MorphoSys (FSE: MOR; Prime Standard Segment; MDAX & TecDAX; NASDAQ: MOR)
announced today the opening of its new U.S. headoffice. Based in Boston, MA,
one of the world's leading innovation and biotech hubs, the new location
will enable MorphoSys to establish and expand its U.S. presence in advance
of the potential commercialization of it first wholly-owned drug candidate,

Robert Coughlin, CEO of the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (Mass BIO),
members from the Boston Mayor's Office, and members from the Massachusetts
Life Science Center (MLSC) attended today's reception and ribbon cutting
ceremony to inaugurate the new U.S. headquarter, located at 470 Atlantic
Avenue, at the Boston habor waterfront.

"As we continue our transformation from a technology provider to a fully
integrated biopharmaceutical company, expanding our presence in the U.S.

work towards a U.S. launch of tafasitamab by mid-2020," says Dr. Jean-Paul
Kress, Chief Executive Officer of MorphoSys. "The opening of our Boston
headoffice provides the basis for us to achieve our long-term U.S. goals.
I'd like to thank our distinguished guests for celebrating with us today."

"We chose Boston for our U.S. office for its long history of incubating and
encouraging biotech innovation," comments David Trexler, MorphoSys Head of
U.S. Operations. "The location clearly represents our culture of quality and
empowering each other."
