XI'AN, CHINA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2015) - Skystar Bio-Pharmaceutical Company (NASDAQ: SKBI), a China-based manufacturer and distributor of veterinary medicine, vaccines, micro-organisms and feed additives, announced that on December 17, 2015, Skystar Bio-Pharmaceutical Company (the "Company") received notification from The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") informing the Company that a Nasdaq hearing panel had decided to delist the Company's shares from Nasdaq and that the Company's shares would be suspended from trading on Nasdaq at the open of business on December 21, 2015.

The Company previously disclosed a notification from Nasdaq informing the Company that it was subject to delisting because it failed to comply with Nasdaq's filing requirements set forth in Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), because it failed to file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, and Forms 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, and June 30, 2015. The failure to file the Quarterly Report constitutes an additional basis for delisting. The Company also previously disclosed that Nasdaq had notified the Company of two additional, and separate, bases for delisting under Listing Rule 5250(b)(1) (failure to disclose material non-public information) and Listing Rule 5101 (public interest concerns).

The Company will continue to work towards completing its filing requirements for the respective periods and other reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and other federal securities laws.

The Company expects to commence trading on the over-the-counter market on December 21, 2015.
