Novatel Wireless Receives Notice from Nasdaq Due to Late Filing of Form 10-Q

SAN DIEGO, Aug 15, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Novatel Wireless, Inc.

The Company delayed filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31st and June 30, 2008 as a result of the self-initiated expanded review undertaken by the Company and its Audit Committee of the Company's revenue cut off procedures, internal controls and accounting related to certain customer contracts, which review is ongoing. On July 17, 2008, the Company met with the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel to request an extension of its conditional listing.
