China Shenghuo Announces Receipt Of Deficiency Notice And Voluntary Delisting From NYSE Amex LLC And Deregistration With The SEC

KUNMING, China, April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex LLC: KUN) ("China Shenghuo" or the "Company"), today announced that on April 17, 2012, it received a deficiency letter (the "Deficiency Letter") from the NYSE Amex LLC ("AMEX") stating that the Company has resolved the continued listing deficiency with respect to Section 1003(a)(i) of the AMEX's Company Guide (the "Company Guide") referenced in AMEX's letter dated September 22, 2010. 

However, as a result of the Company sustaining losses which are so substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become so impaired that it appears questionable, in the opinion of AMEX, as to whether such issuer will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature, the Company is no longer in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide.  The Deficiency Letter states that, in order to maintain its AMEX listing, the Company must submit a plan of compliance by May 1, 2012, advising AMEX how it intends to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide by July 2, 2012.  If the Company does not submit such a plan or if the plan is not accepted by AMEX, the Company would be subject to delisting procedures as set forth in Section 1010 and part 12 of the Company Guide. 

In view of, among other things, the belief of the Board of Directors that under the Company's current circumstances, it is not reasonably practicable for the Company to establish and implement a plan of compliance that would satisfy AMEX's continued listing requirements, the substantial financial burden on the Company as a result of its status as a U.S. public company, the Company's inability to raise capital in the United States and the minimal benefits derived from being a U.S. public company, the Board of Directors of the Company determined on April 19, 2012 that it is in the best interest of the Company to voluntarily delist the Company's common stock from AMEX and deregister its shares with U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). In connection therewith, the Company notified AMEX on April 20, 2012 of the Company's intention to file a Form 25 - Notification of Removal from Listing and/or Registration under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), with the SEC on or about April 30, 2012.

It is expected that the delisting will take effect on or about May 10, 2012. Accordingly, the Company expects that the last day of trading of its common stock on AMEX will be on or about May 10, 2012. 

On the effective date of the delisting, the Company plans to file a Form 15 with the SEC to suspend its duty to file reports under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act.  Upon filing of the Form 15, the Company's obligation to file certain reports with the SEC, including reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will immediately be suspended.
