Amylin Pharmaceuticals Comments on Shareholder 13-D Filing

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN) confirmed today that it has reviewed an amended 13-D filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission from Amylin shareholder Icahn Capital LP and affiliated funds announcing their intent to nominate a slate of five directors to stand for election at the Company's 2009 annual meeting. Amylin has not yet received the required notice with respect to this action.

Amylin's Corporate Governance Committee is engaged in a process to recommend a slate for election at the Company's annual meeting. It is reviewing potential nominees suggested by shareholders as part of that process, including two individuals previously discussed with representatives of the Icahn funds. Once the process has been completed, Amylin's Board of Directors will formally recommend a slate of nominees that it believes will act in the best interest of all shareholders.
