Posted: Friday, October 5, 2007
SPACEHAB, Incorporated (NASDAQ:SPAB), a leading provider of commercial space services, today announced its receipt of a NASDAQ Staff Determination letter on October 2, 2007 indicating that the Company fails to comply with NASDAQ Marketplace Rules 4310(c)(4) and 4310(c)(3), and that its securities are, therefore, subject to delisting from The NASDAQ Capital Market.
Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4) requires that the Company maintain a $1.00 bid price. Following earlier notices of non-compliance with the requirement, the Company was granted a grace period, which expired on October 1, 2007. As previously announced on September 28, 2007, the Company is also not in compliance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3) which requires the Company to have $500,000 of net income from continuing operations for the most recently completed fiscal year or two of the three most recently completed fiscal years; or $35,000,000 market value of listed securities; or $2,500,000 in stockholders' equity.
The Company plans to request a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel to present its plan of compliance and request continued listing pending the completion of the plan. However, there can be no assurance the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing.
