Zanett, Inc. Expects to Receive Delisting Notice; Prepares to File Appeal; No Delisting Action To Be Taken by Nasdaq Until Final Decision by Appeal Panel; 60 More Days Expected Before Final Appeal Decision Issued

NEW YORK, March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Zanett, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZANE) today announced that by March 15, 2010 it expects to receive a delisting determination letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market Listing Qualifications Department, due to Zanett's failure to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market's minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). Zanett expects to request a hearing to appeal the Nasdaq Staff's determination within seven days of receipt of the letter. If such a request is made, no delisting action will be taken until the hearing process concludes and the Hearing Panel has issued a written decision.

Failure to request a hearing within seven calendar days will result in the suspension and delisting of Zanett's securities under the terms of the delisting determination letter. There can be no assurance that the Hearing Panel will grant Zanett's request for continued listing.

GENERAL TIMELINE

Oral hearings are held in Washington D.C. and are typically scheduled 30 to 45 days from the company's request for a hearing date. The Hearing Panel generally issues a written decision approximately 35 days after the hearing, but the company could receive a written decision sooner. Based on this timeline, Zanett expects to be issued a written decision from the Hearing Panel no sooner than 60 days from March 15, 2010. Until then, no delisting action will be taken before the hearing process concludes and the Hearing Panel has issued a written decision.

ZANETT'S PLAN

Dennis Harkins, Zanett's President stated, "We at Zanett plan to file an appeal with the Hearing Panel, and to vehemently fight to maintain our current Nasdaq listing. We believe we have a great company, with a great business, and are on track to successfully execute on our business plan. At $43 million in revenues, and a big sales pipeline, we deserve the right to this appeal. Although the outcome of any appeal process is never known, we believe we stand a good chance for success."

NEXT STEPS

Once the delisting determination letter is received from Nasdaq, Zanett plans to issue a press release within the proscribed 4 business days. Such future press release will announce the receipt of Nasdaq's delisting determination and the basis for the delisting, which includes citation of the applicable Listing Rule(s).

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

On September 17, 2009, Zanett, Inc. (the "Company") received a letter from Nasdaq notifying it that the bid price per share for the Company's common stock has closed below the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for 30 consecutive trading days and that, as a result, the Company no longer meets minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). No breach of any other listing requirement was listed in the letter.

Pursuant to Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company had 180 calendar days, or until March 15, 2010, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must close above $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive trading days. However, Nasdaq may, in its discretion, require the Company to maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share for a period in excess of ten consecutive trading days (but generally no longer than 20 consecutive business days) before determining that the Company has demonstrated an ability to maintain long-term compliance with the rule.
