Nuvilex Completes Acquisition Of Exclusive Worldwide Rights To Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Technology

SILVER SPRING, Md., July 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB:NVLX), (the "Company"), an international biotechnology company and provider of natural products and cell and gene therapy solutions for the treatment of diseases, announces today the completion of the acquisition of all of the shares of Bio Blue Bird AG ("BBB"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SG Austria Private Limited (SGA). As a result of this acquisition, BBB is now our wholly-owned subsidiary.

BBB owns exclusive worldwide licenses associated with the live-cell encapsulation-based pancreatic cancer treatment. These licenses include worldwide rights to utilize the live-cell encapsulation platform technology to develop treatments for any and all cancer types, regardless of the cell type encapsulated. As a result, the cells to be used for the pancreatic cancer trials are also protected by BBB's worldwide exclusive license. The funding to complete this acquisition was secured through the sale by the Company to accredited investors of $1.5 million in restricted stock at $0.125 per share. The total purchase price for BBB was $1.5 million.

The acquisition represents a substantial milestone in the development and structure of Nuvilex as a biotechnology company. The broad spectrum of uses that the license for the oncology platform covers will provide Nuvilex with significant growth opportunities in the future for various types of cancers, while complementing the Company's clinical research for pancreatic cancer.

Dr. Robert Ryan, President and Chief Executive Officer at Nuvilex, stated, "With the acquisition now complete, the assets and worldwide licenses are now officially a part of Nuvilex. It is our intention to expand our cancer treatment capabilities and to obtain additional assets to develop treatments for other serious diseases based on cell therapy and live-cell encapsulation."
