SAN DIEGO, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2007. The Company reported total revenue of $222.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, which includes net product sales of $194.7 million. Net loss was $76.9 million, or $0.57 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2007. Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 includes a full year non-cash expense of approximately $17 million associated with the adoption of an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP). The Company reported total revenue of $781.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2007, which includes net product sales of $701.5 million. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $211.1 million, or $1.59 per share. At December 31, 2007 the Company held cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of approximately $1.1 billion.

"BYETTA and SYMLIN continued to experience growth in physician adoption and prescriptions, generating net product sales of over $700 million. In addition, we announced positive clinical data from our key development programs, including exenatide once weekly, BYETTA monotherapy, and our pramlintide-metreleptin obesity program," said Daniel M. Bradbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amylin Pharmaceuticals. "For 2008, we remain confident in prospects for the continued growth of BYETTA and SYMLIN and we have aggressive development plans for the year. These plans balance investments across opportunities in the near, mid and long-term and include the completion of our Ohio manufacturing facility, a strong clinical program to expand and enhance the profile of exenatide once weekly, the advancement of our obesity program, and continued investments in discovery research."

Quarter ended December 31, 2007

Net product sales of $194.7 million for the quarter include sales of $176.3 million for BYETTA(R) (exenatide) injection and $18.4 million for SYMLIN(R) (pramlintide acetate) injection. This compares to net product sales of $150.6 million, consisting of $137.0 million for BYETTA and $13.6 million for SYMLIN for the same period in 2006.

Revenue under collaborative agreements was $27.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, compared to $12.8 million for the same period in 2006. The increase reflects higher cost-sharing payments from Lilly and Company to equalize development expenses for BYETTA and exenatide once weekly.

The Company's results for quarter ended December 31, 2007 includes $17 million in full year non-cash expense associated with the adoption of an ESOP of which $10 million is included in selling, general and administrative expenses and $7 million is included in research and development expenses. The adoption of the ESOP represents a change in the composition of the Company's equity compensation.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $122.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, compared to $89.6 million for the same period in 2006. The increase primarily reflects increased promotional expenses for BYETTA and SYMLIN and increased business infrastructure to support the Company's growth.

Research and development expenses increased to $83.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, compared to $66.2 million for the same period in 2006. The increase primarily reflects costs associated with the development of exenatide once weekly, including manufacturing scale-up.

Collaborative profit sharing, which represents Lilly's share of the gross margin for BYETTA, was $78.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, compared to $63.8 million for the same period in 2006.

Net loss was $76.9 million, or $0.57 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, compared to a net loss of $58.4 million, or $0.45 per share, for the same period in 2006.

Fourth quarter highlights

Highlights of Amylin's fourth quarter include the following:

-- Positive results from a 24-week study of monotherapy, or stand alone,

BYETTA in drug nave patients with type 2 diabetes. The Company plans

for a regulatory submission for a monotherapy indication to the U.S.

Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, in the first half of 2008.

-- Positive results from a 30-week comparator study of exenatide once

weekly injection and BYETTA taken twice daily in patients with type 2

diabetes. The Company anticipates a regulatory submission to the FDA by

the end of the first half of 2009.

-- Positive results from a 24-week proof-of-concept study with the

combination treatment of pramlintide, an analog of human amylin, and

metreleptin, an analog of human leptin in overweight or obese subjects,

validating the Company's novel integrated neurohormonal treatment of

obesity (INTO) strategy. The Company plans for additional clinical

development in 2008, including the initiation of a Phase 2B study.
