Cell Therapeutics Retires 7.5% Convertible Senior Notes
Date:5/1/2011

SEATTLE, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. ("CTI") (NASDAQ and MTA: CTIC) today announced that it has deposited $10.6 million in cash as trust funds with U.S. Bank National Association, as the trustee of the outstanding 7.5% convertible senior notes (the "Notes"), which is an amount sufficient to pay and discharge the entire amount due on the Notes, including accrued and unpaid interest.  

"Due to our successful efforts last year that resulted in a significant reduction of our debt, along with the retirement of the Notes, there now remains only one series of convertible senior notes on the balance sheet.  We plan to retire the remaining outstanding convertible senior notes at maturity in December 2011, which would leave CTI free of any remaining convertible debt," said James A. Bianco, M.D., CEO of CTI.
