NEW CASTLE, Pa., Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Axion Power International, Inc. (Nasdaq: AXPW), or "The Company," announced that it plans to voluntarily delist from Nasdaq on the earliest date in compliance with the 10-day notice period to Nasdaq, and filing of its Form 25 with the SEC.

The Company is seeking delisting due to the costs and compliance requirements of a Nasdaq listing, such as meeting listing requirements and certain additional approval requirements for issuance of additional securities.   Furthermore, the Company has become aware that it is not in compliance with the continued listing requirement set forth in Rule 5550(a)(2) as the bid price for the Company's common stock has closed below $1.00 for the past consecutive 30 days.  The Company has no plans to seek shareholder approval for a further reverse split of its Common Stock, thus it could not assure ability to achieve compliance within the time periods proscribed.
