SAN DIEGO -- December 14, 2012

Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYTX) today announced the sale of 7,020,000
shares of its common stock in an underwritten public offering at a price to
the public of $2.85 per share. The net offering proceeds to Cytori from the
sale of the shares are expected to be approximately $18.5 million, after
deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other estimated offering
expenses, but excluding any exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment
option.

Cytori anticipates using the net proceeds from this offering for general
corporate purposes, including the continued development, manufacture,
marketing and sale of its Celution System family of products, including
related research and clinical trials, and other related research and
development, sales and marketing, and general administrative expenses, working
capital, capital expenditures and future acquisitions.

The offering is expected to close on or about December 19, 2012, subject to
customary closing conditions. In addition, Cytori has granted the underwriters
a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,053,000 shares of common
stock on the same terms and conditions, solely to cover over-allotments, if
any.

Lazard Capital Markets LLC is acting as the sole book-running manager of the
offering. Maxim Group, LLC and Ascendiant Capital Markets, LLC are each acting
as co-managers for the offering.

The shares described above will be issued pursuant to a prospectus supplement
filed as part of a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 previously filed
with and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
The offering may be made only by means of a prospectus supplement and the
accompanying prospectus, copies of which may be obtained by sending a request

supplement relating to the offering with the SEC, which will be available
along with the accompanying prospectus filed with the SEC in connection with
the shelf registration, on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.

About Cytori

Cytori Therapeutics is developing cell therapies based on autologous
adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) to treat cardiovascular disease and
repair soft tissue defects. Cytori’s scientific data suggest ADRCs improve
blood flow, moderate the immune response and keep tissue at risk of dying
alive. As a result, Cytori believes these cells can be applied across multiple
“ischemic” conditions. These therapies are made available to the physician and
patient at the point-of-care by Cytori’s proprietary technologies and
products, including the Celution® system product family. www.cytori.com
