Date:5/14/2008

BRANFORD, Conn., May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CuraGen Corporation (Nasdaq: CRGN) announced today the completion of a series of privately negotiated transactions with holders of the Company's 4% Convertible Subordinated Notes due February 2011 (the "2011 Notes") in which the Company retired a total of $50.9 million of the 2011 Notes for an aggregate purchase price of $43.2 million, reflecting an aggregate discount of approximately 15.1% off of face value. CuraGen currently has approximately $100 million or $1.72 per share, in cash and investments on hand, and has $19.0 million of the 2011 Notes outstanding.

With the completion of these transactions, CuraGen will eliminate a total of approximately $5.6 million in interest payments on the 2011 Notes to maturity. The Company now anticipates ending 2008 with cash and investments of approximately $92 million, or $1.59 per share.

"Our planned, systematic strengthening of CuraGen's balance sheet continues with these latest transactions, which have increased our net cash position by approximately $8 million," stated Dr. Timothy Shannon, President and Chief Executive Officer of CuraGen Corporation. "Over the past 16 months, we have increased our net cash position by approximately $87 million, while eliminating over $157 million in debt and over $40 million in annual operating and interest expenses. We believe we are well capitalized with over $100 million to develop our un-partnered antibody drug conjugate, CR011-vcMMAE, in metastatic melanoma and breast cancer and to explore other potential near-term value creation opportunities."
