Gasco Energy Receives Notice From NYSE MKT Of Determination To Initiate Delisting Proceedings

DENVER, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gasco Energy, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSX) ("Gasco" or the "Company") today announced that on March 27, 2013, the Company received notice from the NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange") indicating that after a careful review of the plan submitted by the Company to regain compliance with the Exchange's continued listing standards and publicly available information, the Exchange has determined that the Company has not made a reasonable demonstration of its ability to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide by June 30, 2013 and that the Exchange intends to initiate delisting proceedings against the Company by filing a delisting application with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 1009(d) of the NYSE MKT LLC Company Guide (the "Company Guide").  In the notice, the Exchange also notified the Company that in accordance with Sections 1203 and 1009(d) of the Company Guide, the Company has a limited right to appeal the Exchange's determination by requesting an oral hearing or a hearing based on a written submission before the Exchange's Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel"). 

The Company intends to appeal the Exchange's determination by requesting an oral hearing before the Panel.  However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in its appeal and that the Company's request for continued listing will be granted.

As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed December 12, 2012, the Company received notice from the Exchange on December 6, 2012 indicating that the Company did not satisfy the continued listing standards of the Exchange set forth in Section 1003(f)(v) of the Company Guide because the Company's common stock had traded at a low price per share for a substantial period of time.  In the notice, the Exchange predicated the Company's continued listing on the Exchange on the Company effecting a reverse stock split of its common stock by June 6, 2013.  Further, as previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed January 17, 2013, the Company received notice from the Exchange on January 11, 2013 indicating that the Company did not satisfy the continued listing standards of the Exchange set forth in Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide, which applies if a listed company has sustained losses which are so substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become so impaired that it appears questionable, in the opinion of the Exchange, as to whether such company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature.  In order to maintain its listing, the Company was required to submit a plan of compliance (a "Plan") addressing how it intended to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide by June 30, 2013.  The Company provided the Exchange with a Plan on February 11, 2013.
