C&D Technologies Receives Notice Regarding NYSE Listing

BLUE BELL, Pa., July 20, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- C&D Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: CHP - News), a leading North American producer and marketer of electrical power storage and conversion systems used in telecommunications, uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems, utility and other high reliability applications, announced today that the Company received notification from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that the Company has fallen below the continued listing standard which requires a minimum average closing price of $1.00 per common share over thirty consecutive trading days.

Under NYSE rules, the Company has a period of six months following receipt of the notification to bring its average common share price above $1.00 per share for thirty consecutive trading days in order to avoid delisting of its common shares on the NYSE. The Company's common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE during this six month interim period, subject to compliance with other NYSE continued listing requirements and the NYSE's right to reevaluate continued listing determinations. The Company plans to notify the NYSE that it intends to cure this deficiency in accordance with the NYSE rules.
