Amarin Signs Agreement to Acquire Ester Neurosciences
Date:12/5/2007

l Property

Ester's patent estate protects its novel technology platform with both issued patents and pending patent applications. EN101 is protected by an issued composition of matter patent in the United States that runs to 2022, and has patent protection pending in a number of other jurisdictions around the world, including Europe.

Technology Platform

Ester's therapeutic platform is based on novel and proprietary discoveries in the field of acetylcholinesterase ("AChE"), developed by Professor Hermona Soreq of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. AChE is a degrading enzyme of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the imbalance of which plays a central role in a range of currently incurable and highly debilitating neurodegenerative conditions. The basic premise of Ester's therapeutic paradigm is the modulation of the "read-through" isoform of acetylcholinesterase ("AChE-R"), an excess of which plays a fundamental detrimental role in the CNS and inflammatory processes.

Ester's technology platform also exhibits anti-inflammatory effects, including an indirect inhibitory effect on key pro-inflammatory cytokines via modulation of AChE-R, as well as a direct anti-inflammatory effect via modulation of macrophage activity mediated by interaction with the toll-like receptor or TLR signalling pathway.

Ester Integration

Preparations for the integration of Ester and Amarin have already begun. Amarin is not acquiring any facilities or office space in Israel. The management of Ester's programs and research and development activity is being transitioned to Amarin's research and development team in Oxford, England. To facilitate this transition to Amarin, Eli Hazum, Chief Executive Officer of Ester, will act as a consultant to Amarin for a period of at least six months.

Acquisition Consideration

Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Amarin will acquire 100% of the issued share capital of Ester for initial consideration
