Kandi Technologies Announces Conclusion of SEC Investigation

JINHUA, China, Feb. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. ("Kandi" or the "Company") announced today that it received a letter dated February 9, 2015 from the staff of the Enforcement Division of the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") advising that the Division has concluded its investigation of Kandi and, based on information received to date, does not intend to recommend to the Commission that any enforcement action be brought against Kandi. This formally concludes the SEC's investigation that commenced in 2013. As previously disclosed, Kandi received notice of a formal investigation and a subpoena dated November 21, 2013 in connection with the SEC's investigation.

Hu Xiaoming, Kandi's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer commented: "We are extremely pleased that the SEC has concluded its investigation, particularly since its existence was the subject of much misleading and harmful press by those holding short positions in the Company's securities. We respect the SEC and its mandate to protect investors, and cooperated in its investigation. As I have stated before, Kandi's management's primary interests have always been twofold – shareholder protection and building a solid foundation for the continued long term growth of the Company. We will continue to pursue those goals with transparency and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations."
