Company to evaluate appeal options
TORONTO, May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Predictive medicine company PreMD Inc. (TSX: PMD; Amex: PME) today announced it has been notified by the American Stock Exchange (the "AMEX") that it will not continue to support PreMD's plan for regaining compliance with the continued listing standards and that it intends to delist the Company's common stock from the Exchange by filing a delisting application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") pursuant to Section 1009(d) of the AMEX Company Guide (the "Company Guide"). The determination by the staff of the AMEX to initiate the delisting of the common stock from the AMEX is based on the Company's failure to meet several of the Exchange's conditions for continued listing.
Presently, the Company continues to be noncompliant with Sections 1003(a)(i), 1003(a)(ii), and 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide, all of which relate to the Company's insufficient stockholder's equity as previously reported in the Company's filings with the SEC. The AMEX also cites deficiencies regarding the Company's ongoing losses and low share price as additional reasons for the staff's determination. The Company is currently evaluating its options in dealing with the AMEX and will provide updates as they become available. It is management's view that PreMD's delisting on the AMEX does not affect its current listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX").
