Share:

On August 15, 2018, Amira Nature Foods Ltd. (the "Company"), a British
Virgin Islands business company, announced that as of August 16, 2018,
it will not be in compliance of the continued listing requirements under
the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE
Listed Company Manual of the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") because
its report on Form 20-F for the year ended March 31, 2018 will not be
timely filed.

The delay is the result of the Company's independent auditors, ASA &
Associates LLP ("ASA") requiring additional time to complete its audit
procedures and confirmations. The Company intends to file its Form 20-F
as soon as practicable after ASA completes its review. The Company
remains confident in the veracity of its fully audited historical
results and is committed to working with ASA, to complete the filing of
its Annual Report on Form 20-F as soon as practicable.

In accordance with NYSE rules, the Company has contacted the NYSE to
discuss the status of the late filing and issued the NYSE's required
press release. Under NYSE rules, the Company has six months to comply
with the NYSE listing standards. It can regain compliance at any time
during this six-month period by filing the Form 20-F. In the interim,
the Company's shares will continue to be listed on the NYSE, subject to
compliance with other continued listing requirements.

The NYSE notification has no impact on the Company's business operations.
