Rio Vista Energy Partners L.P. (NASDAQ: RVEP), an energy services master limited partnership, announced today that it had received on May 28, 2009 a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that since Rio Vista’s Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2009 was not reviewed by Rio Vista’s independent auditor, Rio Vista was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. Nasdaq has provided Rio Vista until July 27, 2009 to submit its plan to regain compliance (the “Plan”) and if the Plan is accepted by Nasdaq, Nasdaq may grant Rio Vista an additional extension of up to 180 calendar days from the original filing due date, or November 11, 2009, to regain compliance. Rio Vista plans to remedy the delinquency by having a review of the March 31, 2009 quarterly report by its independent auditor and amending the originally filed Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2009 to include such report.
