The Quigley Corporation Announces Final Voting Results for 2009 Annual Meeting of Shareholders; Judge Orders Incumbent Board to Remain In Place Until Further Hearing; Final Outcome of Director Election Remains Uncertain
Date:6/1/2009

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quigley Corporation, (Nasdaq: QGLY), www.quigleyco.com, today announced that IVS Associates, Inc., the inspector of election for Quigley's 2009 annual meeting of shareholders, issued its final report, showing that Ted Karkus' seven director nominees received a larger number of votes than Quigley's incumbent directors.

The Company also announced that despite the final voting results issued today by IVS, the final outcome of the director election remains uncertain. On May 19, 2009, one day before the Company's 2009 Annual Meeting, the Company announced it had uncovered an undisclosed financial arrangement between Karkus and the Company's Quigley Pharma, Inc. subsidiary COO, Dr. Richard A. Rosenbloom. Karkus had previously stated in sworn testimony that at no time did he have any financial arrangement with any employee of The Quigley Corporation. Since the Annual Meeting, the Company has learned that Dr. Rosenbloom may have also had undisclosed financial arrangements with one of Karkus' director nominees and with John Ligums, an alleged member of the Karkus Group.

On May 29, 2009, upon a motion by the Company detailing these recent developments, the District Court Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania ordered the Company to operate under a standstill agreement with respect to the composition of the Company's Board of Directors pending a Court hearing on the motion. The Company expects the motion will be heard by Friday, June 5, 2009.
