Central European Distribution Corporation (NASDAQ: CEDC) announced that on August 10, 2012, CEDC received a notification letter from a representative of the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ OMX Group stating that due to CEDC's inability to timely file its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2012 (the "2nd Quarter Form 10-Q"), CEDC was not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). This notification was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures, in connection with CEDC's announcement on August 10, 2012, on Form 12b-25 that CEDC would not be able to timely file its 2nd Quarter Form 10-Q.
The NASDAQ notification letter noted that CEDC has until October 9, 2012 to submit a plan to regain compliance with the applicable listing rule to NASDAQ.

If necessary, CEDC will submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ's filing requirements within the 60 day deadline.
