Item 8.01 Other Events.

On June 3, 2013, StemCells, Inc. (the "Company") and Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC ("LPC") entered into a purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement"), pursuant to which the Company has the right to sell to LPC up to $30,000,000 in shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Common Stock"), subject to certain limitations and conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement (the "Registered Offering"). As consideration for entering into the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to issue to LPC 329,131 shares of Common Stock. The Company will not receive any cash proceeds from the issuance of these 329,131 shares.

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, upon the satisfaction of all of the conditions to the Company's right to commence sales under the Purchase Agreement, LPC is initially purchasing $3,000,000 in shares of Common Stock at $1.823 per share. Thereafter, on any business day and as often as every business day over the 36-month term of the Purchase Agreement, and up to an aggregate amount of an additional $27,000,000 (subject to certain limitations) in shares of Common Stock, the Company has the right, from time to time, at its sole discretion and subject to certain conditions to direct LPC to purchase up to 200,000 shares of Common Stock. The purchase price of shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Purchase Agreement will be based on prevailing market prices of Common Stock at the time of sales without any fixed discount, and the Company will control the timing and amount of any sales of Common Stock to LPC, but in no event will shares be sold to LPC on a day the Common Stock closing price is less than $1.00 per share, subject to adjustment. In addition, the Company may direct LPC to purchase additional amounts as accelerated purchases if on the date of a regular purchase the closing sale price of the Common Stock is not below $1.50 per share.

The Registered Offering was made pursuant to the Company's registration statement on Form S-3 (SEC File No. 333-170300) (the "Registration Statement"), which was declared effective by the SEC on November 16, 2010, and pursuant to a prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on June 4, 2013.

The initial purchase is expected to close on June 5, 2013. No discounts are payable in connection with the Registered Offering, and the Company expects to use the proceeds from the Registered Offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital, product development, capital expenditures, as well as acquisitions and other strategic purposes.

In connection with the Registered Offering, the Company engaged Bayridge Securities, LLC ("BRDG") as a placement agent. BRDG will receive a cash placement fee of $10,000, and the Company has agreed to reimburse BRDG's legal counsel for up to $5,000 of reasonable attorney's fees and expenses incurred by BRDG.

The foregoing description of the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement with LPC do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which is attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

The Company is filing the opinion of its counsel, Ropes & Gray LLP, relating to the legality of the shares of common stock offered and sold in the Registered Offering, as Exhibit 5.1 hereto. Exhibit 5.1 is incorporated herein by reference and into the Registration Statement.
