Aoxing Pharmaceutical Company, Inc. Receives Notice of Extension and Additional Notice of Noncompliance From NYSE MKT LLC

JERSEY CITY, NJ - December 4, 2013 - Aoxing Pharmaceutical Company, Inc. (NYSE MKT: AXN) ("Aoxing Pharma"), a specialty pharmaceutical company focusing on research, development, manufacturing, and distribution of narcotic, pain-management, and addiction treatment pharmaceuticals, announced on October 30, 2013 that it had received notice from NYSE MKT LLC that, based upon the financial statements contained in Aoxing Pharma's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2013, Aoxing Pharma (a) is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide since it reported stockholders' equity of less than $6,000,000 at June 30, 2013 and has incurred losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in its five most recent fiscal years then ended, and (b) is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide since it has sustained losses that 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 the NYSE MKT, as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature.

 

The Company was afforded the opportunity to submit plans of compliance to the Exchange. On November 8, 2013 the Company presented its plan of compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv). On December 3, 2013 the Exchange notified the Company that it accepted the Company's plan of compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) and granted the Company an extension until March 1, 2014 to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv). The Company will be subject to periodic review by the Exchange Staff during the extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the NYSE MKT LLC.

 

On November 25, 2013 the Company presented its plan of compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii). However, on December 3, 2013 the Exchange notified the Company that its review of the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 indicated that Aoxing Pharma is also not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(ii) of the Company Guide since it reported stockholders' equity of less than $4,000,000 at September 30, 2013 and has incurred losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in three of its four most recent fiscal years ended June 30, 2013. The notice advised that Aoxing Pharma is not required to submit an additional plan of compliance, but will be permitted to supplement the plan of compliance submitted on November 25, 2013 to address how it intends to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(ii) by April 27, 2015. If the plan, as supplemented, is not accepted, Aoxing Pharma will be subject to delisting proceedings.

 

Management of Aoxing Pharma intends to supplement the plan of compliance submitted on November 25, 2013 on the stated schedule.
