ERBA Diagnostics, Inc. Announces Delay in Filing Annual Report on Form 10-K

MIAMI LAKES, Fla., April 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ERBA Diagnostics, Inc. (NYSE MKT:ERB), a fully integrated in vitro diagnostics company, announced today that it is delaying the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

As previously disclosed in the Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25, which ERBA Diagnostics filed with the SEC on April 1, 2015, ERBA Diagnostics delayed filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K because of unforeseen delays in connection with completing and filing its consolidated financial statements and the accompanying footnotes. Until these matters can be resolved, ERBA Diagnostics will not be in a position to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC.

Pursuant to Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, ERBA Diagnostics received an extension until April 15, 2015 to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, which extension has now expired. ERBA Diagnostics is working diligently to complete and file its Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC, which ERBA Diagnostics expects to do on or about April 30, 2015.
