EMERYVILLE, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bionovo, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNVI) today announced that on September 15, 2009, the company received a letter from NASDAQ stating that, for the last 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of its common stock has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The letter further stated that the company has been provided a period of 180 calendar days, or until March 15, 2010, to regain compliance. If, at anytime before March 15, 2010, the bid price of the common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, NASDAQ has indicated that it will provide written notification that compliance has been regained.

In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the rule prior to the expiration of the period, it will receive written notification that its securities are subject to delisting.
