CHANGSHU, China, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sutor Technology Group Limited (the "Company" or "Sutor") (Nasdaq: TOR), one of the leading China-based manufacturers and service providers for fine finished steel products used by a variety of downstream applications, today announced that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on NASDAQ Capital Market.

As previously disclosed, the Company received a notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market on August 8, 2014, indicating that the Company's common stock failed to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 over the previous 30 consecutive business days as required by the Listing Rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market. On July 13, 2015, the Company received a letter from the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications department stating that because the Company maintained the closing bid price of its common stock at $1.00 per share or greater for the last 10 consecutive business days, from June 26, 2015 to July 10, 2015, they determined that the Company has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.

The Company will continue to strive to increase shareholder value. In connection with our transformation and upgrading, we implemented a series of measures to improve our brand value and recognition including changing trading symbol to "TOR" (which stands for "Transformation, Opportunity and Remolding"), launching mobile application for fine finished steel products and completing two new precision cold rolling processing production lines. We believe, as we carry forward strategic measures in the future, we will become a more recognizable fine finished steel supply chain service provider.
