DALLAS, Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cubic Energy, Inc. (NYSE:QBC) ("Cubic" or the "Company") announced today that it has received a letter from the NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange") indicating that, based upon the Company's continued non-compliance with the stockholders' equity requirements for continued listing as set forth in Sections 1003(a)(i-iii) of the Exchange's Company Guide and the Exchange's concerns regarding the Company's financial viability with respect to maturing obligations, as set forth in Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Exchange's Company Guide, the Company's common stock is subject to delisting from the Exchange. The Company plans to file an appeal of the determination by requesting an oral hearing before the Listing Qualifications Panel of the Exchange's Committee on Securities, which request will stay the delisting determination until at least such time as the Panel renders a determination following the hearing. The Company is taking steps to address the deficiencies raised by the Exchange; however, there can be no assurance that the Company's appeal will ultimately be successful.

The Company continues to work with Donohoe Advisory Associates LLC, along with its securities counsel, to advise and assist it in the preparation and presentation of information to and arguments before the Exchange.

Cubic Energy, Inc. is an independent company engaged in the development and production of, and exploration for, crude oil and natural gas. The Company's oil and gas assets and activity are concentrated primarily in the Haynesville Shale Play located in Northwest Louisiana.
