QINGDAO, China and ROCKVILLE, MD, USA, Aug. 24 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Synutra International, Inc. (Nasdaq: SYUT; "Synutra"), one of China's leading manufacturers of dairy-based nutritional products for infants, children and adults, has received a staff determination letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the company's common stock is subject to delisting from the Nasdaq Global Market for failure to file a quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2007 with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) by the required deadline. Timely filing of annual and periodic reports with the SEC is required for continued listing under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14). Synutra had previously filed a Form 12b-25 with the SEC stating that it would be unable to file its Form 10-Q by the original filing deadline of August 14, 2007 due to the company's anticipated restatement of its historical financial statements for fiscal 2007.

The company has appealed Nasdaq's determination and requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Listing Qualification Panel (Panel). The appeal and hearing request will stay the suspension of trading in the company's securities pending a decision by the Panel, and the company's stock will remain listed during this time period. However, there can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the company's request for continued listing.

Synutra intends to file, as soon as possible, (i) an amended annual report on Form 10-K with restated financial statements as of and for the year ended March 31, 2007; (ii) amended quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for each fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2006, September 30, 2006 and December 31, 2006; and (iii) a quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2007.
