Bioanalytical Systems, Inc. Receives Notice of Non-Compliance With NASDAQ Rules

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 14, 2006 -- Bioanalytical Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BASI) announced today that it notified Nasdaq on September 12, 2006 that the Company failed to comply with filing requirements for continued listing set forth in Marketplace Rule 4350(d)(2)(A), which requires the Company's Audit Committee to have at least three members. As a result of the resignation of Gayl Doster from the Company's Board of Directors and Audit Committee, the Audit Committee was composed of only two members. The Company received a Nasdaq Staff Determination dated September 13, 2006 confirming that it has received the Company's notification and that, consistent with Marketplace Rule 4350(d)(4), the Company would be given until the earlier of the Company's next annual shareholders' meeting (which is expected to be held in February 2007), or September 7, 2007, to cure this noncompliance and avoid delisting. Today, the Company elected Dr. David Crabb to serve on the Audit Committee. The Company intends to submit to Nasdaq the required documentation to demonstrate to Nasdaq that it has regained compliance with Marketplace Rule 4350(d)(2)(A).
