("LDK Solar") (NYSE: LDK), a leading vertically integrated manufacturer of photovoltaic products, today announced that, based upon a notice received on January 3, 2013 from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE), we are once again in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirement of a minimum average closing price of $1.00 per share over a consecutive 30-trading-day period.

At the close of trading on December 31, 2012, our average closing price of our common stock for the previous 30 trading days was above $1.00 per share. Accordingly, we have resumed compliance with all NYSE continued listing requirements.
