SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - September 18, 2009) - Leadis Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: LDIS) today announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has determined, after consideration of potential strategic alternatives, that it is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to liquidate the Company's assets and to dissolve the Company. In connection with this determination, the Company's Board has unanimously approved a Plan of Dissolution of the Company (the "Plan of Dissolution") subject to stockholder approval. The Company intends to hold a special meeting of the stockholders to seek approval of the Plan of Dissolution and intends to file a proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission expeditiously.
The Plan of Dissolution contemplates an orderly wind down of the Company's business and operations. If the Company's stockholders approve the Plan of Dissolution, the Company intends to file a certificate of dissolution, satisfy or resolve its remaining liabilities and obligations, including contingent liabilities and costs associated with the liquidation and dissolution, make reasonable provisions for unknown claims and liabilities, and make distributions to its stockholders of cash available for distribution, subject to applicable legal requirements. Following stockholder approval of the Plan of Dissolution and the filing of the certificate of dissolution, the Company plans to delist its common stock from the NASDAQ Global Market.
The Company has analyzed its liquidation value and currently estimates that the aggregate amount of liquidating distributions to stockholders will range from $0.93 to $1.20 per share. The total amount of these distributions, however, may vary substantially from this estimate based on a number of factors, including the resolution of outstanding known and contingent liabilities, the possible assertion of claims that are currently unknown to the Company and costs incurred to wind down the Company's business. As a result, stockholders may receive substantially less than the current estimates.
The Company also today announced that it received a deficiency notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market on September 15, 2009. The notice, in accordance with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(5) "Minimum Bid Price Requirement," states that the Company's common stock has closed below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days.

The Company's common stock must meet or exceed the $1.00 share price for 10 consecutive business days before March 15, 2010 or it could be subject to delisting from the NASDAQ Global Market. This notification has no effect on the listing of the Company's common stock at this time.
