NEW YORK -- January 30, 2013

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New
York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Epocrates, Inc.
(“Epocrates” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EPOC) for potential breaches of
fiduciary duties in connection with their duty to disclose material
information in the Preliminary Proxy (“Proxy”) filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on January 25, 2013 in relation to the sale of the Company
to athenahealth Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN) in an all-cash deal valued at
approximately $293 million. Furthermore, the price per share agreed to in the
proposed transaction is also under investigation since Epocrates’ stockholders
will receive only $11.75 in cash for each share of Epocrates common stock they
own, while according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one financial analyst has set
a price target of $13 for Epocrates.

The investigation focuses on whether Epocrates’ Board of Directors breached
their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to disclose
all material information in the Proxy and to conduct an adequate and fair
sales process prior to agreeing to this proposed transaction, and on whether
and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the
detriment of Epocrates’ shareholders.
