LA JOLLA, Calif., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- TorreyPines Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPTX) announced today that it had received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market notifying the Company that it did not comply with the minimum $10,000,000 stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing set forth in Listing Rule 5450(b)(1)(A), prior to the expiration of the extension granted by the Staff on July 14, 2009. TorreyPines initially received notification from the Staff of its noncompliance with the minimum $10,000,000 stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing on March 31, 2009.

The Company plans to request a hearing before the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to review the Staff determination to delist the Company's common stock. The request for a hearing will stay the Staff determination to delist the Company's common stock until the Panel renders a determination following the hearing. The hearing is expected to be scheduled within 30 to 45 days of the Company's request, which the Company will submit on July 21, 2009.

There can be no assurances that the Listing Qualifications Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Market, in which case the Company's common stock could be delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market.
