NexMed, Inc.

At the Special Meeting, the Stockholders of the Company approved, by an affirmative majority vote, to change the name of the Company from NexMed, Inc. to Apricus Biosciences, Inc.

Dr. Bassam Damaj, President and Chief Executive Officer of NexMed, commented, “Beginning with the acquisition of Bio-Quant by NexMed in late 2009, we have undertaken a number of positive changes that are expected to reshape the Company over the long-term. In particular, we have expanded our product pipeline, re-energized the development of the NexACT technology as a drug delivery platform and have begun active licensing efforts for both proprietary programs, as well as third party programs enhanced with the NexACT technology. Additionally, we have leveraged Bio-Quant’s CRO capabilities to help advance new applications for NexACT. The rebranding of the Company at this time is part of our broader effort to alert potential development partners and the investment community of our new business model.”
