In the announcement published on 14th November 2011, the Company informed among others to be working on a number of options to secure conclusion of additional fund raising. Due to the current financial market conditions and the lack of significant progress with the currently available options, the Company believes that it is appropriate to immediately implement certain restructuring measures, aimed at preserving the value of its core assets and which are part of the stricter austerity plan that had been prepared, as previously announced.

These restructuring measures consist in the termination of 9 employment agreements which, together with other fluctuations, will lead to a reduction of more than 50% of the total workforce by the end of February 2012. Furthermore, the activity of the Company will be concentrated in its Stans headquarter, allowing the Viglio offices to be closed by the end of the year.

The Company believes that these measures will allow mondoBIOTECH to continue as a going concern with more contained financial resources, giving the Company time to pursue the licensing of its Medicinal Product Candidates and current as well as additional fund raising options.

The Company will in particular concentrate its activity on the Search and Match powerful mathematical drug discovery engine, on its existing pipeline and on the exploitation of partner's relationships in order to license out the highest possible number of Medicinal Product Candidates during the course of 2012.
