Immune Pharmaceuticals Announces Focus on Capital Raising and Primary Listing in The United States
Date:9/29/2013

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Immune Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm Exchange and OTCQX: IMNP) ("IMMUNE" or the "Company") announced today that following the recent merger of Immune Pharmaceuticals Ltd. and EpiCept Corporation, the Company will focus its capital raising efforts in the United States to support its objective to up-list to a U.S. national securities exchange (NASDAQ or NYSE MKT), with the intention of that becoming its primary listing. As a result of the merger, NASDAQ OMX Stockholm AB has advised, and the Company has agreed, to seek the transition of its Swedish listing to NASDAQ OMX First North Premier, which maintains access to Nordic country capital and liquidity for existing shareholders, while requiring less market specific regulation.

As a result of the merger, the percentage of the Company's outstanding shares traded on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm has been reduced from more than 80% to approximately 18%.  The Company concluded that maintaining a primary listing on the OMX Stockholm Exchange was no longer appropriate.

Dr. Daniel Teper, IMMUNE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer explained, "IMMUNE is positioned to access capital available for biotech companies amid the current momentum for financing in the U.S. public markets. We believe a primary listing on a national exchange in the U.S. will benefit all shareholders, including our Swedish shareholders. IMMUNE is committed to the execution of its operational plan to achieve multiple clinical and business milestones in the next 18 months."
