BioSante Pharmaceuticals And ANI Pharmaceuticals Announce Completion Of Merger

BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: BPAX) announced today that it has completed the merger of its wholly-owned subsidiary with and into ANIP Acquisition Company d/b/a ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ANI) in accordance with the terms of the amended and restated agreement and plan of merger, dated as of April 12, 2013. In connection with the merger, BioSante issued to the holders of ANI series D convertible preferred stock an aggregate of 32,814,504 shares of BioSante common stock, representing approximately 57 percent of the outstanding shares of BioSante common stock immediately following the merger.

Arthur S. Przybyl, BioSante's new president and chief executive officer stated, "I'm excited to announce the completion of our merger. This merger is the catalyst for potential future growth. We now have a strong balance sheet with over $10 million in cash and no debt. We expect to utilize the incremental cash available to us as a result of this merger in two ways: to accelerate our product development efforts and for potential accretive acquisitions. We do not expect to need this cash to fund day-to-day operations. In addition, we expect to receive royalty payments from sales of our FDA-approved testosterone gel product that is partnered with Teva, while exploring opportunities to derive value from BioSante's other assets, including LibiGel ®. Our entire team is eager to continue building BioSante as an integrated specialty branded and generic pharmaceutical company for the benefit of our stakeholders."

Mr. Przybyl continued, “In 2007 we acquired two manufacturing facilities and their related contract manufacturing business that became the catalyst to launch our own prescription product line. In 2008 we launched the ANI label and we have steadily increased our annual prescription product revenues while continuing to execute on our contract manufacturing business. We currently manufacture and market seven prescription products that we either developed internally or acquired. ANDAs for five additional generic products are pending at the FDA and we expect to submit six additional ANDAs in the remainder of 2013. These eleven generic products address a total annual market size of approximately $760 million, based on data from IMS Health."
