KUNMING, China, June 8 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex Equities: KUN) ("China Shenghuo" or the "Company"), which is engaged in the research, development, manufacture, and marketing of pharmaceutical, nutritional supplement and cosmetic products in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that the NYSE Amex LLC (the "NYSE Amex" or "Exchange") has accepted the Company's plan of compliance for continued listing.
On February 10, 2009, the Company received notice from the NYSE Amex Staff indicating that the Company is below certain of the Exchange's continued listing standards due to the Company's failure to hold an annual meeting of stockholders in 2008, as set forth in Section 704 of the NYSE Amex Company Guide. The Company submitted a plan of compliance to the Exchange by February 17, 2009. The plan was accepted by the Exchange and a listing extension was granted until August 11, 2009. The Company will be subject to periodic review by Exchange Staff during the extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the Exchange.
The Company will hold its annual meeting of stockholders at 10:00 A.M. Beijing Time on Monday, June 15, 2009. The Company believes that holding the annual meeting will satisfy the deficiency, and the Company intends to hold future annual meetings of stockholders on an annual basis, in accordance with the Exchange's listing standards.
"We are pleased with the decision by the Exchange to continue our listing and look forward to meeting the business goals established by the Company in our plan," said Mr. Gui Hua Lan, Chief Executive Officer of China Shenghuo.
