BEIJING, Nov. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Recon Technology, Ltd. (Nasdaq: RCON) ("Recon" or the "Company"), a Chinese non-state-owned oilfield services provider, today announced that on November 17, 2011, The Nasdaq OMX Group ("Nasdaq") sent the Company a letter (the "Nasdaq Letter") indicating that, as a result of the Company's failure to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2011, the Company violated Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the "Rule").

The November Nasdaq Letter follows a similar letter dated October 17, 2011 from Nasdaq regarding the Company's failure to file its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011 (the "October Nasdaq Letter").

In the November Nasdaq Letter, Nasdaq has clarified that the Compliance date would be April 10, 2012.

Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(b) requires that the Company promptly disclose receipt of the Nasdaq Letter, which disclosure must include the continued listing criteria that the Company failed to meet. The Company is issuing this press release to satisfy Nasdaq's disclosure requirement.
