Date:4/8/2013

BOONTON, N.J., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Unigene Laboratories, Inc. (PINK: UGNE), a leader in the design, delivery, manufacture and development of peptide-based therapeutics, today announced that the Company has entered into a second amendment to a financing agreement with affiliates of Victory Park Capital Advisors, LLC (VPC), whereby VPC has agreed to purchase an additional $750,000 senior secured note, providing Unigene with additional working capital. Under the terms of this financing, proceeds from the sale of the note, which is convertible into shares of UGNE common stock at a conversion price of $0.09 per share, will be used for working capital purposes.

In an effort to conserve capital and further extend its cash runway, Unigene also announced a strategic reorganization and downsizing, which involved a reduction of approximately 40% of its workforce.
