Avid To Request A Hearing Regarding NASDAQ Staff Determination Letter

Avid Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:AVID) announced today that on August 29, 2013 it received a letter from the staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ Staff”) indicating that unless the Company requests a hearing before the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (“Panel”) by September 5, 2013, the Company's common stock would be subject to delisting based upon its non-compliance with NASDAQ's filing requirement, as set forth in Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (“Rule”). The Staff's determination letter was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures due to the delayed filing of the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 and Forms 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 (collectively, “Delinquent Reports”).

The Company has requested a hearing before the Panel and also requested a stay of the Staff's delisting determination. As a result of this request, the delisting of the Company's common stock is automatically stayed until at least September 20, 2013 and, assuming the Panel grants the Company's request for a stay, any final delisting action will be further stayed until at least the Panel's final determination following the hearing. At the hearing, the Company will present its plan to regain compliance with the Rule and request the continued listing of its common stock on NASDAQ pending such compliance. The Panel has the discretion to grant the Company an extension until March 14, 2014 to regain compliance with the Rule. There can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's requests.

As previously announced, the Delinquent Reports were not timely filed due to the Company's ongoing accounting evaluation and pending restatement of its financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009 and quarterly periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, June 30, 2012 and 2011, and September 30, 2012 and 2011. For more information regarding the accounting evaluation, please see the Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 filed by the Company on August 12, 2013, and the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on May 21, 2013.
