BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Sends Letter Urging Stockholders To Vote “FOR” Proposed Merger With ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

The BioSante board of directors URGES you to vote promptly “FOR” the proposed merger. The time needed to vote is short and you can provide your vote easily by phone, over the Internet or by mail. If you have received a request for voting instructions from your broker, we urge you promptly to provide those instructions-- if you do not, it is the same as a vote “AGAINST” the proposed merger. The new voting deadline is midnight, Eastern Time, on April 11, 2013.

On behalf of your board of directors, we thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

/s/ Louis W. Sullivan, M.D.

Chairman of the Board

BioSante stockholders who need assistance in voting their shares or who have questions regarding BioSante’s special meeting may contact The BioSante Proxy Information Line toll-free at (800) 357-9167 or AST Phoenix Advisors at (877) 478-5038 (international stockholders, please call (201) 806-7323).

About the Proposed Merger

Under the terms of the merger agreement, if the proposed merger is completed, ANI will merge with and into BioSante, with BioSante continuing as the surviving company. The combined company that will result from the merger will be a fully integrated specialty branded and generic pharmaceutical company focused on developing, manufacturing and marketing branded and generic prescription pharmaceuticals. BioSante and ANI both believe that the merger of the two companies will be able to create more value than either company could achieve individually.

BioSante stockholders are encouraged to read the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus as it provides, among other things, a detailed discussion of ANI, the proposed merger, the merger agreement and the process that led to the proposed merger.
