NEW YORK, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Amylin" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: AMLN) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. ("Bristol-Myers") in a transaction valued at approximately $5.3 billion

On July 2, 2012, it was announced that Amylin and Bristol-Myers have entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Bristol-Myers will acquire Amylin.  Under the agreement, Amylin shareholders will receive $31.00 in cash per share held.  The transaction price represents a scant 10% premium over Amylin's June 29, 2012 closing price, and at least one analyst has set a target price for Amylin stock of $32.00 per share. 

Our investigation concerns whether the Amylin board of directors is fulfilling its fiduciary duties, maximizing the value of the Company, disclosing all material benefits and costs, and obtaining full and fair consideration for Company shareholders.
