In recapping highlights of 2010, the Company will review its multiple accomplishments for the year. In November 2010, we raised $19 million from two concurrent offerings. These funds will help us to grow our revenue lines of businesses in the US and China, including the closing of our acquisition of Progenitor Cell Therapy LLC, and further assist in our growth. NeoStem was also named "Best Stem Cell Company, 2010" in The New Economy's Biotech Awards. Additionally, The Vatican's Pontifical Council has undertaken to commit $1 million to joint ventures with NeoStem and the Stem for Life Foundation, a not-for-profit entity NeoStem participated in founding, to expand research and raise awareness of adult stem cell therapies.We also began generating revenues from what we believe will be just the beginning of a pipeline of stem cell-based regenerative medicine therapies, a key element of our growth strategy in both the United States and China, with our collaboration with Wendeng Hospital in China whereby patients are being offered the benefit of the latest technology from the US in the treatment of a range of orthopedic conditions. Additionally, the ongoing relocation to Suzhou Erye Pharmaceutical's new manufacturing facility continues to progress and should be completed in 2011 thereby significantly increasing capacity.
"I look forward to the opportunity to detail some of these exciting developments as well as discuss some of our upcoming milestones at these two industry events in San Francisco," said Dr. Robin Smith.
