VANCOUVER, Wash., September 12, 2002 - Consolidated Freightways Corporation said today that it has been advised by the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department that, based on its balance sheet reported in the Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2002, the company fails to comply with the net tangible assets and stockholders equity requirements for continued listing on The Nasdaq Stock Market. The listings department indicated that this issue, as well as the company's recent bankruptcy filing, would be considered at the company's delisting hearing on September 20, 2002. The hearing was initially scheduled in connection with the company's failure to timely file its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2002, which has since been filed. The company anticipates that after Nasdaq concludes its review, it will determine that the company has not adequately addressed these issues and the company's securities will be delisted. The company said it does not anticipate creditor claims to be fully satisfied under its Chapter 11 proceedings, and that the company's stockholders will likely receive no value for their common stock. On September 4, 2002, the company's trading symbol was amended to "CFWEQ" to denote both the company's filing delinquency and the bankruptcy filing. Consolidated Freightways, which is headquartered in Vancouver, Wash., filed for bankruptcy protection September 3, 2002 and plans to liquidate the business in an orderly manner. Its CF AirFreight, Canadian Freightways Ltd. and Grupo Consolidated Freightways, S.A. de RL subsidiaries continue to operate as usual.
