BrainStorm Completes Uplisting to the NASDAQ Capital Market

NEW YORK, NY and PETACH TIKVAH, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: BCLI), a leading developer of adult stem cell technologies for neurodegenerative diseases, today announced that its shares of common stock have been approved for uplisting to the NASDAQ Capital Market, and will commence trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market when trading begins on September 30, 2014.

"We are so happy to bring BrainStorm's common stock to NASDAQ. This is an important step in BrainStorm's corporate development. The uplisting of the common stock to a national securities exchange should enhance the awareness of the important work BrainStorm is doing with adult stem cell technologies in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases," said Tony Fiorino, MD, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of BrainStorm.

BrainStorm's common shares will trade under the ticker symbol "BCLI" when trading on Nasdaq and will no longer temporarily be quoted as "BCLID" effective September 30, 2014. This modifies BrainStorm's previous announcement that from September 16, 2014 until October 14, 2014 their shares would be quoted as "BCLID" in order to designate the recent one (1) for fifteen (15) reverse split of BrainStorm's issued and outstanding common stock.
