TORONTO, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Predictive medicine company PreMD Inc. (TSX: PMD; PREMF.pk) today announced it has been notified by the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") that it is reviewing the eligibility of the Company's common shares for continued listing on the TSX.
The Company is being reviewed under the TSX's Remedial Review Process and has been granted 210 days to comply with all requirements for continued listing. If the Company cannot demonstrate that it meets all TSX listing requirements on or before June 2, 2009, the Company's common shares will be delisted 30 days from such date. A meeting of the TSX's Listings Committee is scheduled to be held on May 28, 2009 to consider whether to delist the common shares of the Company. The TSX has also advised that, if the TSX becomes aware of additional negative developments such that the continued trading or listing of the Company's shares is contrary to the public interest, an expedited listing review could be initiated.
Over the next months, while the Company awaits their FDA appeal decision and other corporate developments, PreMD will evaluate its options in dealing with the TSX and will provide updates as they become available.
