 ALLERGAN ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT OF DAVE BRUNS
 IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Allergan Inc. (NYSE: AGN) announced today the retirement of David B. Bruns, corporate vice president and president of Allergan Europe, effective Feb. 29, 1992. Bruns, 62, will at the same time retire from his position on Allergan's board of directors -- a responsibility he has held since May 1989.
 Dave Bruns joined Allergan in 1979 as senior vice president and chief financial officer and treasurer. He was appointed president of Allergan International in 1982. Earlier this year, when Allergan realigned its worldwide infrastructure into four regional operations, Bruns accepted his current position and in that capacity facilitated establishment of the company's European region and its United Kingdom-based headquarters.
 "Dave's selection as president of Allergan Europe was a pivotal choice made at a crucial time," comments Allergan Chief Operating Officer William C. Shepherd. "Member countries of the unified European Community represent the world's largest healthcare market. Although Allergan has a presence in virtually all European nations, issues of unification -- and establishing a regional office to capably manage them -- presented significant challenges. With eight years of international management experience behind him, Dave was a natural for the task. Now, one year later, the region is established, the office is in place, and the organization is structured to make the most of the years ahead."
 Allergan Europe -- as well as the company's three other geographic regions -- will report, as planned, to Richard M. Haugen as of Jan. 1, 1991.
 Allergan Inc., headquartered in Irvine, is a global provider of specialty therapeutic products, and is expanding beyond skin care and its leadership position in eye care.
