FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS    Certain statements in this presentation are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including statements regarding: future monetization opportunities, active transactions with significant financial implications, collaborations poised for significant financial contribution, our library of value-generating assets, future potential for milestone and royalty payments, the potential of our unique antibody discovery engine, potential licensing of compounds in our endocrine asset pipeline, the prospects for our XOMA 213 asset for treatment of prolactinemia, the ability of our partners and their licensees to successfully develop their pipeline programs, the productivity of acquired assets that may not fulfill our revenue forecasts, upcoming internal milestones and value catalysts, our future cash needs, our strategy for value creation, and other statements that relate to future periods. These statements are based on assumptions that may not prove accurate, and actual results could differ materially from those anticipated due to certain risks inherent in the biotechnology industry and for companies engaged in the development of new products in a regulated market. Potential risks to XOMA meeting    these expectations are described in more detail in XOMA’s most recent filing on Form 10-K and in other SEC filings. Consider such risks carefully when considering XOMA’s prospects. Any forward-looking statements represent XOMA’s views only as of the date of this presentation and should not be relied upon as representing its views as of any subsequent date. XOMA disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required by law. 2
