Date:10/17/2011

NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoStem, Inc. (NYSE Amex: NBS) ("NeoStem" or the "Company"), an international biopharmaceutical company with a focus on cell-based therapeutic development, and Amorcyte Inc., a development stage cell therapy company focusing on novel treatments for cardiovascular disease, announced today the closing of their previously announced merger transaction following approval by the shareholders of both companies on October 14, 2011.  NeoStem, which closed on a financing raising $16.5 million in gross proceeds on July 22, 2011, intends to initiate, no later than the first quarter of 2012, a Phase 2 clinical trial for Amorcyte's lead product candidate, AMR-001, for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI).

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, NeoStem (i) issued 5,843,483 shares as the base stock consideration; (ii) will issue up to 4,092,768 shares of common stock upon the achievement of certain specified business milestones; (iii) issued warrants to purchase 1,881,008 shares of common stock exercisable over a seven year period at a price of $1.466 per share; and (iv) upon the successful commercialization of AMR-001 will pay certain earn out payments on sales.  The shares of common stock issued and underlying the warrants are subject to certain transfer restrictions.

Of the approximately 800,000 Americans who suffer an AMI each year, approximately 20%, or 160,000 patients, remain at risk for progressive deterioration in heart muscle function and, as a consequence, increased risk for future major adverse cardiac events. AMR-001 targets treatment of this unmet medical need.

AMR-001 is an autologous, bone marrow-derived, pharmaceutical grade cell-based product that uses a cell population enriched for CD34+CXCR4+ cells. Studies have shown that these cells act as a natural repair mechanism, releasin
