All Shareholders Urged to See New Video and Vote Their YELLOW Proxy

TORONTO, June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Concerned Shareholders of Biovail Corporation (NYSE: BVF)(TSX: BVF) said today that a refusal by Biovail CEO William Wells to participate in a debate with Bruce Brydon, Concerned Shareholders' proposed CEO, sends a chilling message to Biovail shareholders.

"To make an informed vote, shareholders need a chance to evaluate each side," said a spokesman for The Concerned Shareholders. "Mr. Wells has limited experience in the pharmaceutical industry, and we believe his refusal to participate in a debate demonstrates is he is afraid to show -- one-on-one -- his lack of knowledge."

Mr. Wells's refusal to debate comes on the heels of an analysis by Glass Lewis & Co. that sharply criticizes the company and recommends a no-vote for all the company's nominees. The report also calls the appointment of Mr. Wells as CEO "inappropriate from a corporate governance standpoint" and suggests that there was an appearance of a conflict of interest in awarding lavish compensation packages to Mr. Wells and his predecessor at a time when the company is struggling financially.

"We believe Mr. Wells has limited knowledge of the industry and inadequate experience to run the company," the spokesman said. "But shareholders deserve to see his level of knowledge first hand -- face to face with Bruce Brydon, who has 30 years experience."
