Icahn Confirms Intention to Nominate Three Directors at Biogen
Date:1/28/2008

reholders should share his concern that Biogen may attempt to make an acquisition for the purpose of making it unattractive to, or reducing the number of, future potential buyers. In fact, Mr. Icahn noted that The Times of London reported on Saturday that Biogen may be considering a bid for a European biotech company. Mr. Icahn stressed that he reserved the right to oppose any "toxic" transactions by all available means.

The slate of directors to be nominated by Mr. Icahn and his affiliates consists of Alexander J. Denner whose principal occupation is Managing Director of entities controlled by Mr. Icahn that manage private investment funds, Professor Anne B. Young, who is Julianne Dorn Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and Chief, Neurology Service at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Professor Richard C. Mulligan, who is Mallinckrodt Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, and Director of the Harvard Gene Therapy Initiative.

"We determined to run a slate of three directors to ensure that if the slate were to be elected and Biogen's management failed to act to enhance shareholder value, shareholders would have the opportunity to elect sufficient new directors in 2009 who, together with our slate of 2008 directors, would constitute a majority of the board."
