Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Strategic Restructuring to Focus Operations on Continuing the Advancement of ANA598
Date:6/4/2009

SAN DIEGO, June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANDS) today announced a strategic restructuring to focus its operations on the development of ANA598, in particular a proposed Phase II study in hepatitis C patients of ANA598 in combination with pegylated interferon-alpha and ribavirin.

"As we complete preparations for the first Phase II study of ANA598 in combination with interferon and ribavirin, we have decided to focus our future investments on this important asset and to take these cost-sparing measures which we expect to ensure our ability to complete the Phase II study with our expected cash resources. The proposed Phase II study is expected to provide important data at the end of this year and in the first two quarters of 2010."

The Company anticipates the reduction in force to generate annual cash expense savings of between approximately $4.0 million and $5.0 million. The Company estimates that it will incur one-time cash charges of approximately $1.1 million in severance costs and $0.2 million in continuation of benefits and outplacement services. The Company will retain the clinical development infrastructure required to conduct the Phase II study of ANA598, key capabilities directed toward pharmaceutical development and next-generation non-n
