    HOMEX - Perth

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    BioProspect Limited ('BioProspect') is pleased to announce that it
    has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire from Southern Cross
    University ('SCU') the 49% held by it in Australian Phytochemicals
    Limited ('APL').

    The equity held by SCU in APL will be acquired for the issue of three
    million new ordinary shares in BioProspect.

    The philosophy driving this acquisition relates to the current status
    of Qcide and its rapid movement towards commerciality.

    APL holds 7.5% of the intellectual property in terms of net cash
    inflows from sales of Qcide. The acquisition provides now for
    BioProspect to have the equity to control all of the intellectual
    property and, as consequence of that, the cash flow which would be
    derived from the income stream which would have otherwise been
    attributable to APL thereby providing for a more streamlined profile
    for proposed international partners.

    In order to provide a smooth transition of scientific services for
    BioProspect, SCU will provide research and extract services from its
    existing Centre for Phytochemistry. This will provide continuity in
    respect of key members of staff, equipment and facilities.

    RESIGNATION OF PETER WATERMAN

    Professor Peter Waterman has resigned from the Board of BioProspect
    following his retirement from his position with SCU. However, he will
    continue as Scientific Adviser responsible for new science projects
    and continued research into projects such as the further development
    of Qcide and other new exciting discoveries. The Board of BioProspect
    is delighted that Professor Waterman has decided to continue his
    relationship which will enable him to focus on driving the Company's
    scientific processes.

    COST SAVINGS

    As a result of the foregoing initiatives BioProspect will enjoy
    annual cost savings in excess of $500,000 per annum.

    The above arrangements are subject to the finalisation of
    documentation and will be effective from 1 August 2002.
