Energy Services Of America Corporation Announces Extension Of Warrant Exchange Offer And Extension Of Expiration Date Of Warrants

HUNTINGTON, W.Va., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy Services of America Corporation (the "Company") (NYSE-AMEX Equities: ESA) today announced the extension of the offering period for its exchange offer for all of its outstanding warrants.  The offering period as extended will expire at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on September 28, 2011.  The Company also announced that it was extending the expiration date of the warrants until 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 12, 2011.  The tender offer was previously set to expire at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 20, 2011 and the warrants previously expired at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 29, 2011.

On July 13, 2011, the staff of NYSE—AMEX notified the Company that the staff has interpreted its rules to conclude that the issuance of shares of common stock in exchange for warrants held by officers and directors of the Company would be deemed equity compensation.  Based on the staff's interpretation, the issuance of shares of common stock to officers, directors and employees of the Company in connection with the exchange offer would require the consent of the Company's stockholders pursuant to applicable NYSE—AMEX listing rules.  The Company extended the offering period and the expiration date of the warrants so that the Company could consider whether to request the consent of the stockholders and to allow the stockholders sufficient time to consider and vote on the issue if the Company does decide to present the issue to stockholders for consideration.

As of August 3, 2011, approximately 19,530,930 warrants had been tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the exchange offer, which represented 96.3% of the outstanding warrants.
