Johnson & Johnson Completes Acquisition of Cougar Biotechnology
Date:7/10/2009

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., July 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) today announced it has successfully completed its acquisition of Cougar Biotechnology, Inc., a development stage biopharmaceutical company with a specific focus on oncology.

Johnson & Johnson's tender offer for shares of Cougar Biotechnology common stock expired at 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) yesterday with approximately 20,148,930,000 shares tendered, representing approximately 95.9% of Cougar Biotechnology's outstanding common stock. The acquisition was completed yesterday through what is known as a "short-form" merger, without a vote or meeting of Cougar Biotechnology's remaining shareholders.

Cougar Biotechnology currently is conducting two Phase III trials for abiraterone acetate, a late stage, first-in-class compound for the treatment of prostate cancer. The first Phase III trial is testing abiraterone acetate in patients with metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer who have progressed after docetaxel-based chemotherapy has failed. The second Phase III trial is studying abiraterone acetate in patients with metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer who have yet to receive chemotherapy.

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and the disease accounts for 10 percent of cancer-related deaths in the United States.

Cougar Biotechnology now operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson and will work with Ortho Biotech Oncology Research & Development, a unit of Centocor Research & Development, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company.

"With the acquisition of Cougar Biotechnology and its talented team, we have strengthened our position in the global oncology market and our efforts to provide
