Shares to Remain Listed until Final Hearing Panel Determination

DayStar Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: DSTI), a developer of solar photovoltaic products based on CIGS thin-film deposition technology announced today that on March 16, 2010 it received an additional Nasdaq Staff Determination Letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market. The Nasdaq Letter states the Company's common stock is subject to delisting because the price of the Company’s common stock did not comply with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) within the initial 180 days provided under Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A).

As previously announced on March 11, 2010, the Company presented its compliance plan to the Nasdaq Hearings Panel, which included information regarding the rescheduled annual meeting and a proposed reverse stock split. The Company’s securities will remain listed on Nasdaq until the Hearings Panel makes a final determination. While the Company is confident that its compliance plan will meet the requirements for continued listing on Nasdaq, there can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing.

The Company greatly appreciates the participation of the shareholders who cast their votes in the earlier meetings, and shareholders who have questions about the upcoming adjourned annual meeting and the reverse split may review the Company’s definitive proxy statement, which can be found at http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml.
