Power Solutions International Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Delisting Notice; Common Stock Expected to Be Quoted on the OTC Pink Market

WOOD DALE, Ill., April 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power Solutions International, Inc. ("the Company") (Nasdaq:PSIX), a leader in the design, engineer and manufacture of emissions-certified, alternative-fuel power systems, announced that on April 17, 2017, the Company received notification from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") that the Hearings Panel has determined to delist the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq, and will suspend trading in the shares effective at the open of business on April 19, 2017. The Nasdaq Hearings Panel’s determination was made in connection with the Company’s non-compliance with Securities and Exchange Act (“SEC”) filing requirements as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1).

Following the suspension of trading on Nasdaq, the Company expects its common stock will be quoted on the OTC Pink market electronic quotation service operated by OTC Markets Group Inc. until such time as the Company becomes current in its reporting obligations with the SEC and seeks to relist the common stock on a national exchange. The common stock will continue to trade under the symbol PSIX. For quotes or additional information on the OTC Pink market, please visit http://www.otcmarkets.com.

Ray Anderson, interim chief executive officer, commented, “While we are disappointed with the Nasdaq delisting, it does not in any way impact our strategic collaboration agreement with Weichai, our business activities, or our valued relationships with customers, suppliers and employees. We remain focused on driving the adoption of our engines and technologies across the globe as we strive to generate sustainable sales growth and profitability. At the same time, we continue to diligently work to restate our financials and become current with our reporting obligations with the SEC. Once that process is complete, we will seek to relist the Company’s common stock on a major exchange. We are appreciative of Weichai’s support as we work to become compliant and look forward to executing on the multiple growth and cost savings opportunities we believe we can achieve through our partnership.”

The Company currently anticipates completing the restatement and becoming current with all of its SEC filings by August of 2017; however, there can be no assurance that the process will be completed by that time.
