NEW YORK, May 31, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Vringo, Inc. (NYSE Amex: VRNG), a provider of software platforms for mobile video applications and video ringtones, today announced that, on May 24, 2011, the Company received a deficiency notice from the NYSE Amex LLC ("Amex" or the "Exchange") that, based on the Exchange's review of the Company's most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Exchange's continued listing standards, since in the opinion of the Exchange, the Company's losses bring into question whether it will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature.

In order to maintain listing of its securities on the Exchange, the Company must submit a plan by June 23, 2011, addressing how the Company intends to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) by September 30, 2011. The Company intends to submit such a plan by the June 23, 2011 deadline. If the Exchange accepts the plan, then the Company may be able to continue its listing during the plan period, up to September 30, 2011, during which time the Company will be subject to periodic reviews to determine whether it is making progress consistent with the plan.

Jon Medved, CEO of Vringo, stated, "The plan we will submit to Amex will demonstrate that we are diligently focused on improving our financial results and building our business."

Mr. Medved added, "The plan will also provide that we are engaged in advanced discussions with various parties regarding a number of potential strategic transactions, including raising additional capital, that can be concluded in the near-term. We believe these transactions, if consummated, will enable us to regain compliance with the NYSE Amex's listing standards."
