CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swisher Hygiene Inc. ("Swisher") (Nasdaq:SWSH) (TSX:SWI), a leading provider of essential hygiene and sanitizing solutions, announced today that its Board of Directors has approved and Swisher has requested to voluntarily delist its shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"). The delisting is expected to occur at the close of trading on April 30, 2014.
The decision to delist was primarily based on the minimal trading volume of Swisher's shares on the TSX over a sustained period no longer justifying the expense and administrative efforts associated with maintaining a dual listing.
Swisher's common shares will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker SWSH, where it has been listed since February 2011, and its Canadian shareholders will be able to continue to trade their Swisher common shares on that market.About Swisher Hygiene Inc.
