PDL BioPharma Provides Third Quarter 2010 Revenue Guidance of Approximately $86 Million and Update to its Correspondence With Genentech
Date:9/1/2010

d a facsimile letter from Genentech regarding Avastin, Herceptin, Lucentis and Xolair (the Genentech Products) sales in Europe.  In its letter, Genentech asserted that the Genentech Products do not infringe the supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) granted to PDL by various countries in Europe for each of the Genentech Products.  

On August 31, 2010, the Company sent its reply to Genentech, stating that Genentech's assertions are without merit.  In its response, the Company disagreed fundamentally with Genentech's assertions of non-infringement with respect to the Genentech Products and cautioned that, in the 2003 settlement agreement between PDL and Genentech, Genentech had waived its right to challenge the validity of PDL's patent rights, including its SPCs.  PDL has requested a meeting with Genentech to discuss resolving their differences regarding infringement of the Company's SPCs by the Genentech Products.  

On August 27, 2010, the Company filed a complaint in the Second Judicial District of Nevada, Washoe County, to enforce its rights against Genentech under the 2003 settlement agreement and seeking an order from the court declaring that Genentech is obligated to pay royalties to PDL on international sales of the Genentech Products.  The Company has not yet served its complaint on Genentech.

The settlement agreement was entered into as part of a definitive agreement resolving intellectual property disputes between the two companies at that time.  The 2003 settlement agreement limits Genentech's ability to challenge infringement of PDL's patent rights and waives Genentech's right to challenge the validity of PDL's patent rights, including its SPCs.  Certain breaches of the 2003 settlement agreement would subject Genentech to substantial liquidated and other damages.
