Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims On Behalf Of Investors Of Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Amylin” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AMLN) (ISIN: US0323461089) concerning the proposed acquisition of Amylin by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. in a cash transaction valued at approximately $5.3 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the Amylin directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Amylin shareholders would receive $31.00 in cash per share of Amylin common stock. However, it is unclear whether the price offered by Bristol-Myers adequately compensates Amylin shareholders.

Amylin shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Rebecca Jarmon at rjarmon@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 314.
