Remains in Business During Chapter 11 Process

MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 22 -- Egghead.com(R), Inc. (Nasdaq: EGGSQ) today announced that it has notified Nasdaq that the Company has withdrawn its request for a hearing to appeal the Nasdaq staff determination to delist the Company`s common stock. The Company also announced that it would not pursue the reverse split action approved by its Board of Directors in June. Following its delisting as a Nasdaq National Market security, the Company does not expect its common stock to be traded on the OTC bulletin board.

"With our sale of assets to Fry`s Electronics pending Bankruptcy Court approval, the Egghead.com site remains active; however, at the conclusion of this process, the company will no longer exist as a public entity," said Jeff Sheahan, president and CEO of Egghead.com. "As a result, there is no reason to appeal the delisting."
