Explanation of Responses:

* If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 4(b)(v).
** Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) The Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") were granted pursuant to the Amgen Inc. 2009 Director Incentive Program, as amended, under the Amgen Inc. 2009 Equity Incentive Plan (the "Director Program") and vested immediately because the director has three years or more of prior continuous service as a director. Vested RSUs are paid in shares of the Company's common stock on a one-to-one basis. Vested RSUs may be deferred by the director, in which case, payment will occur according to the elected deferral schedule.
(2) These shares include 165 Dividend Equivalents ("DEs") granted pursuant to the Director Program. The acquisition of DEs had previously been reported in Table II of the director's Form 4 filings prior to the Company implementing a qualifying dividend reinvestment plan in 2012. DEs are credited on the director's unvested, and vested but deferred, RSUs and are paid out in shares of the Company's common stock on a one-to-one basis along with a cash payment for any remaining fractional share amount.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, see Instruction 6 for procedure.

Potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information contained in this form are not required to respond unless the form displays a currently valid OMB number.
