AEGERION PHARMACEUTICALS ANNOUNCES

FOURTH-QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Company Submits Marketing Applications for Lomitapide in US and EU

Cambridge, MA, March 6, 2012 -

Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEGR), an emerging biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapeutics to treat severe lipid disorders, announced its financial results and business highlights for the fourth-quarter and year ended December 31, 2011. Aegerion recently submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) seeking approval of Aegerion’s lead investigational therapeutic, lomitapide, as an adjunct to a low-fat diet and other lipid-lowering therapies to reduce cholesterol in patients with Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). Late in the day on March 5, 2012, the FDA informed Aegerion that the NDA filing would receive standard review.

“We closed 2011 having made significant progress to ready ourselves for a potential commercial launch of lomitapide,” said Marc D. Beer, Chief Executive Officer. “Following our recent regulatory submissions, we have now turned our attention to working with the HoFH community to identify patients, educate on the disease and increase awareness. We entered 2012 with great momentum, having established a team highly experienced in the rare disease area. This team continues to be motivated by the potential to bring an important therapy to patients who currently have inadequate treatment options available.”

Fourth-Quarter and Year-End 2011 Corporate Highlights

 

   

In October 2011, Aegerion completed its Phase III clinical trial of lomitapide in adult patients with Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia, and in January 2012, Aegerion announced that the 78-week results from the trial were consistent with data previously reported at the 26-and 56-week time points.
