SHENZHEN, China, April 8 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- FUQI International, Inc. (Nasdaq: FUQI) today provided updates relating to its March 16, 2010 press release that discussed the Company's preliminary fourth quarter 2009 financial results and potential restatements on previously issued quarterly financial statements for the first three fiscal quarters of 2009.

Mr. Yu Kwai Chong, Chairman and CEO, stated, "We truly appreciate your patience and are working diligently on a plan to further strengthen our internal financial reporting controls and remediate any issues surrounding our financial restatements. Since the previous announcement, the management team has further identified and proactively initiated a wide range of specific actions to better understand and address potential root causes as well as to ensure corrective actions are being implemented in a timely manner. At this time, we are AAAAAA good progress in addressing the causes that led to the restatements and we are concurrently taking remedial actions to strengthen our Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404 compliance program.

More specifically, we have recruited an additional experienced internal audit professional from an international accounting firm in recent weeks to lead our Sarbanes-Oxley 404 compliance efforts in 2010, as well as an experienced external Sarbanes-Oxley 404 consultant to review and provide recommendations on company's reporting policies and procedures across each major department. In addition, we are working on our First Quarter 2010 Form 10-Q simultaneously to ensure it can be completed as soon as possible after the Annual Report on Form 10-K and amended 2009 Form 10-Qs are fileAAAAAAAAA> Additionally, general order demand in both our wholesale and retail businesses remains solid for 2010 and our growth plans remain intact. We expect 2010 will continue to be a growth year for FUQI as we place a greater emphasis on retail growth, maximizing our consolidated gross margin and minimizing operating expenses."

The Company is progressing with its 2009 year end analysis and intends to report its full year 2009 financial results as soon as practicable under the circumstances. The Company received a notification letter on April 1, 2010 from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the Company is no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of SEC periodic reports, including the Company's 2009 Form 10-K filing. The Nasdaq notification letter has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.

As provided under Nasdaq rules, the Company has 60 calendar days from the date of the Nasdaq notification letter, or until June 1, 2010, to provide Nasdaq with a plan to regain compliance with the continued listing requirement. The Company intends to file its 2009 Form 10-K in the coming weeks, including the restatement impact of the first three quarters of 2009, and therefore believes that it will be in compliance with Nasdaq listing rules well before June 1, 2010.

Mr. Chong continued, "Currently, we are aware of the number of class action claims filed against the Company. We are taking appropriate actions to address these claims and we intend to defend such claims with guidance from our experienced legal counsel. Lastly, I'd like to emphasize that I still own my entire FUQI stock position since the Company went public in 2007 as I firmly believe in the Company's ability to become one of the largest jewelry enterprises in China and that its full value has yet to be fully recognized. We thank you for continued support and look forward to discussing our 2010 outlook and development plans in greater detail in our upcoming Q4 Earnings Conference Call to be scheduled as soon as possible."
