Stocks in this article: VIMC





BEIJING, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vimicro International Corporation (NASDAQ: VIMC) ("Vimicro" or the "Company"), a leading PC-camera processor and IP-based surveillance solution provider, today announced the return of Mr. David Tang as Chief Financial Officer, effective October 20, 2012 to replace Richard Wu, who is leaving the company for personal reasons. Separately, the Company announced the receipt of a notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market regarding compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing.

The Company is pleased to announce the return of David Tang to his prior role as Chief Financial Officer of Vimicro. Mr. Tang is an experienced financial professional, with extensive experience as the chief financial officer of Vimicro and other NASDAQ and Hong Kong-listed companies and as a Wall Street securities analyst. Most recently, he was active as an investor and as a managing partner of iFirst Capital LLC, a Shenzhen-based VC/PE firm. Before that, Tang served as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Vimicro from July 2008 to November 2010. Prior to that, he served as the Chief Financial Officer of CNinsure Inc. a NASDAQ listed company operating in China, and before that, Tang served as the Chief Financial Officer of IRICO Group and Chinasoft International, both Hong Kong-listed companies. Prior to those positions, he worked as an equity research analyst at Merrill Lynch & Co. in New York. Tang received an MBA degree from the Stern School of Business, New York University.

"I am pleased to welcome David back to Vimicro, and we look forward to benefiting from his experience gained as CFO of Vimicro and other listed companies. We believe that we will benefit from his good relationship with investors and his profound insight to our business development. David was instrumental in developing our strategy to enter the surveillance business and implemented many of the changes that today define our Company's transformation, accelerate the delivery of value to shareholders, and have launched the rapid expansion of our security-surveillance business. I would also like to thank Richard Wu for his service to the Company, and we wish him well in his future endeavors."

Separately, the Company has received a notification from the NASDAQ Stock Market, indicating that the minimum bid price of the Company's ADS has been below $1.00 per ADS for 30 consecutive business days and as a result, the Company is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). The NASDAQ notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's ADS. Under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until April 8, 2013, within which to regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company's ADS must meet or exceed $1.00 per ADS for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during this 180-day grace period.

The Company actively monitors the price of its ADSes and will consider available options, including, but not limited to, changing the ADS ratio, to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the NASDAQ.
