Kopin Receives Stay of Delisting from NASDAQ Pending Outcome of July 17 Hearing

05/29/2008

TAUNTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 29, 2008--Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN) today announced that it has appealed the Nasdaq Listing Qualification Staff's previously disclosed determination to delist the Company's securities from The Nasdaq Stock Market for failure to comply with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14). As a result of the appeal, the Nasdaq Staff's delisting action has been stayed pending the final outcome of a hearing scheduled for Thursday, July 17 before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel.

On May 19, Kopin announced that it had received a NASDAQ Staff Determination Letter indicating that the Company faced a possible delisting because it did not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 29, 2008. Kopin's Form 10-Q was delayed pending the Company's review of a Request for Mediation made by a customer of the Company.

At the July 17 hearing, Kopin must demonstrate its ability to regain compliance with the particular deficiencies cited by Nasdaq Staff, as well as its ability to sustain long-term compliance with all applicable maintenance criteria.
