P&F INDUSTRIES REGAINS COMPLIANCE WITH NASDAQ MARKETPLACE RULE

MELVILLE, N.Y., October 27, 2009 -- P&F Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ GM:PFIN ) announced today that the Company received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market on October 22, 2009 advising the Company that it had regained compliance with NASDAQ?s Marketplace Rule 5450(b)(1)(C) (previously known as Market Place Rule 4450(a)(2)) (the ?Rule?) which requires companies listed on The Nasdaq Global Market to maintain a minimum market value of publicly held shares (?MVPHS?) of $5 million.

Previously, on October 21, 2008, NASDAQ notified the Company that it was not in compliance with the Rule over the previous 30 consecutive trading days. The October 21, 2008 deficiency letter also stated that the enforcement of the Rule was temporarily suspended through January 16, 2009 due to the economic environment, and that following the reinstatement of the Rule, NASDAQ would provide the Company 90 calendar days to regain compliance by achieving a MVPHS of at least $5 million for at least 10 consecutive trading days. Enforcement of the Rule had been further suspended by NASDAQ, so that the Company had until November 2, 2009 to regain compliance. In its October 22, 2009 letter, NASDAQ confirmed to the Company that the matter is now closed.
