Cereplast, Inc. Moves to Up-list Shares to Trade on a Senior Securities Exchange

Press Release Source: Cereplast, Inc. On Friday January 8, 2010, 7:00 am EST

HAWTHORNE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cereplast, Inc. (OTCBB: CERP - News), a leading manufacturer of proprietary bio-based, sustainable plastics, announced today that it is taking steps to list its shares on a senior securities exchange.

In a set of moves intended to position the Company to file an application to list on either the American Stock Exchange or NASDAQ, the company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation to implement a 1-for-40 reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock, appointed an additional independent director, Mr. Steve Hanni to its Board of Directors, and engaged New York City-based securities law firm Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP (‘SRFF’) to act as legal counsel.

According to Mr. Frederic Scheer, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast, Inc., engaging the law firm was a critical step in this process. “Sichenzia, Ross, Friedman, Ference is an extremely experienced securities firm that brings the particular skill set our Company needs at this moment. SRFF will assist us with our application to a senior securities exchange. The firm has successfully shepherded several companies through the process of listing their shares on senior exchanges such as NASDAQ and the American Stock Exchange.”

Mr. Scheer added, “We have witnessed several cases recently where shareholder value appreciated significantly due to solid business developments coupled with the up-listing of a company’s shares. Adding Steve Hanni, a licensed Certified Public Accountant, to our Board, with his experience in public company accounting and tenure on the audit committee of a NASDAQ listed company, will be very beneficial to us over the coming months and years.”

Mr. Gregory Sichenzia Esq., Senior Partner at Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, added, “Cereplast is a strong candidate for the up-listing of its shares. We are proud to represent 'green' companies, like Cereplast as they seek listings on national exchanges, such as on NASDAQ."

The Company believes that consumers are continuing to turn to ‘green’ packaging alternatives. It is estimated that global demand for bio-plastics, including plastic resins that are biodegradable or derived from plant-based sources, will increase by 400% to 890,000 metric tons by 2013, according to a recent University of Utrecht study. Some predict the U.S. market to reach $10 billion a year by 2020, a tenfold increase from 2007, according to a recent article by CNN International.

“Cereplast is a leader in the bio-plastics resin market,” continued Mr. Scheer. “As a leading company in this space, the Management and the Board of Cereplast feel strongly that the Company’s shares will be better represented on a more senior exchange. We have significantly streamlined our operations, reduced costs and recently closed a private placement to accredited and institutional investors. Taking all of this into account, we are confident that the Company is now in a position to grow our business substantially in 2010.”
