About American Medical Systems

American Medical Systems, headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, is a diversified supplier of medical devices and procedures to treat incontinence, erectile dysfunction, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), pelvic floor prolapse and other pelvic disorders in men and women. These disorders can significantly diminish one's quality of life and profoundly affect social relationships. In recent years, the number of people seeking treatment has increased markedly as a result of longer lives, higher-quality-of-life expectations and greater awareness of new treatment alternatives. American Medical Systems' products reduce or eliminate the incapacitating effects of these diseases, often through minimally invasive therapies. The Company's products were used to treat approximately 340,000 patients in 2010.

More information about AMS and its products can be found at its website http://www.AmericanMedicalSystems.com and in AMS' Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2010 and its other SEC filings.

J.P.Morgan Securities LLC acted as exclusive financial advisor and Latham & Watkins LLP acted as legal counsel to AMS. '/>"/>
