Statement re Possible Offer

Warner Chilcott PLC

Craigavon, Northern Ireland/Rockaway, New Jersey, USA          20 September 2004

            Warner Chilcott PLC ('Warner Chilcott' or the 'Company')
          Statement with Respect to Possible Offer for Warner Chilcott

Craigavon, Northern Ireland/Rockaway, New Jersey, USA - 20 September  2004:
Warner Chilcott PLC ('Warner Chilcott') (LSE: WCRX, Nasdaq: WCRX).

The board of Directors has noted the recent speculation in the media regarding
the possibility of an offer for the Company.  The board can confirm that they
have received an approach from a consortium of private equity houses which may
or may not lead to an offer, at an indicative cash price of 800p per share,
being made for the entire issued share capital of Warner Chilcott.

The board, other than Roger Boissonneault, the Chief Executive Officer, who in
view of the nature of the approach is not currently participating in these
deliberations, is considering the appropriate response to this approach.

The board wish to make clear that the approach they have received is preliminary
in nature and is subject to, inter alia, various pre-conditions including
financing and due diligence. There can be no certainty that an offer will
actually be made. Furthermore, there can be no certainty as to the level of any
offer. A further announcement will be made in due course, if appropriate.

with the possible offer and will not be responsible to any other person for
providing the protections afforded to clients of Hoare Govett Limited or for
providing advice in relation to the possible offer.
