Company has appointed William S. Marth as Chairman of the Board, effective June 5, 2013.

AMRI has announced that the Board of Directors has unanimously voted to separate the role of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and has named William S. Marth, an active member of the AMRI Board of Directors, as Chairman of the Board, effective June 5, 2013.

The position of Chairman has been held by Thomas E. D’Ambra, Ph.D. since the Company’s founding.

Dr. D’Ambra retains his roles as a member of the Board of Directors, President and CEO. Mr. Marth was appointed to the AMRI Board of Directors in 2012, joining Veronica G. H. Jordan, Ph.D.; Gabriel Leung; Kevin O’Connor; Arthur J. Roth; and Una S. Ryan, O.B.E., Ph.D.

Mr. Marth said, “AMRI maintains a unique and strong position providing a broad range of drug discovery, development and manufacturing services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and related industries. I have been impressed with the Company’s accomplishments and potential and look forward to contributing to growing both the depth and breadth of AMRI’s services in my role as Chairman.”

Dr. D’Ambra said, “Bill is an accomplished and visionary industry leader who has an unparalleled record of commercial success. Since joining the Board approximately one year ago, he has been very helpful to me personally as well as to the Company. I am confident with Bill as our Chairman, that the Company is poised for continued and greater success. I, along with the rest of the members of the Board of Directors, look forward to continuing to serve with Bill on behalf of all AMRI shareholders. AMRI’s success has been built on a reputation for the highest quality standards in its work and ethics. Our corporate governance structure demonstrates AMRI’s commitment to sustaining a superior level of performance.”

Mr. Marth, formerly President and Chief Executive Officer of Teva - Americas, retired from Teva in 2012. He had previously served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Teva North America from January 2008 to June 2010 and prior to that as President and Chief Executive Officer of Teva USA. He was previously Executive Vice President and Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Teva USA.

Mr. Marth played a significant role in establishing Teva as a leading Specialty Pharmaceutical company and being ultimately recognized as the worldwide No. 1 producer of generic drugs.

In his role, he led respiratory, neuroscience, oncology and women’s healthcare divisions, as well as Latin America and Canada. He was a member of Teva’s global executive management team and Teva Americas’ board of directors since 2007.

He brings to this role his global experience in Strategic Planning, IR, R&D, Supply Chain and Regulatory. He was the architect of the $6.8 billion Cephalon and $7.4 billion Barr Laboratories acquisitions.

Prior to joining Teva USA, he held various positions with the Apothecon division of Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Mr. Marth, who earned his B.Sc. in Pharmacy from the University of Illinois in 1977 and his M.B.A. in 1989 from the Keller Graduate School of Management, DeVry University, is a licensed pharmacist and serves on various other boards and committees, including The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia and the Board of Ambassadors for John Hopkins’ Project RESTORE.

In addition, Mr. Marth served as the Chairman of the Board of the Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA) in 2008 and 2009 and the American Society for Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) in 2010.
