Galectin Therapeutics Reports Full Year And Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Galectin Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: GALT), the leading developer of therapeutics that target galectin proteins to treat fibrosis and cancer, today reported its financial results for the full year and fourth quarter, ended December 31, 2011. These results are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which has been filed with the SEC.

On March 28, 2012, Galectin Therapeutics sold 2,666,722 shares of its common stock and related warrants to purchase 1,333,361 shares of common stock for gross proceeds of $12.0 million (net proceeds of approximately $10.5 million). Each warrant has an exercise price of $5.63 per share and is exercisable until March 28, 2017. On March 23, 2012, the Company effected a one-for-six reverse split of its common stock and began trading on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol GALT.

“Galectin Therapeutics has made very significant progress in our development programs and in our operations over the past year,” said Peter G. Traber, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, President and Chief Medical Officer, Galectin Therapeutics. “Our GR-MD-02 compound has demonstrated the ability to arrest and reverse liver fibrosis in several preclinical disease models, including fatty liver disease (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH). We are now conducting preclinical studies with the aim of entering clinical trials for NASH in 2012. This program has the unique potential to offer a new treatment for NASH or liver fibrosis, for which the only current treatment option is liver transplantation.”

Traber continued, “Galectin Therapeutics also recently raised significant capital and completed a listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The proceeds from this financing will support the continued advancement of our portfolio of galectin inhibitors while the broader listing will offer the Company and its shareholders greater stability and liquidity. We are now in a very solid position to execute on our strategic objectives and look forward to data from our programs in NASH as well as cancer immunotherapy in 2012.”
