SPACEHAB, Incorporated, a leading provider of commercial space services, announced receipt of a Nasdaq Staff Deficiency letter on February 8, 2006 indicating that the Company is below the minimum equity requirement of $10.0 million and accordingly does not comply with Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(3).
Nasdaq stated in its notice that it is reviewing the Company's eligibility for continued listing on the Nasdaq National Market. In order to facilitate the review, SPACEHAB has been asked and means to submit a plan by February 23, 2006 on how the Company intends to achieve and sustain compliance with Nasdaq National Market listing requirements. In the event the Company is unable to deliver a plan acceptable to Nasdaq, SPACEHAB would expect to receive notification that its securities will be delisted. At that time, the Company has the option to appeal the Staff's decision to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel.
