   Delcath Systems, Inc: DELCATH SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC REORGANZATION

              Company Implements Plan to Reduce Operating Costs;

         Expected Cash Spend for Q32013 Lower than Previous Guidance

New York, NY  - October 4,  2013 -  Delcath Systems, Inc.  (NASDAQ: DCTH),  a 
specialty pharmaceutical  and  medical  device company  focused  on  oncology, 
announced  today  that  as   part  of  its   efforts  to  increase   operating 
efficiencies, the Company has completed a strategic reorganization under which
it has eliminated 21 positions, or approximately 33% of its global  workforce. 
The Company expects this reorganization, in conjunction with other cost saving
measures, to significantly lower cash utilization.

For its fiscal third quarter 2013, the Company expects cash utilization to  be 
between $7.0-8.0 million, as  compared to its  previous guidance of  $9.0-10.0 
million for  the period.  For  its fiscal  fourth  quarter 2013,  the  Company 
currently expects cash  utilization to  be at the  lower end  of its  previous 
guidance of $6.0-8.0  million. Additionally,  as a result  of the  initiatives 
implemented over the past  three weeks, the Company  expects to reduce  annual 
operating costs by approximately $10 million. The Company believes that  these 
actions will help  preserve the  Company's ability to  initiate the  strategic 
objectives currently under  evaluation. Most  of the savings  are expected  to 
come from marketing, administrative expenses and research and development.  As 
of September, 30  2013, the  Company estimates  cash and  cash equivalents  of 
approximately $28 million.
