  Chanticleer (HOTR) – Seeking Former Employees and Current Shareholders

Business Wire

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- December 10, 2013

The Law Offices of Nicholas Koluncich III, LLC is investigating possible
breaches of fiduciary duty by certain officers and directors of Chanticleer
Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTR) (“Chanticleer” or “Hooters” or “Company”) and
requests that stockholders please contact us immediately. Although the outcome
of litigation is never assured, as a Chanticleer / HOTR shareholder, you may
be eligible for some form of financial recovery. According to its public
filings made with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission,
Chanticleer, in addition to other operations, has a majority ownership of
several “Hooters” restaurants in South Africa and one in Hungary. In
conjunction with its 2012 IPO, the Company filed an Amended Registration
Statement and Final Prospectus in 2012, representing that the company’s Fiscal
Year 2011 financial statements had been audited. Shortly after the offering
commenced, Chanticleer disclosed that the financial statements for 2011 and
the first quarter of 2012 could no longer be relied upon because the
statements for the South Africa operations had not, in fact, been audited.
Chanticleer subsequently restated financial results for FY 2011 and Q1 of
2012. These events precipitated multiple adverse Company events:

  *HOTR suffered an immediate decline in share price of approximately 50% to
    $1.66 per share;
  *A shareholder class action was filed in the Southern District of Florida
    alleging that the Company’s registration statement and prospectus was
    false and misleading. This court case is still pending and shareholders
    may still have their voices heard by contacting us;
  *The Company announced that its South African subsidiaries have not filed
    certain corporate income taxes for some years; and
  *The Company announced that it had been served a subpoena from the
    Securities and Exchange Commission seeking information regarding its South
    African Hooters entities’ accounting.
