For a positive integer n, let σ(n) and ω(n) respectively denote the sum of the positive divisors of n and the number of distinct prime factors of n. A positive integer n is called a quasimultiperfect (QM) number if σ(n) = kn + 1 for some integer k ≥ 2. In this paper we give some necessary conditions to be satisfied by the prime factors of QM number n with ω(n) = 3 and ω(n) = 4. Also we show that no QM n with ω(n) = 4 can be a fourth power of an integer.
