RACINE, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Twin Disc, Inc. (NASDAQ: TWIN), received a letter on May 14, 2014
from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying Twin Disc that it
was not in compliance with Nasdaq Rule 5250(c)(1) related to the filing
of periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange
Commission (“SEC”). The issuance of the letter is based upon Twin Disc
not filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March
28, 2014 on or before the due date of May 7, 2014.
On May 7, 2014, the Company filed a notification of late filing with the
SEC pursuant to Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
as amended. As disclosed in the filed Form 12b-25, the Company was
unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended
March 28, 2014 as a result of the Company discovering certain accounting
issues involving an unknown number of employees at its Belgian
subsidiary, Twin Disc International S.A. The Company’s Audit Committee
has begun an investigation into these matters to determine whether any
adjustments will be required with respect to the Company’s previously
issued financial statements, and whether there are any internal control

Twin Disc's common stock. The Company intends to file its quarterly
report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 28, 2014 as soon as
possible after the completion of an Audit Committee investigation, but
is unable to predict a specific date at this time due to the very early
stage of the investigation.
