Cyclacel Announces Reverse Stock Split

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Aug. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:CYCC) (Nasdaq:CYCCP) (Cyclacel or the Company), a biopharmaceutical company developing oral therapies that target the various phases of cell cycle control for the treatment of cancer and other serious disorders, today announced a 1-for-7 reverse stock split of its shares of common stock, which will be effected today at 5:00 pm. The reverse stock split, which was unanimously approved by the Company's Board of Directors, was previously approved by its shareholders at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 23, 2012.

As a result of the reverse stock split, every seven shares of common stock issued and outstanding prior to the opening of trading on August 27, 2012 will be consolidated into one issued and outstanding share. The reverse stock split reduces the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock from 59,009,553 shares to 8,429,936 shares. No fractional shares of common stock will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split, and any fractional shares will be paid in cash. Proportional adjustments will be made to Cyclacel's outstanding warrants and stock options. The Company's authorized shares will remain unchanged.

In addition, upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, the conversion price of Cyclacel's outstanding 6% convertible exchangeable preferred stock will be adjusted proportionally and automatically in accordance with the terms of the Company's Certificate of the Powers, Designations, Preferences and Rights of the 6% Convertible Exchangeable Preferred Stock.

The reverse stock split is intended to increase the per share trading price of the Company's shares of common stock to satisfy the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on the NASDAQ Global Market. As previously announced, in order to maintain the Company's listing on NASDAQ, on or before September 11, 2012, the Company's common stock must have a closing bid price of $1.00 or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days prior to September 11, 2012. There can be no assurance that the reverse stock split will have the desired effect of raising the closing bid price of the Company's common stock prior to September 11, 2012, to meet this requirement.
