About SYGNIS Pharma SYGNIS Pharma AG, headquartered in Heidelberg, is a specialty pharmaceutical company listed on the Prime Standard of the German stock exchange. The Company is focused on the research, development and marketing of innovative therapies for the treatment of disorders of the Central Nervous System. These include Stroke, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and neurological disorders resulting from injuries to the brain or spinal cord. All these disorders are characterized by the fact that, as the disease progresses, nerve cells are damaged and die. Although there is great medical demand, there are currently no or only inadequate treatment options available. One of the central elements in this value-creation chain is the continued expansion of the existing product pipeline. This is achieved by the development of new products as a result of SYGNIS´ own research and the inorganic growth through in-licensing agreements and acquisitions. By means of specific R&D programs at SYGNIS, new pre-clinical drug candidates are identified and evaluated as well as preclinical projects initiated, which are offered for inlicensing. ### Disclaimer Some statements included in this press release, relating neither to proven financial results nor other historical data, should be viewed as forward- looking, i.e. not definite.
