BioSante Pharmaceuticals Reports Net Profit of $2.8 million for 2006 And Investor Conference Call

LINCOLNSHIRE, Illinois (March 8, 2007) – BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Amex: BPA) today announced its 2006 financial results.

For the year ended December 31, 2006, BioSante recorded net income of approximately $2.8 million or $0.13 per basic and diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2006, compared to a net loss of $9.7 million or ($0.50) per basic and diluted share for the same period in 2005. The company’s cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of December 31, 2006 were approximately $11.5 million, compared to $9.1 million at December 31, 2005.

“2006 was a very important financial year for BioSante,” said Stephen M. Simes, BioSante’s president and chief executive officer. “We recorded our first ever year with net income which was primarily the result of the revenue from our agreement with Bradley Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for the marketing of Elestrin™ (estradiol gel). Due to a $2.625 million upfront licensing payment from Bradley and a $7.6 million private placement completed in July 2006, we were able to increase our cash balance from a year earlier. Based on our current cash balance and the additional milestone payments already due from Bradley, we believe we are in a solid financial position to move forward with our LibiGel development program and our other operations. We look forward to our investor conference call scheduled for Friday, March 9, 2007 at 9 am ET,” Simes concluded.

BioSante will issue its development highlights and host its 2006 earnings conference call Friday, March 9, 2007. The conference call will include a discussion of the company’s development activities, financial results and current news. Details are provided below
