Horizon Therapeutics Announces Corporate Relocation to the Chicago Area
Date:7/31/2008

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Therapeutics, Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it will move its corporate headquarters from Palo Alto, Calif. to the Chicago, Ill., area.

"The relocation will help us continue growing, extend our opportunities for partnerships and conduct business in one of the most dynamic markets in the country," said Timothy P. Walbert, president and chief executive officer of Horizon. "Chicago has all the elements to become a major life-science hub, but it's still rivaled by its bi-coastal counterparts. We wanted to relocate here to be an integral part of the market growth as well as leverage the existing market opportunities to grow our business."

The company will begin operations in its new headquarters in early August at the Illinois Science and Technology Park in Skokie, Ill., which formerly housed the Searle and then subsequently Pharmacia and Pfizer research and development offices. Horizon has approximately 50 full-time employees and consultants.

Mr. Walbert, who was recently named president and chief executive officer of Horizon and has approximately 20 years of proven experience launching and commercializing blockbuster drugs in the pain and arthritis fields, is focusing the Company's efforts on meeting the needs of arthritis and pain sufferers, specifically with its investigational compound HZT-501, a novel proprietary formulation of ibuprofen combined with famotidine in a single pill currently in Phase 3 clinical trials. Because approximately 25 percent of NSAID users may develop stomach ulcers, HZT-501 may offer patients effective pain relief with the confidence of GI-protection. Horizon expects to have data from the HZT-501 Phase 3 trials in fourth quarter of this year.
