SPACEHAB, Incorporated, a leading provider of commercial space services, announced today that Nasdaq has approved its application to transfer the listing of the Company’s common stock from the Nasdaq National Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market.

The transfer to the Capital Market was effective at the opening of business on March 22, 2006. SPACEHAB will continue to trade under the symbol “SPAB”. The Company applied to transfer from the National Market to the Capital Market after it received a letter from Nasdaq notifying the Company that it was not in compliance with the National Market listing requirement for stockholders equity.

As announced on December 2, 2005, SPACEHAB does not currently satisfy the $1.00 bid price requirement for continued listing on Nasdaq. Pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, the Company was granted a 180 calendar day grace period, through May 30, 2006, to evidence a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for 10 consecutive trading days. SPACEHAB has not yet evidenced compliance with that requirement. However, in the event the Company does not remedy the bid price deficiency by May 30, 2006 but evidences compliance with all other initial listing requirements for the Nasdaq Capital Market upon the expiration of the initial 180 day period, the Company will be eligible for an additional 180 day period, through November 27, 2006, to achieve compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. SPACEHAB currently complies with all other initial listing requirements for the Nasdaq Capital Markets.
