BAODING, China, June 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Ltd. ("Yingli Green Energy" or "the Company") (NYSE:YGE), one of the world's leading solar panel manufacturers, today announced that following notification from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") on June 28, 2018 that the NYSE had determined to commence proceedings to delist the Company's American Depositary Shares (ADS) as it was not in compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in Section 802.01B of the NYSE Listed Company Manual due to its failure to maintain an average global market capitalization over a consecutive 30 trading-day period of at least $50 million and its stockholders' equity was less than $50,000,000, the Company informed the NYSE that it does not intend to appeal the delisting determination. Therefore, the NYSE suspended trading in the Company's ADS effective immediately.
The NYSE stated that it will apply to the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to delist the Company's ADSs. The Company anticipates that its ADSs will begin trading on the OTC Pink on July 2, 2018, under the symbol "YGEHY". The Company expects transition of the Company's ADSs to the OTC Pink marketplace will have no effect on the legal rights of the holders of the Company's ADSs. The Company expects the transition to the OTC Pink marketplace will not affect the Company's normal business operations either. The Company will remain subject to the public reporting requirements of the SEC as applicable to foreign private issuers following the transition and the Company expects to continue to comply with such requirements. However, the Company plans to cease issuing quarterly earnings releases on a regular basis after the transition.
