KUNMING, China, Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc.

On September 22, 2010 the Company received notice from the NYSE Amex Staff indicating that the Company is below certain of the Exchange's continued listing standards due to the fact that its stockholder's equity is less than $2,000,000, it has sustained losses from continuing operations, and it has net losses in two out of its three most recent fiscal years, as set forth in Section 1003(a)(i) of the NYSE Amex Company Guide. The Company was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan of compliance to the Exchange to demonstrate its ability to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by March 22, 2012. On October 29, 2010 and November 29, 2010, the Company presented its plan and responses to supplemental questions to the Exchange.
On December 6, 2010 the Exchange notified the Company that it accepted the Company's plan of compliance and granted the Company an extension until March 22, 2012 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. The Company will be subject to periodic review by Exchange Staff during the extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the NYSE AMEX.
Mr. Gui Hua Lan, Chief Executive Officer of China Shenghuo, stated, "We are executing on our plan and believe the successful execution of this plan will enable us to regain compliance with the Exchange's listing standards."
