MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) - FONAR Corporation (NASDAQ: FONR), The Inventor of MR Scanning(TM), today announced that on October 14, 2010, the Company received a notice of non-compliance from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC based upon the Company's non-compliance with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement of $2.5 million for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, as set forth in NASDAQ Marketplace Listing Rule 5550(b)(1)(the "Rule") (the "Stockholders' Equity Requirement"). The deficiency was noted after the Company filed its Form 10-K on October 13, 2010, for the Fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. In addition, the Company did not meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations.

Under the Rules, the Company has 45 calendar days to submit a plan to regain compliance. If the plan is accepted the NASDAQ Panel will grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the date of the letter (October 14, 2010) to evidence compliance. While the Company is hopeful that the Panel will grant its request for continued listing on NASDAQ, there can be no assurance that the Panel will do so.
