ANI Pharmaceuticals Announces Name Change And Reverse Stock Split

BAUDETTE, Minn., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANIP) announced today the change of its name from BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc.   In connection with the name change, ANI also changed its trading symbol on the NASDAQ Global Market to "ANIP." ANI furthermore announced that its Board of Directors yesterday approved a reverse split of its common stock and Class C special stock at a ratio of one share for every six shares of stock outstanding, and a proportional decrease in ANI's authorized common stock, Class C special stock and preferred stock. The changes  became effective at 5:01 pm, Eastern Time, on July 17, 2013, and followed the approval by the stockholders of the reverse split and name change. 

Arthur S. Przybyl, President and CEO, stated: "The name change to ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is representative of the post-merger transition of the company from a biotech company to a specialty-branded and generic pharmaceutical company. ANI has a well-capitalized balance sheet, growing revenue base, and a focused product development pipeline."

At the effective time of the reverse split, every six shares of common stock issued and outstanding were automatically combined into one share of common stock and every six shares of Class C special stock issued and outstanding were automatically combined into one share of Class C special stock. No fractional shares are being issued as a result of the reverse split. In lieu of fractional shares, common stock holders will receive cash in an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) $1.07, the closing sale price per share of the common stock on July 17, 2013 as reported on NASDAQ by (ii) the number of shares of common stock held by the stockholder that would otherwise have been exchanged for the fractional share interest. Further, any options, warrants and rights outstanding as of the effective time that are subject to the reverse split will be adjusted consistent with the terms of those options, warrants and rights. The Company's common stock is trading under a new CUSIP number after the reverse split.

To the extent any statements made in this release deal with information that is not historical, these are forward-looking statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the potential benefits of the merger, the combined company's plans, objectives, expectations and intentions with respect to future operations and products, the anticipated financial position, operating results and growth prospects of the combined company and other statements that are not historical in nature, particularly those that utilize terminology such as "anticipates," "will," "expects," "plans," "potential," "future," "believes," "intends," "continue," other words of similar meaning, derivations of such words and the use of future dates. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. Uncertainties and risks may cause the combined company's actual results to be materially different than those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. Particular uncertainties and risks include, among others, the risk that the proposed reverse stock split will not result in an increase in the per share market price for the common stock in the amount necessary and for the minimum period necessary to enable ANI to comply with the applicable NASDAQ minimum bid price requirement, or that NASDAQ may not grant ANI's request for initial listing. Any of these events could cause ANI´s common stock to be delisted from the NASDAQ Global Market.
