Date:2/8/2010

PRINCETON, NJ, Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - NUCRYST Pharmaceuticals Corp. ("Nucryst") (TSX:NCS / NASDAQ:NCST) today is pleased to announce the completion of the previously announced amalgamation (the "Amalgamation") of Nucryst with 1499642 Alberta Ltd. ("1499642"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Westaim Corporation ("Westaim"), pursuant to an Amalgamation Agreement dated as of November 10, 2009, as amended (the "Amalgamation Agreement"). The resolution approving the Amalgamation was approved at the Special Meeting of Shareholders reconvened and concluded on February 8, 2010 and the Amalgamation was effected by the filing of Articles of Amalgamation thereafter.

Pursuant to the Amalgamation Agreement, NUCRYST was amalgamated with 1499642 to form Westaim Holdings Limited ("Amalco"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Westaim. Amalco will continue as the surviving company and will succeed to and assume all the rights and obligations of Nucryst.

Further, pursuant to the Amalgamation Agreement, each issued and outstanding NUCRYST share, other than those held by Westaim, was converted into one series 1 preferred share of Amalco, which is redeemable for cash consideration of U.S.$1.77. Each issued and outstanding NUCRYST share held by Westaim was converted into one common share of Amalco. With the Amalgamation completed, Amalco intends to delist Nucryst shares from the TSX and NASDAQ stock exchanges and remove Nucryst shares from registration under applicable securities laws.

In order to receive the redemption consideration of U.S.$1.77 per share, shareholders should follow the instructions set forth under "Information Regarding the Amalgamation-Redemption Procedure" in the Notice and Information Circular dated November 25, 2009 previously delivered to shareholders in connection with the Special Meeting of Shareholders and filed with securities authorities in Canada on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on December 1, 2009 as Exhibit (a)(1) to the Schedule 13E-3 Transaction Statement filed by Nucryst, Westaim and 1499642. NUCRYST shares may be redeemed at any time prior to the fifth anniversary of the Amalgamation.

The Amalgamation follows the sale by Nucryst of substantially all of its assets pursuant to an asset purchase agreement dated November 10, 2009, as amended, among Nucryst, NUCRYST Pharmaceuticals Inc., Smith & Nephew Inc. and Smith & Nephew (Overseas) Limited.
