Dec 29, 2015, 16:15 ET from TCP International Holdings Ltd.

AURORA, Ohio, Dec. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TCP International Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: TCPI) (the "Company") today announced that on December 23, 2015, it was notified by the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that it was not in compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in Section 802.01C of the NYSE Listed Company Manual because the average closing price of the Company's common shares was less than $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.

The Company plans to notify the NYSE of its intent to cure the deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSE continued listing requirement. The Company can avoid delisting if, during the six-month period following receipt of the NYSE notice, on the last trading-day of any calendar month, the Company's common stock has a closing share price of at least $1.00 and an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on the last trading day of that month.

Under the NYSE rules, the Company's common stock will continue to be traded on the NYSE during this period, subject to the Company's compliance with other continued listing requirements.

The NYSE notification does not affect the Company's business operations or its Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements and does not conflict with or cause an event of default under any of the Company's material debt or other agreements.
