Nile Therapeutics Receives NASDAQ Notice; Will Request Hearing

SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Nile Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLTX), a company focused on the development of novel therapeutics for heart failure patients, today announced that, as anticipated, on November 30, 2010, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Staff (the "Staff") of The NASDAQ Stock Market (the "Staff Determination") notifying the Company that, based on its failure to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), the Company's common stock would be subject to delisting from The NASDAQ Capital Market unless the Company requests a hearing before the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel").

The Company intends to request a hearing before the Panel, which will stay any action with respect to the Staff Determination until the Panel renders a decision subsequent to the hearing.  There can be no assurance that following the hearing the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

The Staff Determination follows a notification from the Staff dated June 1, 2010, which was disclosed by the Company on June 4, 2010, indicating that the minimum bid price of the Company's common stock had been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days and that the Company had 180 calendar days, or until November 29, 2010, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.
