Cypress Denies Ramius' Legal Right to Stockholder List Materials
Date:9/21/2010

NEW YORK, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Ramius Value and Opportunity Advisors LLC, a subsidiary of Ramius LLC (collectively, "Ramius"), today announced that Cypress Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYPB) has denied Ramius' legitimate request for a list of the Company's stockholders.  Ramius owns 9.9% of the outstanding shares and has launched a tender offer to purchase all of the shares it does not currently own for $4.25 per share in cash.  Ramius requested the stockholder list materials in accordance with its rights as a stockholder under Delaware law in order to communicate with other stockholders of the Company in connection with its tender offer.

Ramius Partner Managing Director Jeffrey C. Smith, in response to the Company's efforts to block Ramius from communicating with stockholders, stated, "The Company has no legal basis for denying Ramius' right to communicate with Cypress stockholders. We have urged the Board on more than one occasion to refrain from taking any actions to prevent stockholders from deciding the future of the Company. This refusal to comply with our basic request under Delaware law shows that the Company will stop at nothing to obstruct our tender offer from succeeding and is more concerned with entrenching the Board and management than maximizing shareholder value."  

Smith continued, "We have commenced litigation in Delaware to enforce our rights as stockholders and compel the Company to make the stockholder list materials available to Ramius.  We are undeterred in our pursuit of acquiring Cypress and will take all necessary legal steps to ensure that our rights and the rights of all stockholders are protected."

Since the Company has refused to make the stockholder list available, Ramius urges all Cypress stockholders to contact Ramius directly at the numbers listed below or at cypbtender
