Microbia Announces Name Change to Ironwood Pharmaceuticals
Date:4/7/2008

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Microbia, Inc. today announced that it has changed its name to Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The ironwood is a long-lived tree that thrives in the harshest desert environment, with some trees surviving as long as 1,500 years. Known as a "nurse tree," it provides a shaded microclimate with lower temperatures, higher water availability, and more organic matter for birds, reptiles, insects, animals, and plants. In addition, the name Ironwood encompasses the inorganic and organic -- the properties of essential elements and the characteristics of life.

"As Microbia has developed and progressed, we have outgrown the usefulness of the name Microbia," said Peter Hecht, CEO. "With that in mind, we sought a name for the company that reflects our approach to creating important human medicines. Because our research efforts are not limited to a single therapeutic area, we require a name that will accommodate a broad range of discoveries and products. We chose a name that not only suits us today, but also can endure for 100 years."
