Asta Funding, Inc. Receives Letter From NASDAQ Relating To Its Late Form 10-K

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On January 2, 2013, Asta Funding, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASFI) (the "Company"), a consumer receivable asset management and liquidation company, received a staff determination letter from the NASDAQ Global Select Market ("NASDAQ") stating that the Company was not in compliance with its rules for continued listing, Rule 4310(c)(14), because it has not timely filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012. The NASDAQ letter indicated that the Company has 60 days to submit a plan to regain compliance. If such a plan is timely submitted by the Company, the NASDAQ Staff can grant the Company up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-K (or June 29, 2013) to regain compliance.

As disclosed in the Company's Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on December 14, 2012, the Company experienced delays in the collection, compilation and analysis of certain information that may be included in the Annual Report. The Company intends to file the Annual Report with the Securities and Exchange Commission as soon as possible. If, however, for any reason it is unable to file the Form 10-K on or before March 3, 2013, the Company would then submit a plan to regain compliance to the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Department no later than March 3, 2013. No assurance can be given that NASDAQ will grant an exception for the full 180-day period contemplated in the NASDAQ Marketplace Rules, if at all. Under NASDAQ's rules, the Company's common stock will continue to be listed on NASDAQ until March 3, 2013, and for any exception period that may be granted to the Company by the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Department. However, until the Company regains compliance, quotation information for the Company's common stock will include an indicator of the Company's non-compliance and the Company will be included in a list of non-compliant companies on the NASDAQ website.
