Amylin Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter Financial Results
Date:10/17/2007

Net product sales increased 28% over third quarter 2006 to $177 million

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN) today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2007. The Company reported total revenue of $190.0 million for the third quarter, including net product sales of $177.4 million. Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 was $39.8 million, or $0.30 per share. At September 30, 2007, the Company held cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of approximately $1.1 billion.

"BYETTA and SYMLIN, our first-in-class diabetes medicines, have been on the market for nearly 30 months and continued to show growth in physician adoption, prescriptions and reported revenue in the third quarter," said Daniel M. Bradbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amylin Pharmaceuticals. "Additionally we continued to advance our pipeline drug candidates and remain on track to report key clinical data later this quarter from our once-weekly exenatide long-acting release program and our integrated neurohormone obesity program."

Quarter ended September 30, 2007

Net product sales of $177.4 million for the third quarter include $161.1 million for BYETTA(R) (exenatide) injection and $16.3 million for SYMLIN(R) (pramlintide acetate) injection. This compares to net product sales of $138.8 million, consisting of $126.4 million for BYETTA and $12.4 million for SYMLIN for the same period in 2006.

Revenues under collaborative agreements were $12.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, compared to $8.2 million for the same period in 2006. The increase reflects higher cost-sharing payments from Lilly to equalize development expenses for BYETTA and exenatide long-acting release (LAR).

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $87.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, compared to $69.0 million for the same period in 2006. The increase reflects higher promotional expenses for BYETTA and SYMLIN, increased expenses associated with the Company's expanded field force, and increased business infrastructure to support the Company's growth.

Research and development expenses increased to $61.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, compared to $53.7 million for the same period in 2006. The increase primarily reflects increased development expenses for exenatide LAR and ongoing costs associated with the advancement of the Company's obesity development programs.

Collaborative profit sharing, which represents Lilly's share of the gross margin for BYETTA, was $75.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, compared to $57.0 million for the same period in 2006.

Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 was $39.8 million, or $0.30 per share, compared to $46.1 million, or $0.36 per share, for the same period in 2006. Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2006 included a $7.9 million non-operating charge related to a make-whole payment associated with the early redemption of convertible senior debt in August 2006.

Third quarter highlights

Highlights of Amylin's third quarter include:

-- Received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of the

SymlinPen(TM) 120 and the SymlinPen(TM) 60 pen-injector devices for

administering SYMLIN(R) (pramlintide acetate) injection. These new

pre-filled pen-injector devices feature simple, fixed dosing to improve

mealtime glucose control.

-- Announced study results showing that with similar glycemic improvement,

one year of exenatide treatment improved indices of beta cell function

compared to insulin glargine, with reduced risk of hypoglycemia, and

weight loss instead of weight gain.

Nine months ended September 30, 2007

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 were $559.0 million. This includes net product sales of $506.7 million, including $459.7 million for BYETTA and $47.0 million for SYMLIN. This compares to net product sales of $323.5 million, consisting of $293.2 million for BYETTA and $30.3 million for SYMLIN for the same period in 2006.

Revenues under collaborative agreements were $52.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, compared to $24.1 million for the same period in 2006. The increase reflects $15 million in milestones associated primarily with the launch of BYETTA in the European Union during the second quarter of 2007 and higher cost-sharing payments to equalize development expenses for BYETTA and exenatide LAR.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $268.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, from $192.4 million for the same period in 2006. The increase reflects higher promotional expenses for BYETTA and SYMLIN, costs associated with the Company's expanded sales force and increased business infrastructure to support the Company's growth.

Research and development expenses increased to $192.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, from $155.9 million for the same period in 2006. The increase primarily reflects costs associated with the development of exenatide LAR and costs associated with the Company's obesity programs.

Collaborative profit sharing was $212.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, compared to $130.4 million for the same period in 2006.

Net loss was $134.2 million, or $1.02 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, compared to $160.4 million, or $1.33 per share, for the same period in 2006.
