Quick-Med Technologies Announces Voluntary Suspension of Reporting Requirements

GAINESVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - November 13, 2013) - Quick-Med Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: QMDT) announced today that its board of directors decided to file on or around November 13, 2013, a Certification and Notice of Termination of Registration Under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Suspension of Duty to File Reports under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act on Form 15 ("Form 15") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to voluntarily suspend the Company's reporting requirements under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. Upon filing of the Form 15, the Company will no longer be obligated to file certain Exchange Act reports with the SEC, including annual reports under Form 10-K, quarterly reports under Form 10-Q and current reports under Form 8-K unless the SEC denies the effectiveness of Form 15, in which case the Company is required to file all the reports within 60 days of such denial. The Company's board of directors determined, after careful consideration, that suspending reporting is in the overall best interests of the Company. Among other factors, the board of directors considered the cost savings to be realized by the Company by eliminating its obligations to file reports with the SEC.

One of the reasons that the Company is eligible to suspend its reporting obligations is because it has fewer than 300 record holders of its common stock as of the date hereof and it anticipates maintaining such eligibility until the filing of the Form 15.

The Company expects that as a result of the filing of the Form 15 its common stock will be removed from trading on the OTCQB Marketplace. Shares may begin trading on the OTCPink Marketplace, but there can be no assurance that there will be a market for the Company's securities, and the liquidity of such trading market may be very limited.
