Heidelberg (euro adhoc) - Press Release 

SYGNIS announces the adaptation of its organisation to the new business activity
 
Heidelberg 20 December 2012 - SYGNIS Pharma AG (Frankfurt: LIO1; ISIN:
DE000A1RFM03, Prime Standard) announced today the discontinuation of its
therapeutic R&D project KIBRA and the adaptation of its organisation to the new
business activity. At the Heidelberg site the staff will be reduced by 10
employees. These measures are implemented to concentrate the financial resources
on the development and marketing of novel technologies in molecular biology in
line with the new corporate strategy. This new business was acquired in 2012 by
joining forces with the Spanish X-Pol Biotech.

Peter Willinger, Chief Financial Officer, stated: "Despite good progress in the
project, an outlicensing of the KIBRA project was unfortunately not possible
within the available timeline. The KIBRA project can not be continued with
internal resources. The realignment of the company regrettably makes a staff
reduction necessary. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all
employees affected for their excellent work for SYGNIS."
