Transmeridian Exploration Receives AMEX Acceptance of Its Plan to Regain Compliance With Continued Listing Standards
HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Transmeridian Exploration Incorporated (AMEX:TMY) (the "Company") announced today that the American Stock Exchange ("AMEX") has accepted the Company's plan to regain compliance with the AMEX's continued listing standards. As previously disclosed, on May 22, 2008, the Company received notice from the AMEX staff indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the AMEX Company Guide due to sustained losses which are so substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become so impaired that it appears questionable, in the opinion of the AMEX, as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature. The Company was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan of compliance to the AMEX and on June 5, 2008 presented its plan to the AMEX. The plan outlined the actions the Company has taken and will take that it expects would bring it into compliance with the AMEX's continued listing standards. On July 30, 2008, the AMEX notified the Company that it accepted the Company's plan and granted the Company an extension until October 31, 2008 to regain compliance with the AMEX's continued listing standards. The Company will be subject to periodic review by the AMEX during the extension period, and the Company must continue to provide the AMEX staff with updates in conjunction with the initiatives of its plan. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with the AMEX's continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the AMEX.
