Lilly Resolves Investigations of Past Zyprexa Marketing and Promotional Practices
Date:1/15/2009

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced that it has reached resolution with the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (EDPA) and the Office of Consumer Litigation of the Department of Justice regarding the previously-reported government investigation into the company's past U.S. marketing and promotional practices for the antipsychotic medication Zyprexa(R) (olanzapine).

Lilly has been cooperating with the government in its investigation since it began in 2004. As part of the resolution, Lilly has agreed to plead guilty to one misdemeanor violation of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The company will also enter into a settlement agreement resolving the federal government's civil investigation. Even though the company disagrees with and does not admit to the civil allegations, the company has agreed to settle the dispute over these allegations. In addition, the company has agreed to settle civil investigations brought by the State Medicaid Fraud Control Units of the states that have coordinated with the EDPA in its investigation.

"We deeply regret the past actions covered by the misdemeanor plea," said John C. Lechleiter, Ph.D., chairman, president and chief executive officer of Lilly.
