QLT petition for rehearing of Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary litigation is denied
Date:2/24/2009

plaint in the Superior Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts against QLT, alleging that it entered into a written agreement with QLT that requires QLT to pay MGH the same royalties that it pays Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary ("MEEI") on sales of Visudyne(R). QLT intends to vigorously defend against the allegations.

As of December 31, 2008, QLT had cash, short term investments and restricted cash totaling US$290.0 million. That amount included restricted cash of approximately US$124.6 million that is being used as security for the appeal bond that was posted in connection with the appeal in the MEEI litigation decided by the Court of Appeals. Subject to further review, QLT expects that the current amount of the damages award will initially be paid out to MEEI from QLT's restricted cash used to secure the appeal bond. Amounts owing under the District Court decision by QLT to MEEI on future quarterly sales of Visudyne will be recorded and paid as they are due.
