Date:5/24/2011

BETHESDA, Md., May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spherix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SPEXD) – an innovator in biotechnology for therapy in diabetes, metabolic syndrome and atherosclerosis, and providers of technical and regulatory consulting services to food, supplement, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies – today announced that it has regained compliance with NASDAQ listing rule 5550(a)(2), which concerns minimum bid price listing requirements.

As previously announced, Spherix was notified by NASDAQ that its common stock failed to meet the minimum bid price; thus the Company was put on notice of a potential de-listing of its stock if it failed to regain compliance with the rule.  On May 24, 2011, NASDAQ provided confirmation to the Company that the closing bid price for the prior 10 business days had met the minimum bid price requirement; thus the Company has regained compliance and the de-listing matter with NASDAQ has been closed.
