The reason for the meeting is the management's intention to strategically reorganize the company, which requires changes and enlargements in the company's articles. The invitation for the extraordinary shareholder meeting will be published on February 14, 2005 in the German Federal Gazette.

Following resolutions will be resubmitted among others to the shareholders of LION bioscience: strategic reorganization, changes and enlargements in the articles of the company such as the company's objectives and the authorization for LION bioscience to repurchase own shares.
