Icahn Asks Amylin to Allow Discussions With Eastbourne
Date:4/23/2009

NEW YORK, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl Icahn announced today that he had sent the following letter to James Wilson, Lead Independent Director of Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN).

                                        April 23, 2009

    Mr. James Wilson
    Lead Independent Director
    Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
    9360 Towne Centre Drive
    San Diego, CA  92121

    Dear Jim:

    If you are really serious about settling what you consider a debilitating
    proxy contest, I believe it is mandatory for you to take the necessary
    action to allow Eastbourne and myself to talk without the threat of your
    poison pill and Section 203 preventing these discussions.  It is almost
    absurd that I and Eastbourne, separately, have had to ask you a number of
    times during last week and the week before to get permission to have these
    talks.  As I have said, even in a dictatorship parties that disagree with
    the ruling regime are allowed to talk to each other.  But not at Amylin.

    I sincerely believe that as a result of these discussions and subsequent
    discussions among the three of us, there will be enough common ground to
    resolve the matter.  What exactly are you afraid of?  The alternative is
    for the Company and its stockholders to continue to be distracted because
    of the inexplicable intransigence of the current Board which continues to
    evidence itself in so many ways, e.g. the poison pill, the poison puts,
    and the failure to heed the views of your co-founder, Howard E. Greene,
    Jr., regarding Joseph Cook's board seat.

    I look forward to your prompt response.

                                        Sincerely,

                                        Carl Icahn
