MIDDLEFIELD, Conn., Feb. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zygo Corporation (Nasdaq: ZIGO) announced today that on February 21, 2014, the Company received a notice (the "Notice") from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ"), indicating that the Company was no longer in compliance with the NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) due to the Company's failure to timely file its Quarterly Report for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2013 (the "Quarterly Report") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Notice advises the Company that it must submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ's listing rules to NASDAQ within 60 days.

On February 11, 2014, Zygo Corporation (the "Company") filed a notification of late filing with the SEC pursuant to Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As disclosed in the filed Form 12b-25 and the Company's prior SEC filings, the Company had been undergoing a review of its deferred tax asset and liability accounts, in connection with the Company's efforts to demonstrate remediation of the material weakness in accounting for income taxes reported in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2013. However, the review of these deferred tax assets and liability accounts took longer than expected, and the Company failed to file its Quarterly Report on or before February 18, 2014 (the permitted filing date, including the extension provided pursuant to Rule 12b-25).

The Company filed its Form 10-Q with the SEC on February 25, 2014. The Company has notified NASDAQ that the Quarterly Report has been filed, and that the Company is in full compliance with the NASDAQ listing requirements.

The Company's Form 10-Q is available on Securities and Exchange Commission web site at www.sec.gov.
