Armco Metals Holdings, Inc. (AMCO) Subsidiary Noted by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology for Approved Scrap Steel Processing Operations

Today before the opening bell, Armco Metals announced its subsidiary Armco (Lianyungang) Renewable Metals, Inc. was on a list of companies that have received approval for operation in the scrap steel processing industry. The list of companies was published by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on June 16, 2014. It contains only 131 companies in total and signifies the final step in Armco Metals' attainment of approval for entering into China's scrap steel processing industry by the ministry.

Since September 2012, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology came up with a set of stringent policies binding across many company facets as necessary standards for a company to enter into China's scrap steel processing industry. Known as the "Standards for Entering the Scrap Steel Processing Industry", these standards include policies for corporate layout, construction requirements, scale, technology and equipment, product quality, energy consumption and resource utilization, environmental protection, training of personnel, production safety, occupational health, social responsibility, supervision, and management. In 2013, Armco (Lianyungang) Renewable Metals attained Model Scrap Processing and Distribution Center" status from the Chinese Scrap Application Association, and earlier in 2014, it attained ministry authorization for market entry.

Armco Metals sees this as a company milestone because of the small number of companies that have been noted to be capable of operating within the policy guidelines. The Chinese government has been pushing for strengthened policies regarding efficiency and environmental responsibility, and Armco Metals is strategically positioned for taking advantage of those policy shifts. The policy shift toward environmental responsibility is forecasted to help promote scrap metal as a market alternative to iron ore for production purposes. At present, scrap steel usage in the Chinese steel industry is only about 8%, or approximately one-seventh of the scrap steel usage in the U.S. and Europe.

Kexuan Yao, Chairman and CEO of Armco Metals Holdings, stated, "We continue to see progress at our Renewable Metals subsidiary as we work to position our Company for the future. Our efforts have resulted in this important inclusion in the list of approved operators that we believe will pay big dividends down the road as the Government looks to increase industrial efficiency while reducing pollution. China's scrap industry has been slow to develop due to many producers opting to use less costly and more pollutive production methods. As the government implements these new initiatives, we see steel producers moving to models that more closely resemble that of the U.S. and Europe which should lead to significant need for scrap steel produced by the small circle of companies who are approved by the government to operate in this industry."

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) Enters Agreement with $1 Billion Global Pharmaceutical Company

International Stem Cell Corp., a biotech company developing novel stem cell-based therapies, announced this morning that it has entered into a twelve-month research agreement with Rohto Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., a global Japanese pharmaceutical company that develops new technology for the medical and cosmetics markets with approximately $1.3 billion in consolidated annual sales. Founded in 1899, Rohto today has products available in more than 150 countries.

Rohto has agreed to evaluate stem cell-derived human cells owned and provided by ISCO in a number of pre-clinical animal models. If the research is successful and the parties agree on remaining terms, it is anticipated that a definitive license agreement will be signed at the end of this research agreement. Certain key terms of such a license agreement, including the target disease areas and intellectual property rights, have already been defined in the research agreement.

"We are delighted to have such an outstanding company work with us, and we believe that the potential for this agreement is significant," stated Dr. Simon Craw, EVP of Business Development at ISCO. "Under the terms of the agreement Rohto will begin working with our cells immediately and if the program is successful we may move to the next stage, signing a definitive license agreement. Such an agreement would significantly enhance our standing in a number of ways. Firstly, having diligently built up our scientific strength and patent portfolio over the last few years, it would both validate our research as well as our ability to generate licensing revenue from our proprietary platform. Secondly, by expanding the use of our technology into new areas beyond that which we can address alone, it would add value to the Company."

Under the agreement ISCO will provide a number of differentiated human cells derived from the company's collection of pluripotent human stem cells known as UniStemCell™. The Company has a track record of successfully demonstrating that human cells derived from UniStemCell™ are effective in animal models of various diseases and have the potential to be used as a basis for developing human therapies. ISCO has adopted this approach successfully with a number of academic collaborators in the past.
