GenVec Announces Dismissal Of Class Action Lawsuit
Date:9/23/2013

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GenVec, Inc. (NASDAQ: GNVC) today announced that the previously disclosed putative class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain of its current and former officers (the "Defendants") by the law firm of Brower Piven in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland has been dismissed with prejudice. No payment was made by any of the Defendants to the plaintiffs or their counsel in connection with the lawsuit. The Company does not know whether the plaintiffs will file a Notice of Appeal.

"There are no winners when an experimental therapeutic fails in clinical trials, especially for a challenging and underserved indication such as pancreatic cancer.  We are extremely pleased, however, that the Court recognized that the plaintiffs' claims were without merit and granted in full and with prejudice our motion to dismiss," commented Douglas J. Swirsky, President and Chief Executive Officer of GenVec. 

"The favorable resolution of this case is timely as we work to transition GenVec from a capital-intensive, product development company to one focused on the cost efficient creation of value through the licensing of our proprietary vector and cell line technologies," added Mr. Swirsky.

GenVec and the individual defendants are represented by Hogan Lovells US LLP.
