NEW YORK, NY – August 10, 2020 – Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: ATNM) (“Actinium” or the “Company”) today announced that its Board of Directors approved a 1-for-30 reverse split of its issued and outstanding common stock that will become effective after trading closes on August 10, 2020. Trading of the Company common stock will begin on a split-adjusted basis when markets open on August 11, 2020. The common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE American under the ticker symbol “ATNM,” although a new CUSIP number 00507W206 has been assigned as a result of the reverse stock split.
Upon effectiveness of the reverse stock split, every thirty (30) shares of the Company’s pre-reverse split common stock will be combined and reclassified into one (1) share of common stock. The reverse stock split will not modify any rights of the Company’s common stock. The reverse stock split will also apply to common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Company’s outstanding warrants and stock options, with a proportionate adjustment to the numbers of shares which can be purchased upon the exercise of the warrants and stock options and the exercise prices thereof, and under the Company’s equity incentive plan. Immediately after the reverse stock split becomes effective, the Company will have approximately 13,585,268 shares of common stock outstanding (subject to surrender of fractional shares in exchange for cash payment in lieu). No fractional shares will be issued following the reverse stock split.
As previously disclosed, on December 18, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved a proposal authorizing the Company’s Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split at its discretion at a ratio not greater than 1-for-75 in order to help regain compliance with the NYSE American’s minimum price requirements.

About Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing ARCs or Antibody Radiation-Conjugates, which combine the targeting ability of antibodies with the cell killing ability of radiation. Actinium’s lead application for our ARCs is targeted conditioning, which is intended to selectively kill patient’s cancer cells and certain immune cells prior to a BMT or Bone Marrow Transplant, CAR-T and other cell therapies or gene therapy to enable engraftment of these transplanted cells with minimal toxicities. With our ARC approach, we seek to improve patient outcomes and access to these potentially curative treatments by eliminating or reducing the non-targeted chemotherapy that is used for conditioning in standard practice currently. Our lead product candidate, Iomab-B is being studied in the ongoing pivotal Phase 3 Study of Iomab-B in Elderly Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia (SIERRA) trial for BMT conditioning. The SIERRA trial is over fifty percent enrolled and promising single-agent, feasibility and safety data has been highlighted at ASH, TCT, ASCO and SOHO annual meetings. Beyond Iomab-B, we are developing a multi-disease, multi-target pipeline of clinical-stage ARCs targeting the antigens CD45 and CD33 for targeted conditioning and as a therapeutic either in combination with other therapeutic modalities or as a single agent for patients with a broad range of hematologic malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple myeloma. Underpinning our clinical programs is our proprietary AWE (Antibody Warhead Enabling) technology platform. This is where our intellectual property portfolio of over 120 patents, know-how, collective research and expertise in the field are being leveraged to construct and study novel ARCs and ARC combinations to bolster our pipeline for strategic purposes. Our AWE technology platform is currently being utilized in a collaborative research partnership with Astellas Pharma, Inc.
