Lilly to Acquire ImClone Systems in $6.5 Billion Transaction
Date:10/6/2008

ImClone's state-of-the-art development and commercial manufacturing facility will offer additional capacity for antibodies in development from both companies.

-- Provides important source of growth beginning in period of patent expirations. The acquisition of ImClone will help Lilly meet the challenge posed by patent expirations on several currently marketed products in the middle of the next decade. ERBITUX has significant future growth opportunities, including from potential new indications in first-line head and neck, colorectal and non-small cell lung cancer. Given that three of ImClone's pipeline assets have the potential to be in Phase III testing in 2009, they could also contribute significantly to Lilly's revenue growth during this period, while ImClone's earlier stage assets should help bolster Lilly's late-stage pipeline.

Promising ImClone Pipeline Molecules

-- IMC-1121B is a fully-human monoclonal antibody that targets the VEGF receptor to deprive tumor blood vessels of the nutrients they need for further growth. Phase II studies are underway for metastatic melanoma, renal, liver, ovarian and prostate cancers. Metastatic breast cancer is in Phase III testing, while Phase III testing in gastric cancer may begin in 2009.

-- IMC-A12 is a fully-human monoclonal antibody that targets the insulin- like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R). Phase II testing is underway in breast, prostate, pancreatic, colon, liver and head and neck cancers, as well as sarcoma, with Phase III trials planned in 2009. IMC-A12 has the potential to work with a variety of other targeted agents.

-- IMC-11F8 is a potent, fully human monoclonal antibody that targets the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), the same receptor targeted by ERBITUX. It is currently in Phase II studies for metastatic colorectal cancer with one or more Phase III trials planned in 2009.
