GDT Tek Files With the SEC -- A Petition for Review and a Motion for a Stay of Actions Taken by the DTCC

LARGO, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) -  GDT Tek, Inc., (PINKSHEETS: GDTK) announced today that GDTK has filed with the SEC a Petition for Review and a Motion for a Stay of actions taken by the DTCC. The actions taken by DTCC restricted the Company's shareholders abilities from trading and depositing Company's stock since February 2012. DTCC has placed 2 separate chills on the stock; the initial one was resolved on April 18, 2012. Then unannounced to the Company, DTCC placed another chill on the Company's stock within days of the first Chill being resolved. After a month of asking DTCC the cause of the second Chill DTCC finally responded late May 2012. The Company was informed that this Chill arose out of concerns that DTCC had about large deposits of our common stock that occurred in the first half of 2009. After months of reviewing documents our Attorney issued confirming legal opinions that the shares issued through the Transfer Agent were legally issued which satisfied DTCC concerns. DTCC then sought supplemental legal opinions about shares that were already legally issued and then redistributed through brokers which did not involve the Transfer Agent. Our Attorney requested the transfer documents from DTCC in order to write a confirming legal opinion on those redistributed shares transferred through DTCC. These documents were never received from DTCC. This impasse leaves the Chill unresolved until DTCC sends the Company's Attorney the required documents. The Company was left with no other option but to proceed with these actions.
