(Press Release)
Tuesday, June 26, 2012

FreeSeas Inc. (Nasdaq:FREE), a transporter of dry-bulk cargoes through the ownership and operation of a fleet of Handysize and Handymax vessels, announced that the Company received letters dated June 21, 2012 and June 25, 2012 from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating that for the previous 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the Company's common stock closed below the minimum $1.00 per share and the market value of the Company's publicly held common stock ("MVPHS") was below the minimum of $5,000,000.

 

These are both requirements for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market  pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rules 5450(a)(1) (the "Minimum Bid Price Rule") and 5450(b)(1) (the "MVPHS Rule"), respectively. The Nasdaq letters have no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's common stock.

The Company has been provided a grace period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance by maintaining a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share (December 18, 2012) and a closing MVPHS of $5,000,000 or  more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days (December 24, 2012). If at any time before those dates, the bid price of the Company's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more and the Company's MVPHS closes at $5,000,000 or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will notify the Company that it has achieved compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule and the MVPHS Rule.

FreeSeas intends to evaluate available options to resolve the deficiencies and regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule and the MVPHS Rule.
