Level 8 Systems, Inc. Announces Amendment To Proposed Reverse Stock Split

Level 8 Systems, Inc. Announces Amendment To Proposed Reverse Stock Split

Level 8 Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: LVEL), today announced that its Board

of Directors has amended the range of its proposed reverse stock

split to reflect any whole number ratio between 1-for-4 and 1-for-12.

Last week the Board had approved a higher recommended range and after

discussion, felt that the current range of 1-for-4 and 1-for-12

better suited the needs of the Company and its stockholders. The

Company will also continue to seek stockholder approval for a

reduction in the authorized capital stock of the Company from 50

million to 25 million, consisting of 20 million authorized shares of

common stock and 5 million authorized shares of preferred stock at

the Annual Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for December 20, 2002.

Following stockholder approval, the Board of Directors will effect the

reverse stock split, at its discretion, by selecting one of the whole

number ratios between 1-for-4 and 1-for-12 and filing an amendment to

the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation with the State of

Delaware. The Board of Directors has set November 20, 2002 as the

record date for determination of the stockholders entitled to vote at

the Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
