    ASX Announcement and Media Release
    31 July 2003
    SciGen Limited


    The company has released its Quarterly Cashflow report for the June 2003 quarter.
    Cash receipts from customers have increased to A$997,000 in the current quarter compared with
    A$398,000 for the previous quarter.

    Total Operating cashflows for the June quarter were a negative A$1.121M which is an improved
    position when compared with a negative A$2.444M in the previous quarter.
    An adverse impact on the cashflow statement for the June quarter is an exchange rate adjustment of
    A$1.460M which is a consequence of the strengthening Australian dollar.

    It should be noted that many of the material transactions of the company are conducted in $US and
    in addition the majority of the company.s cash reserves are held in $US. The stronger $A and the
    requirement to translate these amounts into $A for reporting purposes has resulted in this exchange
    rate adjustment. It should be emphasised that this exchange rate variance is unrealised. The
    company will continue to monitor these issues and take any appropriate action required to protect
    against such fluctuations on the basis of professional advice.
