Ampio Responds to Recent Publications by Anonymous Short Sellers
Date:12/16/2011

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMPE) ("Ampio" or the "Company"), a company that discovers and develops new uses for previously approved drugs and new molecular entities, issued a statement in response to recent publications about the Company by anonymous short sellers. The Company believes increased volatility and volume in its common stock is a result of factually inaccurate and materially misleading information being published on the internet about the Company. These anonymous publications disclose that the authors stand to benefit financially from a decline in Ampio's stock.

The Company is investigating the claims that were made and is evaluating potential legal recourse to protect the shareholders and officers of the Company.

Don Wingerter, Chief Executive Officer, stated "Ampio's Board of Directors stands behind the integrity of its science, management, products, clinical trials and public filings.  The Company's material progress in attaining regulatory approval for Zertane™, Ampion™ and Optina™  reinforces our confidence in Ampio's fundamentals, product strategy, and positive outlook moving forward."

About Ampio

Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. develops innovative proprietary drugs for metabolic disease, eye disease, kidney disease, inflammation, CNS disease, and male sexual dysfunction. The product pipeline includes new uses for previously approved drugs and new molecular entities ("NMEs"). By concentrating on development of new uses for previously approved drugs, approval timelines, costs and risk of clinical failure are reduced because these drugs have strong potential to be safe and effective while their shorter development times can significantly increase near term value.
