Seoul, South Korea - Jun 3, 2014 (PRN):
GRAVITY Co., Ltd (Nasdaq:GRVY) ("Gravity" or "Company"), an online game developer and publisher based in South Korea, announced today that the Company received a letter, dated May 28, 2014, from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (the "Nasdaq Letter"), indicating that the Company failed to comply with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5450(a)(1), as the bid price of the Company's American Depositary Shares ("ADS") had closed for 30 consecutive business days below US$1.00 per ADS.
In accordance with Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until November 24, 2014, to regain compliance.

Nasdaq Letter has no effect at this time on the listing of the Company's ADS on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The Company's ADS will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol "GRVY."
Gravity will monitor the bid price for its ADS between now and November 24, 2014, and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the Nasdaq minimum bid price requirement.
This announcement is being made in compliance with Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a notification of deficiency.
