(Scottsdale, AZ – June 19, 2006) – Alanco Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALAN), developer of the TSI PRISM RFID officer safety and inmate tracking system for the corrections industry, today announced that it had received a letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market dated June 16, 2006 indicating the Company had regained compliance with Nasdaq shareholder approval rules. The Company had previously been notified that a private placement completed on May 4, 2006 of 820,000 units, consisting of one share of common stock and a warrant to purchase one share of common stock to a trust beneficially owned by a Director of the Company, was in violation of shareholder approval rules set forth in Marketplace Rule 4350(i)(1)(A) (the “Rule”). The Company regained compliance with the Rule when the Director agreed on June 2, 2006 that “he will not exercise the Warrant unless and until the shareholders of Alanco have approved the issuance of the warrant at a special or annual shareholders meeting.” The Company intends to submit the issue for shareholder approval at the next shareholders meeting.
