TIANJIN, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- China Auto Logistics Inc. (the "Company" or "CALI") (NASDAQ: CALI), a top seller in China of luxury imported automobiles, a leading provider of auto-related services and a soon to be entrant in used car sales in China, reported today it has received an extension until September 12, 2014 to respond to the Depository Trust Company's ("DTC") determination to suspend all book entry services provided to DTC participants with respect to CALI's shares (the "Global Lock"). Initially, the Company was given until August 13, 2014 to respond. The Company said it has retained the law firm of Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference (SRFF) on this matter which requested additional time to review records and prepare a response to DTC.
Mr. Tong Shiping, Chairman and CEO of the Company, stated, "We remain staunchly opposed to DTC's harmful decision to impose a 'global lock' on CALI shares, particularly in view of the fact that the Company has not been accused of any wrongdoing, and current shareholders of CALI are far removed from the purported actions of the individuals alleged by the SEC to have traded the shares illegally in the past."
A Bright Future
Mr. Tong added, "Further, as reflected in recent actions we've taken -- including an acquisition which we believe will help us become a major player in China's rapidly growing used car market, and a cooperation framework agreement announced this week which we think will dramatically expand our luxury imported vehicles sales and services businesses -- we see a bright future ahead that our patient shareholders deserve to be the beneficiaries of. We intend to do everything we can to help ensure this is the case."
Determined to Stay the Course
Mr. Tong stated further, "While several other China-based companies sadly have responded to the challenges of being listed in the U.S. by dropping out, we are determined to stay the course, which we firmly believe is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders."
