PLC Systems Expects Common Stock To Be Delisted From American Stock Exchange

FRANKLIN, Mass., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (AMEX: PLC) today announced that it has not submitted a plan to the American Stock Exchange that would demonstrate its ability to regain compliance with the Exchange's listing standards. Accordingly, the company anticipates that its common stock will be delisted from the American Stock Exchange in the next several weeks, and begin to trade on the over-the-counter bulletin board.

As previously announced, PLC received a notice of failure to meet listing qualifications dated September 17, 2008 from the Listing Qualifications Department staff at the American Stock Exchange. The notice stated that the Company was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(ii) of the AMEX Company Guide because the Company's shareholders' equity was less than $4,000,000 as of June 30, 2008, and it incurred losses from continuing operations and net losses in three out of its four most recent fiscal years.
