For Immediate Release
WSI INDUSTRIES' LISTING TRANSFERRED TO NASDAQ SMALLCAP MARKET
MARCH 22, 2000--WAYZATA, MN--WSI Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: WSCI) today reported that it has been
notified by The Nasdaq Stock Market that its listing will be transferred from the National Market System to the
SmallCap Market effective with the open of business on March 23, 2000.
The Company said it was notified by Nasdaq that it is not in compliance with the minimum net tangible asset
requirement of $4 million to maintain its listing on the National Market. The Company said the reason for the non-
compliance is due to the goodwill related to the acquisitions of Taurus Numeric Tool, Inc. (February 1999) and
Bowman Tool & Machining, Inc. (August 1999).
Michael J. Pudil, president and chief executive officer said that although he is disappointed by the Nasdaq action,
he is extremely encouraged by the positive impact of the Taurus and Bowman acquisitions on the Company's
operations. He said these acquisitions have accelerated the company's growth, been accretive to consolidated
earnings from the outset, and significantly diversified and expanded the Company's base of business. Pudil said
that as a result of these factors, he remains very optimistic about the Company's prospects for all of fiscal 2000.
WSI Industries, Inc. is a leading contract manufacturer that specializes in the machining of complex, high-
precision parts for a wide range of industries, including agriculture, construction, aerospace and avionics,
recreational vehicles and computers.
