Bell Micro Gets Extension

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Bell Microproducts, Inc.
(NASDAQ:BELM), one of the world's largest storage-centric value-added
distributors, announced today the Company has received a written
notification that the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel had granted the
Company's request for continued listing on The NASDAQ Stock Market, and has
given the Company an extension until May 22, 2007 to become current in its
SEC filings. While the Company is working diligently to complete the review
of its stock option accounting practices and complete re-statements of prior
period financials, it may not be possible to complete these SEC filings
prior to May 22, 2007. Accordingly, if necessary, the Company will petition
the NASDAQ Listing and Hearings Review Council for an additional extension.

The Company has also received waivers until May 31, 2007 under the Company's
credit agreements with Wachovia Capital Finance Corporation, Wachovia Bank,
National Association and the Teachers' Retirement Systems of Alabama, with
respect to the delivery of certain quarterly information and documentation
to its lenders. These waivers are structured to coincide with the timing of
the NASDAQ extension.
