Cytos will become debt-free.

  - Restructuring proposal final and binding to convert all bonds into
    equity

  - Settlement with loan note holders eliminates all claims from loan notes

Schlieren (Zurich), Switzerland, May 4, 2015 - Cytos Biotechnology Ltd
("Cytos") today announced that the convertible bond restructuring approved
by the superior composition authority of creditors of the canton of Zurich
("Obere Kantonale Nachlassbehörde") has become valid and binding
("rechtskräftig") and that the bonds can be converted into shares. An
extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting approved the required capital increase
already and the conversion will take place within the first half of May
2015. The incentive payment of CHF 25.00 per bond will be effected at the
same time and will be free of any withholding tax.

Further, a settlement with the convertible loan note holders was reached
eliminating all claims from the convertible loan notes immediately after
the conversion of the bonds into equity. In exchange, Cytos will make a
final payment of around CHF 4.4 million to the loan notes holders once it
has received the CHF 4 million from Novartis for the buy-out of CAD106 as
well as some payments from OnCore.

As a result of the above, Cytos will very soon be free of any debt upon
completion of the bond conversion and the settlement of the claims with the
loan note holders.
