Royalty revenues of $484 million in the second quarter of 2007 included approximately $65 million in one-time revenues related to a new collaboration agreement. As part of this new agreement, three years' worth of future royalty revenues were accelerated to the second quarter of 2007. The new agreement also included an up-front license cost of an approximately equal amount, which Genentech recorded as R&D expense, so overall the transaction had no material earnings per share impact for the quarter.

Genentech also submitted two supplemental Biologics License Applications (sBLAs) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Herceptin(R) (Trastuzumab) in adjuvant breast cancer based on data from the BCIRG-006 trial. One of the submissions has the potential to add a non-anthracycline-containing treatment regimen of docetaxel, carboplatin and Herceptin as a labeled option for women with HER2-positive breast cancer.

The company also provided information on the sBLA for Avastin with chemotherapy in first-line metastatic breast cancer based on data from the E2100 trial. Genentech indicated that it is planning to resubmit the sBLA to the FDA in August.

Genentech announced that an interim analysis of a second Phase III study of Avastin in advanced renal cell cancer showed that patients receiving Avastin in combination with interferon had increased progression-free survival and tumor response rate compared to patients receiving interferon alone. No new safety signals related to interferon and Avastin were observed. The trial, conducted and analyzed by the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB), is ongoing. A final analysis of overall survival, the primary endpoint, will be conducted when the data are mature. The company plans to include information from the CALGB study as support for a potential sBLA submission based on Roche's AVOREN study.

Other Company Activities

Genentech announced that on April 27, 2007, its cell culture manufacturing facility in Oceanside, California. received FDA licensure for the production of bulk Avastin drug product. The approval adds 90,000 liters of biologic manufacturing capacity.

This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding the potential for a non-anthracycline-containing Herceptin labeled option, potential submission of the Avastin renal cell carcinoma sBLA, timeframe for the Avastin breast cancer sBLA resubmission and expected growth in non-GAAP EPS for 2007. Such statements are predictions and involve risks and uncertainties such that actual results may differ materially. Among other factors, the Avastin sBLA submissions could be affected by a number of factors, including unexpected safety, efficacy or manufacturing issues, additional time requirements for data collection or analyses, coordination with third parties, BLA preparation or decision making, need for additional data or clinical studies and FDA actions or delays; the potential Herceptin labeled option could be affected by all of the foregoing and the failure to obtain or maintain FDA approval, competition, pricing, reimbursement, intellectual property or contract rights, the ability to supply product, product withdrawals and new product approvals and launches; and growth in expected non-GAAP EPS could be affected by all of the foregoing and by achieving sales revenue consistent with internal forecasts, costs of sales, R&D or MG&A expenses, unanticipated expenses such as litigation or legal settlement expenses or equity securities write-downs, stock-based compensation expense, contract revenues and royalties, fluctuations in tax and interest rates, and changes in accounting or tax laws or the interpretation of such laws. Please also refer to Genentech's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Genentech disclaims, and does not undertake, any obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements in this press release.

(1) Genentech's non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share exclude the after-tax impact of recurring charges related to the 1999 redemption of Genentech's stock by Roche Holdings, Inc., litigation-related special items and employee stock-based compensation expense. The differences in non-GAAP and GAAP numbers, including expected 2007 earnings per share, are reconciled in the accompanying tables and on http://www.gene.com.

(2) Genentech's non-GAAP reported COS, R&D and MG&A expenses exclude the effects of employee stock-based compensation expense associated with Genentech's adoption of FAS 123R on January 1, 2006. Stock-based compensation expense was recognized in COS for the first time in the first quarter of 2007 as the company capitalized employee stock-based compensation into inventory produced in 2006 and began to sell those products in 2007. The differences in non-GAAP and GAAP numbers are reconciled in the accompanying tables and on http://www.gene.com. -0-

     compensation expense under FAS 123R, recurring charges related to

     the redemption of our common stock, and litigation-related

     special items.

(5) Weighted average shares used to compute non-GAAP diluted earnings

     per share were computed exclusive of the methodology used to

     determine dilutive securities under FAS 123R.


Reconciliation of 2007 GAAP and Non-GAAP EPS Estimates

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Our 2007 non-GAAP EPS estimate excludes the effects of: (i) recurring

 amortization charges related to the 1999 redemption of our common

 stock by Roche Holdings, Inc., which are estimated to be

 approximately $104 million on a pretax basis in 2007, (ii)

 litigation-related special items for accrued interest and associated

 bond costs on the City of Hope judgment which are currently estimated

 to be approximately $54 million on a pretax basis in 2007, (iii)

 income tax effect of $63 million on recurring charges related to the

 redemption of our common stock and litigation-related special items,

 (iv) employee stock-based compensation expense, which we expect the

 net of tax diluted EPS impact to be in the range of $0.23 to $0.25

 per share for 2007, and (v) any in-process R&D charge and

 amortization of intangible assets that would result if we acquire

 Tanox, Inc. Our 2007 GAAP EPS would include the items listed above as

 well as any other potential special charges related to existing or

 future litigation or its resolution, or changes in or adoption of

 accounting principles, all of which may be significant.


The statements regarding the amounts relating to the 1999 Roche

 redemption of our common stock, litigation-related special items and

 employee stock-based compensation expense are forward-looking and

 such statements are predictions and involve risks and uncertainties

 such that actual results may differ materially.  The amounts

 identified above could be affected by a number of factors, including

 a re-valuation of certain intangible assets, greater than expected

 litigation-related costs, the number of options granted to employees,

 our stock price and certain valuation assumptions concerning our

 stock.  We disclaim, and do not undertake, any obligation to update

 or revise any of these forward-looking statements.
