Dechra® Pharmaceuticals PLC

("Dechra" or "the Company") 

Payment of US$15 million contingent DermaPet® consideration


The Company announces that, pursuant to the terms of the DermaPet Purchase Acquisition Agreement dated 22 October 2010 (the "Agreement"), a payment in the sum of US$15 million (£9.4 million) has been paid to the vendors.  The payment was triggered by the rolling 12 monthly revenue from the sale of DermaPet products exceeding US$15 million in October 2012.   The achievement of this target, ahead of Company expectations, demonstrates the success of the acquisition.


The payment was made in cash from existing facilities.


In line with the Agreement a further payment of US$5 million will become due if, at any time in the next four years, the rolling 12 monthly revenue exceeds US$20 million.
