Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing


On October 6, 2015, SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc.(the “Company”) received written notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with the $1.00 minimum closing bid price requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Global Market, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). The notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's common stock, and its common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol “SPU” at this time. In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until April 4, 2016, to regain compliance with the minimum closing bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for at least ten consecutive business days during this 180-day grace period.


If the Company does not regain compliance with the minimum closing bid price requirement by April 4, 2016, NASDAQ may provide written notification to the Company that its securities will be subject to delisting. At that time, the Company may have alternatives to obtain an extension and/or avoid a delisting, including an appeal of NASDAQ’s delisting determination to the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel, or, alternatively, an additional grace period of 180 days in connection with a listing transfer to The NASDAQ Capital Market provided that the Company meets the applicable market value of publicly held shares requirement for continued listing and all other applicable requirements for initial listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market (except for the bid price requirement) and notifies NASDAQ of its intent to cure this deficiency.


The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price for its common stock between now and April 4, 2016 and will consider the various available options available to the Company if its common stock does not trade at a level that is likely to regain compliance.


Item 8.01 Other Events


On October 8, 2015, the Company issued a press release, attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, announcing that it received NASDAQ notice of bid price deficiency.
