BEIJING, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Lotus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB: LTUS) ("Lotus" or the "Company") issued the following statement: For the past five years when Lotus Pharmaceuticals became a public company on the OTC bulletin board, the Company invested a significant amount of capital every year in maintaining a good listing status. In the past two years, the Company has put in a large amount of capital in the building and furnishings of its new headquarters in Beijing Chaoyang District. The funding for the new building all came from the Company's operational income and the Company has not received any external funding support. As a result, the Company is experiencing a liquidity crunch currently with an extremely low level of working capital, and will be unable to continue to spend on auditing and other professional services that are required for a public company. Given our financial condition, if we could not secure additional investments from outside, the Company will not be able to fund professional services that are necessary for a public company, such as auditing and legal services, and the Company could get delisted eventually. If there are investors that would like to support us and provide us with additional funding, we would be glad to work out a solution so that we could maintain our good listing status. We appreciate your understanding, help, and support over the years.
