Arrowhead Research Corporation's (NASDAQ: ARWR) ("the Company") President and Chief Executive Officer today issued the following open letter to the Company's shareholders:

Arrowhead CEO Comments on Recent Nasdaq Letter

PASADENA, CA | Posted on February 18th, 2009

Dear Shareholders:

On Friday, February 13, we announced that we had received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") informing us that Arrowhead has fallen below the minimum stockholder equity requirement for the Nasdaq Global Market and that our listing is currently under review. Based on stockholder inquiries received by the Company today, I wanted to provide additional information about the review process and what this means for Arrowhead.

During the review period, Arrowhead common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market. Under Nasdaq rules, Arrowhead may submit a formal plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq Global Market continued listing standards on or before February 26, 2009, and we are currently preparing the submission. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant the Company a 105-day extension to regain compliance.

Should the Nasdaq not accept our compliance plan, we would seek to transfer the listing of our common stock from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Nasdaq Capital Market is one of the three market tier designations for Nasdaq-listed stocks and operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Market, although it has a lower stockholder equity requirement than the Nasdaq Global Market.

We remain optimistic about our business in these challenging times, and we believe that we will be able to continue our progress whether our stock is listed on the Nasdaq Global Market or the Nasdaq Capital Market.

I invite all investors to listen to the conference call for an in-depth review of Arrowhead and its subsidiaries' growth catalysts and market opportunity. An archive of the First Quarter Fiscal 2009 conference call is located at the following link:

On behalf of Arrowhead, we look forward to your continued support.
Sincerely,
Christopher Anzalone
Chief Executive Officer
