Adamis Completes $10 Million Common Stock Purchase Agreement

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2010) - Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTCBB: ADMP) announced the signing of a definitive common stock purchase agreement with Eses Holdings Limited, a company located in the United Arab Emirates. Pursuant to the agreement, Eses has agreed to invest $10 million and acquire 40 million shares of Adamis common stock at a purchase price of $0.25 per share. $5 million of the investment was made at an initial closing. The remaining $5 million is to be invested in two tranches of $2.5 million each upon the achievement by the company of certain milestones. The company anticipates that the milestones will be achieved and the additional investments will occur within the next 60 to 120 days. The milestones include the filing of Investigational New Drug applications (INDs) with the FDA to begin clinical trials on two of Adamis' prostate cancer product candidates. 

Dr. Dennis J. Carlo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Adamis stated, "This funding serves as a positive inflection point in the growth of our company in that it gives us the capital to advance both our specialty pharmaceutical products and our cancer and vaccine product candidates. We believe that we have the right mix of products with our cancer and vaccine drug candidates APC-100, 200, and 300 as well as another vaccine technology that we believe has great promise and that we expect to in-license and announce in the very near future. Additionally, we expect to complete the negotiation and signing of a product development, manufacturing, and supply agreement that we believe will provide additional products to help grow our specialty pharmaceutical business. Together, we believe all of this will help us increase shareholder value and accomplish our goal of building Adamis into a profitable company."
