FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NYSE ALTERNEXT NOTIFIES INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS
CORPORATION THAT IT IS NONCOMPLIANT WITH LISTING
Norcross, Georgia – December 23, 2008 – Intelligent Systems Corporation (NYSE Alternext: INS; intelys.com) has received notice from NYSE Alternext US (the “Exchange”) that the Exchange has determined that the company is not in compliance with a certain continued listing standard of the Exchange. Specifically, the Exchange noted that the company’s shareholders equity was below $4 million and the company had incurred losses in three of the four most recent fiscal years.
To maintain an Exchange listing, we must submit a plan by January 19, 2009 which demonstrates that the company will be back in compliance with the continued listing standards within a maximum of 18 months from the date of notification by the Exchange. We presently intend to submit a plan to the Exchange by January 19, 2009.
The Exchange will evaluate our plan and determine whether we have made a reasonable demonstration in the plan of our ability to regain compliance with the continued listing standards within 18 months. If the Exchange accepts our plan, we may be able to continue our listing during the plan period, during which time we will be subject to periodic review to determine if we are making progress consistent with the plan. If the Exchange does not accept our plan, we do not submit a plan, we fail to make progress consistent with our plan, or we are not in compliance by the end of the 18 month period, the Exchange may initiate delisting proceedings with respect to our Common Stock. We have the right to appeal any determination by the Exchange to initiate delisting proceedings.
Our Common Stock continues to trade on the Exchange under the symbol INS; however, our trading symbol will have an indicator .BC added as an extension to signify our noncompliance with the continued listing standards. Within five days of the December 18, 2008 letter from the Exchange, our company will be included in a list on the Exchange website of issuers that do not comply with the listing standards. The .BC indicator will remain as an extension on our trading symbol until we have regained compliance with all applicable continued listing standards.
