WPCS Receives NASDAQ Notice of Non-Compliance; Intends to Request Hearing

WPCS Receives NASDAQ Notice of Non-Compliance; Intends to Request Hearing 
EXTON, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 --   WPCS International
Incorporated (NASDAQ: WPCS) ("WPCS" or the "Company"), which
specializes in contracting services for communications infrastructure
and the development of a Bitcoin trading platform, 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 requirement to
solicit proxies and hold an annual meeting of stockholders, as set
forth in NASDAQ Listing Rules 5620(a) and 5620(b) (the "Annual
Meeting 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
the hearing or the expiration of any extension granted by the Panel.
The Company is diligently pursuing its plan to regain compliance with
the Annual Meeting Requirement and, in that regard, had already
initiated the process prior to receiving the notice from NASDAQ, and
intends to file the proxy statement for the annual meeting within the
next week. 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
primary reason for the delay in holding our annual meeting was due to
the Company commencing first with a special shareholder meeting to
approve other Company actions. The scheduling of this special meeting
was postponed as a result of several rounds of comments from the SEC,
which we have now resolved. The Company believes that amending the
special meeting to include the annual meeting requirements would have
further delayed the scheduling of both the special meeting and the
annual meeting. Management believes that we will regain compliance
with the Annual Meeting Requirement based on its current plan to hold
its annual meeting as soon as possible."
