DALLAS, April 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cubic Energy, Inc. (NYSE MKT:QBC) ("Cubic" or the "Company") announced today that on April 10, 2013, the Company received written notification regarding the results of its appeal hearing held on April 3, 2013 before the Listing Qualifications Panel of the Committee on Securities (the "Panel") of the NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange"). During the hearing, the Company presented its plan for regaining compliance with all applicable requirements for continued listing and requested an extension through May 31, 2013 to evidence such compliance.

As set forth in their letter, the Panel has deferred any delisting action pending its review of the Company's progress on the compliance plan presented at the hearing. To that end, the Panel has requested that the Exchange Staff provide the Panel with a report on the Company's progress through May 31, 2013.

Should the report conclude that the Company is no longer financially impaired and that the Company has remedied the stockholders' equity deficiency, the Panel has advised that the delisting proceeding will be dismissed. Should the Exchange Staff's report conclude that the Company has not regained compliance with the requirements for continued listing, the Company will have the opportunity to submit a response to the report for the Panel's review prior to the Panel making its final determination in this matter. While the Company is working diligently to evidence compliance with all requirements for continued listing on the Exchange, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to timely do so.

Cubic Energy, Inc. is an independent company engaged in the development and production of, and exploration for, crude oil and natural gas.
