Apr 22, 2011, 15:30 ET from Private Media Group

BARCELONA, Spain, April 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Private Media Group, Inc.(NASDAQ: PRVT) a worldwide leader in premium-quality adult entertainment products, today announced that on April 18, 2011, the Company received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market stating that because the Company failed to file its Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2010, on or before its due date, April 15, 2011, it is not in compliance with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5250(c)(1) (the "Rule"), which requires that a listed company timely file periodic financial reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as a condition to the continued listing of its securities. The NASDAQ letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's Common Stock.

Under the NASDAQ Listing Rules the Company has until June 17, 2011, to submit a Plan to regain compliance with the Rule. If the Plan is accepted by NASDAQ, it has the authority to grant an exception to the Rule for up to 180 calendar days from the Filing's due date, October 12, 2011, to regain compliance with the Rule by filing any past due periodic SEC filings. In determining whether to accept the Plan, NASDAQ will consider such things as the likelihood that the Form 10-K, along with any subsequent periodic filing that becomes due, can be made within the 180-day period, the Company's past compliance history, the reasons for the late filing of the Form 10-K, other corporate events that may occur within our review period, the Company's overall financial condition and its public disclosures.

The Company is finalizing the Form 10-K and intends to complete its filing within the next 10 days, and in any event prior to the expiration of the 60-day period in which to submit a Plan.
