Berlin, Germany, December 21, 2012 - The Executive Board of Epigenomics AG
(ISIN: E000A1K0516) notifies that during the preparation of the annual financial
statements pursuant to German GAAP (HGB) accounting, according to its best
judgment a cumulative loss of more than half of the nominal share capital of the
company has been incurred. This is mainly attributable to budgeted losses from
regular business operations but as well to higher than expected expenses in
connection with the recently completed clinical study. 

The Executive Board is actively reviewing different measures to compensate for
the loss of half of the nominal share capital. The planned rights issue in
January 2013 as announced previously on December 20, 2012 is part of the
measures, which aim at improving the Company's equity and liquidity.

Pursuant to Sec. 92 par. 1 German Stock Corporation Act ("Aktiengesetz"), a loss
amounting to half of the nominal share capital triggers the statutory obligation
to summon a general meeting of shareholders without undue delay. The Executive
Board will therefore invite to an extraordinary general meeting in due course.
In this meeting, the Executive Board will notify the loss of half of the nominal
share capital and outline the situation of the company. An invitation including
an agenda to the extraordinary general meeting will be provided in due time and
form.
