aTech said, "Despite a softening global economy, the global trend in R&D outsourcing continues to fuel our business, enabling us to more than double our revenue from the second quarter 2007. We remain agile to meet and anticipate customer needs, expanding and evolving our services to enable integrated total solutions to a broader pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device customer base."

"During this quarter, WuXi continued to build on its strong base in lab services business while capturing growth from its research manufacturing business in China. In addition, our efforts to build a world class manufacturing operation are paying off, with this segment demonstrating 400% growth from second quarter one year ago," said Dr. Li. "We are confident that the thesis underlying our acquisition of AppTec remains intact as we are committed to our long-term vision of being the partner of choice to our customers, offering services along the continuum of drug discovery and product development to help our partners improve the success of discovery and shorten the time of development." Finally, Dr. Li shared that "We recently added a number of seasoned senior executives to complement the management team who will help further drive long-term growth on multiple fronts."

Benson Tsang, Chief Financial Officer of WuXi PharmaTech continued, "Underlying our revenue growth in the second quarter 2008 is the continued success of our core laboratory services. The lab services business maintains a 50% non-GAAP gross margin, which remains in line with past performance despite macro-economic challenges." Mr. Tsang also reported, "Our GAAP net income this quarter reflected $5.9 million non-cash expenses related to the amortization of acquired intangible assets from the AppTec acquisition."

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this release contain "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, among others, our anticipated net revenues for 2008; the favorable global trend in R&D outsourcing; our expected ability to continue to grow our revenues, despite a softening global economy, by meeting customer needs, expanding and evolving our services to serve as an integrated total solutions to broadening customer base and helping our partners improve the success of drug discovery and shorten the time of development; potential near-term lumpiness in our biologics business due to smaller clients issues with their cell line performance and funding pressures potentially offset by large pharmaceutical customer interest in biologics testing and manufacturing services in China--a capability we are moving to provide; and the ability of recent management additions to help drive company growth.

These forward-looking statements are not historical facts but instead represent only our belief regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition and other circumstances may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these forward-looking statements. For example, a softening global economy may adversely impact our business and R&D outsourcing trends; our smaller biologics clients may continue to face cell line performance and funding difficulties for longer than anticipated. We may be unable to successfully expand our capabilities to meet client needs (including offering biologics testing and manufacturing in China). In addition other factors that could cause our actual results to differ from what we currently anticipate include our limited operating history; failure to generate sufficient future cash flows or secure any required future financing on acceptable terms or at all; failure to retain key personnel; effective integration of products and services from AppTec; our reliance on a limited number of customers to continue to account for a high percentage of our revenues; risk of payment failure by any of our large customers, which could significantly harm our cash flows and profitability; dependency upon the continued service of our senior management and key scientific personnel and ability to retain our existing customers or expand our customer base. The financial information contained in this release should be read in conjunction with the consolidated and pro forma financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2007 Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with available on the Securities and Exchange Commission's website at http://www.sec.gov . For additional information on these and other important factors that could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects, see "Risk Factors" beginning on page 10 of our 2007 Annual Report on Form 20-F. Our actual results of operations for the second quarter 2008 are not necessarily indicative of our operating results for any future periods. Any projections in this release are based on limited information currently available to us, which is subject to change. Although these projections and the factors influencing them will likely change, we undertake no obligation to update or revise these forward- looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date of this press release. Such information speaks only as of the date of this release.
