WorldHeart Receives Favorable Decision to Continue NASDAQ Listing
Date:9/15/2008

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (Nasdaq: WHRT) World Heart Corporation ("WorldHeart") announced today that on September 11, 2008, following a review by a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel, NASDAQ has determined that WorldHeart's common stock will continue to be listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market. Additionally, on September 9, 2008, WorldHeart received a letter from the NASDAQ stating that the Company has regained compliance with the requirement to have a minimum market value of publicly held shares ("MVPHS") of $1,000,000 for at least 10 consecutive trading days as required by the The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(7).

As previously disclosed on June 25, 2008, the Company received a staff deficiency letter from the NASDAQ informing the Company that for the previous 30 consecutive trading days it had not maintained the minimum market value of publicly held shares of $1,000,000 and that the Company had 90 calendar days, or until September 23, 2008, to regain compliance. That matter is now closed.

As previously disclosed on July 31, 2008, WorldHeart completed a $30.0 million private placement transaction and recapitalization that resulted in the issuance of 300,000,000 common shares. This private placement cured the Company's shareholders' equity deficiency or non-compliance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3), previously announced on March 31, 2008. In addition, announced on August 21, 2008, the Company initiated a phased consolidation plan which the Company expects will reduce its expenses and increase the likelihood that the Company will maintain compliance in the longer term. The Company remains within the grace period for its bid price deficiency (through October 27, 2008), but has filed a proxy statement seeking shareholder approval for a reverse stock split to increase its share price and cure its bid price deficiency set forth under Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4).
