Regency Affiliates, Inc. Announced Claims Dismissed

Nov 09, 2004, 00:00 ET from Regency Affiliates, Inc.

    JENSEN BEACH, Fla., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Regency Affiliates,
 Inc. (RAFI.OB) announced today that the Court in the action entitled Gatz et
 al. v. Ponsoldt, Sr., et al. pending in the New Castle County Court of
 Chancery, Delaware dismissed all but one claim alleged in the complaint.
 Management believes that the sole surviving claim, which relates to the
 December 2001 sale of assets from one Regency subsidiary to another Regency
 subsidiary, is without merit and, even if successful, would not be material to
 the Company or its financial condition.
     The complaint had challenged several transactions that occurred between
 2001 and 2003, including Regency's October 2002 recapitalization and the 2003
 payment of accrued compensation to the Company's former president.  In
 dismissing the claims, the Court determined that all of the claims (other than
 the claim related to the 2001 asset sale) were derivative in nature and that
 the claims could therefore not be maintained.  A copy of the Court's opinion
 will be available in due course on the Company's website
     Reacting to the Court's decision, Laurence S. Levy, Regency's President
 and Chief Executive officer, said: "We are delighted with the Court's
 decision.  Shareholders should be pleased that the Company will no longer need
 to allocate its resources to defending the dismissed claims."
