ADVENTRX Reverse Split Effective; Trading on Adjusted Basis Begins Today

SAN DIEGO, April 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ANX) today announced that the Company's previously announced 1-for-25 reverse stock split is now effective, and the Company's common stock will begin trading on a split adjusted basis on the NYSE Amex when the market opens today.

The reverse stock split is intended to satisfy the NYSE Amex's determination, as previously communicated to the Company, that it is appropriate for the Company to effect a reverse stock split to address its low trading price per share and that, if a reverse stock split is not completed within a reasonable amount of time, the NYSE Amex may initiate delisting procedures. The Company also believes that a higher share price could broaden ADVENTRX's appeal to investors, in addition to reducing per share transaction fees and certain administrative costs.

The 1-for-25 reverse split reduces the number of shares of the Company's common stock outstanding from approximately 257 million to approximately 10.3 million. Proportional adjustments have been made to ADVENTRX's outstanding stock options, warrants and other equity awards and to its equity compensation plans. Par value and the number of authorized shares of common stock have not changed.  The Company will not issue any fractional shares. Stockholders will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares to which they would otherwise be entitled.

Registered holders of ADVENTRX common stock will receive a letter of transmittal from the Company's transfer agent, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, with instructions for the exchange of their old stock certificates or the electronic adjustment of their holdings through the direct registration system, as applicable, and payment of cash in lieu of any fractional share. Registered holders may contact American Stock Transfer and Trust Company at (877) 248-6417 with questions regarding the exchange process. Stockholders with shares in brokerage accounts will be contacted by their brokers with instructions.
