Koss Plans Move to NASDAQ Capital Market

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2014) - Koss Corporation (NASDAQ: KOSS), the U.S. based high-fidelity headphone company, plans to apply to move from the NASDAQ Global Market to the NASDAQ Capital Market. Management believes that the Capital Market is more suited to smaller reporting companies such as Koss, and that by transferring, the Company could save additional costs in the future and would immediately satisfy the minimum Capital Market listing requirements.

On October 20, 2014, Koss received a notice from NASDAQ stating that the Company had not met the NASDAQ Global Market listing requirement of maintaining a minimum market value of publicly held shares of $5,000,000 for the past 30 consecutive business days. As provided in the NASDAQ rules, the Company has 180 calendar days, or until April 20, 2015, to regain compliance with this requirement. NASDAQ noted that instead of continuing to comply with the Global Market listing requirements, the Company may apply to transfer its securities to the NASDAQ's Capital Market.

Management intends to apply to NASDAQ to transfer to the Capital Market during the current fiscal quarter, and estimates that the transfer could be effective as early as 10 business days from the date of application. Management believes that the transition will not impact the Company's reporting obligations with the Securities and Exchange Commission under applicable federal securities laws.

Koss Corporation markets a complete line of high-fidelity headphones, speaker-phones, computer headsets, telecommunications headsets, active noise canceling headphones, wireless headphones, and compact disc recordings of American Symphony Orchestras on the Koss Classics label.
