Three Independent Proxy Advisory Firms Support Stockholder Nominees in Amylin Proxy Fight
Date:5/20/2009

NEW YORK, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl C. Icahn announced today that three influential independent proxy voting advisory services, RiskMetrics Group, Glass Lewis & Co and PROXY Governance, Inc., have recommended that stockholders of Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN) support stockholder nominees for election to the Board of Directors of Amylin's at the 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

  • RiskMetrics Group has recommended that Amylin stockholders vote FOR the election of our nominee, Dr. Alexander J. Denner and FOR the election of Eastbourne nominees, Dr. Kathleen Behrens and Charles Fleischman.
  • Glass Lewis & Co has recommended that Amylin stockholders vote FOR the election of our nominee Dr. Alexander J. Denner and Eastbourne nominees, Dr. Kathleen Behrens and Jay Sherwood.
  • PROXY Governance, Inc. has recommended Amylin stockholders vote FOR the election of our nominees, Dr. Alexander J. Denner and Dr. Thomas Deuel and Eastbourne nominees, Dr. Kathleen Behrens, Charles Fleischman and Jay Sherwood.

In order to follow any of the above recommendations, which were made by three leading independent proxy voting advisory services, stockholders CANNOT use the blue proxy card since the names of the nominees of Icahn and Eastbourne cannot be written in. To reiterate, stockholders should NOT vote the blue proxy card because the blue proxy card will NOT allow stockholders, among other things, to vote for either of our nominees (Dr. Alexander J. Denner and Dr. Thomas Deuel).

We urge stockholders to use our GOLD proxy card to elect Dr. Alexander J. Denner and Dr. Thomas Deuel. The GOLD proxy card will allow stockholders to vote for Dr. Alexander J. Denner and Dr. Thomas Deuel and will have the effect of voting for the Eastbourne nominees as well as the seven management nominees described thereon. If you wish to withhold authority for any of our nominees or any of the nominees of Eastbourne or any of the seven management nominees you may mark the "for all except" box and write the name of the nominees you do not support.

Stockholders are reminded that they CANNOT vote the blue proxy card to vote for any of our nominees or any of the nominees of Eastbourne and are urged to support our nominees on our GOLD proxy card.

If you have any questions about voting your shares, please call Edward McCarthy or Richard Grubaugh of D.F. King & Co., Inc at (212) 269-5550.

SECURITY HOLDERS ARE ADVISED TO READ THE DEFINITIVE PROXY STATEMENT AND OTHER DOCUMENTS RELATED TO THE SOLICITATION OF PROXIES BY CARL C. ICAHN, DR. ALEXANDER J. DENNER, DR. THOMAS F.
