Item 8.01 Other Events.

On November 15, 2012, Star Scientific CEO Jonnie R. Williams and several long term shareholders invested $20 million in the Company through the exercise of outstanding warrants. Mr. Williams also announced that he would reduce his salary to $1 per month starting January 2013 until the Company becomes profitable.

As part of this investment, the holders of previously issued warrants exercisable for 18,500,000 shares of Star Scientific, Inc.'s (the "Company") common stock, par value $0.0001 per share ("Common Stock"), with a weighted average exercise price of $2.71 per share (the "Prior Warrants"), agreed with the Company to immediately exercise the Prior Warrants for cash in exchange for a reduction of exercise price of the Prior Warrants to $1.00 per share. Mr. Williams also exercised 1,000,000 warrants previously issued to him in a prior transaction at the full warrant exercise price of $1.50 per share for a personal investment of $1,500,000.

The gross proceeds from the exercise of the Prior Warrants and Mr. Williams' exercise of his warrants are $20 million. The exercise will result in the issuance of 19,500,000 shares of Common Stock and the cancellation of warrants exercisable for 19,500,000 shares of Common Stock.
