Ignite Restaurant Group Receives NASDAQ Notice Regarding Late Form 10-Q Filing

Ignite Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: IRG) today announced that, as previously disclosed, the Company is completing an accounting review and restatement of its previously issued financial statements which will delay the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 18, 2012 (the “Form 10-Q”). The Company filed a Form 12b-25 Notification of Late Filing on August 3, 2012 confirming that it has delayed the filing of the Form 10-Q with the SEC. Accordingly, on August 3, 2012, in accordance with standard procedures related to the delayed filing of the Form 10-Q with the SEC, the Company received a letter from The NASDAQ OMX Group (“NASDAQ”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the filing requirements for continued listing under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c). The NASDAQ notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on The NASDAQ Global Select Market.

The NASDAQ letter notes that the Company is required to submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s filing requirements for continued listing within 60 calendar days of the date of the NASDAQ notification letter. Upon acceptance of the Company’s compliance plan, NASDAQ is permitted to grant an extension of up to 180 days from the Form 10-Q’s filing date for the Company to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s filing requirements for continued listing.

The Company continues to work diligently to complete the accounting review and if necessary will submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s filing requirements within the 60 day deadline. The Company expects to file the Form 10-Q upon completion of its accounting review and the restatement of its previously issued financial statements. However, the Company cannot currently estimate the exact filing date of the Form 10-Q.
