Metalink Receives NASDAQ Notice of Noncompliance

Oct 18, 2010, 14:00 ET from Metalink Ltd

YAKUM, Israel, October 18, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Metalink Ltd. (NASDAQ: MTLK) today announced that it has received notification from The NASDAQ Stock Market that it is no longer in compliance with the continued listing requirements for The NASDAQ Capital Market (Rule 5550(a)(2)) as a result of the closing bid price per share of the Company's ordinary shares falling below the minimum trading price of $1.00 for thirty consecutive business days.

NASDAQ provided Metalink with a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until April 11, 2011, to regain compliance with the bid price requirement before its shares will be delisted from NASDAQ. Compliance is achieved if, at anytime before April 11, 2011, the bid price of the Company's ordinary shares closes at $1.00 per share or more for at least 10 consecutive business days. At the end of such compliance period, the Company may be afforded an additional compliance period of 180 days if it meets the other initial listing requirements of the NASDAQ Capital Market at that time.
