Yak Communications Receives NASDAQ Hearing Panel Letter Regarding Removal of 'E' From Trading Symbol

MIAMI, FLORIDA and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 8, 2005) - Yak Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:YAKCE) today announced that a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel has approved its request for continued listing on the Nasdaq National Market and advises that the fifth character, "E" will be removed from Yak's trading symbol effective with the opening of trading on Thursday June 9, 2005.

The "E" had been added to the Yak trading symbol because the Company had not been in compliance with Nasdaq's listing standards as a result of a delay in filing its Form 10-Qs for the quarters ended December 31, 2004 and March 31, 2005. Both Form 10-Qs were subsequently filed on May 31, 2005. As a result, the Listing Qualifications Panel determined that the Company now has satisfied Nasdaq's filing requirements.
