Generex Secures Commitments for $3.6M Capital Raise

WORCESTER, Mass. and TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Generex Biotechnology Corporation (OTCBB: GNBT) announced today that it has secured two commitments for an aggregate capital raise of CA$3,600,000.  This funding is structured as term loans of one year from private lenders secured by the Company's real estate.  Interest on the loans is payable monthly at the rate of 10% per annum.

"This capital infusion will permit the Company to advance its redevelopment plans, and to do so in a manner that is not dilutive to our stockholders," commented Mark Fletcher, Generex's President & Chief Executive Officer.

The first loan, for an aggregate of CA$2,500,000, closed on January 19, 2012.  A portion of the Company's real estate is subject to a prior ranking mortgage in the approximate amount of CA$1,100,000.  A portion of the first loan equal to that amount has been placed in escrow pending discharge of the prior ranking mortgage.

The second loan, for an aggregate of CA$1,100,000, is designed to discharge the prior ranking mortgage.  The second loan is scheduled to close on or before January 30, 2012, whereupon the escrowed portion of the first loan will be released to the Company.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This release and oral statements made from time to time by Generex representatives in respect of the same subject matter may contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements can be identified by introductory words such as "expects," "plan," "believes," "will," "achieve," "anticipate," "would," "should," "subject to" or words of similar meaning, and by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements frequently are used in discussing potential product applications, potential collaborations, product development activities, clinical studies, regulatory submissions and approvals, and similar operating matters. Many factors may cause actual results to differ from forward-looking statements, including inaccurate assumptions and a broad variety of risks and uncertainties, some of which are known and others of which are not. Known risks and uncertainties include those identified from time to time in the reports filed by Generex with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which should be considered together with any forward-looking statement. 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 cannot be sure when or if it will be permitted by regulatory agencies to undertake additional clinical trials or to commence any particular phase of clinical trials. Because of this, statements regarding the expected timing of clinical trials or ultimate regulatory approval cannot be regarded as actual predictions of when Generex will obtain regulatory approval for any "phase" of clinical trials or when it will obtain ultimate regulatory approval by a particular regulatory agency. Generex claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements that is contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act.
