Verenium Announces Signing of Lease for New Office and Lab Space

SAN DIEGO, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Verenium Corporation (Nasdaq: VRNM), a leading industrial biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of high-performance enzymes, today announced the signing of a lease agreement for new office and laboratory space in the Torrey Pines area of San Diego, CA.  The lease is targeted to commence in the summer of 2012 following the build out of the new facility and the expiration of Verenium's current sublease, which was negotiated as part of the sale of its cellulosic biofuels business in July of 2010 to BP Biofuels North America.
