DRWI Bid Price Letter-NASDAQ

OTTAWA, CANADA--(Marketwired - March 5, 2015) - DragonWave Inc. (TSX:DWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI) ("DragonWave" or the "Company") a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced that it received a notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ") that the Company is not in compliance with NASDAQ's Listing Rule 5450(a)(1), as the minimum bid price of DragonWave's common shares has closed below US$1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days. The notification of noncompliance has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of DragonWave's common shares on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol "DRWI".

The Company has 180 days, or until August 31, 2015, to achieve compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the minimum bid price of DragonWave's common shares must meet or exceed US$1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during this 180-day grace period.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule by August 31, 2015, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period. To qualify, the Company would need to transfer the listing of its common shares to The NASDAQ Capital Market, provided that it meets the continued listing requirement for the market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards, with the exception of the bid price requirement. The Company's failure to regain compliance could result in delisting of its common shares on NASDAQ.

Trading of DragonWave common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "DWI" is not affected by the notice from NASDAQ.
