BEIJING, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ China Century Dragon Media, Inc. (NYSE Amex: CDM) (the "Company"), today announced that, as expected, on May 17, 2011, the Company received an additional notice of non-compliance from the NYSE Amex LLC (the "Exchange") due to the delay in the filing of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 (the "Form 10-Q") with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which report is required by Sections 134 and 1101 of the Exchange's Company Guide (the "Company Guide"). The Company plans to address its plan for filing the Form 10-Q at its scheduled hearing before a Listing Qualifications Panel of the Exchange's Committee on Securities (the "Panel").
As previously reported, on March 23, 2011 and April 5, 2011, the Company received delisting notifications from the Exchange unless it appealed the Staff's delisting determination, which was based on the Exchange's review of the resignation letter from the Company's former auditor, MaloneBailey LLP, and the delay in the filing of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. The Company timely requested a hearing before the Panel. The most recent notice of non-compliance has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's common stock on the Exchange.
