Comstock Resources, Inc: Continued Listing Plan Accepted by New York Stock Exchange


FRISCO, TEXAS, May 27, 2016 - Comstock Resources, Inc. ("Comstock" or the "Company") (NYSE: CRK) announced today that the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") has notified the Company that it has accepted Comstock's business plan for continued listing on the NYSE.

As a result of this acceptance, Comstock's common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE pending quarterly reviews by the NYSE's Listing and Compliance Committee to ensure the Company's progress towards its plan to restore compliance with all NYSE continued listing standards.

On March 30, 2016, the Company announced that the NYSE had notified Comstock that it was considered below certain continued listing standards established by the NYSE as a result of the Company's average stock price trading below $1.00 per share and its average market capitalization being less than $50 million, in each case over a consecutive 30 trading-day period, and its last reported stockholders' equity was less than $50 million.

"Comstock will continue to work proactively with the NYSE to maintain the listing of its common stock during the compliance period, and we look forward to executing our business plan and increasing our share price and market capitalization" stated Comstock's Chief Executive Officer, M. Jay Allison.
