JINZHOU, China, September 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wonder Auto Technology, Inc. (the "Company"), a manufacturer of automotive electrical parts, safety products, suspension products and engine accessories in China, announced on August 31, 2012 that it informed the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") that it will consent to an order revoking the registration of its common stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), subject to its review of the proposed order and terms thereof. The Company also informed the SEC that its consent to the order "should not be construed to be an admission that the Company or any of its directors, officers or employees violated any law, rule or regulation, or that any action taken by the SEC would be justified."

The Company agreed to consent to a deregistration order after the SEC Division of Enforcement refused to grant the Company's request for additional time to complete its filings and advised the Company that it would pursue deregistration proceedings under Section 12(j). The Company's audit committee commenced an investigation in early 2011 that continued during a substantial portion of the year. Since the completion of the investigation, and the announcement of the audit committee's findings, the Company has been working diligently to complete its financial statements and file its delinquent reports. Despite the deregistration order, the Company intends to complete its outstanding periodic reports and intends to provide shareholders with current information with respect to its performance and financial condition. The Company is working with its auditors, Crowe Horwath (HK) CPA Limited, to complete the restatement of its financial results for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2010 and to complete its financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. The Company intends to release those financial statements as soon as possible.
