Intends to Request Hearing

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Swisher Hygiene Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SWSH) announced today that on November 12, 2015, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5100, the Staff believes the Company is a “public shell” and, as a result, the continued listing of the Company’s securities on Nasdaq is no longer warranted. The Company intends to timely request a hearing before the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to address the Staff’s determination, which request will automatically stay any delisting action by the Staff. We anticipate that trading in the Company’s securities will continue on Nasdaq pending the ultimate resolution of this matter with Nasdaq.

The Company’s Board of Directors will continue to determine when and whether to proceed with the Plan of Dissolution approved by the Company’s stockholders on October 15, 2015, which provided the Board of Directors with the discretion to determine, within twelve months of such approval, when and whether to proceed with the Plan of Dissolution.
