Twin Disc, Inc. Receives Nasdaq Notice Regarding Late Form 10-Q Filing

  Twin Disc, Inc. Receives Nasdaq Notice Regarding Late Form 10-Q Filing  Business Wire  RACINE, Wis. -- May 15, 2014  Twin Disc, Inc. (NASDAQ: TWIN), received a letter on May 14, 2014 from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying Twin Disc that it was not in compliance with Nasdaq Rule 5250(c)(1) related to the filing of periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The issuance of the letter is based upon Twin Disc not filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 28, 2014 on or before the due date of May 7, 2014.  On May 7, 2014, the Company filed a notification of late filing with the SEC pursuant to Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As disclosed in the filed Form 12b-25, the Company was unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 28, 2014 as a result of the Company discovering certain accounting issues involving an unknown number of employees at its Belgian subsidiary, Twin Disc International S.A. The Company’s Audit Committee has begun an investigation into these matters to determine whether any adjustments will be required with respect to the Company’s previously issued financial statements, and whether there are any internal control implications.  The issuance of the letter has no immediate effect on the listing of Twin Disc's common stock. The Company intends to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 28, 2014 as soon as possible after the completion of an Audit Committee investigation, but is unable to predict a specific date at this time due to the very early stage of the investigation.
