SPACEHAB Announces Receipt of NASDAQ Deficiency Letter

SPACEHAB, Incorporated (NASDAQ:SPAB), a leading provider of commercial space services, today announced that as a result of the resignation of Dr. Edward E. David Jr. as a director of SPACEHAB, Inc. effective July 31, 2007, the Company received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market notifying the Company that it no longer complies with the NASDAQ independent director requirements.

Consistent with Marketplace Rule 4350(c)(1), which requires that a majority of the board of directors consist of independent directors, NASDAQ will provide the Company a cure period in order to regain compliance until the earlier of the Company’s next annual shareholder’s meeting, or July 31, 2008; or if the next annual shareholder’s meeting is held before January 28, 2008, then the Company must evidence compliance no later than January 28, 2008.

SPACEHAB’s fiscal year ended on June 31, 2007 and historically, the Company has held its annual meeting in November or December. If the Company fails to regain compliance within this cure period, its common stock is subject to delisting upon notification of such a determination by NASDAQ staff, which determination may be appealed.
