Leverkusen, Germany, 25 March 2015 - 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.
