Stellar Biotechnologies Applies for Voluntary Delisting From TSX Venture Exchange

PORT HUENEME, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2016) - Stellar Biotechnologies, Inc. ("Stellar") (NASDAQ: SBOT) (TSX VENTURE: KLH) announced that it has applied for voluntary delisting of the Company's common shares ("Shares") from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V"). The Company's Shares will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") under its symbol "SBOT."

The Board of Directors of the Company made the decision to voluntarily delist from the TSX-V based on the very limited trading volume of the Company's shares on the TSX-V, the costs and resources required to maintain TSX-V listing, and the liquid market for the Company's Shares on Nasdaq. The substantial majority of trades in the Company's Shares now occur on Nasdaq and the Company believes that its Nasdaq listing provides sufficient liquidity for its shareholders. The voluntary delisting from TSX-V will allow the Company to reduce listing fees, costs, and administrative burden associated with listing the Company's Shares on two separate stock exchanges.

Upon approval, the TSX Venture Exchange will issue a bulletin setting the effective date of the voluntary delisting. Thereafter, the Company Shares will trade solely on Nasdaq under Stellar's ticker symbol "SBOT."

Shareholders holding shares in Canadian brokerage accounts should contact their brokers to obtain information on how to trade their shares on Nasdaq.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange), nor any other stock exchange, securities commission or other regulatory authority accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release nor approved or disapproved of the information contained herein.
