("Futura" or the "Company")

Pre-launch of MED3000 Eroxon(TM) ahead of H1 2023 launch

Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM), a pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of innovative products based on its proprietary, transdermal DermaSys(R) drug delivery technology and currently focused on sexual health and pain, announces that its partner, Cooper Consumer Health ("Cooper") has initiated pre-launch activities ahead of the launch of MED3000 (Eroxon(TM)), Futura's breakthrough, topical gel formulation for the treatment of erectile dysfunction ("ED").

In May 2022, Futura announced an exclusive licensing agreement with Cooper, a leading International independent self-care organisation for the rights to commercialise MED3000 throughout the EEA, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

Futura is pleased to confirm that Cooper is on track to launch Eroxon (TM) in the first half of 2023, as previously guided, and has already commenced pre-launch activities and expects the first product supplies to be available in the coming months.

James Barder, Chief Executive Officer of Futura Medical said: "As part of our close strategic partnership with Cooper, we are pleased to note that as planned, Eroxon will soon be made available to men suffering from ED, especially those with mild and moderate ED, to improve their erectile performance in a fast, safe, effective and accessible way. We look forward to updating the market further in due course."

MED3000 is the first pan-European topical treatment for ED available without the need of a doctor's prescription and available over the counter ("OTC"). Subject to US Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") granting Marketing Authorisation, MED3000 has the potential to become the first major ED treatment available OTC throughout the USA.

Futura has established a network of licensing and distribution partners with strength in brand building, pharmaceutical credibility and regional infrastructure and marketing expertise for long-term distribution of MED3000 Eroxon(TM) across the globe.

To date, Futura has signed commercial agreements in key markets including; European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom, the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) region, Switzerland and South Korea, and now has a strong and expanding distribution platform in place for regions outside the key US market. As announced in December Futura's corporate advisors formally commenced the search for a US commercial partner and continue to be engaged in a number of ongoing discussions.
