Northwest Biotherapeutics Settles Class Action Complaint, and SEC Investigation Closed Without Action
Date:1/8/2009

BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Northwest Biotherapeutics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NWBO; AIM: NWBS and NWBT) (the "Company" or "NWBT") announced today settlement of a putative securities class action lawsuit, In re Northwest Biotherapeutics, Inc. Securities Litigation, No. C-07-1254-RAJ. The Company has agreed to pay in settlement US$1 million, which is to be funded out of insurance proceeds. The settlement must be approved by the Court. Additional details about the settlement can be found in the formal settlement documents, which are available from the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington. The case alleged that the Company misrepresented certain facts that resulted in the artificial inflation of the price of Northwest Biotherapeutics publicly-traded common stock between April 17, 2007 and July 18, 2007. The Company disputes the allegations of the lawsuit, and denies that there was any such misrepresentation or that the shares of Northwest Biotherapeutics common stock were artificially inflated. Nevertheless the Company is settling the lawsuit to avoid potentially expensive and protracted litigation.

The Company also announced today that the formal investigation by the SEC into these matters has been closed without any action taken.

Dr. Alton Boynton, CEO of Northwest Biotherapeutics, stated that, "We are pleased to have settled this litigation, and we believe this outcome is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. Of course, we are also pleased to have the SEC investigation behind us."

The Company will need to raise additional capital to fund its clinical trials and other operating activities and to repay indebtedness in due course. Shareholders should be aware that if the Company's capital raising efforts are unsuccessful, this will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position and operations.
