Expert Comments:

Edward Woo, Ascendiant Capital Markets (6/30/15)
"The safety profile from StemCells Inc.'s Phase 1/2 study in dry age-related macular degeneration supports the recent initiation of the company's Radiant study, a Phase 2 controlled proof-of-concept trial. . .we expect 2015 to have significant clinical milestones for StemCells Inc. and additional data points to be released over the next year to be positive and a catalyst for the stock."

Jason Kolbert, Maxim Group (6/30/15)
"StemCells Inc. held a conference call yesterday to review previous data from the ongoing Phase 1/2 study in dry age-related macular degeneration. . .the totality of the data is actually quite good and suggestive of an efficacy signal with zero safety issues. . .we remain optimistic about the prospects for the current Phase 2 trial."

Ching-Yi Lin, H.C. Wainwright & Co. (6/30/15)
"Yesterday, StemCells Inc.'s management discussed topline results of its Phase 1/2 study in dry age-related macular degeneration. . .results from both cohorts showed safety and tolerability in addition to lower geographic atrophy growth rates in the study eye when compared to the fellow control eye. . .we believe there is demonstration of biological activity based on improvement seen in visual function and anatomical assessment."

Caroline Corner, Cantor Fitzgerald (6/29/15)
"This morning, StemCells Inc.'s management held a conference call to review the results of the Phase 1/2 dry age-related macular degeneration study. . .the trial demonstrated safety and the company is moving forward with the Radiant Phase 2 trial. We maintain our Buy rating and $2 price target."

Caroline Corner, Cantor Fitzgerald (6/22/15)
"We anticipate that data will be presented this week at the International Society for Stem Cell Research in Stockholm from StemCells Inc.'s Phase 1/2 clinical trial in dry age-related macular degeneration/geographic atrophy (GA). Based on interim data we expect positive results, which we believe should increase confidence regarding a positive outcome for the company's phase 3 GA trial, Radiant. . . StemCells faces large opportunities in two markets that have few competitive players and no approved therapies."

Henry McCusker, Regenerative Medicine Investors (6/18/15)
"Health Canada has authorized StemCells Inc. to expand its Phase 2 clinical trial for chronic cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) into Canada. The Pathway study is designed to assess the efficacy of the proprietary HuCNS-SC(R) platform technology (purified human neural stem cells) for the treatment of cervical SCI with the primary efficacy outcome being the change in motor strength of the various muscle groups in the upper extremities innervated by the cervical spinal cord."
