TorreyPines Therapeutics Receives Notice of Non-Compliance with Nasdaq Continued Listing Requirements

LA JOLLA, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- TorreyPines Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPTX) today announced that on March 31, 2009 it received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that based on the Company's stockholders' equity as reported in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, the Company does not comply with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement of $10 million for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Market as set forth in NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(3).

The Company has until April 15, 2009 to provide a specific plan to achieve and sustain compliance with all of the Nasdaq Global Market continued listing requirements, including a time frame for completion of the plan.

Alternatively, Nasdaq may permit the Company to transfer its common stock to the Nasdaq Capital Market if it satisfies the requirements for continued listing on that market.
