Minneapolis, Minnesota - January 26, 2005 - Kuhlman Company, Inc. (AMEX:KUL), a provider of European-inspired, tailored clothing for men and women, today reported that on September 26, 2006, the Company received notice from the American Stock Exchange (“AMEX”) that the Company was not in compliance with certain of AMEX’s continued listing requirements. Specifically, the Company was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(ii) of the AMEX Company Guide, the AMEX shareholder equity requirement of shareholder’s equity of less than $4,000,000 and/or net losses in three out of four most recent fiscal years, as well as with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the AMEX Company Guide because, in the opinion of AMEX, the Company’s financial condition is impaired and it appears questionable, in the opinion of AMEX, as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature. The Company intends to submit a plan to AMEX by October 26, 2006 advising AMEX what action it has taken, or will take, that would bring the Company into compliance.
