PacWest Equities, Inc. Announces Effectiveness of Forward Split/Dividend of Its Common Stock

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Nov 2, 2012) -  PacWest Equities, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PWEI) (the "Company") is pleased to provide further details pertaining to the recently announced 3-for-1 dividend (a/k/a forward split) to shareholders of its common stock.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. ("FINRA") has approved this action effective the opening of trading November 5, 2012. The stock will trade under the temporary symbol "PWEID" for a period of 20 business days after which it will revert to the symbol "PWEI".

Although the Company previously set the record date for the dividend as at October 18, 2012, the payment date as declared by FINRA has been for the close of business today, November 2, 2012. All shareholders owning shares at the close of business today, November 2, 2012, will be eligible to receive the dividend.

As the dividend shares are payable upon surrender, it is anticipated that registered brokerage firms will have the dividend transaction processed automatically in customer accounts shortly after FINRA declares the dividend effective. Shareholders holding physical certificates representing their shares are NOT required to submit their certificates for exchange to receive full credit for dividend shares. Physical certificate holders may contact the Company's transfer agent, First American Stock Transfer Inc., to facilitate the exchange of their old certificates for post-dividend shares should they wish to do so.

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities.
