Item 8.01.
Other Events

On June 12, 2012, Imperial Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) and Q.E.P. Co., Inc. (“QEP”) entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) with regard to the proposed acquisition of the Company by QEP (the “Merger Transaction”). In the LOI, QEP has proposed to pay not more than $.30 for each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock. QEP has the right to terminate the LOI at any time for any reason. The LOI automatically terminates as of July 12, 2012 unless a definitive merger agreement was entered by such date or the parties agreed to extend the LOI.

On July 12, 2012, the Company and QEP agreed to extend the term of the LOI until July 30, 2012. All other terms and conditions of the non-binding LOI remain in full force and effect.

The proposed Merger Transaction would be subject to a number of customary closing conditions, including obtaining approval from the holders of a majority of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock at a Company shareholder meeting. There can be no assurance that the Company will enter into a definitive merger agreement or that the Company’s shareholders would receive $.30 per share.

A press release regarding the foregoing is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
