PURE Bioscience Receives Favorable NASDAQ Listing Decision

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2013) - PURE Bioscience (NASDAQ: PURE), creator of the patented silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial, today announced that the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel") has granted the Company's request for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market pursuant to an extension through June 18, 2013 to evidence compliance with the minimum $2.5 million stockholders' equity requirement and its ability to sustain compliance with the minimum threshold over the long term.
