Amylin to Advance Key Value-Driving Opportunities in 2011

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN) today outlined its strategic corporate priorities for 2011, highlighting its continued focus on strong fiscal discipline while maximizing the value of the Company's diabetes franchise, notably through advancing the investigational compound BYDUREON™ (exenatide extended-release for injectable suspension) and other value-driving development programs. Daniel M. Bradbury, president and chief executive officer, provided an update on the Company's strategy at the 29th Annual JPMorgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco.

"With evidence mounting daily about the incredible toll of the diabetes epidemic, we continue to work with a great sense of urgency to meet the needs of patients and secure approval for BYDUREON, which we believe is a potential game changer for the way people with type 2 diabetes manage their disease," said Bradbury. "In 2011, we will continue to pursue operating efficiencies within our business that will enable us to invest strategically in BYDUREON and other value-creating opportunities, including late-stage programs in obesity and lipodystrophy."

2011 Corporate Priorities

During his presentation, Bradbury highlighted the key corporate priorities for the year ahead, including:  

  • Maximize the value of Amylin's established diabetes franchise. Expand the use of BYETTA® (exenatide) injection, and develop the value of SYMLIN® (pramlintide acetate) injection;
  • Advance Amylin's metabolic pipeline. Key areas of focus will include:
    • Submit the reply to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the second complete response letter for BYDUREON by the end of 2011;
    • Advance new forms and delivery options for exenatide;
    • Submit the remaining component of the rolling Biologics License Application (BLA) for metreleptin to treat rare forms of lipodystrophy;
    • Advance the obesity program, in partnership with Takeda; and
    • Submit the Investigational New Drug (IND) application and initiate the first clinical study of AC165198, a new fusion peptide, under the Company's collaboration with Biocon;
  • Manage expenses in line with expected revenue. The Company will continue to drive efficiencies to further build operating leverage and preserve cash to invest in high-value opportunities.
