LightPath Technologies Postpones Fiscal 2015 Financial Results Conference Call

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) - LightPath Technologies, Inc. ("LightPath," the "Company" or "we") (NASDAQ: LPTH), a leading vertically integrated global manufacturer, distributor and integrator of proprietary optical and infrared components and high-level assemblies, today announced that it is postponing the issuance of its fiscal 2015 financial results and the corresponding conference call and simultaneous webcast which had been scheduled for September 3, 2015. The postponement is due to a delay in the completion of the audit of financial statements by BDO USA, LLP ("BDO"), the Company's new independent public accountant for the year ended June 30, 2015.

As previously disclosed in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 5, 2015, the accounting practice of Cross, Fernandez & Riley LLP ("CFR"), the Company's previous independent public accountant, was combined with BDO USA, LLP ("BDO") in August 2015, with CFR's professional employees and partners joining BDO either as employees or partners. The delay in the completion of the audit is simply the result of an increased review cycle due to the recent combination of CFR and BDO. BDO is expected to complete the audit as soon as reasonably practicable, after which the Company will announce a revised schedule to report its year end results. The Company knows of no matters to be in contention and its results to be consistent with the results previously disclosed in its August 6, 2015 press release.
