(NYSE: BAS) ("Basic" or the "Company") announced today that the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") has accepted the Company's plan for continued listing on the NYSE. As a result, Basic's common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE, subject to quarterly reviews by the NYSE to monitor the Company's progress against the plan to restore compliance with continued listing standards.

Should the Company's average global market capitalization over a consecutive 30 trading-day period fall below $15 million, the NYSE will promptly initiate suspension and delisting procedures.
