Mr. Orwin has served as the chief executive officer of Affymax since 2011, after joining the company in 2010 as its chief operating officer.  Previously, he held leadership roles in marketing, sales, and operations for major pharmaceutical companies including Genentech, Johnson & Johnson, Alza Pharmaceuticals, Rhone-Poulenc Rorer, and Schering-Plough Corporation.

Mr. Orwin brings a track record of substantial accomplishment in the pharmaceutical industry to Array's board of directors. Over his career, Mr. Orwin has built successful businesses and commercialized a range of blockbuster products.  Most recently, he led the approval and launch of Omontys®, a hematology product for the treatment of anemia in chronic kidney disease.  Prior to joining Affymax, he led Genentech's BioOncology business unit and grew a portfolio of cancer-fighting products including Avastin®, Rituxan®, Herceptin® and Tarceva® to over $7 billion in U.S. sales.  Earlier in his career, he was responsible for the successful launch of Taxotere®, exceeding budget and forecast expectations.

Ron Squarer, chief executive officer of Array, noted, "At a time when Array is moving towards commercialization of our pipeline, John has the perfect background to complement the expertise of our board of directors.  His track record of building successful sales and marketing teams in oncology for major pharma companies, along with building brands that are respected by physicians and patients alike, will be invaluable as we focus our efforts in oncology and continue our evolution to late-stage development and commercialization."

John Orwin added, "I have admired Array and the way it has built and advanced an impressive development pipeline.  I'm honored to join the company's board at such an important time in its history, when it is poised to transition to late-stage development, and ultimately commercialization of its drugs. I look forward to working with Ron and my fellow board members to make this happen."

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements about the potential for the results of ongoing preclinical and clinical trials to support regulatory approval or the marketing success of drug candidates, our future plans to progress and develop our proprietary programs and the plans of our collaborators to progress and develop programs we have licensed to them, and our plans to build a late-stage development company. These statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed in our most recent annual report filed on Form 10-K, in our quarterly reports filed on Form 10-Q, and in other reports filed by Array with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Because these statements reflect our current expectations concerning future events, our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors.
