About NeoStem, Inc.NeoStem, Inc. ("NeoStem") is engaged in the development and manufacturing of cell-based therapies. Its January, 2011 acquisition of Progenitor Cell Therapy ("PCT"), and its July 14, 2011 announcement of the signing of a merger agreement to acquire Amorcyte, Inc. ("Amorcyte"), position NeoStem to achieve its mission of capturing the paradigm shift to cell therapy.

PCT gives NeoStem not only access to a world class contract manufacturing cell therapy company but provides NeoStem a platform and expertise around the evaluation, development and regulatory requirements to develop autologous, allogeneic, immunomodulatory and vaccine-based therapeutics.

NeoStem also holds the worldwide exclusive license to VSEL(TM) Technology, which uses very small embryonic-like stem cells, shown to have several physical characteristics that are generally found in embryonic stem cells, and is pursuing the licensing of other technologies for therapeutic use. NeoStem owns 80% of Athelos Corporation, a company developing a T-cell therapeutic with potential in a range of auto-immune conditions such as graft versus host disease, asthma and diabetes. NeoStem's acquisition of Amorcyte, once the transaction is completed, will give the Company a Phase 2 asset for the treatment of Acute Myocardial Infarctions and a Phase 1 asset for Congestive Heart Failure. NeoStem will own 100% of the worldwide rights to the Amorcyte programs.

Furthermore, NeoStem is building its Chinese presence by establishing an operations lab for cell-based manufacturing in Beijing, as well as commercializing cellular therapies in China through the establishment of relationships with a network of hospitals.

NeoStem also owns a majority-interest in Suzhou Erye Pharmaceutical Company Limited, a world class manufacturing and distribution operation of generic antibiotics in China, with reported revenues of $69 million in 2010.
