Nastech to Establish Subsidiary, MDRNA, Inc., as an Independent Company to Focus on the Development of RNA-Based Therapeutics
Date:11/13/2007

BOTHELL, Wash., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nastech Pharmaceutical Company Inc. ("Nastech") (Nasdaq: NSTK) announced today that the Board of Directors has approved the recommendation of its Special Committee to move forward with the process of establishing Nastech's wholly-owned subsidiary, MDRNA, Inc. ("MDRNA"), as an independent company. Nastech is transferring its intellectual property and agreements related to RNA interference ("RNAi") into MDRNA. The new structure will give Nastech the ability to pursue independent investment to fund MDRNA's operations. Nastech plans to pursue such funding in the near-term, subject to market conditions, and expects to retain significant ownership in MDRNA following such financing. In addition, Nastech intends, subject to change based on market conditions or future change in strategy, to thereafter issue a dividend to Nastech's shareholders of a portion of the MDRNA equity held by Nastech, and to effect the public trading of those securities through a Form 10 filing.

The establishment of MDRNA as an independent company will also allow it to be better compared and valued relative to other companies in the field of RNAi therapeutics.
