Valentis, Inc. (VLTS) Receives NASDAQ Delisting Notice


5/18/2007 12:48:22 PM

BURLINGAME, Calif., May 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Valentis, Inc. announced today that it has received notification from The Nasdaq Stock Market that its securities will be delisted from the Nasdaq Capital Market at the opening of business on May 21, 2007. The Nasdaq delisting notice was based upon the failure of Valentis to achieve certain milestones under its plan of compliance, as presented to the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel on March 1, 2007, by certain specified dates.

While Valentis' common stock will not be immediately eligible for quotation on the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc.'s Over-The- Counter Bulletin Board, it will become eligible if a market maker applies to register in and quote the shares in accordance with Rule 15c2-11 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and such application is approved by the NASD. Valentis has been informed that at least one market maker, Empire Financial Group, Inc., has made such an application with respect to Valentis' common stock on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board. However, there can be no assurance that its application will be granted. In the meantime, Valentis anticipates that its common stock will be eligible for quotation on the National Quotation Bureau's "pink sheets."
