FAIR LAWN, N.J., July 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Henry Bros. Electronics, Inc. (Amex: HBE), a turnkey provider of technology-based integrated electronic security solutions, today issued an update on the company's American Stock Exchange listing status and delayed 2006 Form 10-K filing.

Henry Bros. had previously disclosed that the failure to file its 2006 Form 10-K was caused by unreconciled balances in certain clearing accounts. At this time, those unreconciled balances appear to be approximately $1.1 million, of which approximately half of this amount has been identified and is in the process of being corrected. Identification of the remaining balance is continuing.

The company submitted a plan of compliance and supporting documentation to the American Stock Exchange on May 18th, 2007 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards no later than October 18th, 2007 . As of the date of this release, the company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards of the exchange. The failure to file a 10-Q for the March 2007 quarter triggered an additional delinquency. However, the company's listing is being continued pursuant to an extension granted by the Exchange until October 18th, 2007 , subject to the Exchange's right to commence delisting proceedings at any time.

Henry Bros. Electronics Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jim Henry stated, "We want our investors to understand the magnitude of the unreconciled difference that resulted in our untimely filing of the 2006 Form 10-K and the first quarter 10-Q, as well as the progress that our financial team has made toward solving this deficiency. We are making every effort to complete the necessary reconciliations required to return us to good standing with the Amex as soon as possible and are confident that we will be able to meet the October 18th deadline."
