BioSante Pharmaceuticals Announces $16.5 Million Private Placement of Common Stock

"We are pleased with this private placement, and are gratified to welcome new institutional investors to BioSante," said Stephen M. Simes, BioSante's president and chief executive officer. "We limited the private placement to the amount raised to minimize dilution to our existing stockholders, while adding to our cash balance."
The expected net proceeds of approximately $15.6 million will be used to continue and expand BioSante's previously announced Phase III clinical program of LibiGel® for treatment of female sexual dysfunction (FSD). The first of two Phase III safety and efficacy studies was initiated in December 2006. Based on its current cash balance and commitments, BioSante believes that with the net proceeds from this private placement, it should be able to maintain its current planned development activities and the corresponding level of expenditures through the end of 2008, although no assurance can be given that it will not need additional cash prior to such time.
The securities offered in this placement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or state securities laws, and cannot be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

This news release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities discussed herein and is being issued under Rule 135c of the Securities Act of 1933.
