This excerpt taken from the AMLN DEFA14A filed Apr 17, 2009.
Eastbourne Capital and Icahn Partners have both publicly indicated that they intend to separately nominate a slate of five Directors for election at the meeting. It is important to note that we have met with both of these shareholders and welcome the opportunity to meet with them again, either separately or together.
On a related topic, you may have seen our news yesterday filed in an 8-K that we have reached a partial settlement with the San Antonio Fire and Police Pension Fund. This settlement validates our view that our shareholders should have the right to make decisions on matters such as Board composition. We have always been and remain committed to doing what is in the best interest of all our shareholders.
