Solid product sales growth performance - Launch preparations in India

IXIARO®/JESPECT® product sales revenues increased by 36.4 % to EUR 4.6m in Q1
2012 compared to EUR 3.3m in Q1 2011. Intercell is on track for the sales
revenue - growth expectations for the full year 2012 of EUR 8-10m.

Intercell's partner Biological E. Ltd. is preparing to launch the Japanese
Encephalitis vaccine to protect small children and adults in India in H1 2012.
The product will be marketed under the brand name JEEV®.

Intercell began the submission process to major regulatory agencies for approval
of IXIARO®/JESPECT® pediatric label extension. The pediatric approval is
expected by the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013.

Intercell received a positive CHMP opinion on the close out of the EMA Article
20 procedure (Commission Regulation (EC) No 726/2004) initiated in June 2011 in
connection with a voluntary, batch specific recall in May 2011. Currently the
European Commission (EC) adoption procedure towards final EC decision is
progressing and the formal close out by the European Commission is expected for
Q2 2012.

R&D programs and activities on track 

Pseudomonas aeruginosa vaccine candidate - On March 13, Intercell announced the
start of a pivotal Phase II/III efficacy trial of its investigational
Pseudomonas aeruginosa vaccine. The trial follows an exploratory Phase II study
in which lower all-cause mortality rates were observed in the vaccine groups as
compared to the control group. First interim data of the futility analysis are
expected by mid 2013.

Clostridium difficile vaccine candidate -Intercell initiated the second part of
the Phase I clinical trial (Phase Ib) with the Company's vaccine candidate IC84
to prevent C. difficile infection. This follows positive first data from a Phase
I study (Phase Ia) in a population of healthy adults aged 18-65 years. Results
are expected by mid 2013.

Tuberculosis: In addition to the Phase II study announced in January 2012,
Intercell and Statens Serum Institut (SSI) will initiate a second clinical Phase
II study to assess the safety and immunogenicity of the vaccine candidate in
healthy adolescents by mid 2012.

Pandemic Influenza Vaccine Enhancement Patch (VEP): The currently ongoing Phase
I study investigates Intercell's adjuvant patch (Vaccine Enhancement Patch -
VEP) containing LT (a heat-labile toxin from E.coli) in combination with GSK's
H5N1-pandemic antigen. Final data are expected in mid or late 2012.

Pre-clinical activities: Intercell's pre-clinical lead vaccine candidate against
Borrelia (Lyme Borreliosis) is heading towards pre-clinical proof of concept.
