MEDIPOLIS GMP LTD WARNS OF LAY-OFFS

Medipolis GMP Ltd, a service company owned by Medipolis Ltd, a
part of the Technopolis Group, has warned its personnel of 13 of
possible lay-offs. The arrangement is necessary because the making
of a new customer agreement has been delayed. Medipolis GMP Ltd’s
customers include drug development companies from Finland and
other countries.

The difficulties of Medipolis GMP Ltd are estimated to have no
material effect on the Technopolis Group’s financial results, due
to the non-profit nature of Medipolis GMP Ltd’s operations and its
limited role in the Group.
