Date:1/28/2011

SAN MARINO, Calif., Jan. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Viral Genetics, Inc., (Pinksheets: VRAL) and its President, Haig Keledjian, have entered into a binding Release and Settlement Agreement with Timothy and Thomas LLC ("T&T") and its principals (the "Settlement") that was approved by the court. The Settlement ends the almost 5-year-old lawsuit between the parties that was before the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, originally initiated in March 2006, dismissing all claims without admission of liability by any party. Separately, the Company has also paid or settled all legal fees incurred as a result of this litigation during the last several years.

"We are pleased to put this arduous and time-consuming process behind us as we are now completely free to focus on the development of our drug candidates and our new VG Energy subsidiary," said Haig Keledjian, President. "Reacquiring the development and marketing rights to Africa for our HIV/AIDS products is an important result of this settlement given the size of the HIV epidemic in that region and our past level of development there."  

As part of the Settlement the Company terminated the Distribution Management Agreement (the "DMA") with T&T that was the subject of the lawsuit, effectively reacquiring the rights to develop and market HIV/AIDS products in Africa that had previously been granted to T&T for a period of twenty years. In consideration for the DMA's termination, the Company agreed to pay to T&T over the course of three years and pursuant to a Convertible Debenture (the "Debenture") a total of $1,900,000 as follows: $1,000,000 by November 1, 2011; $450,000 by November 1, 2012; and $450,000 by November 1, 2013.

Under the Debenture and subject to certain terms and conditions, at the Company's option it can elect to make these installment payments in cash or in shares of common stock. The conversion price for a payment in shares is equ
