IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DynTek, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: DYNK), a leading provider of professional technology services, today announced that it intends to file a Form 15 on December 18, 2007 to deregister its common stock and suspend its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. DynTek is eligible to deregister because it has fewer than 300 holders of record of its common stock. Upon the filing of the Form 15, DynTek's obligation to file certain reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will immediately be suspended. However, DynTek presently intends to continue to make available, through its website or otherwise, its periodic financial information beginning with the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2007.

However, DynTek presently intends to continue to make available, through its website or otherwise, its periodic financial information beginning with the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2007.
As a result of the deregistration, it is expected that DynTek's common stock will no longer be eligible for trading on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board. DynTek expects, but cannot guarantee, that its common stock will be quoted on the Pink Sheets after it is delisted from the OTCBB. The Pink Sheets is a provider of pricing and financial information for the over-the-counter securities markets. It is a centralized quotation service that collects and publishes market maker quotes in real time primarily through its website, http://www.pinksheets.com.
The decision by the DynTek Board of Directors to deregister and delist the common stock was based on the consideration of numerous factors, including:
(1) the reduction of disproportionately large costs associated with the preparation and filing of DynTek's periodic reports and other filings with the SEC; (2) the elimination of substantial increases in accounting, audit, legal and other costs associated with being a public company in light of the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 and new SEC disclosure rules; (3) the substantial demands placed on management in order to comply with SEC reporting obligations which prevent management from dedicating valuable time to the day-to-day operation and growth of DynTek; (4) the nature and extent of current trading in DynTek's common stock on the OTCBB, which is historically limited; and (5) the lack of analysts' coverage and minimal liquidity for DynTek's common stock.
In response to the Board's decision, Casper Zublin, Jr., DynTek's Chief Executive Officer, indicated that "the deregistration and delisting of DynTek's common stock was approved by the Board only after extensive consultation with our management team and careful deliberation regarding the advantages and disadvantages of continuing registration with the SEC and listing on the OTCBB. However, in the Board's estimation, the costs and administrative burdens associated with being a public company have simply become too massive for a company of our size and stage of growth. The rising costs of compliance, as well as the substantial demands on management time compelled by current disclosure requirements, simply outweigh the benefits DynTek receives from maintaining its registration with the SEC and trading on the Bulletin Board. I believe that deregistering will result in significant reductions in our cost structure and will enable our management team to focus significantly more time and resources on operating the Company and enhancing shareholder value."
