Motorcar Parts Of America Receives Notice From NASDAQ Due To Delayed Filing Of Form 10-Q

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (Nasdaq:MPAA) today announced it received a notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that the company is not in compliance with NASDAQ listing rules because its Form 10-Q for its fiscal 2013 first quarter ended June 30, 2012 was not timely filed. The notice, which the company expected, was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures as a result of the delayed filing. Timely filing of periodic reports is a requirement for continued listing under NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5250(c)(1).

The delay in filing is due to the company's inability to timely process the financial information for the fiscal year as a result of the company's acquisition of Fenwick Automotive Products Limited and related companies in May 2011. This consequently has delayed the filing of the company's fiscal 2013 first quarter Form 10-Q.

The company is focusing significant efforts on completing the processing of this information and expects to file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31 in the near future. The company also noted that it expects to file its fiscal 2013 first quarter report shortly thereafter.

The NASDAQ notice directs the company to submit a plan to regain compliance with the continued listing requirements by August 28, 2012. The company expects to address the notice by filing its Forms 10-K and 10-Q and submitting a required compliance plan.
