American Stock Exchange Accepts PreMD's Continued Listing Plan



    TORONTO, June 19 /CNW/ - Predictive medicine company PreMD Inc. (TSX:
PMD; Amex:   PME) received notice on June 15, 2007 that the American Stock
Exchange (the "AMEX") had accepted its plan to regain compliance with the
continued listing standards, and that the Company's listing will be continued
pursuant to an extension. The Company will be subject to periodic review by
the AMEX Staff during the extension period, which ends on October 24, 2008.
Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with
the continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could
result in the Company being delisted from the AMEX.
    PreMD's president and chief executive officer, Brent Norton, said, "We
are very pleased that the American Stock Exchange has accepted the Company's
plan for continued listing. We have recently made significant efforts towards
regaining this status and the listing on the American Stock Exchange is an
important part of our strategy. We are now able to continue with our Company
focus, while maintaining our listing on the AMEX."
    As previously announced, the Company was notified in April 2007 that it
was below certain of the Exchange's continuing listing standards. PreMD does
not meet the AMEX requirements of Sections 1003 (a)(i) of the AMEX Company
Guide for the Company's failure in regards to shareholders' equity of less
than US $2,000,000 and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in
two out of its three most recent fiscal years; section 1003(a)(ii) of the
Company Guide with shareholders' equity of less than US $4,000,000 and losses
from continuing operations and/or net losses in three out of its four most
recent fiscal years; and section 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide with
shareholders' equity of less than US $6,000,000 and losses from continuing
operations and/or net losses in its five most recent fiscal years. The Company
submitted a plan for regaining compliance with the AMEX continued listing
standards on May 18, 2007.
    PreMD's continued listing is contingent on its continuation to provide
the AMEX Staff with updates in conjunction with the initiatives of its plan,
as appropriate or upon request, but no later than at each quarter completion
concurrent with the Company's appropriate filing with the Securities and
Exchange Commission. In addition, the AMEX Staff will review PreMD
periodically for compliance with its plan and progress consistent with its
plan.
