Biophan Technologies, Inc.

Biophan Closes Key Technology Sale; Files to Discontinue Reporting Obligations

PITTSFORD, NY | Posted on July 22nd, 2009

"Biophan will focus its efforts on transactions that enable its remaining technologies to reach the market," said John Lanzafame, chief executive officer. "One example of this is the recently announced transaction with MyoCardioCare, Inc."

The company sold the technology associated with its innovative circulatory support system, the Myotech CSS, to MyoCardioCare. As a condition of the sale, Biophan received a 20 percent interest in MyoCardioCare in addition to a cash purchase price of $250,000, and is allowing Lanzafame to manage the technology's transition to the new company as its interim president.

"Biophan remains committed to its mission of monetizing its patent-protected technologies," Lanzafame said. "We will aggressively pursue opportunities that result in optimal outcomes for our technologies and our shareholders."

Following the Form 15 filing, the company will no longer file an annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q or current reports on Form 8-K, or continue to make any further Section 16 filings. The Biophan board of directors unanimously resolved to take this action to conserve its cash resources. Other actions taken by the board in this regard include management and staff reductions.

"The board's decision best positions the company to weather current economic difficulties as we continue to push our technologies to market, whether directly by us, or through strategic partnerships," Lanzafame said. The Company retains a number of novel technologies, including the biothermal power supply, pulsewidth modulation technology to improve the performance and life of pacemakers and neurostimulators, and portfolios of both photonics and nanomaterials patents.

Biophan will endeavor to keep its shareholders informed about its efforts and progress regarding the commercialization of its remaining technologies through postings on the company's Web site.
