¤189m loss for Allergan

IRISH-BASED subsidiary of Allergan, the producers of Botox, recorded a pre-tax loss of over €189m ($252m) in 2010 as a result of legal settlements.

Rising global demand for Botox resulted last year in Allergan announcing the creation of an additional 200 jobs at its plant at Westport, Co Mayo, and the jobs will now see over 1,000 people employed by Allergan in Ireland.
