EXCO Resources, Inc. (NYSE:XCO.BC) ("EXCO" or the "Company") today announced that on December 11, 2017, EXCO was notified by the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") of its noncompliance with continued listing standards because the average closing price of its common shares over a period of 30 consecutive trading days had fallen below $1.00 per share, which is the minimum average closing price per share required to maintain listing on the NYSE. Under the NYSE rules, during the six-month period from the date of the NYSE notice, EXCO can regain compliance if the price per share of EXCO's common shares on the last trading day of any calendar month within such period and the 30 trading day average price per common share for that month is at least $1.00. The notice is not related to the previously disclosed notice of noncompliance that the Company received from the NYSE in August 2017 related to the Company's average global market capitalization falling below $50 million over a trailing consecutive 30 trading-day period while its shareholders' equity was less than $50 million. On September 22, 2017, EXCO submitted to the NYSE its business plan setting forth how EXCO intends to regain compliance with the NYSE's market capitalization requirements, and, on November 2, 2017, the NYSE accepted EXCO's business plan. As a result, if EXCO fails to comply, or regain compliance with, the NYSE's market capitalization requirements by February 10, 2019, it will result in a delisting of EXCO's common shares from the NYSE. In addition, if EXCO's average market capitalization falls below $15 million for a 30 trading-day period or EXCO's share price falls to an abnormally low level, the NYSE may immediately suspend trading and commence delisting of EXCO's common shares. The notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the common shares, which will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE, subject to the Company's compliance with the other listing requirements of the NYSE. The common shares will continue to trade under the symbol "XCO.BC" to indicate the status of the common shares as "below compliance." The NYSE notification does not affect EXCO's business operations or its Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") reporting requirements and does not conflict with or cause an event of default under any of the Company's material debt agreements.
