Cephalon Launches Takeover Offer for Australian Biotechnology Company, Arana Therapeutics
Date:2/26/2009

nt portfolios by taking cash for their shares at a time when cash provides certainty and stability," said Kevin Buchi, chief financial officer at Cephalon. "We are better equipped to take Arana's lead compound, ART621, through clinical development and, pending the success of clinical trials, to international markets."

To support its bid, Cephalon has acquired a shareholding in Arana, representing an ownership position of approximately 19.9 percent of the total issued share capital of Arana. The purchase price of the shares was A$1.40 per share. Cephalon has acquired this stake from Arana's two largest shareholders, Start-up Australia Ventures Pty Ltd and Rockwell Securities Limited.

Cephalon's offer will be subject to certain basic conditions (outlined in Appendix A), including a 50.1 percent minimum acceptance condition.

Cephalon is well advanced in the preparation of its Bidder's Statement, and expects the offer will be open for acceptance by mid-March.

Arana is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing next generation antibody based drugs that will improve the lives of patients with inflammatory diseases and cancer. The company's lead compound, ART621, is a new generation tumor necrosis factor (TNF ) alpha blocker in development for patients with inflammatory diseases. Arana has a strong patent portfolio related to anti-TNF alpha antibodies and receives royalties from Abbott Laboratories and Johnson & Johnson, the makers of HUMIRA(R) and REMICADE(R), respectively. Cephalon expects these royalties largely to offset costs of development in the near term. Therefore, Cephalon is making no change to its 2009 adjusted net income guidance.

"Arana would bolster our burgeoning inflammatory disease pipeline as well as our oncology pipeline," said Frank Baldino, Jr., Ph.D., chairman and CEO of Cephalon. "Arana has an established protein engineering technology platform
