Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Goes Public via a Reverse Merger into Cactus Ventures, Inc.

NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Actinium") announced today that it went public via a reverse merger into Cactus Ventures, Inc. (OTCBB: CTVN), a fully reporting public company (the "Company") pursuant to a share exchange agreement dated December 28, 2012. As a result of the share exchange, former shareholders of Actinium became the controlling shareholders of the public Company. On the closing of the share exchange approximately 21% of Actinium's issued and outstanding shares were exchanged for 4,309,015 shares of the Company's common stock.  The Company's stock will trade under the name Cactus Ventures, Inc. until such time as the intended name change to Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. takes effect.   

The Company will continue to exchange its shares of common stock for shares of Actinium held by the remaining Actinium shareholders and urges existing Actinium shareholders to do so as quickly as possible.

Jack Talley, our President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "As we are expanding our ongoing clinical trials and adding new ones, it is very important to have access to public markets and provide liquidity for our investors who helped us reach this stage in the clinical development of our drug candidates."

Mr. Talley will serve as our President and Chief Executive Officer of the newly public company.  Dragan Cicic, MD will serve as our Chief Operating Officer and Chief Medical Officer.  Enza Guagenti will serve as our Chief Financial Officer. Our Board of Directors will include Mr. Talley, Dr. Rosemary Mazanet, David Nicholson, Sandesh Seth and Sergio Traversa.  The Company will be based in New York, NY.

On December 26, 2012, Actinium announced that it completed a first closing of $5.1 million in its current round of financing (the "Offering"), for which Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd. is the exclusive placement agent. Funding from the Offering will be used primarily for further development of Actimab™A, Actinium's lead drug candidate in multicenter Phase I/II trials in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and Iomab™ – B, a Phase II clinical stage bone marrow conditioning agent for preparing patients for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. 

Post the closing of the share exchange, the Company will continue the Offering on the same terms on a pro-forma basis with the common shares offered at $1.65 per share, the 120 day warrants exercise price at $1.65 per share and the 5 year warrants exercise price at $2.47 per share. Investors in the Offering will receive securities of the Company, the public company, and not Actinium.  The Company is authorized to sell up to $15 million in gross proceeds in the Offering.

More information about the transaction may be found in a current report on Form 8-K filed on January 2, 2013 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
