Unilife Hosts White House Business Council Meeting

YORK, Pa., June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Unilife Corporation ("Unilife" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: UNIS; ASX: UNS) today hosted Kathleen Merrigan, the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, for a White House Business Council roundtable discussion with local business leaders at its facility in York, Pennsylvania.

The White House established the White House Business Council (WHBC) under the direction of President Obama. The Winning the Future Roundtables with American Business tour now being conducted by the WHBC is enabling the Obama Administration (the "Administration") to hear directly from U.S. business leaders about their ideas for how to continue to grow the economy, put Americans back to work, and win the future.

The WHBC meeting hosted by Unilife with local business leaders in York was amongst the first of more than 100 Council roundtables that will be held by the Administration across all 50 U.S. states by the end of the year.

Unilife's Chief Executive Officer Mr. Alan Shortall welcomed the Agriculture Deputy Secretary, Pennsylvania State Director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Tom Williams, other members of the White House Business Council and members of the York business community to the WHBC Roundtable Discussion.

"As an emerging leader for advanced drug delivery systems with a new and fast-growing presence in Pennsylvania, Unilife is committed to supporting U.S. programs that can accelerate opportunities for home-grown innovation, attract international investment and create jobs in the industries of tomorrow," Mr. Shortall said.

"Unilife was honored to be invited to host the Agriculture Deputy Secretary and the White House Business Council to discuss these key important matters with members of the York business community."

In October last year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) agreed to guarantee $10 million of an $18 million mortgage Unilife obtained to support construction of its new $32 million global headquarters and manufacturing facility in York, Pennsylvania.
