Kopin Corporation Announces Filing of 2016 10-K, Third Quarter 2016 10-Q


Company Now Current with SEC Filings and Compliant with NASDAQ
Listing Requirements

Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ:KOPN),
a leading developer of innovative wearable computing technologies and
solutions, announced the filing on March 23, 2017 with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the Company’s Form 10-Q for
the three months ended September 24, 2016 and the Company’s Annual
Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year 2016.

Following these filings, the Company is now current with all of its SEC
filings and has been informed by the Nasdaq Stock Market that Kopin has
regained compliance with the Nasdaq listing requirement relating to SEC
filing obligations.

As previously disclosed, the Company discovered embezzlement activities
at its Korean subsidiary. Based upon the results of forensic
investigation procedures, the actions of a former employee of its Korean
subsidiary resulted in a total theft loss of $1,589,000 over a 5 year
period and resulted in the immaterial restatement of previously issued
financial statements and unaudited quarterly financial information in
the Company’s 2016 annual report on Form 10-K. The Company is
undertaking steps to recover some or all of this amount, including
restitution from the former employee, the former employee’s family and a
claim on insurance Kopin carries against employee fraud.
