Digital Video Systems Will be Delisted by The Nasdaq SmallCap Market

 
     
  Palo Alto, CA., 07/14/05

On July 13, 2005, Digital Video Systems, Inc (NASDAQ: DVIDE) received a letter from the Nasdaq Listings Qualification Panel (the "Panel") notifying Digital Video that the Panel has denied the Company's request for continued inclusion on The Nasdaq SmallCap Market. The Company's common stock will be delisted from The Nasdaq SmallCap Market effective with the open of business on Friday July 15, 2005. This action follows the Company's appeal to the Panel for a listing exception for the Company’'s inability to meet Nasdaq's stockholders’ equity requirements and the Company's failure to have its quarterly report on Form 10- Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2005 reviewed by its auditors prior to filing. The Company intends to appeal the Panel's decision to the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Counsel within the 15-day period provided for such appeals.

The Company's common stock is not currently eligible to trade on the OTC Bulletin Board because, as described above, the Company is not current in its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The Company expects that quotations for its common stock will appear in the National Daily Quotations Journal, often referred to as the "pink sheets," where subscribing dealers can submit bid and ask prices on a daily basis. However, there can be no assurances that the Company's common stock will be eligible for trading or quotation on any alternative exchanges or markets. The Company will disclose further timing and trading symbol information regarding the trading of its common stock when such information becomes available.

Upon the completion of the auditors' review of the Company's quarterly report for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2005, the Company's common stock may be eligible for trading on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company is committed to regaining compliance with all listing requirements and relisting its common stock as soon as possible.
