Recon Technology Files Application to Withdraw Registration Statement

BEIJING, Aug. 9 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Recon Technology, Ltd. , a leading Chinese non-state-owned oil field services provider, announced the withdrawal of its registration statement on Form S-1 (Registration No. 333-166540) for a secondary offering of ordinary shares and warrants to purchase ordinary shares. The company's CEO, Mr. Yin Shenping, thanked all parties for their involvement in the offering but noted that, given current market conditions, an offering was not justified at this time.

Mr. Yin said, "Our company is growing and we are pleased with our continued profitability. Given this growth, we do not believe that the current market price of our ordinary shares accurately reflects the value of our company. We also do not believe that it is in our company's or shareholders' best interest to conduct an offering at present. We will continue to use the funds from our initial public offering to develop our business, and we may revisit an offering at some point in the future when market conditions are more favorable."
