NEW YORK, Dec. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:TAUG) or ("Tauriga" or "the Company"), a diversified company focused on generating profitable revenues through license agreements and the development of a proprietary technology platform in the nanorobotics space, has today announced its strong commitment to the completion of its proposed acquisition with synthetic biology pioneer Pilus Energy LLC ("Pilus Energy"). Since November 25, 2013, when Tauriga announced the definitive agreement to acquire Pilus, the Company has experienced extreme volatility and downward pressure on its stock price. During this period the company has presented to and met with numerous institutional investors and experienced significant levels of interest from potential industry partners and customers throughout the world. The Company has been working diligently to establish a global presence through partnerships and international exclusive licenses, because its proprietary BactoBot technology can potentially address many global water related issues. While the recent share price volatility has been of concern to the company, the company still has 5 months to complete the requisite financing ("financing") and is encouraged by the interest level from the institutional investors. In addition the Company is hopeful that at least a portion of the financing will be non-dilutive, and management is working hard towards that end.        

Tauriga's Chief Executive Officer Seth M, Shaw commented, "The company has been making excellent progress on a number of fronts and realizes the importance of completing the acquisition of Pilus Energy. The recent share price decline has been precipitous and the Company is taking steps to reassure investors that this volatility is in no way a reflection of the long term value proposition here. As CEO of the Company, I care deeply about the concerns and uneasiness of the shareholders, and I want to make it clear that my commitment to the success of this Company is unshakable."

Pilus Energy's President Jason E. Barkeloo stated, "Pilus and its stakeholders remain fully committed to closing the transaction with Tauriga Sciences regardless of any short term share price volatility. In fact as CEO of Bacterial Robotics, I view this as an opportunity for both Bacterial Robotics as a company and its shareholders to acquire equity positions in Tauriga. We have full confidence in Tauriga and its management and choose to view this market weakness purely as an opportunity rather than a negative."

On November 25, 2013, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Cincinnati, Ohio based Pilus Energy LLC ("Pilus Energy"), a developer of alternative cleantech energy platforms using proprietary microbial solutions that creates electricity while consuming polluting molecules from wastewater. Upon consummation of the proposed reverse merger, which has been unanimously ratified by Tauriga's board of directors, Pilus Energy will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tauriga.
