ModusLink Global Solutions™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK) today announced that on December 18, 2012, as expected, it received a notification letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”). The letter stated that ModusLink’s delay in filing the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for its first quarter of fiscal 2013 ended October 31, 2012, which delay the Company disclosed on December 10, 2012, serves as an additional basis for the potential delisting of its shares under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). The Company is working to complete its previously announced process to restate financial results for certain prior periods and become current in its periodic report filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As disclosed on December 13, 2012, the Company received a separate letter from NASDAQ advising that because the Company remains noncompliant with the filing requirements for continued listing under NASDAQ listing rules, the Company’s common stock is subject to suspension. The Company has the right to appeal this determination and, as planned, a hearing before NASDAQ’s Hearings Panel has been requested by the Company.

Forward Looking Information
Statements in this press release that are not historical facts may be deemed to be “forward-looking statements,” including those statements regarding: the Company’s progress toward completing the restatement process; the Company’s anticipated time frame for filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K and restated financial statements; the expected effects of the restatement; the Company’s ability to satisfy the NASDAQ requirements for continued listing. Actual and anticipated future results may vary materially due to certain risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation: unanticipated accounting issues or audit issues regarding the financial data for the periods to be restated or adjusted; the inability of the Company or its independent registered public accounting firm to confirm relevant information or data; unanticipated issues that prevent or delay the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm from concluding the audit or that require additional efforts, procedures or review; the Company’s inability to design or improve internal controls to address identified issues; there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in its appeal, receive a further extension from NASDAQ and remain listed on NASDAQ; there can be no assurance the Company will complete its restatement and become current in its regulatory filings by any future extension date approved by NASDAQ; the impact upon operations of legal compliance matters or internal controls review, improvement and remediation, including the detection of wrongdoing, improper activities or circumvention of internal controls; difficulties in controlling expenses, including costs of legal compliance matters or internal controls review, improvement and remediation; global economic conditions, especially in the technology sector, which are uncertain and subject to volatility; demand for our clients’ products, which may decline or may not achieve the levels anticipated by our clients; strain on managerial and operational resources as they try to oversee the expanded operations; failure to realize the expected benefits of restructuring and cost cutting actions; failure to expand operations in accordance with its business strategy; difficulty achieving and sustaining operating profitability if the Company’s cash balances are not sufficient to allow the Company to meet all of its business and investment goals; difficulties integrating technologies, operations and personnel in accordance with its business strategy; the Company derives a significant portion of its revenue from a small number of clients, and therefore the loss of any of those clients could significantly damage the Company’s financial condition and results of operations; the Company frequently sells to its supply chain management clients on a purchase order basis rather than pursuant to contracts with minimum purchase requirements, and therefore its sales and the amount of projected revenue that is actually realized are subject to demand variability; the Company’s pipeline of sales opportunities represents potential sales transactions and estimated annual revenue therefrom and there can be no assurance that such sales efforts will be successful or that the potential revenue will be realized; risks inherent with conducting international operations; increased competition and technological changes in the markets in which the Company competes; and the potential outcome and impact of the Company’s ongoing review of strategic alternatives. Further, there can be no assurance that the Company’s review of strategic alternatives will lead to any transaction, result in increased value to its stockholders or the realization of long-term value by stockholders.
