Business Wire

DALLAS -- March 14, 2013

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe, founder of The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, and the securities litigation
firm of Powers Taylor, LLP announce that the firms are investigating legal
claims against the officers and Board of Directors of Incyte Corporation
(“Incyte” or “Company”) (NasdaqGS: INCY) related to potential securities
violations between April 26, 2012 and August 1, 2012 (the “Class Period”).

In a recently filed federal class action complaint, Incyte and certain of its
officers and directors were charged with violating certain provisions of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that
defendants misrepresented its business success and future business prospects
by misrepresenting and/or failing to disclose material aspects about the sales
and use of its drug Jakafi. Amongst other things the complaint alleges that
the Company made material misstatements in a press release issued on April 26,
2012 and in statements made by the company throughout the Class Period.
Further, when the Company announced a softer sales growth that originally
projected for 2Q 2012 and disclosed the true facts regarding the use and sales
of Jakafi, the shares of Incyte dropped dramatically.

“Recent revelations about alleged improper business practices and procedures
regarding key aspects of Incyte’s business and other misleading financial
statements have prompted the firms to investigate possible breaches of
fiduciary duties and other violations of state law by Incyte’s officers and
directors. Based on our investigation, we are prepared to pursue litigation to
preserve the company and the value of Incyte stock for all shareholders,” said
shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe.
