New Presentation of Statement of Operations

In December 2007, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ratified Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) 07-1, "Accounting for Collaborative Arrangements". Onyx has elected to adopt this new accounting guidance as of December 31, 2008, and as a result, the company's Statement of Operations for the year ending December 31, 2008 will be reported under this new presentation. This new presentation changes the classification of amounts included in specific lines in the Statement of Operations, but does not change net income (loss) or net income (loss) per share.

Under this new presentation, the Statement of Operations includes the line item "Revenue from Collaboration Agreement." This line item consists of Onyx's share of the commercial profit generated from the collaboration with Bayer, reimbursement of Onyx's shared marketing costs related to Nexavar and Nexavar royalty revenue. Onyx's 50% share of collaboration research and development expenses is included in the research and development expense line item.

In addition, all prior periods from January 1, 2006 through September 30, 2008 will be reclassified to conform to this new guidance and will be presented in Onyx's Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission prior to the fourth quarter and full year 2008 financial results call on February 23, 2009. For additional information on the structure of the company's new Statement of Operations, please visit the investor section of Onyx's website at http://www.onyx-pharm.com/wt/page/investors.
