Hemispherx Biopharma Europe Enters Investment Banking Relations with Major European Institutions

Hemispherx Biopharma (Amex: HEB) said today it started the process of a private placement for its subsidiary HEB-EU. HEB-EU, which has a marketing application pending in the European Union (EU) for treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalitis (CFS/ME), was founded to develop and market certain novel anti-viral products, including Ampligen(R) for untreatable chronic and life-threatening human viral disorders. Quadra Invest and Arthur Anderson Corporate Finance Belgium have been mandated to organize the private placement. Quadra Invest is the venture capital division of Dexia, one of the largest Belgian banks. Arthur Anderson Corporate Finance is a division of Arthur Anderson, a leading professional services organization. In addition, Quadra Invest formally notified HEB-EU that their group would take a percentage of the equity placement into their own corporate account. Jurgen Ingels of Quadra Invest commented: "This investment opportunity is exciting to us -- namely a product on the cusp of commercialization, strong experienced management, and broad patent coverage into a major untapped pharmaceutical market." Terms of the investment were not disclosed. William A. Carter, M.D., Chairman of Hemispherx Europe commented: "We think HEB-EU is uniquely situated to capture a major position in the European pharmaceutical arena, and as a result, to arouse significant investor interest, both at the institutional and individual investor level."
