Helix Announces Shareholder Approval for the Sale of Its Rivex Pharma Division to Pharmascience and Other Results of Its Annual General and Special Meeting

AURORA, ON -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Helix BioPharma Corp. (TSX: HBP) (FRANKFURT: HBP) ("Helix"), a biopharmaceutical company developing drug candidates for the prevention and treatment of cancer, announces that its Annual General and Special Meeting (the "Shareholder Meeting") was held today as scheduled.

At the Shareholder Meeting, Helix received approval of 100% of the votes cast by shareholders present, in person or by proxy, for the special resolution approving the sale of its Rivex Pharma division to Pharmascience Inc. ("Pharmascience") for gross cash proceeds of up to $8.5 million, subject to adjustment (the "Rivex Transaction").

Robert Verhagen, Chief Executive Officer, said of the result, "We are pleased that Helix's shareholders have provided such a strong endorsement of the Rivex Transaction. The transaction will enable Helix to focus its management and financial resources on its cancer therapeutics products, including its ongoing clinical trial with L-DOS47, a drug candidate for treatment of non-small cell lung cancer." The Rivex Transaction was initially announced by Helix via news release on December 10, 2012 and remains subject to certain customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close on January 25, 2013.

Shareholders approved the election of William B. White, Robert A. Verhagen, Mario Gobbo, Marek Orlowski, Slawomir Majewski, John A. Rogers and Slawomir Ludwikowski as directors at the Shareholder Meeting. Shareholders also approved a special resolution approving an amendment to Helix's Articles moving Helix's registered office to Ontario.

KPMG LLP, Chartered Accountants, were appointed as auditors. However, a significant percentage of proxies received prior to the Shareholder Meeting withheld from voting on the appointment of auditors. The board of directors expects to meet with shareholders in the near future to better understand the reasons for this action, and the board will take appropriate action based on these discussions with shareholders.

At a board meeting held after the Shareholder Meeting, the newly-elected directors considered the structure of the board and the composition of the board committees. Mr. Gobbo was appointed as Chair of the new board.

"It has been a privilege to serve as Chair over the last ten months," said Mr. White. "Now that the business has stabilized, it is time to work on the next phase of Helix's development. I look forward to continuing my work as a director on the board."

"I thank Bill for his leadership," said Mr. Gobbo, "and I look forward to working with the board and management on the development and funding of Helix's proprietary technologies."
