Prime Acquisition Corp. Announces Receipt Of Nasdaq Notification Letter

Prime Acquisition Corp. (“Prime” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: Common Stock: “PACQ”, Units: “PACQU”, Warrants: “PACQW”), a special purpose acquisition company, today announced that, on March 4, 2013, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that Nasdaq’s staff (the “Staff”) had determined that Prime was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(3) (the “Rule”), which requires that the Company maintain a minimum of 300 public holders for the continued listing of its securities on Nasdaq.

The Staff acknowledged Prime’s February 20, 2013, submission to Nasdaq regarding its preliminary plan of compliance with respect to the Rule and the Company’s February 25, 2013, announcement of its plans to acquire a proposed target business and to seek shareholder approval to amend its memorandum and articles of association (the “Articles”) to continue the Company’s existence for an additional six months (the “Extension”) past the current March 30, 2013, termination date.

Based on the Staff’s review of this information and pursuant to Listing Rule 5810(c)(2), Nasdaq has granted Prime an initial extension of time, until April 12, 2013, to complete the issuer tender offer that the Company has commenced in connection with the approval of the Extension (the “Extension Tender Offer”), and to revisit the Company’s compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(3) following the completion of the Extension Tender Offer. Following the completion of the Extension Tender Offer, the Company will conduct a share range analysis to evaluate its compliance with the Rule and will communicate its findings to Nasdaq no later than April 12, 2013. If the Company believes it does not comply with the Rule, it will submit an updated plan of compliance to Nasdaq setting forth any additional steps it will take to regain compliance with the Rule.
