Galena Biopharma Announces Closing of Public Offering of Common Stock and
Warrants

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Galena Biopharma, Inc.
(Nasdaq:GALE), a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing
innovative, targeted oncology treatments that address major unmet medical
needs to advance cancer care, today announced the closing of its previously
announced underwritten public offering of 17,500,000 shares of common stock,
and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,125,000 shares of common stock at
an exercise price of $2.50 per share. The underwriters also exercised their
over-allotment option to purchase warrants to purchase an aggregate of 918,750
shares of common stock. The warrants are immediately exercisable and expire on
the fifth anniversary of the date of issuance. The shares of common stock and
the warrants will be issued separately and will be separately transferable
immediately upon issuance.

The net proceeds to Galena are expected to be approximately $32.6 million,
assuming no exercise of the warrants and after deducting underwriting

clinical trials of its product candidates, and general corporate purposes.
