The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. Leverkusen, 3 May 2012 - In 2005, Biofrontera AG had issued a convertible bond 2005/2012, divided in 200,000 bearer debentures with equal rights attached to each debenture (ISIN: DE000A0E964; Wertpapierkennummer (German Security Identification Number): A0E964) with a nominal value of EUR 100.00 each. Since the necessary requirements are met, Biofrontera AG has resolved today to redeem the outstanding debentures in accordance with Clause 9 para 5 of the bond's terms and conditions. The company has indicated several times that it intends to redeem the outstanding bearer bonds, inter alia in the context of two exchange offers regarding the convertible bond 2005/2012 (cf. ad-hoc releases of 7 June 2011 and 16 November 2011). The creditors of the convertible bond 2005/2012 had been offered to exchange their debentures into the 5 % option bond 2011/2016. As a consequence of the redemption, the convertible bond 2005/2012 will be completely repaid. Being able to prematurely redeem and repay the bond before the regular maturity date will improve the liquidity of the company by approx. EUR 840,000.
