Axonyx Receives Notice Related to Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Rule.

NEW YORK -- Axonyx Inc. (NASDAQ: AXYX), a U.S.-based biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it received notice on December 21, 2005 from The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. that the minimum bid price of the Company's common stock had fallen below $1.00 for 30 consecutive business days and that the Company was therefore not in compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4).

In accordance with the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, the Company has until June 19, 2006, (180 calendar days from December 21, 2005) to regain compliance.

The Company can regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule if the bid price of its common stock closes at $1.00 or higher for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during the initial 180-day period, although Nasdaq may, in its discretion, require the Company to maintain a bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a period in excess of ten consecutive business days (but generally no more than 20 consecutive business days) before determining that the Company has demonstrated the ability to maintain long-term compliance. If compliance is not achieved by June 19, 2006, the Company will be eligible for an additional 180-day compliance period if it meets the Nasdaq SmallCap Market initial listing criteria as set forth in Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c) other than the minimum bid price requirement. If the Company is not eligible for an additional compliance period, or does not regain compliance during any additional compliance period, Nasdaq will provide written notice to the Company that its securities will be delisted. At such time, the Company would be able to appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel.
