Sunesis Receives Approval for Listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market
Date:7/30/2009

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNSS), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of new oncology therapeutics for the treatment of solid and hematologic cancers, today announced that NASDAQ has approved its application to transfer the listing of its common stock from The NASDAQ Global Market to The NASDAQ Capital Market. The transfer will be effective at the opening of the market on August 3, 2009. Sunesis will continue to trade under the symbol "SNSS."

The NASDAQ Capital Market is a continuous trading market that operates in the same manner as The NASDAQ Global Market. All companies listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market must meet certain financial requirements and adhere to NASDAQ's corporate governance standards. Sunesis requested the transfer of its listing based upon the company's compliance with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement and all other applicable criteria for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, but for the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement, which has been suspended by NASDAQ through August 2, 2009. As a result of the market transfer, Sunesis is no longer subject to delisting from NASDAQ as a result of the previously disclosed stockholders' equity deficiency as of December 31, 2008, but it will need to comply with The NASDAQ Capital Market's continued listing requirements on an ongoing basis.
