SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Commences An Investigation Into The Proposed Sale Of XenoPort, Inc. And Encourages Investors To Contact The Firm For Additional Information

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of XenoPort, Inc. (Nasdaq: XNPT) ("XenoPort" or the "Company") relating to the proposed buyout of XenoPort by Arbor Pharmaceuticals, LLC.

Under the terms of the agreement, XenoPort shareholders are anticipated to receive $7.03 in cash for each share of XenoPort common stock held. The transaction may undervalue XenoPort and would result in no real gain or a loss for many shareholders given that the Company's 52-week high was $7.86. The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company's Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company's shares of common stock. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for XenoPort stock at $10.00 per share.

If you currently own common stock of XenoPort and believe that the proposed buyout price is too low, or you would like to learn more about the investigation being conducted by Brower Piven, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentinvestigations.html. You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.
