CHICAGO, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Advanced Life Sciences Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADLS), today announced that on October 1, 2008 the Nasdaq Listings Qualifications Department informed the Company that the market value of its listed securities was below $35 million for 10 consecutive days, which is the requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market according to Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3)(B). Nasdaq also informed the Company that it is not in compliance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3)(A) or 4310(c)(3)(C), which require minimum stockholders' equity of $2,500,000 or net income from continuing operations of $500,000 in the most recently completed fiscal year or in two of the last three most recently completed fiscal years.
Advanced Life Sciences has been provided 30 calendar days, or until October 31, 2008, to regain compliance with the continued listing requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market. If at anytime prior to October 31, 2008, the market value of listed securities of the Company's common stock is $35 million or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, this could constitute meeting the criteria for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
In the event that the Company does not regain compliance by October 31, 2008, Advanced Life Sciences will have the right to appeal a determination to delist its securities from the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company's securities would remain listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market throughout the appeal process.
