MENLO PARK, Calif., May 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- XTENT, Inc.

The Company intends to hold a special meeting of the stockholders to seek approval of the Plan of Dissolution and today it filed related proxy materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Although the Company's Board of Directors has approved the Plan of Dissolution, it will continue to consider any reasonable alternative strategic proposals presented to the Company.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risks and uncertainties concerning XTENT's proposed liquidation and dissolution. Actual results may differ materially from the results predicted. We believe that these potential risks and uncertainties include the possibility that dissolution and liquidation may not be approved by the stockholders or may be delayed, the possibility that no reasonable strategic alternatives to the dissolution and liquidation of XTENT become available, and that distributions to stockholders may take several years to complete. In addition, no assurance can be given as to the amount of cash actually to be distributed to the stockholders. Statements in this release should be evaluated in light of these important factors. More information about these and other important factors that could affect our business and financial results is included in the "Risk Factors" section of our quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 15, 2009.
