MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Australia Acquisition Corp. ("AAC" or the "Company"; NASDAQ: AAC; AACOW; AACOU) today announced that on October 12, 2012 the Company received a letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") advising that the NASDAQ Hearings Panel (the "Panel") affirmed the determination of NASDAQ's Listing Qualifications Staff to delist the Company's ordinary shares, units and warrants (the "Listed Securities") from the NASDAQ Capital Market due to the Company's failure to meet the 300 public holder requirement set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(3).   

The Listed Securities will be suspended from trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market effective at the open of business on Tuesday, October 16, 2012. Effective upon such delisting from NASDAQ, the Company anticipates that its securities will be immediately eligible for quotation on the OTC Bulletin Board.

The Company does not intend to request that the NASDAQ Listing and Hearing Review Council (the "Council") review the Panel's decision.  NASDAQ indicated that the Council may, on its own motion, determine to review the Panel decision within 45 calendar days after issuance of the October 12, 2012 decision. If the Council determines to review this decision, it may affirm, modify, reverse, dismiss or remand the decision to the Panel.
