ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novavax, Inc.

The Company sold 6,686,650 units to certain current and new institutional shareholders and certain affiliates of the Company. Each unit was comprised of one share of common stock and a warrant to purchase 0.5 shares of common stock and was sold at a purchase price of $2.68 per unit (or $2.8425 per unit for units sold to affiliates of the Company). The warrants, which represent the right to acquire 3,343,325 shares of common stock, will be exercisable at a price of $3.62 per share and have a five year term. The Company completed the financing without using the services of a placement agent or underwriter. Net proceeds of the offering after expenses are expected to be $17.6 million.

This offering was made pursuant to an existing effective shelf registration statement and was made directly by the Company. A prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on July 29, 2008 and may be obtained at the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov.

About Novavax

Novavax, Inc. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company creating novel vaccines to address a broad range of infectious diseases worldwide using advanced proprietary virus-like particle (VLP) technology. The Company creates VLPs by genetically engineering three-dimensional, nanostructures, which incorporate immunologically important lipids and recombinant proteins.

Novavax's VLPs resemble a virus but lack the genetic material that would cause infection. Using the Company's proprietary VLP technologies, Novavax is developing vaccines to protect against H5N1 pandemic influenza, seasonal flu and other viral diseases. The Company also utilizes a unique portable manufacturing system that allows for rapid production of vaccines requiring less infrastructure and represents a potential simpler and more efficient approach to vaccine production. Additional information about Novavax is available at http://www.novavax.com and in the Company's various filings with the SEC.
