Date:1/12/2009

CINCINNATI, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kendle (Nasdaq: KNDL) a leading, global full-service clinical research organization, today announced revised financial expectations for the full year 2008.

The Company now expects full year 2008 net service revenues to be in the range of $475 million to $480 million, down from the previous range of $485 million to $500 million, primarily due to the strengthening U.S. dollar. Earnings per share for 2008 are expected to be in the range of $2.12 to $2.20 per diluted share compared to previous guidance of $2.10 to $2.25.

Amidst challenges across the industry resulting in a softening RFP flow, the Company expects to report a fourth quarter net book-to-bill ratio of approximately 1.3 to 1.

Kendle is scheduled to provide its next financial update for the fourth quarter and full year ended Dec. 31, 2008 on Feb. 25, 2009, at 8:30 a.m. (EST).
