TeamStaff Granted 180-Day Extension by Nasdaq to Regain Compliance With Minimum Bid Price Rule

SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - TeamStaff, Inc., (NASDAQ: TSTF) a leading healthcare and logistics services provider to the Federal Government and Department of Defense, today announced that it received a letter, dated November 30, 2010, from The Nasdaq Stock Market notifying TeamStaff that it has met all of the requirements to be granted an additional 180-day compliance period, or until May 31, 2011, to regain compliance with the $1.00 per share minimum bid price rule for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The letter states that although the Company had not regained compliance with the listing rule, it was eligible for the second grace period since it satisfied the other applicable requirements for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The new compliance period is an extension of the initial 180-day period provided for in Nasdaq's deficiency notice to TeamStaff, dated June 1, 2010. 

The Company may achieve compliance during the additional 180-day period if the closing bid price of the Company's common stock is at least a $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days before May 31, 2011. This notification has no immediate effect on the Company's listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market or on the trading of the Company's common stock. If the Company does not regain compliance during the second compliance period, Nasdaq will provide written notice that the Company's common stock is subject to delisting from The Nasdaq Capital Market. In that event, the Company may appeal such determination to a hearings panel. There can be no guarantee that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Nasdaq listing rule.
