ROCKVILLE, Md. -- June 17, 2013

Lansing, Michigan Mayor Virg Bernero and senior executives from Emergent
BioSolutions Inc. (NYSE:EBS) today held a ribbon cutting ceremony to
commemorate the formal opening of a new administration building at Emergent’s
Michigan campus. The 32,000 sq. ft. building marks the new entrance to the
company’s 12.5-acre site and symbolizes Emergent’s commitment to its employees
and to growth in the community.

“The addition of Building 63 represents our continued commitment to our role
as premier supplier of medical countermeasures as well as our steady growth
and investment in the Lansing community,” said Fuad El-Hibri, executive
chairman of the board, Emergent BioSolutions. “Emergent has achieved many
milestones since its founding in 1998, each unique and a source of pride. What
is truly most rewarding, however, is to witness the dedication of our
employees to our corporate mission – to protect life.”

Emergent employs over 850 employees across the globe, with more than 450
employees located in Lansing, where the company was founded 15 years ago. The
new building consists of office space, conference rooms, collaboration spaces,
and workout and dining facilities. The company continues to make investments
at the Lansing site, which have included a new manufacturing building in 2006,
a new testing facility in 2012 and now a new administration building. Future
expansion potentially includes a new warehouse facility as well as a science
building.

“The City of Lansing recognizes Emergent’s positive contribution to the
community,” said Mayor Bernero.“Emergent helps Michigan as a whole maintain
its status as a leader in the manufacturing sector and brings high paid, high
skilled jobs to the area. I am proud of the work that is being done here in
Lansing that helps keep Americans healthy and safe.”
