Cubic Energy, Inc. Receives Notice From NYSE MKT LLC of Intent to File a
Delisting Application and Announces Intent to Appeal Such Determination
Through a Live Hearing

DALLAS, Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cubic Energy, Inc. (NYSE:QBC)
("Cubic" or the "Company") announced today that it has received a letter from
the NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange") indicating that, based upon the Company's
continued non-compliance with the stockholders' equity requirements for
continued listing as set forth in Sections 1003(a)(i-iii) of the Exchange's
Company Guide and the Exchange's concerns regarding the Company's financial
viability with respect to maturing obligations, as set forth in Section
1003(a)(iv) of the Exchange's Company Guide, the Company's common stock is
subject to delisting from the Exchange. The Company plans to file an appeal of
the determination by requesting an oral hearing before the Listing
Qualifications Panel of the Exchange's Committee on Securities, which request
will stay the delisting determination until at least such time as the Panel
renders a determination following the hearing. The Company is taking steps to
address the deficiencies raised by the Exchange; however, there can be no
assurance that the Company's appeal will ultimately be successful.

The Company continues to work with Donohoe Advisory Associates LLC, along with
its securities counsel, to advise and assist it in the preparation and
presentation of information to and arguments before the Exchange.

Cubic Energy, Inc. is an independent company engaged in the development and
production of, and exploration for, crude oil and natural gas. The Company's
