Neoprobe Corporation To Change Company Name To Navidea Biopharmaceuticals

Neoprobe Corporation (NYSE Amex: NEOP), today announced that it will change its name to Navidea Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. The Company is also scheduled to begin trading under a new ticker symbol (NAVB) on the NYSE Amex exchange at market open on January 5, 2012.

In connection with the sale of the neoprobe ® GDS medical device business and related brand name (Neoprobe) to Devicor Medical Products in August 2011, the Company commenced a corporate re-branding initiative reflecting its business pursuits in the precision diagnostics space. Navidea was chosen as the new name to reflect the Company’s dedication to “NAVigating IDEAs” that translate cutting edge innovation and precision diagnostics technology into novel products to advance patient care.

"Our new corporate identity signifies the Company's transformation into a biopharmaceutical company focused on development and commercialization of precision radiopharmaceutical diagnostics for cancer and other significant disease areas,” said Dr. Mark Pykett, Neoprobe President and CEO. “We plan to reveal a more complete view of the Navidea brand and an updated website in January in connection with the legal change in our corporate name and as we begin trading under our new ticker symbol, NAVB. In the meantime, we wanted to provide advance notice of the change. As Navidea, we will continue to focus our efforts on the approval and commercialization of Lymphoseek ® and on our development efforts surrounding RIGScan™. In addition, we plan to actively move forward with other pipeline development opportunities, including the in-licensing or acquisition of other promising agents.”
