CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) (the "Company") announced that today it received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") stating that the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel") had granted the Company's request to extend the stay of suspension of trading in its common stock pending a final determination regarding the Company's listing status following a hearing before the Panel. The hearing has been scheduled for November 7, 2013. At the hearing, the Company will request additional time to satisfy the NASDAQ listing requirement that the Company be current in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company will provide an update regarding its continued listing status once a decision on this matter has been issued following the hearing.

The Company continues to be committed to regaining compliance with all SEC filing requirements and all NASDAQ listing requirements as promptly as possible.
