Liestal, Switzerland, February 28, 2013 - Santhera Pharmaceuticals (SIX: SANN)
announced today that following the voluntary withdrawal of Catena(®) from the
Canadian market and the earlier negative decision of the Committee for Medicinal
Products for Human Use (CHMP) on the Market Authorization Application for
Raxone(®) in Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), the Board has decided
to consider strategic options including product licensing for Raxone(®) in LHON
and the possibility of a merger or acquisition. Santhera has already received
expressions of interest from third parties and has retained Piper Jaffray
Limited to assist the Company in this process.

The publication of the financial results 
for 2012 will be postponed and, together with the financial outlook for 2013, will now be provided within the timelines required by the SIX regulations. Accordingly, the Company will therefore postpone the Annual Shareholders' Meeting previously planned for April 22, 2013. Shareholders should note that whilst the Board believes that it is in the best interest of shareholders to explore these options and take the steps described, there can be no guarantee that any transaction can be consummated. * * * About Santhera Santhera Pharmaceuticals (SIX: SANN) is a Swiss specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative pharmaceutical products for the treatment of orphan neuromuscular and mitochondrial diseases, areas of high unmet medical need with no current therapies.
