Telik Announces Reverse Split Of Common Stock

PALO ALTO, Calif., March, 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Telik, Inc. (NASDAQ: TELK) today announced a 1-for-30 reverse split of its common stock.  Telik's common stock will begin trading on a post-split basis on the NASDAQ Capital Market on April 2, 2012.  The reverse split is expected to enable the Company to meet the $1.00 minimum bid price required for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. 

At the effective time of the reverse split, every 30 shares of the Company's pre-split common stock, including shares subject to outstanding stock options and shares available for grant under the Company's stock options plans, will automatically be combined into one share of the Company's post-split capital stock.  The reverse split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not affect any stockholder's ownership percentage, except that stockholders will receive cash in lieu of any fractional shares based on today's closing price on NASDAQ.  The Company's transfer agent will provide instructions to stockholders regarding the process for exchanging shares.  Upon completion of the reverse split, there will be approximately 1,816,376 shares of Telik's common stock outstanding.  Additional information regarding the reverse split can be found in Telik's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 5, 2012.  The Company today filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the reverse split.

In addition, the Company expects to undertake a re-alignment of its spending priorities, focusing on the clinical development of its lead product candidate, Telintra®, and reducing annual operating expenses by approximately $2.5 million over the Company's February guidance of $12 to $13 million for 2012.
