Amedica Receives Nasdaq Listing Determination; Plans to Request Hearing

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/17 -- Amedica Corporation (NASDAQ: AMDA) (the "Company"), an innovative biomaterial company that develops and manufactures silicon nitride as a platform for biomedical applications, disclosed today that on August 22, 2017, it received notification from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Staff indicating that the Company's continued non-compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share bid price requirement could serve as a basis for delisting from Nasdaq as could the Company's continued non-compliance with Nasdaq's filing requirement unless the Company timely requests a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the "Panel").

The Company intends to timely request a hearing before the Panel, at which hearing it will present its plan to evidence compliance with all requirements for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company's request for a hearing will stay any suspension/delisting action by Nasdaq at least pending the issuance of the Panel's decision following the hearing and the expiration of any extension granted to the Company by the Panel.

The Company is diligently working to evidence compliance with all applicable requirements for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market; however, there can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing or that the Company will regain compliance with the applicable criteria within the period of time that may be granted by the Panel.
