Speedel is a 2004 Tornado100 Winner

31 August 2005, Basel, Switzerland -- Speedel announced today that it has applied for the listing of its shares on the SWX Swiss Exchange Main Segment, without a public offering. The first trading day has been approved to be Thursday 08 September 2005, and the shares will be traded under the symbol SPPN. The shares to be listed are 6,783,405 currently issued registered shares with a nominal value of CHF 2.00 each. The company is not issuing new shares and is not raising funds at this point in time. The listing also covers conditional capital of up to 1,537,190 registered shares with a nominal value of CHF 2.00 each.

Dr. Alice Huxley, CEO, said: “Speedel has reached the maturity to be a listed company. Our prime objectives in this listing process are to better position the company within its international biopharmaceutical peer group, to have a broader shareholder base, and to obtain analyst research coverage. With our mature and diverse pipeline, sustainable revenues to be expected as of 2007, the strong backing of our current shareholders, and the proven track-record of our experienced management team, Speedel is well-positioned for future growth as one of Europe’s premier public biopharmaceutical companies.”

Konrad P. Wirz, CFO, commented: “This listing transaction simplifies the process of becoming listed for the company and all involved parties and the market will determine the price of Speedel’s shares. With cash and tradable securities of about CHF 122 million on hand in mid-August 2005, we have resources to fund our current pipeline until at least the first quarter of 2007. We are pleased that our major shareholders will continue to support us as a listed company and we look forward to welcoming new investors.”

UBS Investment Bank is acting as the company’s listing agent. UBS Investment Bank, Merrill Lynch International and Rüd Blass Privatbank are acting as financial advisors to the company.
