Generex Plans Rights Offering to Stockholders Following Reverse Stock Split

WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Generex Biotechnology Corporation (Nasdaq: GNBT) ( today announced that it plans to initiate a rights offering of common stock and warrants to its existing stockholders in the event that the stockholders approve a reverse stock split at the reconvened special meeting of stockholders scheduled for 10 a.m. EDT on Friday, October 15, 2010.  The amount of the offering has not been determined, but is anticipated to permit an aggregate investment of at least $25,000,000.  Certain warrant holders also will have the right to participate in the offering.

Generex is preparing to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission forthwith following stockholder approval of a reverse stock split.  Generex expects the commencement of the offering and the distribution of rights to occur promptly following effectiveness of the registration statement.  Generex expects to use the proceeds from the rights offering primarily to fund its on-going research & development and product commercialization initiatives and the proposed acquisition of Global Medical Direct, LLC.

The record date for the distribution of the rights and the dates for both the subscription period and the expiration of the rights offering will be included in the final prospectus.  Under the proposed terms of the rights offering, Generex would distribute one right to each holder of record of every share of its common stock that is held on the record date.  Each transferable right will entitle the stockholder to purchase one unit at a subscription price to be determined prior to the effective date of the registration statement.  Each unit will consist of one share of common stock and two warrants to purchase additional shares of common stock.This press release does not constitute an offer of any securities for sale or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.

Forward-Looking Statements This press release includes statements about future economic performance, finances, expectations, plans and prospects of Generex that constitute forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These statements are based on Generex's current plans, estimates and expectations.  Some forward-looking statements may be identified by use of terms such as "anticipate," "expect," "plan," "may," "should," "could," "will," "continue," "estimate," and similar words, terms or statements of a future or forward-looking nature.  Such forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by such statements.  Risks and uncertainties relating to the proposed offering include the risks that: (1) Generex will not obtain the stockholder approval of the reverse stock split; (2) the reverse stock split, if implemented, will fail to have the desired effect of sufficiently raising the common stock price to meet The Nasdaq Capital Market's $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing of Generex's stock; and (3) the anticipated benefits of the right offering will not be realized.  No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future results or events, and one should avoid placing undue reliance on such statements.  Generex undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Generex claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements that is contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act.
