The Company will also host an investor presentation and webcast on Sunday, June 10 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT.

About BYDUREON™ (exenatide extended-release for injectable suspension)BYDUREON is the first and only once-weekly medicine to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is a once-weekly formulation of exenatide, the active ingredient in BYETTA ® (exenatide) injection, which has been available in the U.S. since June 2005 and is used in nearly 80 countries worldwide. BYDUREON works with the body to help make its own insulin when needed, providing continuous glycemic control with just one dose per week. Using Alkermes plc’s proprietary technology for long-acting medications, the biodegradable microspheres in each dose of BYDUREON provide a controlled release of exenatide throughout the week. BYDUREON was approved in the U.S. in January 2012 and in Europe in June 2011.

BYDUREON is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar (glucose) in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus, and should be used along with diet and exercise. BYDUREON is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes.
