On November 18, 1997, the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("the PTO") duly and legally issued the '792 patent entitled "Substituted Oxazine and Thiazine Oxazolidinone Antimicrobials," based on an application filed by Michael R. Barbachyn, Steven J. Brickner and Douglas K. Hutchinson. That application had been duly and legally assigned to Pharmacia & Upjohn Company. A copy of the '792 patent is attached hereto as Exhibit A. Pharmacia holds an approved New Drug Application on Linezolid tablets, which it sells under the registered name Zyvox®. Zyvox® is approved for the treatment of various microbial infections. The Zyvox® product and its use are covered by one or more claims of the '792 patent. Pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 355(b)(1) and the regulations the FDA promulgated pursuant thereto, the '792 patent is listed in the FDA publication entitled "Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations" (the "Orange Book") for Zyvox®. The Orange Book lists the '792 patent's expiration date as November 18, 2014. Patents associated with Zyvox®, including the '792 patent, have been granted a further period of pediatric exclusivity under section 505(a) of the Federal Food, Drug and The pediatric exclusivity period associated with the '792 patent will expire May By letter dated January 30, 2013 (the "Notice Letter"), Apotex Inc. notified Pharmacia & Upjohn Company that it had filed ANDA No. 20-4260 with the FDA, seeking approval under the FDCA to market and sell its Linezolid Tablets, 600 mg ("Apotex's ANDA Product"), a generic copy of Zyvox®, prior to the expiration of the ‘792 patent. The Notice Letter states that in its ANDA No. 20-4260 Apotex certifies that the '792 patent is invalid, unenforceable and/or will not be infringed by the commercial manufacture, On information and belief, Apotex Corp. participated in, contributed to, aided, abetted, acted in concert with, and/or induced Apotex Inc.'s preparation and/or submission of ANDA 20-4260 and its § 505(j)(2)(A)(vii)(IV) allegations to the FDA.

On information and belief, the acts of Apotex Inc. complained of herein were done at the direction of, with the authorization of, and/or with the cooperation, participation, and assistance of, and at least in part for the benefit of, Apotex Corp. This action is being commenced before the expiration of forty-five days from the date of the receipt of the Notice Letter. CLAIM FOR RELIEF: INFRINGEMENT OF THE '792 PATENT

Apotex’s ANDA Product and its use are covered by one or more claims of the Apotex had knowledge of the '792 patent when it submitted ANDA No. 20-4260 Apotex's submission of ANDA 20-4260 to the FDA, seeking approval to engage in the commercial manufacture, use, offer for sale, and/or sale of Apotex's ANDA Product before the expiration date of the '792 patent is an act of infringement of the ‘792 patent under 35 U.S.C. The manufacture, use, offer for sale, sale, marketing, distribution, and/or importation of Apotex's ANDA Product would infringe one or more claims of the '792 patent literally or under the doctrine of equivalents. On information and belief, the use of Apotex's ANDA Product in accordance with and as directed by Apotex's proposed labeling for that product would infringe one or more claims of the '792 patent literally or under the doctrine of equivalents. On information and belief, Apotex will engage in the manufacture, use, offer for sale, sale, marketing, distribution, and/or importation of Apotex's ANDA product with its proposed labeling immediately and imminently upon approval of ANDA 20-4260. On information and belief Apotex Corp. will be the entity that offers for sale, sells, markets, distributes, and/or imports Apotex's ANDA product. On information and belief, Apotex plans and intends to, and will, actively induce infringement of the '792 patent when ANDA No. 20-4260 is approved by the FDA, and plans and intends to, and will do so immediately and imminently upon such approval.

The foregoing actions by Apotex constitute and/or would constitute infringement of the '792 patent, active inducement of infringement of the '792 patent, and/or contribute to the infringement of the '792 patent by others. Pharmacia will be substantially and irreparably damaged and harmed if Apotex’s infringement is not enjoined. Pharmacia does not have an adequate remedy at law.
