The Federal Trade Commission ("Commission"), having initiated an investigation of the proposed merger between Respondent Pfizer Inc.

The Commission having thereafter considered the matter and having determined that it had reason to believe that Respondents have violated the said Acts, and that a Complaint should issue stating its charges in that respect, and having determined to accept the executed Consent Agreement and to place such Consent Agreement on the public record for a period of thirty (30) days for the receipt and consideration of public comments, now in further conformity with the procedure described in Commission Rule 2.34, 16 C.F.R. 2.34, the Commission hereby issues its Complaint, makes the following jurisdictional findings and issues this Order to Maintain Assets:

APPENDIX A

TO THE ORDER TO MAINTAIN ASSETS

NOTICE OF DIVESTITURE AND REQUIREMENT FOR CONFIDENTIALITY

On March 24, 2003, Pfizer Inc. ("Pfizer") and Pharmacia Corporation ("Pharmacia"), hereinafter referred to collectively as "Respondents," entered into an Agreement Containing Consent Orders ("Consent Agreement") with the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") relating to the divestiture of certain assets. That Consent Agreement includes two orders: The Decision and Order and the Order to Maintain Assets.

The Decision and Order requires the divestiture of assets relating to the several marketed and pipeline Pfizer products including Darifenacin, femhrt, Pfizer's cow mastitis product line, Pfizer's Halls product line and Bonine. These assets are hereinafter referred to as the "Pfizer Divested Assets." The Decision and Order also requires the divestiture of assets relating to several marketed and pipeline Pharmacia products including Intranasal Apomorphine, the D2 Agonist 774 development compound, Deramaxx and Cortaid. These assets are hereinafter referred to as the "Pharmacia Divested Assets." Both the Decision and Order and the Order to Maintain Assets require Respondents to commit that no Confidential Business Information relating to the Pfizer Divested Assets or the Pharmacia Divested Assets will be disclosed to or used by any employee of the combined entity formed by the merger of Pfizer and Pharmacia ("Combined Entity"). In particular, this is to protect such information from being used in any way for the research, development, sale or manufacture of any product that competes or may compete with any product that is marketed by the Respondents after the proposed merger. The Decision and Order also requires the complete divestiture of ALL documents (including electronically stored material) that contain Confidential Business Information related to the Pfizer Divested Assets and Pharmacia Divested Assets. Accordingly, no employee of the Combined Entity may maintain copies of documents containing such information.

Under the Decision and Order, the Respondents are required to divest the Pfizer Divested Assets and Pharmacia Divested Assets to an acquirer that must be approved by the FTC. Companies have been have been proposed to the FTC as the acquirers for these assets. Until a complete divestiture of all of the Pfizer Divested Assets and Pharmacia Divested Assets occurs, the requirements of the second order - the Order to Maintain Assets - are in place to insure the continued marketability, viability and competitive vigor of the Pfizer Divested Assets and Pharmacia Divested Assets. This includes preserving the work force that performs functions related to the Pfizer Divested Assets and Pharmacia Divested Assets. You are receiving this notice because you are either (i) an employee with work responsibilities related to the Pfizer Divested Assets, (ii) an employee with work responsibilities related to the Pharmacia Divested Assets, (iii) an employee for Pfizer, Pharmacia or the Combined Entity who has work responsibilities in some way related to products that compete or may compete with the Pfizer Divested Assets or Pharmacia Divested Assets, or (iv) an employee or former employee of Pharmacia or Pfizer who might have Confidential Business Information in your possession related to the Pfizer Divested Assets or Pharmacia Divested Assets.

All Confidential Business Information related to Pfizer Divested Assets and Pharmacia Divested Assets must be retained and maintained by the persons involved in the operation of that business on a confidential basis, and such persons must not provide, discuss, exchange, circulate, or otherwise disclose any such information to or with any other person whose employment involves responsibilities unrelated to the Pfizer Divested Assets or Pharmacia Divested Assets (such as persons with job responsibilities related to Pfizer or Pharmacia products that compete or may compete with the Pfizer Divested Assets or Pharmacia Divested Assets). In addition, any person who possesses such Confidential Business Information related to the Pharmacia Divested Assets or Pfizer Divested Assets and who becomes involved in the Combined Entity's business related to any product that competes or may compete with the Pfizer Divested Assets or Pharmacia Divested Assets must not provide, discuss, exchange, circulate, or otherwise disclose any such information to or with any other person whose employment relates to such businesses. Finally, any Pfizer, Pharmacia or former Pfizer or Pharmacia employee with documents that contain information that he or she believes might be considered Confidential Business Information related to the Pharmacia Divested Assets or Pfizer Divested Assets and who has not received specific instructions as to how the documents in his or her possession should be disposed of should contact the contact person identified at the end of this notice.

Furthermore, the Decision and Order places restrictions upon the functions that management level employees of Pfizer or Pharmacia can perform for the Combined Entity for one (1) year from the closing of the Pfizer/Pharmacia transaction: (i) any employee of Pfizer who was involved in the marketing of Darifenacin may not perform a similar function for the Combined Entity relating to Detrol, (ii) any employee of Pfizer who was involved in the marketing of femhrt may not perform a similar function for the Combined Entity relating to Activella, (iii) any employee of Pfizer who was involved in the marketing of Pfizer's Cow Mastitis products may not perform a similar function for the Combined Entity relating to Cow Mastitis products, (iv) any employee of Pfizer who was involved in the marketing of Bonine may not perform a similar function for the Combined Entity relating to Dramamine, and (v) any employee of Pharmacia who was involved in the marketing of Cortaid may not perform a similar function for the Combined Entity relating to Cortizone. In addition, any employee involved in sales efforts for femhrt may not perform a similar function for the Combined Entity regarding Activella for six (6) months from the closing of the Pfizer/Pharmacia transaction.

Any violation of the Decision and Order, or the Order to Maintain Assets may subject Pfizer, Pharmacia, or the Combined Entity to civil penalties and other relief as provided by law.
