DENVER, COLORADO – July 2, 2014 – BIOFUEL ENERGY CORP. (NASDAQ:BIOF) (the “Company”) today announced it has received a written decision from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Nasdaq Listings Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”) has determined to grant the Company’s request for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, provided that (1) on or before November 4, 2014, the Company closes the previously announced acquisition of the equity interests of JBGL Builder Finance LLC and certain subsidiaries of JBGL Capital, LP, from certain affiliates of Greenlight Capital, Inc. and James R. Brickman and (2) the resulting combined company satisfies all requirements for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market upon consummation of the transaction.
The Company is diligently working to complete the acquisition and the related transactions, including the preparation of a Nasdaq listing application for the combined company, within the time period afforded by the Panel; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to do so. The Panel’s determination follows the Company’s hearing before the Panel on June 12, 2014, at which the Panel considered the Company’s appeal of the determination by the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Staff to delist the Company’s securities.
