NEW YORK -- December 11, 2012

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New
York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of PriceSmart Inc.
(“PriceSmart” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: PSMT) for potential breaches of
fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders’
approval for an Equity Incentive Award Plan.

Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on December 5, 2012, the Board of Directors recommends
that PriceSmart’s shareholders vote to approve the Company’s 2013 Equity
Incentive Plan, which would increase the number of shares of common stock
available for grant under prior plans by 600,000. The issuance of the
additional shares could have a substantial dilutive effect on the shares of
PriceSmart common stock.
