RENO, NV--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2014) -  Altair Nanotechnologies, Inc. ("Altair") (NASDAQ: ALTI) reports the Company received a non-compliance letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq").

On August 18, 2014, Altair received a letter from Nasdaq indicating that Altair was not in compliance with continuous listing rule 5250(c)(1) due to its failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.
