HAUPPAUGE, NY – November 23, 2009 - Hauppauge Digital Inc. (NASDAQ: HAUP) reported today that on November 18, 2009 it received a letter from NASDAQ indicating that the company is not in compliance with the NASDAQ minimum bid price rule.  The letter noted that, for the thirty consecutive trading days prior to November 18, 2009, the company's minimum closing bid price per share had been below the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement set forth in NASDAQ Rule 5450(a)(1).  In accordance with NASDAQ Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), Hauppauge has 180 days, or until May 17, 2010, to regain compliance.  In its notice, NASDAQ indicated that, if at any time during this period the minimum closing bid price is $1.00 or more per share for at least ten consecutive trading days, NASDAQ will provide confirmation that the company has regained compliance.

The company intends to monitor the bid price for its common stock between now and May 17, 2010 and to consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the NASDAQ minimum bid price requirement, as to which no assurances can be given.

As previously disclosed, on October 6, 2009 the company received a Staff Determination letter from NASDAQ, notifying the company that NASDAQ had determined to initiate procedures to delist the company’s securities from NASDAQ based on the company’s failure to hold its annual meeting within the time frame allowed under NASDAQ Rule 5620.  The Company requested before a NASDAQ Hearings Panel that, pursuant to Rule 5815(c)(1)(A), the Company be granted an exception to the relevant continued listing standards set forth in Rule 5620, and that NASDAQ continue to list the company’s securities.  There can be no assurance that the Hearings Panel will grant the company’s request for continued listing.
