Ad-hoc RELEASE
Announcement according to Article 17 European Market Abuse Regulation (MAR)


Biotest AG disclosed today that foreign trade approval has been given by the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and, thus, the last remaining condition has been met for the takeover offer by Tiancheng (Germany) Pharmaceutical Holdings AG, the acquisitions company of the Creat Group Corporation. Thus the unsolicited takeover bid announced on May 18, 2017 for the shares of Biotest AG becomes effective. Payment of the purchase price, in the amount of EUR28.50 per ordinary share tendered and EUR19.00 per preferred share tendered, will take place in the next few days.

In connection with the approval, Biotest has signed an agreement for the sale of its U.S. companies. Until this sale closes, Biotest AG has transferred the U.S. companies to a U.S. trust. As a result of the transfer to the U.S. trust, the business attributable to these companies qualifies as a discontinued operation. This reduces the guidance for the continuing operations by the revenue and earnings contribution of the discontinued operations.
