NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2011) - Orsus Xelent Technologies, Inc. ("Orsus" or the "Company") (NYSE Amex: ORS), a designer and manufacturer of award-winning mobile phones for the Asian market, reported today receipt of a letter from the NYSE Amex LLC ("the Exchange"), which stated the Company is not in compliance with Section 1003 (a) (i) of the Exchange's Company Guide based on the Company's reporting of less than $2 million in stockholders' equity and losses from continuing operations and net losses in its two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010; and Section 1003 (a) (iv) of the Exchange's Company Guide with respect to its financial condition, which makes it questionable in the opinion of the Exchange as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations or timely meet its obligations. Additionally, the Company has been advised its common shares may not be suitable for auction market trading due to their low selling price.
As such, the Exchange requires the Company to submit a plan by May 23, 2011 addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Section 1003 (a) (iv) by July 21, 2011, and by Oct. 21, 2011 with Section 1003 (a) (i). Further, by July 21, 2011, the Company must effect a reverse split. Should the Company fail to regain compliance within the specified time periods, the Exchange will initiate delisting proceedings.
The Company reported it intends to comply with requirements in the letter from the Exchange and will submit a timely plan of compliance. The Company also reported it shortly will effect a reverse split of its common stock to raise the selling price.
