At June 30, 2007 net deferred tax liabilities of $1,163.9 million were recognized (December 31, 2006: $27.2 million). The increase in net deferred tax liabilities at June 30, 2007 as compared to December 31, 2006 has primarily resulted from the recognition of net deferred tax liabilities totaling $1,150.7 million following the acquisition of New River.

(a) In-process research and development ("IPR&D")
IPR&D totaling $1,943.3 million in respect of VYVANSE indicated for non-pediatric patients in the US and VYVANSE in the rest of the world ("RoW") has been capitalized as an intangible asset under IFRS. As required under US GAAP the value ascribed to these IPR&D assets ($1,896.0 million) has been charged to research and development expense as of the acquisition date.
(b) Effective settlement of pre-existing relationship with New River

As a result of the existence of this collaboration agreement, Shire's acquisition of New River has been accounted for as a multiple element transaction under both IFRS and US GAAP, with one element being the business combination and the other element being the effective settlement of the pre-existing relationship.
