The Company


Nuvilex, Inc. (“Company”) is dedicated to bringing to market scientifically derived products designed to improve the health, condition and well-being of those who use them. The Company is a preclinical and clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing and preparing to commercialize treatments for cancer and diabetes based upon a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology known as Cell-in-a-Box®. This unique and patented technology will be used as a platform upon which treatments for several types of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built. The Company is also working towards improving the quality of life for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on treatments for other types of abdominal cancers using the Cell-in-a-Box® technology.


The Company is currently preparing for a Phase 2b clinical trial with its pancreatic cancer treatment in patients with advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer that will be conducted in Australia and preclinical studies and clinical trials of that same pancreatic cancer treatment to study its effects on major symptoms associated with pancreatic cancer. These latter preclinical studies and clinical trials will be conducted in the United States. A preclinical study on ascites is currently underway in the United States.


The Company operates independently and through four wholly-owned subsidiaries: (i) Viridis Biotech, Inc.; (ii) Nuvilex Europe Limited; (iii) Nuvilex Australia Private Limited; and (iv) Bio Blue Bird AG (“Bio Blue Bird”). The Company's strategy is to focus on developing and marketing products it believes have potential for long-term corporate growth solely in the area of biotechnology.


In June 2013, the Company and SG Austria Private Limited (“SG Austria”) entered into a Third Addendum (“Third Addendum”) to the SG Austria Asset Purchase Agreement with the Company (“SG Austria APA”). The Third Addendum resulted in the Company acquiring 100% of the equity interests in Bio Blue Bird and receiving a 14.5% equity interest in SG Austria. The Company also received nine bearer shares of Bio Blue Bird. Under the Third Addendum, the Company paid: (i) $500,000 to retire all outstanding debt of Bio Blue Bird; and (ii) $1.0 million to SG Austria. In addition the Company paid SG Austria $1,572,193. The Third Addendum returned the original 100,000,000 shares of common stock to the Company treasury and the 100,000 shares of common stock of Austrianova Singapore Private Limited (“Austrianova Singapore”) to SG Austria that was part of the consideration set forth in the SG Austria APA.


The acquisition of Bio Blue Bird provided the Company with exclusive, worldwide licenses to use a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology for the development of treatments for all forms of cancer using certain types of cells. The licenses are pursuant to patents licensed from Bavarian Nordic A/S and GSF-Forschungszentrum fur Umwelt u. Gesundeit GmbH. These licenses enable the Company to carry out the research and development of cancer treatments that are based upon the live cell encapsulation technology known as “Cell-in-a-Box®.”


In July 2013, the Company also acquired from Austrianova Singapore the exclusive, worldwide license to use the cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology for the development of a treatment for diabetes and the use of Austrianova Singapore’s “Cell-in-a-Box®” trademark for this technology (“Diabetes Licensing Agreement”). The Company made its first $1,000,000 payment to secure the Diabetes Licensing Agreement on October 30, 2013. The second and final payment of $1,000,000 was made on February 25, 2014.
