NovaDel Holds Annual Meeting
Flemington, NJ October 16, 2009
NovaDel Pharma Inc. (NYSE AMEX: NVD) held its 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on October 15, 2009. Mr. Mark Baric, Mr. Thomas Bonney, Mr. Steven Ratoff and Dr. Charles Nemeroff were elected directors of the Company. In addition, J.H. Cohn, LLP was approved as the Companys auditors for 2009. Mr. Ratoff, Chairman of the Board, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, reviewed the progress of the Company. Mr. Ratoff noted that NovaDel is actively engaged in licensing its two approved drugs, NitroMist and ZolpiMist, and the Companys goal is that licenses will be in place by the end of this 2009 fiscal year. Mr. Ratoff indicated that if that objective is achieved, these products could be launched by the licensee as early as the third quarter of 2010.
Mr. Ratoff also reviewed the current pipeline of the Company, noting that progress on the development of these opportunities is limited by the current lack of financial resources. Finally, Mr. Ratoff noted that while the Companys financial condition has improved as a result of the financing agreement with Seaside, LLC, substantive company progress requires additional financial resources. The Company recommends stockholders to review the liquidity section of the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2009.

ABOUT NOVADEL PHARMA
NovaDel Pharma Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing oral spray formulations for a broad range of marketed drugs. The Companys proprietary technology offers, in comparison to conventional oral dosage forms, the potential for faster absorption of drugs into the bloodstream leading to quicker onset of therapeutic effects and possibly reduced first pass liver metabolism, which may result in lower doses. Oral sprays eliminate the requirement for water or the need to swallow, potentially improving patient convenience and adherence.
NovaDels oral spray technology is focused on addressing unmet medical needs for a broad array of existing and future pharmaceutical products. The Companys most advanced oral spray candidates target angina, nausea, insomnia, migraine headaches and disorders of the central nervous system. NovaDel plans to develop these and other products independently and through collaborative arrangements with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. To find out more about NovaDel Pharma Inc.
