Camber Energy, Inc. Receives Noncompliance Notice from NYSE American - Announces Measures to Regain Compliance

SAN ANTONIO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 11, 2017 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: CEI) (''Camber'' or the ''Company'') received a deficiency letter (''Letter'') from NYSE AMERICAN LLC (''NYSE American'' or the ''Exchange'') stating that the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards as set forth in Section 103(f)(v) of the NYSE American Company Guide (''Company Guide''). The Letter stated that because the Company's common stock had been trading below $0.20 on a 30-day average price as of October 5, 2017, the Company was not in compliance with Section 1003(f)(v) of the Company Guide. The NYSE American staff determined that the Company's continued listing is predicated on it effecting a reverse stock split of its common stock or otherwise demonstrating sustained price improvement within a reasonable period of time, which the staff determined to be until April 5, 2018. The Company intends to regain compliance with the listing standards set forth in the Company Guide by undertaking a measure or measures that are for the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.

In the interim, the Company's common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE American while it attempts to regain compliance with the listing standards, subject to the Company's compliance with other continued listing requirements. The NYSE American notification does not affect the Company's business operations or its reporting obligations under the Securities and Exchange Commission regulations and rules and does not conflict with or cause an event of default under any of the Company's material agreements.
