Fasc. 2, 1973, pag. 185-195 Noordhoff International Publishing Printed in the Netherlands The ex-homotopy category has been investigated in recent years by I. M. James, J. Becker, L. Smith, J. F. McClendon, C. A. Robinson and others. In [5 ] I. M. James develops homotopy theory for ex-spaces as far as Puppe sequences, and in [6] he examines the Puppe sequence in a special case in order to calculate ex-homotopy groups. Further developments are hampered by the fact that no sufficiently helpful homology theory for ex-spaces is known. In this paper we obviate the need for one and use results from [2] and [3 ] to derive an EHP-se- quence. The technique is to mimic globally the constructions of ordinary homotopy theory and then to apply comparison theorems to deduce theorems in exhomotopy theory from the corresponding theorems in or- dinary homotopy theory. As an example of our main result we calculate in § 6 some ex-homotopy groups involving the Hopf bundle which, to my knowledge, were not previously obtainable. 1 am most grateful to Professor James for his help and encouragement during the preparation of this work. Throughout the paper we consider only Hausdor
