DUBLIN, Ireland, December 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPG) announces that the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR) relating to its previously announced tender offer by a wholly owned subsidiary of Shire for all outstanding shares of ViroPharma Incorporated (NASDAQ: VPHM) expired at 11:59 p.m., Eastern U.S. time, on December 10, 2013. The expiration of the HSR waiting period satisfies one of the conditions to the tender offer.

The tender offer is scheduled to expire at 6:00 p.m., Eastern U.S. time, on Thursday, December 26, 2013, unless the tender offer is extended.
