(NASDAQ: LPTH) (“LightPath,” the “Company” or “we”), a leading vertically integrated global manufacturer and distributor of proprietary optical components and high-level assemblies, today announced it has received notification from The NASDAQ Listing Qualifications department of The NASDAQ Stock Market, LLC that the Company has regained compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, as required by NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Listing Rule”).
As previously disclosed, on January 15, 2013, The NASDAQ Listing Qualifications department notified the Company that for the past 30 consecutive business days, the closing bid price per share of the Company’s common stock was below the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement and, as a result, the Company was not in compliance with the Listing Rule.

On June 13, 2013, the Company received notification from The NASDAQ Listing Qualifications department that it had regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under the Listing Rule after the Company’s common stock attained a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for ten consecutive business days and that the matter is now closed. During the ten consecutive business day period, from May 30, 2013 to June 12, 2013, the closing bid price per share of our common stock ranged from $1.03 to $1.45.
