Prior to joining Novartis, Mr. Costa spent 30 years at Johnson & Johnson, including as President of Janssen Pharmaceutica, Inc. From August 2009 to August 2012, Mr. Costa served as Chairman of the Board of Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc, a commercial stage biopharma company, until its sale to Bristol-Myers Squibb and AstraZeneca in a $7 billion transaction in 2012.

Both sets of options are exercisable at an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant.
