P&F INDUSTRIES DELAYS REPORTING RESULTS FOR THREE- AND SIX MONTH PERIODS ENDED JUNE 30, 2009 AND RELATED CONFERENCE CALL

MELVILLE, N.Y. AUGUST 12, 2009. P&F Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq GM: PFIN) today announced that it is delaying its second quarter 2009 earnings release and related conference call previously scheduled for August 13, 2009 in order to evaluate the effect of the Company?s non-compliance with certain financial covenants to a senior lender and that lender?s verbal advice to the Company that it does not intend to provide a waiver of such non-compliance. Based on that evaluation, the Company expects to make appropriate adjustments to its financial statements for the second quarter of 2009. The lender had previously granted waivers of non-compliance with certain financial covenants in the past.

The Company hopes to release its earnings report and reschedule the conference call as soon as practicable. The Company does not intend to announce its second-quarter results, and is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, until after the completion of the evaluation and implementation of appropriate adjustments to its financial statements and related disclosures. Accordingly, the Company does not expect to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 prior to the prescribed due date of August 14, 2009. However, the Company does expect to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 prior to the extended due date of August 19, 2009.
