This press release contains a forward-looking statement regarding expected growth in non-GAAP EPS for 2007. Such statement is a prediction and involves risks and uncertainties such that the actual result may differ materially. Among other factors, growth in non-GAAP EPS could be affected by unexpected safety, efficacy or manufacturing issues, additional time requirements for BLA preparation or decision making, need for additional data or clinical studies, FDA actions or delays, the failure to obtain or maintain FDA approval, changes in dosing or duration of product use, competition, pricing, reimbursement, intellectual property or contract rights, the ability to supply product, product withdrawals, new product approvals and launches, product sales, contract revenues and royalties, cost of sales, R&D or MG&A expenses, stock-based compensation expense, unanticipated expenses such as litigation or legal settlement expenses or equity securities write-downs, 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 statement in this press release.

(1) Genentech's non-GAAP operating revenues exclude recognition of deferred royalty revenue associated with the acquisition of Tanox, Inc. Genentech's non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share exclude the after-tax impact of certain items associated with the acquisition of Tanox, Inc., including in-process research and development expenses (a non-recurring expense in the third quarter of 2007), recurring recognition of deferred royalty revenue, recurring amortization of intangible assets, and a gain pursuant to Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) issue no. 04-1 (a non-recurring gain in the third quarter of 2007). Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share also exclude 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.

(3) Pursuant to purchase accounting guidance, estimates associated with the valuation of the assets and liabilities from the acquisition of Tanox, Inc. may change if actual results materially differ from initial estimates. -0-

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) items related to our acquisition of

 Tanox, Inc., including a one-time in-process research and development

 charge of $77 million, amortization of intangible assets in the

 amount of $28 million on a pretax basis in 2007, recognition of

 deferred royalty revenue of approximately $6 million on a pretax

 basis in 2007, a one-time gain on acquisition of $121 million on a

 pretax basis in 2007, and the income tax effect on these items of $40

 million. 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, amortization of intangible assets and

 recognition of deferred royalty revenue associated with the

 acquisition of Tanox, Inc., 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.
