American Spectrum Realty, Inc. (the "Company") filed a Form 12b-25 Notification of Late Filing on March 31, 2014 (the "Original 12b-25") confirming that the Company would be delaying the filing of the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 (the "2014 10-K").

In the Original 12b-25 the Company disclosed, among other things that, as a result of the departure of the Company's Chief Financial Officer, the Company is working with its accountants and consultants and reviewing its financial records, including journal entries and account balances related to the Company's financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2013. In addition, the Company disclosed that the Company and its consultants are continuing to evaluate the purchase price allocation and disclosures related to the transaction reported in the 8-K filed on January 7, 2014 (the "Purchase Price Allocation Issue").

The Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K on April 22, 2014, disclosing the records review and the Purchase Price Allocation Issue, and confirming the intention of the Company to file the 2013 10-K as soon as practicable. As a result of the records review and the Purchase Price Allocation Issue, the Company is delaying the filing of the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 (the "Q1 2014 10-Q"). The Company continues to work diligently to review its financial records and resolve the Purchase Price Allocation Issue and intends to file the 2013 10-K and the Q1 2014 10-Q as soon as practicable.

A press release, dated May 29, 2014, disclosing the records review and the Purchase Price Allocation Issue, and their impact on the timing of the filings of the 2013 10-K and the Q1 2014 10-Q is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is furnished herewith (the "Press Release"). The Press Release discloses the receipt by the Company of correspondence from NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange") advising the Company that it is not in compliance with certain of the Exchange's continued listing standards. The Company has submitted to the Exchange a compliance plan (the "Plan") and is working to regain compliance with the applicable continued listing standards within the timeframe specified in the Plan.

The Company's statements contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Actual results may differ materially from those included in the forward-looking statements. The Company intends those forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe-harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and the Company is including this statement for purposes of complying with those safe-harbor provisions., Forward-looking statements, which are based on certain assumptions and describe future plans, strategies, intentions and expectations, are generally identifiable by use of the words "expect," "project," "may," "will," "should,'" "could," "would," "intend," "plan," "purpose," "anticipate," "estimate," "believe," "continue," "predict," "potential" or the negative of such terms and other comparable terminology. The Company's ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain.
