Not for distribution in the United States

Berlin, Germany, December 20, 2012 - Today the Executive Board of Epigenomics
AG, Berlin, Germany (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX; ISIN: DE000A1K0516), with
the approval of the Supervisory Board, has taken the decision to implement an
increase of the issued share capital by utilization of  authorised capital. The
capital increase shall be carried out by way of a rights issue against cash
contributions. It shall be structured in such a manner that the gross proceeds
generated under the capital increase will amount to up to just under
EUR5,000,000 in order to make use of the available exemption from the
publication of a prospectus under German securities laws.

In early January 2013, the Supervisory and Executive boards of the Company plan
to resolve the details of the capital increase, in particular the maximum number
of new shares and the subscription ratio, which will then be published by way of
an ad hoc announcement without undue delay. Publication of the subscription
offer and beginning and end of the subscribtion period will subsequently take
place in line with German market practice.

The new shares will first be offered to the shareholders of the Company. Shares
not taken up by sharesholders might subsequently be offered in a private
placement to institutional investors.

Epigenomics AG intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to finance its
current operations and to build and strengthen the distribution capacities for
its products.
