ALLSCHWIL/BASEL, SWITZERLAND - 08 May 2012 - Actelion (SIX: ATLN) will today outline the company's three key strategic elements for value creation at an investor event in London.


Expanding Actelion's leadership in the PAH market

Actelion is well positioned to expand its leadership in the PAH market following the recent successful conclusion of the landmark SERAPHIN morbidity/mortality study with macitentan in patients suffering from pulmonary arterial hypertension.  

Actelion's new product pipeline in PAH also includes selexipag, a novel prostacyclin-IP receptor agonist, currently evaluated in a Phase III morbidity/mortality study.


Refocusing R&D on specialty areas

Actelion will refocus its future R&D activities towards specialty markets. Actelion's current clinical pipeline in immunomodulation and antibiotics provides the company with an opportunity to build a second specialty business franchise, thus accelerating revenue growth and diversifying Actelion's risk profile.


Accelerating cost saving initiatives

Refocusing of Actelion's research and development efforts into specialty areas is expected to result in lower and more targeted R&D spending, as well as lower overhead costs. This is in addition to Actelion's ongoing cost saving program.

Financial Outlook: The execution of Actelion's strategy for value creation is expected - unforeseen events excluded - to produce stable core earnings in 2013 (in local currencies), followed by a return to growth in 2014 and accelerating to double digit growth in 2015.

Jean-Paul Clozel, MD and Chief Executive Officer of Actelion commented: "I am committed to value creation for our shareholders. After the promising macitentan results, Actelion will more than ever continue its effort in the PAH market. The strength of our pipeline and our renewed efforts to optimize profitability will produce a bright future for Actelion."

The complete company update presentation is scheduled in London on Tuesday, 08 May 2012, at 10.00 CEST/ 09.00 BST/ 4.00 a.m. EST and is also made available on the company website, www.actelion.com.
