PreMD Receives Notice from the American Stock Exchange



    TORONTO, April 25 /CNW/ - Predictive medicine company PreMD Inc. (TSX:
PMD; Amex:   PME) ("PreMD") today announced it received a letter from the
American Stock Exchange (AMEX) stating that AMEX has determined that PreMD is
not in compliance with certain continued listing standards, as set forth in
Part 10 of the AMEX Company Guide (the "Company Guide"), and therefore has
become subject to the procedures and requirements of Section 1009 of the
Company Guide.
    Specifically, PreMD is not in compliance with section 1003(a)(i) of the
Company Guide with 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. This letter does not impact
PreMD's listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).
    In order to maintain its AMEX listing, PreMD must submit a business plan
to the AMEX by May 24, 2007, advising AMEX of the action PreMD has taken, or
will take, to bring it into compliance with the relevant continued listing
standards within a maximum of 18 months. If, after evaluation by the Listing
Qualifications Department, the AMEX determines that PreMD's plan provides a
reasonable demonstration of an ability to regain compliance with the continued
listing standards within 18 months, PreMD's plan will be accepted and PreMD
may be permitted to continue its listing during the plan period. During this
time, PreMD will be subject to periodic review to determine whether it is
making progress consistent with its plan.
    "This notice is based on our financial reports for the period ended
December 31, 2006. Since that time, we have completed a private placement for
gross proceeds of CDN $3,879,965, which will be reflected in our first quarter
financials. We have already taken some actions that would lead us towards
compliance, which will be reflected in the business plan we submit to the
Exchange," said Dr. Norton, President and Chief Executive Officer of PreMD.
"In regard to the business, we continue to make steady progress and remain on
track with our 2007 stated objectives which include: entering into strategic
partnerships for PREVU(*) and for our complete line of oncology products,
expanding the market for PREVU(*), as well as advancing our cancer clinical
program. We believe we are well positioned for continued growth."
