Date:1/15/2009

ram is an embedded part of our company's culture. These are not just words to us - we continue to implement a range of programs and policies to help ensure that we operate in a manner consistent with all applicable laws and regulations. These programs apply to all parts of our business, and all of our employees are aware of the imperative for them to be models of compliance and of ethical behavior."

The misdemeanor plea is for the off-label promotion of Zyprexa between September of 1999 and March of 2001. Specifically, the plea states that Lilly promoted Zyprexa in elderly populations as treatment for dementia, including Alzheimer's dementia, although Zyprexa is not approved for such uses. As part of this agreement regarding the criminal investigation, Lilly has agreed to pay $615 million.

Under terms for the resolution of the civil investigations, Lilly has agreed to make payments totaling nearly $800 million. Approximately $438 million will be paid to the federal government and approximately $362 million will be made available for payment to settling states. As previously reported, Lilly took a charge of $1.415 billion, or $1.29 per share, in the third quarter of 2008 in connection with this investigation. The 2008 charge will be sufficient to cover the payments announced today. The company is now finalizing the tax treatment of these payments, and will communicate this impact when the company announces fourth quarter 2008 financial results on January 29, 2009.

Lilly has a comprehensive compliance program that is designed to ensure that the company's global business practices fully comply with all laws and regulations. Lilly's compliance program, which the company is committed to continually improving and enhancing, includes each of the elements of compliance guidelines issued by the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General, for the pharmaceutical industry.
