ALLEGAN, Mich., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Perrigo Company (Nasdaq: PRGO; TASE: PRGO) today announced results for its first quarter ended September 29, 2012.

Perrigo's Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa commented, "We have started fiscal 2013 well, delivering record first quarter revenue and adjusted earnings. We also delivered all-time record adjusted gross and operating margins. Store brand OTC market share continues to grow. Our Consumer Healthcare segment's revenue grew 9.4% from a record first quarter last year. Our Rx segment continued its excellent performance, which was driven by the acquisition of Paddock Labs, new product sales and strong organic Rx results, combined with our continued focus on quality and R&D. Clearly we are focused on the results from our Nutritionals segment and the team has an action plan in place for the rest of the year. We believe our value proposition continues to resonate well with consumers."
