HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., April 19, 2017  –

Air Industries Group (NYSE MKT:AIRI) – Air Industries Group (“Air Industries” or the “Company”), an integrated manufacturer of precision equipment assemblies and components for leading aerospace and defense prime contractors, announced today that, on April 18, 2017, the Company received notice from the staff of NYSE MKT LLC (the “NYSE” or the “Exchange”) that it was not in compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE Company Guide, as a result of the Company’s inability to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.  The letter also states that the Company’s failure to timely file such Annual Report on Form 10-K is a material violation of its listing agreement with the Exchange and, therefore, pursuant to Section 1003(d) of the Company Guide, the Exchange is authorized to suspend and, unless prompt corrective action is taken, remove the Company’s securities from the Exchange.

The Company filed the delinquent Annual Report on Form 10-K today

The Exchange has informed the Company that, in order to maintain its listing on the Exchange following the failure to timely file the Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Company must, by May 18, 2017, submit a plan of compliance (the “Plan”) addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the Company Guide by October 18, 2017 (the “Plan Period”).

If the Plan is accepted, the Company will be able to continue its listing during the Plan Period, during which time the Company will be subject to periodic review to determine whether it is making progress consistent with the Plan. The letter from the Exchange advised that if the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards of the Company Guide by October 18, 2017 with respect to the delayed Annual Report on Form 10-K, or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the Plan during the Plan Period, then the Exchange staff will initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate.

The Company believes that with the filing of the delinquent Annual Report on Form 10-K it is in full compliance with the NYSE Company Guide.
