By May 1, 2015

NovaBay® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: NBY) today announced receipt of a letter from NYSE MKT LLC (“NYSE MKT” or the “Exchange”) on April 28, 2015, stating that its stockholders equity, as of December 31, 2014, is below the minimum requirements of Sections 1003(a)(ii) and (iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (the “Company Guide”).

In order to maintain its listing, NovaBay Pharmaceuticals must submit a plan of compliance by May 28, 2015, addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Section(s) 1003(a)(ii)-(iii) of the Company Guide within 18 months, or by November 28, 2016.

If the plan is accepted, NovaBay Pharmaceuticals may be able to continue its listing but will be subject to periodic reviews by the Exchange. If the plan is not accepted or if it is accepted but NovaBay Pharmaceuticals is not in compliance with the continued listing standards within 18 months, or by November 28, 2016, or if NovaBay Pharmaceuticals does not make progress consistent with the plan, the Exchange will initiate delisting procedures as appropriate.

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals’ management is pursuing options to address the deficiency and intends to submit a compliance plan on or before the deadline set by the Exchange.
