Spherix Incorporated to Seek Stockholder Approval of Reverse Stock Split
Date:9/8/2008

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spherix Incorporated (Nasdaq: SPEX) announced that it will seek stockholder approval to implement a reverse stock split at a Special Meeting of Stockholders on November 17, 2008, in an effort to meet the minimum per share market price requirements for continued listing on the NASDAQ Global Market. The date for determining stockholders of record entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting is September 19, 2008.

A definitive proxy statement containing important stockholder information regarding the proposed reverse stock split will be mailed to all stockholders on or about September 26, 2008. Copies of the proxy statement will also be available at no charge from the Securities and Exchange Commission's website at http://www.sec.gov. Stockholders are urged to read the proxy statement prior to submitting their vote.

The Company believes that a reverse stock split, which should result in a higher per share price and a corresponding lower number of total shares issued and outstanding at the time of implementation, should help increase the marketability of its stock to a broader range of potential new investors and enable the Company to attain the minimum $1.00 per share bid price for its common stock.

The Company's Board of Directors is asking the stockholders to vote on and approve a proposal to effect a reverse split of the Company's common stock within a range of 1:5 to 1:20. The stockholders are being asked to grant authority to the Board of Directors to determine, in its discretion, the actual ratio of the reverse stock split immediately prior to the effective date of the reverse stock split, and when such reverse stock split should be implemented.

As of September 3, 2008, there were 14,357,162 shares of Spherix Incorporated common stock outstanding. The reverse stock split would affect all Spherix Incorporated common stock and stock options outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the reverse stock split, if approved.

Certain statements contained herein are "forward looking" statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Because such statements include risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied include, but are not limited to, those discussed in filings by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the filing on Form 8-K made on October 10, 2007.
