ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) today announced that it anticipates that its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for each of the quarters ended June 30, 2007 and September 30, 2007 will be filed in February 2008. The Company anticipates that its shares will continue to be listed on the NASDAQ until such filings are made.

During Q2 2007, the Company made an additional investment of $1 million in a related party, which requires the Company to account for the investment in the related party under the equity method of accounting and to retroactively restate its previously issued consolidated financial statements to reflect the equity method of accounting in prior periods in accordance with Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 18. The Company is in the process of compiling the financial information needed to record the appropriate adjustments for the equity method of accounting in order to file its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for each of the quarters ended June 30, 2007 and September 30, 2007.

The Company had previously announced that the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel issued a decision on November 2, 2007 to give the Company until January 31, 2008 to file its past due Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2007 and regain compliance with NASDAQ's listing requirements. The Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council (the "Listing Council") is reviewing and has stayed the November 2, 2007 decision and has also determined to stay the November 2, 2007 decision to suspend the Company's securities from trading as of January 31, 2008. The Company's shares will continue to be listed on the NASDAQ during the review period, which is anticipated to extend at least through February 2008.
