Cell Therapeutics, Inc. Announces Receipt of Letter From the NASDAQ Stock Market Regarding Non-Compliance With the Minimum Bid Price Requirement
Date:4/18/2008

SEATTLE, April 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) (Nasdaq and MTAX: CTIC) today announced that on April 16, 2008 it received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that for the last 30 consecutive business days the bid price of its common stock has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued inclusion under Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(5). This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of or the ability to trade CTI's common stock on The NASDAQ Global Market.

In accordance with Marketplace Rule 4450(e)(2), CTI has been provided 180 calendar days, or until October 13, 2008, to regain compliance. The Company will achieve compliance if the bid price of the Company's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days before October 13, 2008. If CTI does not regain compliance by October 13, 2008, it may have the option to transfer its securities to The NASDAQ Capital Market if it can demonstrate as of that date that it meets the criteria for initial listing on this market set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c) (other than the bid price requirement). If such application is approved, CTI would have an additional 180 days to regain compliance while on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

CTI intends to actively monitor the bid price for its common stock between now and October 13, 2008, and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the NASDAQ minimum closing bid price requirement.
