Cardima(Fremont, California), developer of the Revelation Tx, Revelation T-Flex and Revelations Helix microcatheter systems for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), received a Nasdaq staff determination indicating that the company had not regained compliance with the requirements for continued listing set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4) and that its securities are, therefore, subject to delisting from the Nasdaq SmallCap Market at the opening of business on May 17.

The rule provides that for continued inclusion on the Nasdaq Stock Market, the minimum bid price per share of an issuer shall be at least $1.

On May 10, 2004, Nasdaq staff notified Cardima that the bid price of its common stock had closed at less than $1 over the previous 30 business days, and, as a result, the company did not comply with the rule. The company was provided 180 calendar days, or until Nov. 8, 2004, to regain compliance with the rule.

On Nov. 9, 2004, given that Cardima had met initial inclusion criteria, it was provided an additional 180 calendar day compliance period, or until May 5, to demonstrate compliance. But the company had not regained compliance with the rule by that date.

The company may appeal the Nasdaq decision.
