NeoStem Announces 1-for-10 Reverse Split

NEW YORK, July 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeoStem, Inc. (NYSE MKT:NBS) ("NeoStem" or the "Company"), a leader in the emerging cell therapy market, announced that it is effecting a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its common stock which will be effective for trading purposes as of the commencement of trading on July 16, 2013. As of that date, each 10 shares of issued and outstanding common stock and equivalents will be converted into 1 share of common stock. In addition, at the market open on July 16, 2013, the common stock will trade under a new CUSIP number 640650404 although the Company's ticker symbol, NBS, will remain unchanged.

The number of outstanding common shares will be reduced from 196,643,748 to approximately 19.7 million. The number of authorized shares and the par value per share will remain unchanged. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Holders of fractional shares will be paid out in cash for the fractional portion with the Company's overall exposure for such payouts consisting of a nominal amount. The number of outstanding options and warrants will be adjusted accordingly, with outstanding options being reduced from 26,366,633 to approximately 2.6 million and outstanding warrants being reduced from 54,297,826 to approximately 5.4 million. NeoStem stockholders will receive instructions from its transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company, as to procedures for exchanging existing stock certificates for new certificates or book-entry shares and for the receipt of cash proceeds in lieu of fractional shares.

Dr. Robin L. Smith, Chairman and CEO of NeoStem stated, "Over the last few months we have had numerous discussions with investors, advisors and our board about our capital structure. We have also observed that, over the past five years, a number of our peer companies in the regenerative medicine sector have effected reverse stock splits. We believe the resulting increase in share price will demonstrate the true value of NeoStem's common stock and broaden the appeal of our shares to investors, particularly institutional stockholders."
