Vertro, Inc. Regains NASDAQ Compliance

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 1, 2010) - Vertro, Inc. (NASDAQ: VTROD) today announced that NASDAQ has notified the Company that it regained compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share bid price requirement for continued listing, and further, that it complies with all other applicable standards for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market. Accordingly, the Company will continue to be listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

As previously announced, following a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel"), the Panel determined to continue the Company's listing subject to the condition that, on or before September 13, 2010, the Company evidence a closing bid price of $1.00 per share or more for at least the ten prior consecutive trading days, among other things. On August 31, 2010, the Company's closing bid price was $2.00 per share, the tenth consecutive day it had exceeded the $1.00 per share threshold. Accordingly, the Company satisfied the Panel's condition and the bid price deficiency has been cured.

"We're delighted to have regained compliance with all applicable NASDAQ standards and to be focusing our efforts on growing our user base and revenue," commented Peter Corrao, Vertro's President and CEO. "We are enjoying sustained growth in our user base as we move through the third quarter, and continue to expect to achieve double digit sequential quarterly revenue growth."

Vertro's shares will continue to trade on NASDAQ under the symbol "VTROD" until the close of trading on Wednesday, September 15, 2010, at which point the fifth character "D" will drop off and the symbol will revert to "VTRO." The temporary addition of the letter "D" to Vertro's trading symbol is to indicate that a reverse stock split has occurred.
