OvaScience (NASDAQ: OVAS) is a global life sciences company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of new fertility treatments. The Company’s patented technology is based on the discovery of egg precursor cells (EggPCs), which are found in the ovaries. By applying proprietary technology to identify and isolate EggPCSM cells, OvaScience is developing potential next generation in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments. OvaScience launched the AUGMENTSM treatment, which aims to improve egg quality and increase the success of IVF, in international markets and has two additional treatments in development: the OvaPrimeSM treatment, designed to boost a woman’s egg reserve using her own EggPC cells; and the OvaTureSM treatment, which seeks to create mature fertilizable eggs from a woman’s own EggPC cells without the need for hormone injections. OvaScience’s team of scientists, physicians and advisers includes recognized leaders in the field of reproductive medicine.

This press release includes forward-looking statements about the Company’s plans for the AUGMENT treatment and its two fertility treatments in development. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements as a result of various important factors, including risks related to: our expectation that the AUGMENT treatment and OvaPrime treatment meet the requirements of a class of products exempt from premarket review and approval under applicable regulations in those countries where we have launched or plan to introduce the AUGMENT treatment and plan to introduce the OvaPrime treatment; the science underlying our treatment and treatments in development (including the AUGMENT, OvaPrime and OvaTure treatments), which is unproven; our ability to obtain regulatory approval where necessary for our potential treatments; our ability to develop our potential treatments, including the OvaPrime and OvaTure treatments, on the timelines we expect, if at all; our ability to commercialize the AUGMENT treatment and our potential treatments, including the OvaPrime treatment, on the timelines we expect, if at all; as well as those risks more fully discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of our most recently filed Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or Annual Report on Form 10-K. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release reflect our current views with respect to future events.
