BEIJING, Dec. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- China New Borun Corporation (NYSE: BORN; "Borun" or the "Company"), a leading producer and distributor of corn-based edible alcohol in China, announces today that on December 19, 2018, it received notice from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") that the Company did not meet the NYSE's price criteria for continued listing standard because the average closing price of the Company's American Depositary Shares, or ADSs, was less than $1.00 per ADS over a consecutive 30-trading-day period.
Under NYSE rules, the Company has six months following receipt of the notification to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement.

The Company expects to cure this deficiency within the prescribed timeframe and will duly notify the NYSE of its intention. The Company's ADSs will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE, subject to compliance with other NYSE continued listing standards and oversight by the NYSE. The Company is currently in compliance with all other NYSE quantitative continued listing standards. The NYSE notification does not affect the Company's business operations or its Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements.
