Spectrum Pharmaceuticals And Allos Therapeutics Announce That FTC Clears Transaction; Tender Offer For Shares Of Allos Common Stock To Expire At 5pm Eastern Time On September 4, 2012

Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SPPI) (Spectrum) and Allos Therapeutics, Inc. (NasdaqGS: ALTH) (Allos) today announced that the Federal Trade Commission terminated the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, relating to the previously announced pending acquisition of all outstanding shares of common stock of Allos by Spectrum.

As previously disclosed, Spectrum has commenced a tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Allos for $1.82 per share in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.

Spectrum intends to accept for payment shares of Allos common stock validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the scheduled tender offer expiration at 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. The consummation of the tender offer is conditioned upon the tender of a majority of the outstanding shares of Allos common stock, as well as other conditions that are specified in the Schedule TO filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 13, 2012.

“This acquisition is a transformational step for Spectrum, building upon our desire to add value for our shareholders and increasing our ability to meet the needs of cancer patients,” stated Rajesh C. Shrotriya, M.D., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. “Key to the acquisition is the diversification of our portfolio of marketed products by adding Allos’ FOLOTYN, which targets the same physicians as our ZEVALIN product.”

Dr. Shrotriya added, “We see a number of synergies between the two companies, which could result in significant savings. Our top priority continues to be to create an environment that nurtures talent and allows us to excel and enhance our presence in oncology markets where our products are making a difference. We are excited about the prospect of combining the two companies and in welcoming our new Allos colleagues to the Spectrum team.”
