Date:12/12/2013

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lpath, Inc. (Nasdaq: LPTN), the category leader in lipid-targeted therapeutics, is no longer actively participating in Pfizer's process to assign the exclusive option it has for a worldwide license to develop and commercialize Lpath's iSONEP™.  Pfizer has informed Lpath that its offers were not competitive with other offers.Lpath's CEO, Scott Pancoast commented, "We made a serious effort to reacquire this asset, and we continue to believe in iSONEP's prospects.  However, given our commitment to fiscal discipline and building shareholder value, we simply are not in a position at this time to increase our offer.  We appreciate the competing interest shown in iSONEP by the other parties and look forward to Pfizer's process coming to a successful close."About Lpath
