EcoSystem Executes Agreement for $76 Million in Equity Financing

EcoSystem Executes Agreement for $76 Million in Equity Financing

NEW YORK, N.Y., JULY 30, 2009 – EcoSystem Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: ESYM) today announced its execution of agreements for the sale of EcoSystem preferred stock and warrants to purchase common stock to five investment funds for $76 million.

Funding under the agreements is expected to occur prior to August 5, 2009 upon the satisfaction by EcoSystem of pre-funding conditions. The funds will be held in a restricted EcoSystem account and will be available for use according to the use of proceeds schedule and other conditions specified in the agreements.

EcoSystem will use the investment proceeds to acquire distressed ethanol production facilities, to acquire other strategically-compatible assets, and to develop and integrate EcoSystem’s Cellulosic Corn™ technologies into EcoSystem’s planned ethanol production facilities.

EcoSystem’s goal is to achieve an annualized renewable fuel production rate of 500 million gallons per year within three years, and to demonstrate market leadership by using its technologies to refine more fuel out of corn for less cost on reduced energy consumption and carbon emitted.

Detailed information regarding this investment is available online at in EcoSystem’s July 30, 2009 Form 8K.

Cellulosic Corn™

The corn ethanol industry contributed over $65 billion to the GDP by offsetting 7% of America's fossil fuel needs in 2008. EcoSystem intends to prove that corn has much more to add.

EcoSystem’s view is that the established first generation corn ethanol infrastructure is the only practical pathway in North America to cost-effectively increase the production and use of carbon-neutral biofuels on globally-meaningful scales. To accomplish this in a competitive and environmentally superior way, the installed base of first generation corn ethanol facilities will need to evolve to achieve significantly improved production efficiencies. EcoSystem intends to do just that, and to become a leading low cost and low carbon producer of renewable fuels by leveraging its technology portfolio to acquire and upgrade corn ethanol facilities into increased financial and environmental sustainability while facilitating the convergence of cellulosic and corn ethanol.

EcoSystem’s portfolio of patented and patent-pending Cellulosic Corn™ technologies are designed to achieve the following key goals:

Increase the net energy balance of biofuel derived from corn;
Increase profitability of corn ethanol;
Decrease amount of petroleum burned to make corn derived biofuel;
Increase the nutritional content of corn ethanol co-products;
Reduce, reuse and recycle the carbon emissions of corn ethanol production;
Diversify the biomass mix accepted and produced by traditional corn ethanol facilities;
Decrease the commodity and financial risk profile of corn ethanol;
Standardize corn-friendly cellulosic technology by building on the existing corn ethanol complex; and,
Enhance the competitive positioning of corn ethanol in the domestic and global markets.
About EcoSystem Corporation

EcoSystem’s ambition is to become a leading low cost and low carbon producer of renewable fuels by acquiring and upgrading existing corn ethanol facilities with technologies designed to increase the yield and to reduce the energy consumption and carbon intensity of refining fuel out of corn.

100% survival rate against an inhaled lethal dose of anthrax - ADLS

Press Release
Advanced Life Sciences' Restanza(TM) Shows 100% Survival In Confirmatory Anthrax Study

CHICAGO, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Advanced Life Sciences Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ADLS), today announced that a second non-human primate study involving its novel, once-a-day, oral antibiotic Restanza(TM) (cethromycin), showed that a 14-day course of Restanza achieved a 100% survival rate against an inhaled lethal dose of anthrax. All of the animals in the study that received 16 mg/kg once-a-day (the human equivalent dose of 300 mg) of Restanza within 24 hours after exposure to anthrax survived while none of the animals that received placebo survived. The study was supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), an institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is a component of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), an agency of the U.S. Government.


"The successful outcome of the study provides strong evidence of Restanza's life saving potential and underscores its value as a potent new biodefense countermeasure," said Dr. Michael Flavin, Chairman and CEO of Advanced Life Sciences. "When coupled with the positive outcome of the pivotal primate study that we announced in May 2007, we believe that these significant findings complete the regulatory package for Restanza in the post-exposure prophylactic treatment of inhalation anthrax indication. We are looking forward to working with NIAID on the final study report and submitting our data package for regulatory review based on our NDA for Restanza, which is currently under review by the FDA for the treatment of mild-to-moderate community acquired pneumonia (CAP)."

Restanza as a Biodefense Countermeasure

Advanced Life Sciences is developing Restanza for the post-exposure prophylactic treatment of inhalation anthrax to help protect against human infection from anthrax. In studies conducted by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), Restanza was shown to be highly active in vitro against 30 strains of anthrax. In May 2007, a non-human primate study showed that a 30-day course of oral Restanza was 100% protective against a lethal dose of inhaled anthrax as compared to the standard of care, Cipro(R) (ciprofloxacin), which demonstrated 90% protection. The FDA has designated Restanza as an orphan drug for the post-exposure prophylactic treatment of inhalation anthrax, but the FDA has not yet approved the drug for marketing in this or any other indication.

In addition to its development in anthrax, Restanza is also being developed to combat other high priority bioterror agents such as Fransicella tularensis (tularemia), Yersinia pestis (plague) and Burkholderia pseudomallei (melioidosis) under a two year, $3.8 million contract with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) of the U.S. Department of Defense.

FDA's "Animal Efficacy Rule" and the Use of Non-Human Primates

The "Animal Efficacy Rule" allows for approval of new drug products based on animal data when adequate and well-controlled efficacy studies in humans cannot be ethically conducted because the studies would involve administering a potentially lethal or permanently disabling toxic substance or organism to healthy human volunteers. Approval of a drug under the "Animal Efficacy Rule" is subject to certain post-approval commitments, including the submission of a plan for conducting post-marketing studies, post-marketing restrictions to ensure safe use (if deemed necessary), and product labeling information intended for patient advising that, among other things, indicates the product's approval was based on efficacy studies conducted in animals alone.

The non-human primates used in the study referenced above were used to help understand anthrax disease mechanisms and to assess novel approaches for the prophylactic treatment of inhalation anthrax in lieu of human efficacy testing pursuant to FDA's "Animal Efficacy Rule" (21 C.F.R. Section 314.600-650). The study referenced above was carried out in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) under the supervision of an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), which is responsible for enforcing the AWA.
