> Biofrontera will capture full margin of Ameluz® sales with immediate effect

> International launch event with leading dermatologists in Valencia - 27/28 March

Biofrontera AG (FSE: B8F), the biopharmaceutical company focusing on skin cancer, has now taken over marketing and sales activities for Ameluz® and BF-RhodoLED® in Spain as planned in line with its announcement made on 7 November 2014. Previously, these functions were performed by distribution partner Allergan Pharmaceuticals.

The successful transition has been prepared over several months in cooperation with Allergan. In addition, Biofrontera is pleased to announce that Antonio Lopez Belda, former Key Account Manager for dermatology at Allergan, has transferred to Biofrontera, with immediate effect. Mr. Lopez led the launch of Ameluz in Spain and has successfully developed the market since. This will allow for continuity with all established contacts within hospitals and physicians.

"Spain is one of the most important European markets for photodynamic therapy," said Prof. Dr. Hermann Lübbert, CEO of Biofrontera. "In the new structure, we can now collect the entire margin of the Ameluz® sales for Biofrontera. Thus, our profitability in Spain will increase significantly. It is anticipated that the additional investment in sales and marketing should pay off within one year."

The new Biofrontera subsidiary will be named 'Biofrontera Pharma GmbH, sucursal en España' and is based in Cornellá de Llobregat near Barcelona. In the current year Biofrontera expects sales in the mid six-digit Euro range in Spain.

On the occasion of the launch, Biofrontera will hold an international symposium in Valencia from March 27 to 28, and expects some 50 dermatologists from all over Spain to attend the event.
