DENVER, CO, Oct. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Galaxy Energy Corporation (Amex: GAX)
has received a notice from the American Stock Exchange (Amex) indicating that
Amex has accepted Galaxy's amended plan to regain compliance with the
exchange's continued listing standards.
On October 15, 2007, Amex notified Galaxy that the company had made a
reasonable demonstration of its ability to regain compliance with the
exchange's continued listing standards based on the plan submitted to Amex on
August 30, 2007. Amex has accepted Galaxy's plan based on the expectation that
Galaxy will complete a sale of certain of its assets and utilize the proceeds
to pay down a significant portion of its outstanding debt. Amex has continued
Galaxy's listing pursuant to an extension until December 31, 2007, by which
time Galaxy must regain compliance with the continued listing standards.
Galaxy will be subject to periodic review by Amex staff during the extension
period. 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 Galaxy being delisted from Amex.
The notice from Amex reiterates Galaxy's failure to satisfy Section
1003(a)(i), Section 1003(a)(ii), and Section 1003(a)(iii) of the Amex Company
Guide for continued listing. Specifically, Galaxy has reported stockholders'
equity of less than $2 million and losses from continuing operations and/or
net losses in two out of its three most recent fiscal years; has reported
stockholders' equity of less than $4 million and losses from continuing
operations and/or net losses in three out of its four most recent fiscal
years; and has reported stockholders' equity of less than $6 million with
losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in its five most recent
fiscal years, respectively.
On September 4, 2007, Galaxy announced that the company and its wholly
owned subsidiary Dolphin Energy Corporation have begun discussions with

leaseholds in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming. Galaxy intends to sell a
portion of the Powder River Basin assets with sufficient market value to allow
Galaxy to either fully repay or substantially repay its senior debt.
Dolphin owns an average 86% working interest in 197 oil and gas wells in
the Powder River Basin. Twenty-two wells are currently selling gas at an
