Iao Kun Group Holding Company Limited Receives NASDAQ Notification of Non-Compliance with Minimum Bid Price Rule

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Iao Kun Group Holding Company Limited ("IKGH") (NASDAQ:IKGH), which operates through its subsidiaries and related promotion entities that act as VIP room gaming promoters and a collaborator, today announced that on September 13, 2016, it received a written notice (the "Notice") from the Listing Qualifications department of The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") indicating that IKGH is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1).

The Nasdaq Listing Rules require listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share and, based upon the closing bid price for the 30 consecutive business days ended September 12, 2016, IKGH did not meet this requirement. IKGH has been provided a 180 day period in which to regain compliance. If at any time during this period the closing bid price of IKGH's common stock is at least $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, IKGH will receive a written confirmation of compliance from Nasdaq and the matter will be closed.

In addition, following the initial 180 day period, IKGH may be eligible for an additional 180 day period to regain compliance, subject to IKGH effecting a reverse stock split during the second 180 day compliance period if necessary to cure the deficiency.

At present, IKGH will work to regain compliance during the initial 180 day compliance period and will actively monitor its performance with respect to the listing standards.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts. Such forward-looking statements, based upon the current beliefs and expectations of IKGH's management, are subject to risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from the forward-looking statements. The gaming industry is characterized by an element of chance. Theoretical win rates for IKGH's promotion entities' VIP gaming room operations depend on a variety of factors, some beyond their control. In addition to the element of chance, theoretical win rates are also affected by other factors, including gaming patrons' skill and experience, the mix of games played, the financial resources of gaming patrons, the spread of table limits, the volume of bets placed by IKGH's promotion entities' gaming patrons and the amount of time gaming patrons spend on gambling — thus VIP gaming rooms' actual win rates may differ greatly over short time periods, such as from quarter to quarter, and could cause their quarterly results to be volatile. These factors, alone or in combination, have the potential to negatively impact the VIP gaming rooms' win rates. Investors and potential investors should consult all of the information set forth herein and should also refer to the risk factors set forth in IKGH's Annual Report on Form 20-F filed in March 2016, and other reports filed or to be filed from time-to-time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
