Guanwei Recycling Is Notified By NASDAQ That It Is Not in Compliance With Section 5810 of the NASDAQ Listing Rules Due to the Recent Price of Its Common Stock

FUQING CITY, CHINA--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2014) -   Guanwei Recycling Corp. (the "Company" or "Guanwei") (NASDAQ: GPRC), China's leading clean tech manufacturer of recycled low density polyethylene (LDPE), reported today it received notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") that because the Company has not maintained a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share for the last 30 consecutive business days, it is not in compliance with Section 5810 of the NASDAQ Listing Rules (The "Rule").

According to the notice, the Company must regain compliance in a period of 180 calendar days, or if it does not regain compliance, it may be eligible for additional time. In order to regain compliance the Company must cure the deficiency and also meet various other requirements, as more fully described in a Form 8-K filed by the Company today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. If not, NASDAQ may determine the Company's securities are subject to delisting.

The Company also states in the 8-K that it intends to consider all available options to regain compliance with Rule 5810, but cannot assure it will be able to regain compliance or subsequently maintain compliance with the Rule. Failure to maintain the listing on NASDAQ may have a material adverse effect on the price or liquidity of the Company's common stock.
