About Omthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Omthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company") is an emerging specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of new therapies for dyslipidemia and the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Epanova, currently the Company's sole product candidate, is a late-stage, novel, omega-3 free fatty acid composition that meaningfully reduces triglycerides, improves other key lipid parameters and is expected to increase patient convenience with 2-gram once-a-day dosing with or without meals. Epanova is a coated soft gelatin capsule containing a complex mixture of polyunsaturated free fatty acids derived from fish oils, including multiple long-chain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, with EPA, DHA, and docosapentaenoic acid being the most abundant forms of omega-3 fatty acids. The Company has completed pharmacokinetic and Phase III clinical studies to investigate the safety and efficacy profile of Epanova. In 2012 the Company reported positive results from its Phase III EVOLVE and ESPRIT trials, both of which were conducted under SPA agreements with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Omthera holds worldwide rights to Epanova under a license from Chrysalis Pharma AG, a privately held Swiss company that is the owner of the product.
