WPCS to Request Hearing in Response to NASDAQ Staff Determination Letter EXTON, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 -- WPCS International Incorporated (NASDAQ: WPCS) ("WPCS" or the "Company"), which specializes in design-build engineering services for communications infrastructure, today announced that it received a letter from the Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") indicating that unless the Company timely requests a hearing before the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel"), the Company's common stock would be subject to delisting from The NASDAQ Capital Market due to the Company's non-compliance with the applicable $2.5 million stockholders' equity requirement, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (the "Stockholders' Equity Requirement"). Accordingly, the Company plans to timely request a hearing before the Panel, which will stay any suspension or delisting action until at least the issuance of a formal determination by the Panel following a hearing. At the hearing, the Company will request the continued listing of its securities on NASDAQ pending the completion of its plan to regain and sustain compliance with the Stockholders' Equity Requirement. The Panel has the discretion to grant the Company an extension of up to 180 days from the date of the Staff's determination letter, or through April 7, 2014. The Company is diligently pursuing its plan to regain compliance with the Stockholders' Equity Requirement; however, there can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing pending the completion of its plan. Sebastian Giordano, Interim Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The Company believes that it presented a multi-phased plan to the NASDAQ Staff for regaining compliance with the Stockholders' Equity Requirement, and looks forward to the hearing with the independent NASDAQ Panel to further discuss the plan components and the progress the Company expects to make in executing the Plan. In the meantime, the Company continues to evaluate a number of opportunities for improvement."
