TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Farmer Bros. Co. (Nasdaq:FARM) (the "Company"), a manufacturer, wholesaler and distributor of coffee, tea and culinary products, today announced today that it received on October 3, 2013, a notification letter ("NASDAQ Letter") from the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") advising the Company that, due to its failure to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 on a timely basis, the Company is not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). The NASDAQ Letter was anticipated given the Company's inability to complete its previously announced restatement of certain prior period financial statements necessary in order to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 by the September 30, 2013 deadline under Rule 12b-25 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The NASDAQ Letter was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures and is expected to have no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock on the NASDAQ Global Market. The NASDAQ Letter indicated that the Company has 60 calendar days from the date of the letter (or until December 2, 2013) to submit a plan to NASDAQ explaining how the Company expects to regain compliance. If NASDAQ approves the Company's plan, it can grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-K (or until March 31, 2014) to regain compliance.
