New York, NY – RenMac Gives Back

Renaissance Macro Research (“RenMac”) is pleased to announce all commissions generated Thursday,
June 12th will be donated to support Cerebral Palsy (CP) research. Cerebral Palsy is a brain injury
frequently associated with a difficult childbirth. CP is the most prevalent motor disorder of
childhood, affecting 2 to 3 of every 1000 live births. In the US this is approximately 10,000
babies a year.

“At RenMac, we believe that it is our obligation to give back in a meaningful way. Additionally, we
believe that one of the most effective ways to do this is to support specific programs that could
have a meaningful impact on people’s lives. Hence, we are teaming up with Duke University and
Translational Research to raising money to help move stem cell research forward.” said Steve Hash,
President and COO of RenMac.

The lead Doctor on this study is Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg. “There is much interest in using stem cells
to halt or potentially reverse the damage to young brains. At Duke University, Dr. Joanne
Kurtzberg and a team of clinicians are testing infusion of stem cells from a child’s own umbilical
cord blood that was saved at birth. Umbilical cord blood contains stem cells that can potentially
facilitate neural cell repair resulting in improved function. Over 400 children have been treated
this way at Duke University in early clinical studies.”
