Swisher Hygiene Inc. Receives NASDAQ Determination Letter

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swisher Hygiene Inc. ("Swisher Hygiene") (Nasdaq:SWSH) (TSX:SWI), a leading provider of essential hygiene and sanitation products and services, announced today that, on September 20, 2012, it notified The NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ") that its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (the "Form 10-K") and Form 10-Qs for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012 (together, the "Form 10-Qs") will not be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by September 26, 2012, which is the extended deadline for filing previously granted to Swisher Hygiene by NASDAQ. 

As a result of this notification, on September 21, 2012, Swisher Hygiene received a letter from NASDAQ advising that it remains non-compliant with the requirements for continued listing under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) due to Swisher Hygiene's failure to timely file the Form 10-K and the Form 10-Qs. The letter further indicates that Swisher Hygiene's common stock is subject to delisting from NASDAQ unless it requests a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel") within seven calendar days of receipt of the letter.  

Swisher Hygiene intends to timely request a hearing before the Panel. Swisher Hygiene's request for a hearing will automatically stay any delisting action for a period of 15 days from the date of the request. In addition, in connection with its request for a hearing, Swisher Hygiene will request that the Panel continue the stay of delisting until the conclusion of the hearing process. Swisher Hygiene expects that a hearing will be set for 30 to 45 days from the date of the request and that the Panel will take approximately one to six weeks from the hearing date to render a decision. If Swisher Hygiene's plan to regain compliance is approved, the Panel may provide Swisher Hygiene up to 360 days from the original due date for the Form 10-K, which was March 30, 2012. However, Swisher Hygiene cannot provide assurance that the Panel will grant the company a stay of Staff's delisting determination until the conclusion of the hearing process or that it will grant Swisher Hygiene an exception for additional time to regain compliance with NASDAQ's filing requirement.
