Plug Power Receives NASDAQ Notice Of Non-Compliance

LATHAM, N.Y., Dec. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plug Power Inc. (Nasdaq:PLUG), a leader in providing clean, reliable energy solutions, today announced that, on December 7, 2010, the Company received a Staff Determination letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that the Company has not regained compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the "Minimum Bid Price Rule") because the Company's common stock did not maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share over a period of 10 consecutive business days ending on or prior to December 6, 2010. As a result, the Company's common stock would be subject to delisting from The NASDAQ Capital Market ® unless the Company requests a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel").

Accordingly, the Company plans to timely request a hearing before the Panel, which request will stay the delisting of the Company's common stock pending the issuance of a decision by the Panel following the hearing. At the hearing, the Company will present its plan for achieving compliance with the applicable NASDAQ listing requirements. However, there can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

The Company is currently in compliance with all NASDAQ listing requirements other than the Minimum Bid Price Rule.
