STRONG START FOR EUROPEAN LAUNCH - ALL MILESTONES EXPECTED IN 2012

Moberg Derma (STO: MOB) expects to reach all remaining milestones in its agreement with Meda related to Nalox™ in 2012, generating a further MSEK 15.5. This assessment is based on a successful launch in several markets in Europe, including Germany and France.

The launch of Nalox in Europe is progressing according to plan and it is expected that the remaining milestones in the agreement with Meda will be reached in 2012. To date, a total of MSEK 38.5 in milestone payments have been received, in addition to payments for delivered products, with a total of MSEK 15.5 in milestone payments remaining. In Italy, Menarini’s launch of the product also kicked off according to plan.

“We are very pleased with the powerful product launches that are being rolled out in Europe in collaboration with Meda and Menarini. The market introductions have progressed well, generating strong sales,” says Peter Wolpert, CEO and founder of Moberg Derma.

Since 2010, Moberg Derma has collaborated with Meda on the sales and marketing of Nalox™ in the Nordics, where the product is the market leader. During the second half of 2011 the agreement was expanded to include many European markets, including Germany, France, Spain, UK, as well as Russia and Turkey. In total, Meda’s rights related to Nalox™ comprise a total of 22 countries, representing some 550 million inhabitants. In Italy, Moberg Derma has a similar collaboration with Menarini, which like Meda is among the world’s 50 largest pharmaceutical companies.

About Nalox and nail diseases
Nalox is a topical treatment used to treat nail disease.

Nail fungus is the most common nail disease and afflicts approximately 10% of the general population and increasing with age. The estimated global market potential exceeds USD 1 billion. The untapped potential is significant since many patients remain untreated. It is generally recognized that there is a need for new efficacious and safe topical treatments.
