Merge Technologies Receives Expected Additional NASDAQ Notification

    Company expects to satisfy all requirements for continued listing and make
    all necessary filings by December 31, 2007

    MILWAUKEE, Nov. 16 /CNW/ -- Merge Technologies Incorporated, d.b.a. Merge
Healthcare (Nasdaq:   MRGE; TSX: MRG) (the "Company") today announced that the
Company received a written notification from the staff of The NASDAQ Stock
Market on November 13, 2007, stating that the Company's failure to timely file
its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2007
would serve as an additional basis for delisting the Company's common stock
from The NASDAQ Stock Market.  The Company expected to receive the NASDAQ
notification due to the Company not filing its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
September 30, 2007.  This notification is in addition to prior NASDAQ staff
notifications stating that the common stock was subject to delisting because
the Company did not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the
quarter ended June 30, 2007.
    The Company previously announced its receipt of a written notification
from the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel stating that the panel determined
to continue the listing of the Company's common stock on the NASDAQ Global
Market, subject to the Company's filing its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
June 30, 2007 and all required restatements by no later than January 29, 2008.
The Company will also need to file its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
September 30, 2007 by that date to regain compliance with the NASDAQ listing
standards.  The Company expects that it will meet the deadlines set by the
NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel.
    As indicated in the Company's news release dated October 29, 2007, the
Company currently expects to file, on or before December 31, 2007:  (i) its
restated audited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2004,
2005 and 2006, as well as other restated financial information previously
included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2006, (ii) its restated unaudited financial statements included
in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, and
(iii) its unaudited Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended June
30, 2007 and September 30, 2007.
