IDT Corporation Regains Compliance with NYSE Minimum Share Price Requirement

IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT; IDT.C) said today that it has received
notice from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that it has regained
compliance with the NYSE’s minimum share price listing requirement. The
Company continues to work to regain compliance with the NYSE’s average
global market capitalization listing requirement.

On April 8, 2009, the NYSE notified IDT that the stock price for each of
IDT’s listed equity securities (IDT and IDT.C) was above the NYSE’s
minimum requirement of a $1.00 average share price over the preceding 30
trading days and a $1.00 share price on the close of the last trading
day of the six-month cure period (April 8, 2009), thus restoring IDT’s
compliance with the minimum share price requirement for continued
listing on the NYSE. In this regard, IDT implemented a one-for-three
reverse stock split for each class of its outstanding shares effective
with the start of trading on February 25, 2009. As of April 8, 2009, the
30 trading day average share closing price of IDT common stock and IDT
Class B common stock was $1.07 and $1.17, respectively. On April 8,
2009, IDT common stock and Class B common stock closed at $1.19 and
$1.28, respectively.

In December 2008, IDT announced that the NYSE had accepted the Company’s
business plan submission to regain compliance with the NYSE’s global
market capitalization listing requirement. Although IDT has complied
with the minimum share price requirement, IDT’s continued listing is
subject to quarterly reviews of IDT’s progress toward satisfying the
interim goals and milestones outlined in its NYSE submission. Failure of
IDT to meet these interim objectives could result in IDT being subject
to NYSE trading suspension. IDT has until March of 2010 to meet the
NYSE’s $100 million average global market capitalization listing
