(Nasdaq:PDFS), the leading provider of yield improvement technologies and services for the integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing process life cycle, today announced that the Company received a letter on August 6, 2008 from the staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the Company is not currently in compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4350(d)(2), which requires listed companies to have at least three members on the Board's Audit Committee, and Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4350(c)(1), which requires listed companies to have a majority of independent board members. Such notice was the result of the August 4, 2008 resignation of Susan H.
