GoAmerica(R) Receives Nasdaq Letter Regarding Financing Technicality and Confirmation of Regaining Compliance.

HACKENSACK, N.J., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GoAmerica, Inc. , a provider of communications services for people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, or speech-disabled, today announced that it had received a letter from Nasdaq, dated October 16, 2007. The letter states that the Company violated Marketplace Rule 4350(i) in connection with the issuance of shares of its Series A Preferred Stock in August 2007, because, while the conversion of the Preferred Stock into Common Stock without shareholder approval was restricted in the Certificate of Designation, the restriction was only applicable while the Company's Common Stock was listed on Nasdaq or another exchange. The letter also states that the Company has regained compliance with the Rule by forwarding to Nasdaq a copy of an agreement between the purchaser of the Series A Preferred Stock and the Company confirming that such restriction on conversion will remain in place until shareholder approval has been obtained.

As previously announced, the Company has filed preliminary proxy materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission pertaining to various matters to be considered by stockholders at the Annual Meeting. As described in the preliminary proxy materials, the Company's stockholders will be asked to approve the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred Stock in connection with the financing for the Company's acquisition of Verizon's Telecommunications Relay Services ("TRS") division and the Company's merger with Hands On Video Relay Services, Inc.
