Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 9, 2013, Central European Distribution Corporation (“CEDC”) requested a hearing to appeal the Nasdaq Listing Qualification Staff determination to initiate procedures to delist CEDC’s securities from The Nasdaq Stock Market and to suspend trading of CEDC’s common stock at the opening of business on January 11, 2013. The determination was based on CEDC not having held its annual meeting of shareholders by December 31, 2012. As a result of CEDC’s request, Nasdaq has scheduled a hearing on March 21, 2013 and stayed the delisting action pending a final written decision by the Nasdaq Hearing Panel.
