NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--EvercorePartners Inc. (NYSE: EVR) announced today that Sean
E. Murphy has agreed to join the firm’s Investment Banking business as a Senior Advisor. Mr. Murphy, who will be
based in Chicago, will focus on advising clients in the health care industry.

Mr. Murphy was most recently a Corporate Vice President and Head of Business Development and Mergers and
Acquisitions at Abbott Laboratories, Inc. His career at Abbott spanned three decades, including operations
management, such as running the vascular business after the acquisition of Perclose, and leading Abbott’s external
development effort for ten years. In that capacity, Mr. Murphy led over $30 billion in transactions across the
pharmaceutical, medical technology, diagnostics, and nutrition markets, including the more recent acquisitions of
Solvay Pharma, American Medical Optics, and Guidant’s vascular business.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Sean to Evercore, adding further depth to our Health Care practice,” said
Roger Altman, Evercore Chairman. “In an environment where our health care clients are affected by reform and
massive budgetary constraints in developed economies, and by vast social transformation in emerging markets, Sean
brings strategic insights which are invaluable.” 

“In many years of working with investment banks, I have come to appreciate the value of thoughtful guidance that
investment banking advisors can provide. In this next phase of my career, I am delighted to be associated with a firm
that puts intellectual rigor and independence first,” said Mr. Murphy.

“Over the years, I have had the privilege of observing the series of external development moves made by Abbott.
It’s a company that exemplifies how strong operational management and astute deal making can support a clear
strategy. Sean was central to that effort, and is one of the most talented M&A professionals in the corporate world,”
said Francois Maisonrouge, Senior Managing Director and head of Evercore’s Health Care Group.

Mr. Murphy will work with Evercore’s health care professionals worldwide. He will concentrate on the
biopharmaceutical, medical technology and diagnostics sectors.
