Nile Therapeutics Receives Notice Related to Nasdaq Minimum Closing Bid Price Rule

SAN MATEO, Calif., June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nile Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLTX), a company focused on the development of novel therapeutics for heart failure patients, today announced that, on June 1, 2010, the Company received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the minimum closing bid price of its common stock had fallen below $1.00 for 30 consecutive trading days, and therefore, Nile was not in compliance with Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2). The Company has been provided 180 calendar days, or until November 29, 2010, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. This notice does not impact the Company's listing on Nasdaq at this time.

Nile can regain compliance with the minimum closing bid price rule if the bid price of its common stock closes at $1.00 or higher for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the initial 180-day compliance period.

If Nile does not regain compliance within the initial 180-day period, but otherwise meets the listing standards, Nasdaq will notify the Company that it has an additional 180 days to regain compliance. If Nile is not eligible for an additional compliance period, or does not regain compliance during any additional compliance period, Nasdaq will provide written notice to the Company that its securities are subject to delisting. At such time, Nile may appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel.
