Urges Stockholders to Vote FOR Amylin Director Nominees on the Blue Proxy Card Today

We are confident that our slate of nominees is the right Board to lead Amylin. We are disappointed that RiskMetrics has recommended three dissident nominees to our annually-elected Board. The Company urges shareholders to vote FOR Amylin's highly-qualified Director nominees who have extensive experience in biopharmaceuticals and diabetes, as well as the valuable sales and marketing expertise necessary to most effectively guide Amylin.

Importantly, Amylin's Board and management team have recognized and embraced the need for change, with two new independent Director nominees, Paul N. Clark, former Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Icos Corporation, and Paulo F. Costa, former President and Chief Executive Officer of Novartis U.S. Corporation. Both bring additional commercial and operational expertise in the biopharmaceutical industry, which are key attributes requested by our shareholders.

Over the course of the past six months, Amylin has also taken the necessary steps to effect change in its business strategy and increase long-term shareholder value, including:
