China Lending Announces Receipt of Delisting Determination from Nasdaq and Requests for Hearing before Nasdaq Hearings Panel

2019-07-16 19:00 12239

BEIJING, URUMQI, China and HANGZHOU, China, July 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- China Lending Corporation ("China Lending" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CLDC), a non-bank financial corporation servicing micro, small and medium sized enterprises in China, today announced that on July 11, 2019, the Company received a delisting determination letter from Nasdaq Listing Qualifications ("Nasdaq"), indicating that the Company's securities would be subject to delisting from the Nasdaq Capital Market based on its non-compliance with the continued listing requirements, unless the Company timely requests a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the "Panel").

As previously announced, on May 1, 2019, the Company received a notification letter from Nasdaq notifying that the Company is no longer in compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market's continued listing requirement of a minimum of $2,500,000 in stockholders' equity, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1). Nasdaq also determined that the Company does not meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations for continued listing.

In according with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(2)(A), the Company submitted a draft plan to regain compliance and supplementary supporting materials. However, after reviewing the submission, Nasdaq has determined that the draft plan, together with the supporting materials, is not sufficiently definitive to evidence the Company's ability to achieve near term compliance with the continued listing requirements or sustain such compliance over an extended period of time.

The Company has requested a hearing before the Panel to appeal the delisting determination. The hearing request has stayed the delisting action of the Company's securities by Nasdaq pending the Panel's final decision. There can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing.

The Company is doing everything within its control to regain compliance with the Nasdaq listing rules. If the Panel upholds the delisting determination following the hearing, the Company's securities may be eligible for quotation on the OTC Bulletin Boards or in the "pink sheets."
