Cray Inc. Receives Notice of Potential Delisting from Nasdaq; Company Will Appeal and Common Stock Listing Continues Pending Appeal Outcome

SEATTLE, May 09, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Cray Inc. (Nasdaq:CRAY) today announced that on May 6, 2005, it received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market stating that due to Cray's failure to include the auditor's opinion on management's assessment of internal control over financial reporting required pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 in its Form 10-K/A filed on May 3, 2005, the Company was not in compliance with the requirements of Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14).

As a result the character "E" will be appended to the trading symbol and accordingly the trading symbol for the Company's common stock will be changed from CRAY to CRAYE at the opening of business on May 10, 2005.

The Company will request an appeal hearing with the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel by May 13, 2005, for continued listing on the Nasdaq National Market. Under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, Cray common stock will remain listed on the Nasdaq National market pending the outcome of the hearing. If the Company were not to file its appeal by May 13, 2005, then the Company's common stock would be delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market at the opening of business on May 17, 2005.
