China Shenghuo Announces Its Intent Not to File Form 15 At This Time and Continue to be a Reporting Company Until Such Time As It Is Allowed to Suspend Its Reporting Obligations
KUNMING, China, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex LLC: KUN) ("China Shenghuo" or the "Company"), today announced its intent not to file Form 15 at this time and continue to be a reporting company until such time as it is allowed to suspend its reporting obligations.
In a Press Release dated April 20, 2012, the Company announced its intention to file a Form 15, which would, upon such filing, suspend the Company's obligations to file certain reports with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including reports on Form 10-K, 10-Q,and 8-K. It was anticipated that such Form 15 would be filed on or about May 10, 2012, upon the effectiveness of the Form 25 - Notification of Removal from Listing and/or Registration under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), filed in connection with the Company's voluntary delisting of its common stock from trading on NYSE Amex.
In discussions between the Company's legal counsel and the SEC, the SEC has taken the position that the exemption that the Company had sought to rely upon under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act to suspend its reporting obligations is unavailable to it at this time. As such, the Company at this time will not file a Form 15, and it will continue to be a reporting company under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act until such time as it is allowed to suspend its reporting obligations, which the Company expects to be no later than the first quarter of 2013. The Company therefore is preparing its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2012, and expects to file it as soon as practicable.
