JINJIANG, China, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China Ceramics Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ Capital Market: CCCL) ("China Ceramics" or the "Company"), a leading Chinese manufacturer of ceramic tiles used for exterior siding and for interior flooring and design in residential and commercial buildings, today announced receipt of a letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market ("Nasdaq") stating that the Company has regained compliance with Nasdaq's Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) minimum closing bid price requirement and that the matter is now closed.
China Ceramics had previously been notified by Nasdaq that it was not in compliance with the minimum bid price rule because its common stock failed to meet the closing bid price of $1.00 or more for 30 consecutive business days. In order to regain compliance with the rule, the Company was required to maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 or more for at least 10 consecutive trading days. This requirement was met on June 12, 2016, the tenth consecutive trading day when the closing bid price of the Company's common stock was over $1.00. The Company undertook a reverse stock split on June 28, 2016, to cure the Nasdaq listing deficiency.
"Regaining compliance with Nasdaq's continued listing requirements in our securities on the Nasdaq Capital Market is important for the Company and our shareholders," commented Jiadong Huang, Chief Executive Officer of China Ceramics. "With this issue behind us, management will continue to pursue its objectives of strengthening the Company's core business and maximizing shareholder value."
