MINNEAPOLIS, April 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urologix®, Inc. (Nasdaq:ULGX),
the leading provider of in-office BPH therapy, announced today that the NASDAQ
Hearings Panel (the "Panel") of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") has
granted the Company's request for a further extension to regain compliance
with the listing requirements of the NASDAQ.
As previously reported, the Company's stock was subject to delisting due to
the Company's failure to comply with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement
of Rule 5550(a)(2). The Company had requested a hearing before the NASDAQ
Listing Qualifications Panel to seek continued listing. On April 16, 2013, the
Company received notification that the Panel had extended the Company's
compliance period until June 17, 2013 to cure the minimum bid price
deficiency.By that date, the closing bid price for the Company's stock must
be $1.00 or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.
In addition, the Company must comply with Rule 5550(b)(1), which requires the
Company to maintain minimum shareholders' equity of $2.5 million.As of
December 31, 2012 the Company's shareholders' equity was $2.55 million and
with the release of the financial results for the quarter ending March 31,
2013 the Company expects its shareholders' equity to be below the minimum
requirement.This compliance issue was also discussed with the Panel.The
Panel provided the Company until September 30, 2013 to remedy the minimum
shareholders' equity requirement.This extension is subject to the Company
providing a written update to the Panel by July 30, 2013 regarding the status
of its efforts to achieve compliance with this requirement.
