"2012 was another productive year marked by key partner regulatory filings in
Europe, as well as our establishment of a new collaboration with Pfizer,"
saidGregory I. Frost, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Halozyme.
"These advancements, coupled with the continued progress of our own pipeline
products, leave Halozyme well-positioned for continued growth in 2013."

Fourth Quarter Highlights

Highlights of Halozyme's fourth quarter and recent activities include:

  oPfizer Collaboration: Entry into a worldwide Collaboration and License
    Agreement with Pfizer Inc. for the purpose of developing and
    commercializing products combining proprietary Pfizer biologics with
    Halozyme's Enhanze™ Technology. Pfizer has elected three exclusive
    licenses to therapeutic targets in primary care and specialty care
    indications, and has the right to elect up to three additional targets
    upon payment of additional fees.
  oCinryze^® Phase 2 Trial: ViroPharma initiated a Phase 2b study to evaluate
    the safety and efficacy of subcutaneous (SC) administration of Cinryze (C1
    esterase inhibitor [human]) in adolescents and adults with hereditary
    angioedema (HAE) for prevention of HAE attacks.
  oMabThera^® EMA Filing: Roche submitted a line extension application to the
    European Medicines Agency (EMA) for a subcutaneous (SC) formulation of
    MabThera (rituxumab). MabThera SC uses Halozyme's Enhanze Technology,
    which enables the injection of large volumes of a medication under the
    skin and may result in faster administration times versus intravenously
    (IV) administered MabThera.
  oMabThera Positive Trials: Announced positive results from Roche's SABRINA
    and SparkThera studies, which showed that a fixed dose of MabThera can be
    administered subcutaneously, potentially allowing patients to spend less
    time in infusion centers receiving their MabThera treatment. Specifically,
    the studies showed that subcutaneous injection resulted in non-inferior
    MabThera concentrations in the blood compared with standard IV infusion.

    to$2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenues in the fourth
    quarter of 2012 included license fees revenue from Pfizer of $9.5 million
    and a milestone payment from Rocheof $4 million.
  oResearch and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012
    were$18.6 million, compared with$14.9 million for the fourth quarter of
    2011. The increase was due primarily to an increase in manufacturing
    activities to support potential launches from our collaborators.

    2012 were$7.0 million, compared to$5.9 million for the fourth quarter of
  oCash and cash equivalents were$99.9 million as ofDecember 31, 2012,
