Butler Announces Granting of Extension of Deadline to File Form 10-K and Form 10-Q by NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel

MONTVALE, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 18, 2005 -- Butler International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BUTLE) announced today the issuance of a decision by the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel granting the Company an extension to July 29, 2005 for filing of its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004, and its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2005. The Company expects that both the Form 10-K and the Form 10-Q will be filed on or before July 29, 2005. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-K or the Form 10-Q on or before July 29, 2005, the Company expects to request an additional extension from NASDAQ for the time to file such documents, although no assurance can be given that NASDAQ will agree to such extension.

In connection with the audit of its 2004 consolidated financial statements, the Company believes the review of its accounting treatment of Chief Executive Magazine, a related party, for the years ended December 31, 2004 and 2003 has been completed. Based on its review of the transaction with Chief Executive Magazine, the Company expects to include all of the accounts receivable and note receivable from Chief Executive Magazine in the Company's long-term assets for 2004, but does not expect any change to its earnings, or any other adjustment to its financial statements.

Pending determination of compliance with NASDAQ's filing requirements and compliance with all other requirements for continued listing on NASDAQ, the fifth character "E" will remain appended to the Company's trading symbol. The Company is currently compliant with all other applicable NASDAQ rules.
