Radient Pharmaceuticals Receives Non-Compliance Notice From NYSE Amex Regarding Its 10-K Filing

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 28, 2011) - Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation (RPC) (NYSE Amex: RPC) announced today that, as anticipated, RPC received a letter dated April 25, 2011 from NYSE Amex, LLC (the "Exchange") stating that because RPC, as previously disclosed, did not file its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 (the "Form 10K") on or before April 15, 2011, RPC is non-compliant with Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE Amex Company Guide (the "Company Guide"). Upon the occurrence of such noncompliance, the Exchange is required to issue a deficiency letter to the subject issuer and the Exchange rules require the subject issuer to publicly announce receipt of same.

As RPC publicly announced in its April 21, 2011 press release, the Exchange's Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel") granted RPC's request for additional time (until June 23, 2011) to demonstrate and regain compliance with the Exchange's continued listing requirements; one of the requirements to regaining compliance is that RPC must file the Form 10K on or before June 23, 2011. Accordingly, although the Exchange was required to submit the April 25, 2011 deficiency letter to RPC, RPC has until June 23, 2011 to file the Form 10K and regain compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the Company Guide. Failure to comply with these sections by such date, would subject RPC to delisting procedures. As previously disclosed, the Company is diligently working toward filing the Form 10K by the middle to end of May, although it does have until June 23, 2011 to file same to regain compliance with the Exchange's continued listing standards; however, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so.
