Koss Submits Compliance Plan to Nasdaq

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - Koss Corporation (NASDAQ: KOSS) today announced that it has submitted to Nasdaq its plan to achieve and sustain compliance with Listing Rule 5450(b)(1)(B) pursuant to a potential two-for-one forward stock split. The plan will be reviewed by Nasdaq and, if deemed to be acceptable, Koss would be granted up to 105 calendar days from the date of Nasdaq's notice to Koss that it was out of compliance, to evidence compliance.

Koss believes that a two-for-one forward stock split would increase the number of its publicly held shares sufficiently to comply with the listing rule. There can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept Koss's plan or that Koss's stock will be split. If the plan is not accepted, Koss will be permitted to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel.

On September 16, 2009, Koss announced that it had received a notice from Nasdaq indicating that it no longer meets the minimum 750,000 publicly held shares requirement for The Nasdaq Global Market under Listing Rule 5450(b)(1)(B). If Koss is unsuccessful in maintaining its Nasdaq listing, then Koss may pursue listing and trading of Koss's common stock on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board or another securities exchange or association with different listing standards than Nasdaq.

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