As part of this process, the Corporate Governance Committee worked closely with a leading executive search firm and considered numerous candidates, including candidates recommended by Icahn Capital LP and affiliated funds ("Icahn") and Black Bear Fund I, L.P., a fund managed by Eastbourne Capital Management, L.L.C.

The result of our detailed review process and the extensive feedback we received is the nomination of a slate of highly qualified individuals. We are confident that our slate of 12 nominees is best positioned to serve the interests of all our shareholders. The two new independent nominees to our Board are Paul N.

Both possess valuable commercial and operational expertise in the biopharmaceutical industry, enhancing the existing strengths of the Board, and both are widely respected leaders who we look forward to having on the Amylin team.

In addition to the new nominees, the company is nominating current directors Adrian Adams, Steven R. Altman, Teresa Beck, Daniel M. Bradbury, Joseph C. Cook, Jr., Karin Eastham, James R.
