Amgen's Third Quarter 2007 Adjusted Earnings Per Share Increased 4 Percent to $1.08 Third Quarter 2007 Revenue Remained Unchanged at $3.6 Billion; Anemia Franchise Product Sales Decreased 16 Percent

Third Quarter 2007 GAAP Earnings Per Share of $0.18 Reflect $1.0 Billion in Charges Primarily Related to the Write-Off of In-Process R&D from the Alantos and Ilypsa Acquisitions and Restructuring Activities

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 24, 2007--Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) reported adjusted earnings per share (EPS), excluding stock option expense and certain other expenses, of $1.08 for the third quarter of 2007, an increase of 4 percent compared to $1.04 for the third quarter of 2006. Adjusted net income, excluding stock option expense and certain other expenses, decreased 4 percent to $1,181 million in the third quarter of 2007 compared to $1,224 million in the third quarter of 2006. Stock option expense on a per share basis totaled 2 cents and 3 cents for the third quarter of 2007 and 2006, respectively.

Total revenue remained unchanged during the third quarter of 2007 at $3.6 billion versus the third quarter of 2006.

Adjusted EPS and adjusted net income for the third quarter 2007 and 2006 exclude stock option expense, certain expenses related to acquisitions, restructuring charges and certain other items. These expenses and other items are itemized on the attached reconciliation tables. Adjusted EPS including the impact of stock option expense are also itemized on the attached reconciliation tables.

On a reported basis and calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), Amgen's GAAP EPS were $0.18 and GAAP net income was $201 million for the third quarter of 2007. These amounts are down from the prior year GAAP EPS of $0.94 and GAAP net income of $1.1 billion. GAAP reported results for the third quarter of 2007 were negatively impacted by the write-off of $590 million of acquired in-process research and development related to the acquisitions of Alantos and Ilypsa; $293 million of charges principally related to asset impairment, accelerated depreciation, staff separation costs and accruals for losses on leased facilities in connection with the previously announced restructuring plan; and the write-off of $90 million of inventory principally due to the changing regulatory and reimbursement environments.

As a result of the regulatory and reimbursement changes to Erythropoiesis Stimulating Agent (ESA) products and their impact on the Company's operations, in particular Aranesp(R) (darbepoetin alfa), on Aug. 15, 2007, Amgen announced plans to restructure worldwide operations in order to improve its cost structure while continuing to make significant innovative research and development investments and build the framework for future growth. In connection with this restructuring plan, the Company expects to incur approximately $775 million to $850 million in total restructuring charges (as compared to the prior estimate of $600 million to $700 million). The increase in the total estimated restructuring charges is primarily the result of additional rationalization of manufacturing facilities, including the indefinite postponement of planned manufacturing operations in Ireland and the closure of a clinical manufacturing facility in Thousand Oaks. Through Sept. 30, 2007, Amgen has incurred $582 million of restructuring charges and anticipates that the remaining estimated charges will be incurred in the fourth quarter of 2007 and, to a lesser degree, in 2008.

"Sales of our ESA products were adversely affected by regulatory and reimbursement changes," said Kevin Sharer, chairman & CEO. "We are making good progress in implementing a global restructuring plan to rationalize our cost structure and improve cash flow, while continuing to invest in the future."

Product Sales Performance

During the third quarter, total product sales increased 1 percent to $3,524 million from $3,503 million in the third quarter of 2006. Sales in the U.S. totaled $2,809 million, a decline of 2 percent versus $2,864 million in the third quarter of 2006. International sales increased 12 percent to $715 million versus $639 million in the third quarter of 2006. Changes in foreign exchange positively impacted third quarter 2007 international sales by $46 million. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, total product sales decreased 1 percent and international product sales increased 5 percent.

Worldwide sales of Aranesp decreased 23 percent to $818 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $1,067 million in the third quarter of 2006. This was principally driven by a decline in U.S. demand. U.S. Aranesp sales were $460 million versus $720 million in the third quarter of the prior year, a decrease of 36 percent. This was due to a decline in demand primarily reflecting reaction to regulatory and reimbursement developments throughout the year, including the National Coverage Determination (NCD) issued by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on July 30. To a lesser extent, this also reflects a decline in segment share versus the third quarter of the prior year. International Aranesp sales increased 3 percent to $358 million versus $347 million in the third quarter of 2006, due to changes in foreign exchange which positively impacted third quarter 2007 sales by approximately $24 million. In Europe, growth was negatively impacted by dosing conservatism in the oncology segment and price pressure across the ESA class. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, worldwide Aranesp sales decreased 26 percent and international sales decreased 4 percent.

Sales of EPOGEN(R) (Epoetin alfa) decreased 5 percent to $602 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $633 million in the third quarter of 2006. This was primarily driven by a decline in dose / utilization and increased discounts versus the third quarter of the prior year, partially offset by patient population growth of 3 percent. The decline in dose / utilization reflects reaction to regulatory and reimbursement developments throughout the year, including final KDOQI(TM) guidelines, revised labeling and the pending EMP update.

Combined worldwide sales of Neulasta(R) (pegfilgrastim) and NEUPOGEN(R) (Filgrastim), increased 10 percent to $1,100 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $998 million in the third quarter of 2006. Combined sales of Neulasta and NEUPOGEN in the U.S. were $830 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $772 million in the third quarter of 2006, an increase of 8 percent primarily driven by favorable wholesaler inventory changes. Combined international sales increased 19 percent to $270 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $226 million for the same quarter in the prior year, reflecting both increased conversion to Neulasta versus the third quarter of the prior year and changes in foreign exchange which positively impacted third quarter 2007 combined international sales by $18 million. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, combined worldwide sales increased 8 percent and international product sales increased 12 percent.

Sales of Enbrel(R) (etanercept) increased 16 percent in the third quarter of 2007 to $821 million versus $705 million during the same period in 2006 driven by an increase in demand due to increases in both patients and net sales price. Sales growth continued in both rheumatology and dermatology, driven by segment growth that was partially offset by slight share declines versus the third quarter of the prior year. ENBREL continues to maintain a leading position in both segments.

Worldwide sales of Sensipar(R) (cinacalcet HCl) increased 47 percent to $122 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $83 million in the third quarter of 2006. This growth was principally driven by demand.

Vectibix(TM) (panitumumab) sales for the third quarter were $41 million as compared to $45 million in the second quarter of 2007. This decrease was primarily driven by reaction to unfavorable Panitumumab Advanced Colorectal Cancer Evaluation (PACCE) study results released late in the first quarter of 2007.

Operating Expense Analysis on an Adjusted Basis:

Cost of sales increased 21 percent to $585 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $485 million in the third quarter of 2006. This increase was primarily driven by product mix, due to higher sales of ENBREL, which is more costly to manufacture, as well as certain other items. These include an excess capacity charge at the Company's manufacturing facility in Puerto Rico and the write-off of excess inventory primarily related to certain new product presentations. Excess capacity charges are expected to continue to occur through 2008. Cost of sales margin throughout this period is expected to be similar to the third quarter of 2007 due to excess capacity charges and product mix.

Research & Development (R&D) expenses decreased 16 percent to $699 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $835 million in the third quarter of 2006. R&D expenses were lower primarily due to optimization of ongoing trials, lower in-licensing expenses primarily due to two deals in the third quarter of 2006 and the benefit derived from licensing denosumab in Japan to Daiichi Sankyo. R&D expenses are expected to increase in the fourth quarter versus the third quarter. For the full year, R&D expenses are expected to be below 2006 levels.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 3 percent to $804 million in the third quarter of 2007 versus $782 million in the third quarter of 2006. The increase was principally due to higher legal costs associated with ongoing litigation and higher Wyeth profit share expenses due to ENBREL sales growth partially offset by lower promotion and advertising spending on marketed products. SG&A expense growth was essentially flat year-over-year excluding higher Wyeth profit share expenses. As in the past, SG&A expenses are expected to increase in the fourth quarter versus the third quarter, though not as much as in 2006.

During the third quarter of 2007, adjusted EPS grew 4 percent while revenue remained unchanged. Adjusted EPS leverage of 4 percentage points for the third quarter was principally driven by fewer shares used in the computation of adjusted diluted EPS partially offset by higher interest expense.

Average diluted shares for adjusted EPS in the third quarter of 2007 were 1,089 million versus 1,174 million in the third quarter of 2006.

Capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2007 were approximately $306 million versus $376 million in the third quarter of 2006. Capital expenditures for the full year 2007 are expected to be approximately $1.4 billion versus $1.2 billion in the full year 2006. Worldwide cash and marketable securities were $6.0 billion and debt was $11.3 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2007.

The Company reaffirmed its 2007 adjusted EPS guidance range of $4.13 to $4.23 excluding stock option expense and certain other expenses.

Third Quarter Product and Pipeline Update

The Company provided updates on selected late-stage clinical programs including Aranesp, Vectibix, ENBREL, romiplostim (formerly known as AMG 531) and denosumab.

Aranesp: The Company provided an update on its discussions with regulatory agencies regarding product labeling revisions to its ESA products. The Company is working closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to complete revisions to its U.S. labels based on both the Oncologics Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) and Cardiovascular and Renal Drugs Advisory Committee (CRDAC) recommendations. As previously announced the European Medicines Agency's (EMEA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has communicated a proposal for amending prescribing information for ESAs in the European Union (E.U.), including Aranesp. The proposed amendments are expected to be finalized by the end of the year.

Vectibix: The Company previously announced that the CHMP issued a positive opinion recommending Vectibix for conditional approval in the E.U. for patients with refractory metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) with non-mutated (wild-type) KRAS genes. The Company will continue to integrate KRAS and other biomarker analyses into its ongoing clinical program studying Vectibix in earlier lines of mCRC therapy in combination with chemotherapy, as well as in other tumor types. As a result, the protocols of the Phase 3 studies of Vectibix in the treatment of 1st and 2nd line colorectal cancer are being amended. As part of these modifications, the Company plans to increase enrollment in both studies which will extend the completion of these studies versus previously planned timelines. These study changes are expected to allow the Company to assess the utility of Vectibix in patients with and without mutant KRAS-bearing tumors.

The Company also announced that they and the FDA have adopted changes to the U.S. prescribing information for Vectibix based on the results of the PACCE trial. The update is intended to highlight to clinicians the greater risk seen when Vectibix is combined with Avastin(R) and the specific chemotherapy used in the PACCE trial to treat patients with 1st line mCRC. Vectibix is not indicated for the 1st line treatment of mCRC and the new safety information applies to an unapproved use of Vectibix.

ENBREL: The Company and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, a division of Wyeth, have submitted a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) to the FDA for the use of ENBREL in treating pediatric patients with chronic moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who have tried another therapy. If approved by the FDA, ENBREL is expected to be the first biologic, as well as the first systemic medication, indicated to treat this disease in pediatric patients.

Romiplostim (AMG 531): The Company has filed for FDA approval of romiplostim for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in adult patients with chronic immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and expects to file in the E.U., Canada and Australia by the end of 2007. Romiplostim successfully met all key endpoints in its pivotal Phase 3 studies and data from both studies as well as a long-term extension study will be presented at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) later this year.

Denosumab: Denosumab is still on target for review of the entire Postmenopausal Osteoporosis (PMO) data set in the second half of 2008. The Company disclosed that its Phase 2 PMO study in Japan met its primary and secondary endpoints.

(a) To exclude the impact of stock option expense recorded in
     accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards
     ("SFAS") No. 123R. For the three and nine months ended September
     30, 2007 and 2006, the total pre-tax expense for employee stock
     options in accordance with SFAS No. 123R was $42 million and $140
     million and $50 million and $179 million, respectively.

    "Adjusted" diluted EPS including the impact of stock option
     expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007
     and 2006 was as follows:

                     ========== =========== ============= ===== ======

    (1) To exclude severance and other separation costs partially
         offset by the reversal of previously accrued expenses for
         bonuses and stock-based compensation awards, which will be
         forfeited as a result of the employees' termination.

    (2) To exclude asset impairment charges incurred in connection
         with the rationalization of our worldwide manufacturing
         operations in order to gain cost efficiencies and, to a
         lesser degree, the moderation of the expansion of our
         research facilities.

    (3) To exclude accelerated depreciation resulting from our
         decision to accelerate the closure of one of our ENBREL
         commercial bulk production operations in connection with the
         rationalization of our worldwide network of manufacturing
         facilities. The decision to accelerate the closure of this
         manufacturing operation was principally based on a thorough
         review of the supply plan for bulk ENBREL inventory across
         its worldwide manufacturing network, including consideration
         of expected increases in manufacturing yields, and the
         determination that the related assets had no future uses in
         the Company's operations. The amount included in the table
         above represents the excess of accelerated depreciation
         expense over the depreciation that would otherwise have been
         recorded if there were no plans to accelerate the closure of
         this manufacturing operation.

    (4) To exclude from SG&A the cost recoveries for certain
         restructuring expenses, principally with respect to
         accelerated depreciation, in connection with our co-promotion
         agreement with Wyeth. Also, to exclude from Other items
         charges principally related to loss accruals for leases for
         certain research and development facilities that will not be
         used in our business.
(c) To exclude the write-off of inventory principally due to changing
     regulatory and reimbursement environments.

(d) To exclude for the applicable periods the ongoing, non-cash
     amortization of the R&D technology intangible assets acquired
     with the acquisition of Abgenix, Inc. ("Abgenix"), effective
     April 1, 2006, and Avidia, Inc. ("Avidia"), effective October 24,
     2006. The non-cash charge for 2007 is currently estimated to be
     approximately $71 million, pre-tax.

(e) To exclude for the applicable periods merger related expenses
     incurred due to the Alantos Pharmaceutical Holding, Inc.
     ("Alantos"), Ilypsa, Inc. ("Ilypsa"), Abgenix and Tularik Inc.
     ("Tularik") acquisitions, primarily related to incremental costs
     associated with retention and/or integration. Substantially all
     related amounts have been incurred.

(f) To exclude for the applicable periods the non-cash expense
     associated with writing-off the acquired in-process research and
     development ("IPR&D") related to the acquisitions of Abgenix in
     2006 and Alantos and Ilypsa in 2007.

(g) To exclude the ongoing, non-cash amortization of acquired product
     technology rights, primarily ENBREL, related to the Immunex
     Corporation ("Immunex") acquisition. The non-cash charge for 2007
     is currently estimated to be approximately $295 million, pre-tax.

(h) To exclude the impairment of a non-ENBREL related intangible asset
     previously acquired in the Immunex acquisition.

(i) To exclude merger related expenses incurred due to the Abgenix
     acquisition, primarily related to incremental costs associated
     with recording inventory acquired at fair value which is in
     excess of our manufacturing cost.

(j) To exclude the impact of writing-off the cost of a semi-completed
     manufacturing asset that will not be used due to a change in
     manufacturing strategy.

(k) To exclude the pro rata portion of the deferred financing and
     related costs that were immediately charged to interest expense
     as a result of certain holders of the convertible notes due in
     2032 exercising their March 1, 2007 put option and the related
     convertible notes being repaid in cash.

(l) To exclude the income tax benefit recognized as the result of
     resolving certain non-routine transfer pricing issues with the
     Internal Revenue Service for prior periods.

(m) To reflect the tax effect of the above adjustments for 2007,
     excluding for the applicable periods: (1) certain of the
     restructuring charges (see (b) above), (2) certain components of
     the write-off of inventory (see (c) above), (3) the write-off of
     the acquired IPR&D related to the Alantos and Ilypsa acquisitions
     (see (f) above), (4) the write-off of the cost of a semi-
     completed manufacturing asset (see (j) above), and (5) the tax
     benefit recognized as a result of resolving certain non-routine
     transfer pricing issues with the IRS (see (l) above).

(n) To reflect the tax effect of the above adjustments for 2006,
     excluding for the nine-month period the write-off of the acquired
     IPR&D related to the Abgenix acquisition (see (f) above).

     acquired IPR&D related to the acquisitions of Alantos and Ilypsa.

(d) To exclude the ongoing, non-cash amortization of acquired product
     technology rights, primarily ENBREL, related to the Immunex
     acquisition. The non-cash charge for 2007 is estimated to be

(i) To exclude the impact of writing-off the cost of a semi-completed
     manufacturing asset that will not be used due to a change in
     manufacturing strategy.

(j) To exclude the pro rata portion of the deferred financing and
     related costs that were immediately charged to interest expense
     as a result of certain holders of the convertible notes due in
     2032 exercising their March 1, 2007 put option and the related
     convertible notes being repaid in cash.

(k) To exclude other merger related expenses incurred due to the
     Tularik, Abgenix, Avidia, Alantos and Ilypsa acquisitions.
