Deer Valley Corporation Dramatically Reduces Dilutive Derivative Obligations Through Repurchase of Outstanding Warrants

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - October 15, 2010) -  Deer Valley Corporation, ("Deer Valley" or the "Company") (OTCBB: DVLY), announced today that it has repurchased 72.6% (or 82.3% of the fair value) of the Company's outstanding warrants as of June 30, 2010. The warrants were offered to the Company by its majority owner in the interest of facilitating the Company's stated efforts to increase shareholder value through the reduction of the number outstanding securities. The purchase announced herein results in the total elimination of three series of outstanding warrants and a significant reduction in the number of other warrants that remain outstanding. In accordance with current GAAP accounting rules regarding the valuation of our outstanding warrant liability, the warrants being acquired were valued at $245,746 on the Company's balance sheet for the quarter ending, June 30, 2010. Any increase in the Company's share price in future quarters would have tended to cause this liability to increase with an accompanying negative effect on the Company's earnings statements. The purchase price for the block of warrants was $40,000.

Deer Valley's CFO, Steve Lawler, commented, "The clear objectives of this transaction were: (1) to increase shareholder value by reducing the complexity of the Company's capital structure; (2) to reduce the volatility of stated earning resulting from the requirement to revaluing our derivative financial instruments each quarter; and (3) to permanently reduce the accrued liability associated with these derivatives. We're very pleased to announce that our majority shareholder, understanding the benefits of this action to all our shareholders, has been willing to facilitate our elimination of these warrants."
