LAVAL, QC, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Labopharm Inc. (TSX: DDS; NASDAQ: DDSS) today announced it has settled the previously announced draw down of $1 million under its standby equity distribution (SEDA) with YA Global Master SPV Ltd. (YA). Under the draw down, Labopharm issued 482,165 of its common shares to YA at a price of $2.07 per common share, net of the applicable discount. (All currency figures are in Canadian dollars.)

In accordance with the terms of the SEDA, the common shares were issued at a discount of 5% to the volume weighted average price (VWAP) on the Toronto Stock Exchange over the ten consecutive trading days following Labopharm's notice of its intention to draw down on the SEDA on December 20, 2009.

Following the completion of the issuance of shares to YA, Labopharm has 57,938,529 shares outstanding.

In connection with the draw down, Labopharm has filed a prospectus supplement to its short-form base shelf prospectus and registration statement to qualify the shares issued to YA. Copies of the final short-form base shelf prospectus, registration statement and prospectus supplement have been filed with SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and EDGAR (www.sec.gov) or may be obtained upon request to the Labopharm contact information below.

Securities Laws Matters

Securities legislation in certain of the provinces of Canada provides purchasers with the right to withdraw from an agreement to purchase securities. This right may be exercised within two business days after receipt or deemed receipt of a prospectus and any amendment. In several of the provinces, the securities legislation further provides a purchaser with remedies for rescission or, in some jurisdictions, revisions of the price or damages if the prospectus and any amendment are not delivered to the purchaser, provided that the remedies for rescission, revisions of the price or damages are exercised by the purchaser within the time limit prescribed by the securities legislation of the purchaser's province. However, such rights and remedies will not be available to purchasers of common shares distributed under this prospectus because the prospectus will not be delivered to purchasers, as permitted under a decision document issued by the Autorite des marches financiers on November 23, 2009.

In several of the provinces, the securities legislation further provides a purchaser with remedies for rescission or, in some jurisdictions, revisions of the price or damages if the prospectus and any amendment contain a misrepresentation, provided that the remedies for rescission, revisions of the price or damages are exercised by the purchaser within the time limit prescribed by the securities legislation of the purchaser's province. Such remedies remain unaffected by the non-delivery of the prospectus, as permitted under the decision document referred to above.

The purchaser should refer to any applicable provisions of the securities legislation of the purchaser's province for the particulars of these rights or consult with a legal adviser.
