Globalstar Announces Delisting From NASDAQ Stock Market

Stocks in this article: GSAT

COVINGTON, La., Dec. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globalstar, Inc. (Nasdaq:GSAT), today announced that it received notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ) that Globalstar's common stock will be delisted effective at the opening of business on Friday, December 21, 2012. NASDAQ is taking this action due to the Company's common stock trading below the minimum bid price of $1.00 in excess of the period permitted by NASDAQ listing rules.

As Globalstar previously announced, in September, 2011, NASDAQ notified the Company that its common stock was no longer in compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share bid price requirement for continued listing. As a result of an appeal initiated by the Company, the period for compliance was extended and any delisting was deferred. Globalstar recently requested a further extension of the compliance period and a deferral of delisting, which was declined by NASDAQ in the notice received on December 19, 2012.

Effective Friday, December 21, 2012, the Company anticipates that its common stock will trade over the counter (OTC) under its current symbol, GSAT.

Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO of Globalstar, Inc., stated, "The board of directors carefully deliberated, over an extended period of time, the advantages and disadvantages of effecting a reverse stock split in order to seek to regain compliance with NASDAQ's listing qualifications, and decided that doing so was not in the Company's or its stockholders' best interests at this time. We remain keenly focused on the execution of our satellite communications and spectrum strategies to drive stockholder value, including completing our fourth Second-Generation satellite launch. We fully intend to seek listing on an accredited exchange as soon as it is feasible to do so."
