all
papers and official documents received in respect of any Damages. All
indemnification claims in respect of a party, its Affiliates or their respective
directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, the "Indemnitees" and
each an "Indemnitee") shall be made solely by such party to this Agreement (the
"Indemnified Party").

         (d) The obligations of an indemnifying party under this Section 11.02
with respect to Damages arising from claims of any third party that are subject
to indemnification as provided for in Section 11.02(a) or Section 11.02(b) (a
"Third Party Claim") shall be governed by and be contingent upon the following
additional terms and conditions:

         (i) The indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in the
     defense thereof and, if it so chooses and acknowledges its obligation to
     fully indemnify the indemnified party therefor in accordance with this
     Agreement, to assume and control the defense thereof with counsel selected
     by the indemnifying party and reasonably acceptable to the indemnified
     party (which acceptance shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
     Should the indemnifying party so elect to assume the defense of a Third
     Party Claim, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to the indemnified
     party for legal expenses subsequently incurred by the indemnified party in
     connection with the defense thereof; provided, however, that in the event
     that a conflict of interest arises between the indemnifying party and its
     Indemnified Party such that such legal counsel cannot represent both the
     indemnifying party and the Indemnified Party, the Indemnitee may retain its
     own legal counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party and the
     indemnifying party and its counsel shall cooperate with the Indemnified
     Party and its counsel, as may be reasonably requested. If the indemnifying
     party assumes such defense, the indemnified party shall have the right to
     participate in the defense thereof and to employ at its own expense counsel
     not reasonably objected to by the

                                      -72-
<PAGE>

     indemnifying party separate from the counsel employed by the indemnifying
     party, it being understood that the indemnifying party shall control such
     defense, subject to the remaining terms of this Section 11.02(d). The
     indemnifying party shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of
     one primary counsel, and to the extent reasonably required in connection
     with such Third Party Claim, one or more local counsel, and such other
     counsel as may be reasonably required due to a conflict among indemnified
     parties, in each case employed by the indemnified party for any period
     during which the indemnifying party has not assumed the defense thereof. In
     the event the indemnifying party assumes the defense of a Third Party
     Claim, the Indemnified Party shall immediately deliver to the indemnifying
     party all original notices and documents (including court papers) received
     by any Indemnitee in connection with the Third Party Claim. Except as set
     forth above, should the indemnifying party assume the defense of a Third
     Party Claim, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to the Indemnified
     Party or any other Indemnitee for any legal expenses subsequently incurred
     by such Indemnified Party or other Indemnitee in connection with the
     analysis, defense or settlement of the Third Party Claim.

         (ii) With respect to any Damages relating solely to the payment of
     money damages in connection with a Third Party Claim and that will not
     result in the Indemnitee's or the Indemnified Party's becoming subject to
     injunctive or other relief or otherwise adversely affect the business or
     reputation of the Indemnitee or the Indemnified Party in any manner, and as
     to which the indemnifying party shall have acknowledged in writing the
     obligation to indemnify the Indemnitee hereunder, the indemnifying party
     shall have the sole right to consent to the entry of any judgment, enter
     into any settlement or otherwise dispose of such Damages, on such terms as
     the indemnifying party, in its sole discretion, shall deem appropriate;
     provided, however, that, as a result of or in connection with any such
     settlement each Indemnitee or Indemnified Party shall receive a full
     release with respect to such claim. With respect to all other Damages in
     connection with Third Party Claims or where the indemnified party
     reasonably determines, after consulting its outside counsel, that such
     Damages cannot be separated from any claim for money damages, the
     indemnifying party shall not be entitled to assume the defense of any such
     Third Party Claim and shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses
     of one primary counsel, and to the extent reasonably required in connection
     with such Third Party Claim, one or more local counsel, and such other
     counsel as may be reasonably required due to a conflict among indemnified
     parties, incurred by the indemnified party in defending such Third Party
     Claim. In any such case, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to be
     consulted about (but not control) the defense of, and receive copies of all
     pleadings and other material papers in connection with, any such claim or
     litigation. If such other Damages can be so separated from that for money
     damages, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to assume the defense of
     the portion relating to money damages in accordance with this Section
     11.02(d). The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement or
     other disposition of Damages by an Indemnitee or Indemnified Party that is
     reached without the prior written consent of the indemnifying party (which
     consent shall not be

                                      -73-
<PAGE>

     unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned). Regardless of whether the
     indemnifying party chooses to defend or prosecute any Third Party Claim, no
     Indemnitee or Indemnified Party shall admit any Liability with respect to,
     or settle, compromise or discharge, any Third Party Claim without the prior
     written consent of the indemnifying party (which consent shall not be
     unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned).

         (iii) Regardless of whether the indemnifying party chooses to defend or
     prosecute any Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party and each
     indemnifying party shall, and shall cause each other Indemnitee or
     Affiliate of any such indemnifying party, as applicable, to, cooperate in
     the defense or prosecution thereof and shall furnish such records,
     information and testimony, provide such witnesses and attend such
     conferences, discovery proceedings, hearings, trials and appeals as may be
     reasonably requested in connection therewith. Such cooperation shall
     include access during normal business hours afforded to the indemnifying
     party or Indemnified Party, as applicable, to, and reasonable retention by
     each such Person of, records and information that are reasonably relevant
     to such Third Party Claim, and making each such Person and other employees
     and agents available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional
     information and explanation of any material provided hereunder, and the
     indemnifying party shall reimburse each such Person for all its reasonable
     out-of-pocket expenses in connection therewith.

         (e) In addition, and without giving effect to the provisions of
Sections 11.01 and 11.03, the Elan Companies shall jointly and severally, and
fully and promptly, indemnify, reimburse, defend and hold harmless the King
Companies or their Affiliates, each of their respective officers, directors,
employees, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and all Damages
incurred in connection with, arising out of, resulting from or incident to any
of the King Companies or their Affiliates being found by a court, tribunal or
arbitrator to be a necessary party in an action, lawsuit, arbitration or other
legal proceeding commenced in accordance with subparagraph 2.2(a) of the Pharma
Marketing Settlement Agreement.

         (f) Any claim by the Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors or their
Affiliates or any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents
for indemnification shall not be adversely affected by any investigation by or
opportunity to investigate afforded to the Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors,
nor shall such a claim be adversely affected by the Acquiror Parent's and the
Acquirors' Knowledge on or before the Closing Date of any breach of the type
specified in this Section 11.02 or of any state of facts that may give rise to
such a breach. The waiver of any condition based on the accuracy of any
representation or warranty, or on the performance of or compliance with any
covenant or obligation, will not adversely affect the right to indemnification,
payment of Damages or other remedy based on such representations, warranties,
covenants or obligations.

                                      -74-

         SECTION 11.03. Limitations. (a) In no event shall the Elan Companies or
the Acquiror Parent or the Acquirors be liable for any Damages pursuant to a
claim based upon a representation or warranty or, if the Closing occurs, a
covenant or agreement to be performed at or prior to the Closing and pursuant to
Section 11.02(a)(i) or 11.02(b)(i), as applicable, unless and until (i) the
individual claim giving rise to any Damages exceeds $100,000, in which case the
Elan Companies or the Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors, as applicable, shall be
liable for all Damages arising from such claim, (ii) the aggregate amount of all
such Damages exceeds $5,000,000, in which case the Elan Companies or the
Acquiror Parent and the Acquirors, as applicable, shall be liable for all such
Damages only in excess of such amount, and then (iii) not for any amount in
excess of $50,000,000 for all claims made under such Section 11.02(a)(i) or
11.02(b)(i), as applicable, in the aggregate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the
provisions of this Section 11.03(a) shall not be applicable to any breach of any
representation or warranty by any party attributable to such party's fraud or
willful misrepresentation contained therein.

         (b) The amount of any Damages recoverable by a party under Section
11.02 shall be (i) reduced by (x) the amount of any actual Tax Benefits realized
by the Indemnified Party that result from the Liability that gave rise to such
indemnity and (y) the amount of any insurance proceeds paid to the indemnified
party relating to such claim and (ii) if the Tax Benefits are less than zero,
increased by the amount of any actual net Tax cost (i.e., the excess of the Tax
increases over the Tax savings actually realized by the Indemnified Party)
incurred by the Indemnified Party that results from the receipt of indemnity
payments hereunder (grossed up for income Taxes on the amount of the net Tax
cost).

         (c) For purposes of any right to indemnification hereunder, the
representations and warranties of the Elan Companies, the King Companies and
their respective Subsidiaries shall be deemed not qualified by any references
therein to materiality generally or to whether or not any breach would result in
a Material Adverse Effect or an Acquiror Material Adverse Effect.

         (d) THE INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HERETO SHALL NOT
EXTEND TO SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUSINESS
INTERRUPTION OR LOST PROFITS, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.

                                   ARTICLE XII

                           TERMINATION AND ABANDONMENT

         SECTION 12.01. Methods of Termination. Prior to the Closing, the
transactions contemplated herein may be terminated and/or abandoned at any time:

         (a) by mutual written agreement of the Elan Companies and the
     Acquirors;

                                      -75-
<PAGE>


         (b) by the Elan Companies if the Closing shall not have occurred by
     July 31, 2003 (the "Termination Date"); provided, however, that the right
     to terminate the Agreement pursuant to this Section 12.01(b) shall not be
     available to the Elan Companies if their failure to perform in all material
     respects any of their obligations under this Agreement or any Related
     Agreement results in the failure of the Closing to occur by such time;

         (c) following (x) the delivery of the Compliance Information to the
     Elan Companies and (y) the Scheduled Shareholder Vote Date, by the
     Acquirors at any time and for any or no reason; provided, however, that, at
     the time of such termination pursuant to this paragraph (c), the King
     Companies deliver to the Elan Companies the Compliance Information;

         (d) by either the Elan Companies or the Acquirors if there shall be in
     effect any Law that prohibits the Closing or if the Closing would violate
     any non-appealable Order;

         (e) by either the Elan Companies or the Acquirors if the other has
     breached any material obligation hereunder that remains uncured for a
     period of 30 days following the delivery of written notice to the breaching
     party, unless such breach is not capable of cure, in which event the
     non-breaching party may terminate immediately;

         (f) by either the Elan Companies or the Acquirors if the Elan
     Shareholder Approval shall not have been obtained at the Elan Shareholder
     Meeting (or any adjournment thereof);

         (g) by the Acquirors if there is any material breach by the Elan
     Companies or their governing bodies of the obligations set forth in Section
     8.18;

         (h) by the Acquirors in the event (i) an Adverse Recommendation Change
     has occurred or (ii) the board of directors of any of the Elan Companies
     fails to publicly reaffirm its recommendation of the transactions
     contemplated by this Agreement, the Related Agreements and the Wyeth/Elan
     Agreements within five (5) Business Days following receipt by such Elan
     Company from any of the Acquirors to provide such reaffirmations;

         (i) by the Elan Companies, within five (5) Business Days after the
     later of (x) June 9, 2003 and (y) ten (10) calendar days prior to the
     Scheduled Shareholder Vote Date if, on or prior to such date, the King
     Companies shall not have delivered to the Elan Companies the Compliance
     Information;

         (j) by the Elan Companies if there shall have occurred any breach of
     any representation or warranty or any covenant of the King Companies that
     the Elan Companies believe in good faith would cause the failure of a
     closing condition set

                                      -76-
<PAGE>

     forth in Article IX (and, if prior to the Scheduled Shareholder Vote Date,
     such breach is incapable of cure prior to the Scheduled Shareholder Vote
     Date);

         (k) by the Acquirors if (i) there shall have occurred any breach of any
     representation or warranty or any covenant of the Elan Companies that the
     King Companies believe in good faith would cause the failure of a closing
     condition set forth in Article X (and, if prior to the Scheduled
     Shareholder Vote Date, such breach is incapable of cure prior to the
     Scheduled Shareholder Vote Date) and (ii) at the time of such termination
     pursuant to this paragraph (k), the King Companies deliver to the Elan
     Companies the Compliance Information; and

         (l) by the Elan Companies, on or prior to May 21, 2003, if the Acquiror
     Parent shall have failed to comply with Section 2 of the Escrow Agreement.

         SECTION 12.02. Procedure upon Termination. In the event of termination
and abandonment under Section 12.01, written Notice thereof shall forthwith be
given to the other party, and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement
shall be terminated and abandoned, without further action by the parties hereto.
If the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are terminated and/or
abandoned as provided herein:

         (a) each party, if requested, will redeliver all documents, work papers
     and other material of the other party and its Affiliates relating to the
     transactions contemplated hereby, whether so obtained before or after the
     execution hereof, to the party furnishing the same; and

         (b) no party hereto and none of their respective directors, officers,
     stockholders, Affiliates or Controlling Persons shall have any further
     Liability or obligation to any other party to this Agreement, except that
     nothing in this Section 12.02 shall prejudice any rights, claims, or causes
     of action that may have accrued hereunder or with respect hereto prior to
     the date of such termination, including for breach of this Agreement
     (whether based upon the termination or otherwise).

         SECTION 12.03. Effect of Certain Terminations. In the event that (a)
this Agreement is terminated by (i) either the Elan Companies or the Acquirors
pursuant to Section 12.01(b), as applicable (but only if a vote to obtain the
Elan Shareholder Approval or the Elan Shareholders Meeting has not been held),
and at or prior to such termination any of the Elan Companies shall have
received a Superior Proposal or an Acquisition Proposal that could reasonably be
expected to lead to a Superior Proposal or any Person has announced an intention
(whether or not conditional and whether or not withdrawn) to make a Superior
Proposal or an Acquisition Proposal that could reasonably be expected to lead to
a Superior Proposal, (ii) the Acquirors pursuant to Section 12.01(e) or Section
12.01(g) or (iii) either the Elan Companies or the Acquirors pursuant to Section
12.01(f) and (b) the Elan Companies or their Affiliates shall have entered into
a definitive agreement regarding a transaction with a third party unaffiliated
with the Acquirors involving a sale of any assets, stock (or other

                                      -77-
<PAGE>

equity or voting interests) or businesses that constitute or represent 50% or
more of the total revenue, operating income, earnings before interest, taxes,
depreciation and amortization or assets of the Businesses (whether alone or
together with other assets of the Elan Companies) within 12 months of the date
of termination of this Agreement, then the Elan Companies shall, as a condition
to the execution of such definitive agreement, pay to the Acquirors or their
designee a fee equal to $31,500,000 (the "Termination Fee"), payable by wire
transfer of immediately available funds in United States dollars. In the event
this Agreement is terminated by the Acquirors pursuant to Section 12.01(h), the
Elan Companies shall pay to the Acquirors or their designee the Termination Fee
payable by wire transfer of immediately available funds in United States dollars
within two (2) Business Days of such termination. As used in this Section 12.03,
the term "Superior Proposal" means any bona fide Acquisition Proposal on terms
that are more favorable to the shareholders of the Elan Parent than the terms of
this Agreement, the Related Agreements, the Wyeth/Elan Agreements and the
Wyeth/King Agreements, taken as a whole. In the event this Agreement is
terminated for any reason (other than pursuant to Section 12.01(f)), the
Original Agreement shall automatically be revived and reinstated immediately
upon such termination as if this amendment and restatement shall not have
occurred and this Agreement shall be void (it being understood that the waiver
by the Acquirors of compliance by the Elan Parties with Section 8.18 of the
Original Agreement shall also automatically be revived and reinstated
immediately upon such termination).

         SECTION 12.04. Specific Performance. The parties acknowledge that the
transactions contemplated hereby are unique and specifically identifiable.
Accordingly, the parties further agree and stipulate that, if the Closing does
not occur because of the willful failure of the Elan Companies, on the one hand,
or the Acquirors, on the other hand, to perform their respective obligations
hereunder, (a) monetary damages and any other remedy at law will not be
adequate, (b) the non-defaulting party shall be entitled to specific performance
as the remedy for such breach, (c) each party agrees to waive any objection to
the remedy of specific performance, (d) each party agrees that the granting of
specific performance by any court will not be deemed to be harsh or oppressive
to the party who is ordered specifically to perform its obligations under this
Agreement and (e) in connection with any action for specific performance, the
prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys' fees and other costs
of prosecuting or defending such action. The right to seek specific performance
hereunder shall not preclude any party to seek any other remedy at law or in
equity.

         SECTION 12.05. Settled Claims. Each of the parties hereto agrees that
(a) no claims, causes of action or theories of relief (i) the same as those
claims, causes of action or theories of relief alleged or asserted by any of the
King Companies in their Answer and Counterclaims dated April 16, 2003 and their
responses asserted in their Responses and Objections of Defendants to
Plaintiffs' First Set of Interrogatories dated May 1, 2003 or (ii) otherwise
based on the Specified Facts, and (b) no facts (the "Specified Facts") out of
which any of the claims, causes of action, theories of relief or responses set
forth in clause (a)(i) above arose, including, without limitation, the
investigation by the Federal Trade Commission

                                      -78-
<PAGE>

referred to in its letters dated March 13, 2003 and May 7, 2003 (but only to the
extent the King Companies have Knowledge of the facts and circumstances
underlying the initiation of such investigation), "Study 105", and all claims
arising out of any actions taken by the Elan Companies relating to their
relationship with United Research Laboratories, Inc./Mutual Pharmaceutical
Company, Inc., shall, directly or indirectly, constitute, or form the basis for,
a breach by any of the Elan Companies of any representation and warranty or
covenant set forth in this Agreement or a failure of any condition set forth in
Article IX or X of this Agreement.

be effective unless set forth in a written instrument duly executed by or on

any of its rights, benefits or obligations hereunder, by operation of Law or
otherwise, (a) to any of its Affiliates, provided such indemnified party
continues to be responsible for all of its obligations hereunder, or (b) to a
Person that (i) purchases all or substantially all of the assets being conveyed
hereunder or (ii) merges with the Acquiror Parent, an Acquiror or the
indemnified party or (c) to the lenders of the Acquiror Parent or the Acquirors

the rights or obligations of any party hereto under this Agreement will not be
materially and adversely affected thereby, (i) such provision will be fully
severable, (ii) this Agreement will be construed and enforced as if such
illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof,
(iii) the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and
effect and will not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable
provision or by its severance herefrom, and (iv) in lieu of such illegal,
invalid or unenforceable provision, there will be added automatically as a part
of this Agreement a legal, valid and enforceable provision as similar to the
terms of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible and
reasonably acceptable to the parties herein.
