Item 2.05.
Costs Associated With Exit or Disposal Activities.

On December 5, 2016, Mylan N.V. (“Mylan” or the “Company”) announced restructuring programs in certain locations representing initial steps in a series of actions that are anticipated to further streamline its operations globally.  Since 2015, the Company has made a number of significant acquisitions, and as part of the holistic, global integration of these acquisitions, the Company is focused on how to best optimize and maximize all of its assets across the organization and across all geographies. As part of this process, the Company anticipates that less than 10 percent of its global workforce may be impacted across all geographies and businesses.
The Company is currently developing the details of the cost reduction initiatives, including workforce actions and other potential restructuring activities beyond the programs already announced.  Further details will be disclosed as initiatives are finalized, including the estimated amount or range of amounts to be incurred and future cash expenditures associated with those initiatives.
