PROXY STATEMENT

ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS

Thursday, May 24, 2012

The Company's annual meeting of shareholders will be held on Thursday, May 24, 2012 at the Company's principal executive offices located at 89 Arkay Drive, Hauppauge, New York 11788 at 10:30 a.m. (the "Annual

Meeting"). The Board of Directors is soliciting your proxy to vote your shares of common stock at the Annual

Meeting. This proxy statement, which was prepared by management for the Board of Directors, contains information about the matters to be considered at the meeting or any adjournments or postponements of the meeting and is first being made available to stockholders on or about April 9, 2012.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE AVAILABILITY OF PROXY MATERIALS FOR THE

ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS TO BE HELD MAY 24, 2012

This proxy statement and our 2011 Annual Report for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 are available on the Internet at http://www.edocumentview.com/VII.

ABOUT THE MEETING

What is the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials that I received in the mail this year instead of a full set of proxy materials?

The Company is pleased to be using the Securities and Exchange Commission rule that allows companies to furnish their proxy materials over the Internet, instead of mailing printed copies of those materials to all stockholders. Consequently, most Shareholders will not receive paper copies of our proxy materials. These

Shareholders will instead receive a "Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials" with instructions for accessing proxy materials, including the Company's proxy statement and 2011 Annual Report, and voting via the

Internet or by telephone. The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials also contains instructions on how

Shareholders can obtain a paper copy of our proxy materials if they so choose. We believe this process will expedite Shareholders' receipt of proxy materials, lower the costs of the Annual Meeting and conserve natural resources.

What is being considered at the meeting?

You will be voting on:

1.

The election of two directors for a term of three years; and

2.

The ratification of the appointment of BDO USA, LLP to serve as the Company's independent registered public accountants for fiscal year ending September 30, 2012.

In addition, management will report on the Company's performance during fiscal 2011 and respond to questions.

1

Who is entitled to vote at the meeting?

You may vote if you owned stock as of the close of business on March 30, 2012. Each share of stock is entitled to one vote.

How do I vote?

For Shareholders whose shares are registered in their own names, you may vote via the Internet, by telephone or, for those Shareholders who receive a paper proxy card in the mail, by mailing a completed proxy card.

For those Shareholders who receive a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, such notice provides information on how to access your proxy card that contains instructions on how to vote via the Internet or by telephone. Those Shareholders who receive a paper proxy card and voting instructions by mail should sign and return the mailed proxy card in the prepaid and addressed envelope that was enclosed with the proxy materials.

Those Shareholders who receive such paper proxy card may vote via the Internet or by telephone by following the instructions listed on the card.

If your shares are registered in the name of a bank or brokerage firm (your record holder), you may also submit your voting instructions over the Internet or by telephone by following the instructions provided by your record holder in the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. If you received printed copies of the proxy materials, you can submit voting instructions by the Internet, telephone or mail by following the instructions provided by your record holder on the enclosed voting instructions card. Those who elect to vote by mail should complete and return the voting instructions card in the prepaid and addressed envelope provided. Shareholders who have elected to receive the proxy materials electronically will be receiving an email on or about April 9, 2012 with information on how to access stockholder information and instructions for voting.

If your shares are registered in your own name, you have the right to vote in person at the Annual Meeting by using the ballot provided at the Annual Meeting, or if you requested and received printed copies of the proxy materials by mail, you can complete, sign and date the proxy card enclosed with the proxy materials you received and submit it at the Annual Meeting. If you hold shares through a bank or brokerage firm and wish to be able to vote in person at the Annual Meeting, you must obtain a "legal proxy" from your brokerage firm, bank or other holder of record and present it to the inspector of elections with your ballot at the Annual Meeting. Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we recommend that you submit your proxy or voting instructions in advance of the meeting as described above so that your vote will be counted if you later decide not to attend the Annual Meeting.

Submitting your proxy or voting instructions in advance of the meeting will not affect your right to vote in person should you decide to attend the Annual Meeting.

Can I change my mind after I return my proxy?

Yes, you may change your mind at any time before the vote is taken at the meeting. You may revoke or change a previously delivered proxy at any time before the Annual Meeting by delivering another proxy with a later date, by voting again via the Internet or by telephone, or by delivering written notice of revocation of your proxy to the Company's Secretary at our principal executive offices before the beginning of the Annual Meeting. You may also revoke your proxy by attending the Annual Meeting and voting in person, although attendance at the Annual

Meeting will not, in and of itself, revoke a valid proxy that was previously delivered. If you hold shares through a bank or brokerage firm, you must contact that bank or brokerage firm to revoke any prior voting instructions. You also may revoke any prior voting instructions by voting in person at the Annual Meeting if you obtain a legal proxy as described above.

What if I return my proxy card but do not include voting instructions?

Proxies that are signed and returned but do not include voting instructions will be voted FOR the election of the nominee directors, FOR the ratification of BDO USA, LLP to serve as the Company's independent registered public accountants and in the discretion of the proxy holders as to any other matters that may properly come before the Annual Meeting or any postponement or adjournment of the Annual Meeting.

2

What does it mean if I receive more than one notice or proxy card?

It means that you have multiple accounts with brokers and/or our transfer agent. Please vote all of these shares. We recommend that you contact your broker and/or our transfer agent to consolidate as many accounts as possible under the same name and address. The Company's transfer agent is Computershare and their telephone number is 1-800-962-4284.

Will my shares be voted if I do not provide my proxy?

If you hold your shares directly in your own name, they will not be voted if you do not provide a proxy.

Your shares may be voted under certain circumstances if they are held in the name of a brokerage firm.

Brokerage firms generally have the authority to vote customers' unvoted shares on certain "routine" matters, including the ratification of Accountants. At the Annual Meeting, these shares will be counted as voted by the brokerage firm in the ratification of Accountants.

Brokers are prohibited from exercising discretionary authority on non-routine matters, such as the election of directors, for beneficial owners who haven't returned proxies to the brokers (so-called "broker non-votes"). In the case of broker non-votes, and in cases where you abstain from voting on a matter when present and entitled to vote at the meeting, those shares will be counted for purposes of determining if a quorum is present.

How many votes must be present to hold the meeting?

In order to conduct the Annual Meeting, a majority of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock as of March 30, 2012 must be present at the meeting. This is referred to as a quorum. Your shares are counted as present at the meeting if you either: i) attend the meeting and vote in person, (ii) properly submit your proxy in your name or through your record holder or (iii) your shares are registered in the name of a bank or brokerage firm and you do not provide voting instructions and such bank or broker casts a broker non-vote on the ratification of accountants. In the event that there are insufficient votes for a quorum or to approve any proposal at the time of the

Annual Meeting, the Annual Meeting may be adjourned in order to permit the further solicitation of proxies. On

March 15, 2012, there were 4,473,810 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote.

What vote is required to elect directors?

Your proxy enables you to vote “FOR” the election of the nominees proposed by the Board of Directors or to “WITHHOLD” authority to vote for the nominees being proposed. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast, without regard to either: (i) broker non-votes or (ii) proxies to the extent they withhold authority to vote for one or more of the nominees being proposed.

What vote is required to ratify the appointment of BDO USA, LLP as the Company's independent registered public accountants?

Your proxy enables you to vote “FOR” or “AGAINST” the ratification of independent registered public accountants or “ABSTAIN” with regard to such ratification. The ratification of independent registered public accountants shall be determined by a majority of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively, without regard to either:

(i) broker non-votes or (ii) proxies marked “ABSTAIN” as to the proposal.

PROPOSALS TO BE VOTED ON AT THE ANNUAL MEETING

PROPOSAL 1. ELECTION OF TWO DIRECTORS

The Board of Directors is currently comprised of six directors. One director, Mr. Peter F. Neumann, a member of the Board since 1987, will not stand for re-election after the expiration of his term at the start of the 2012

Annual Meeting, and the Board has reduced the number of Board members to five effective at the start of the 2012

Annual Meeting. The Board will thereafter be comprised of one director whose term expires in 2013, two directors

3

whose terms expire in 2014, and two directors to be elected for a term expiring in 2015. Directors elected by the shareholders serve for a term of three years or until their successors are elected and qualified.

The nominees proposed for election at the Annual Meeting to a term expiring in 2015 are Mr. Bernard F.

Reynolds and Mr. Julian A. Tiedemann. In May 2011, the Board had expanded the size of the Board to six members and appointed Mr. Tiedemann to fill the resulting vacancy. He had been recommended to the Board by Anita G.

Zucker as Trustee of the Article 6 Marital Trust, which has owned approximately 10.7% of the Company's common stock since March 15, 2011.

In the event that these nominees are unable or decline to serve for any reason, the Board may appoint a replacement to fill the vacancy. The Board has no reason to believe that the persons named will be unable or unwilling to serve. No person being nominated as a director is being proposed for election pursuant to any agreement or understanding between any person and the Company.

Unless authority to vote for the nominees is withheld, it is intended that the shares represented by the enclosed proxy will be voted FOR the nominees named in the Proxy Statement.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR THE ELECTION OF THE

NOMINEES NAMED IN THIS PROXY STATEMENT

THE ROLE OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

General

The Board of Directors has the responsibility for establishing broad corporate policies and for the overall performance of the Company. Outside members of the Board are kept informed of the Company's business through various reports and documents sent to them, as well as through operating and financial reports made at Board and committee meetings by Mr. Darby and other officers.

Board Leadership Structure

The Board of Directors has appointed the Company's Chief Executive Officer to serve as Chairman of the

Board. In his position as CEO, Mr. Darby has primary responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the Company and provides consistent leadership on the Company's key strategic objectives. In his role as Chairman of the Board, he sets the strategic priorities for the Board of Directors, presides over its meetings and communicates its strategic findings and guidance to management. The Board believes that the combination of these two roles provides more consistent communication and coordination throughout the organization, which results in a more effective and efficient implementation of corporate strategy and is important in unifying the Company's strategy behind a single vision.

In addition, the Company has found that its CEO is the most knowledgeable member of its Board of

Directors regarding risks it may be facing and is best able to facilitate the Board's oversight of such risks in his role as its Chairman. However, no single leadership model is right for all companies at all times, and the Company has no bylaw or policy in place that mandates that the CEO serve as the Chairman of the Board. The Board recognizes that other leadership models such as a separate independent Chairman of the Board might be appropriate depending on the circumstances. Accordingly, the Board of Directors periodically evaluates its leadership structure to ensure that it remains the optimal structure for the Company and its stockholders.

The Company has not found it necessary to appoint a lead independent director due principally to the limited size of the Board, the long tenure of its members and the fact that all Board Committees are comprised of independent directors. The Company's Board is comfortable that its existing leadership structure provides for an appropriate balance that best serves the Company and its stockholders.

Board Oversight of Risk

The Board of Directors recognizes that although risk management is primarily the responsibility of the

Company's management team, the Board plays a critical role in the oversight of risk. The Board believes that an important part of its responsibilities is to assess the major risks which the Company faces and review the Company's options for monitoring and controlling these risks. The Board has delegated responsibility for the Company's overall risk assessment and risk management policies to the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee also has specific responsibility for oversight of risks associated with financial accounting and audits, internal control over financial reporting and the Company's major financial risk exposures. The Compensation Committee oversees the risks relating to the Company's compensation policies and practices, as well as management development and leadership succession in the Company. The Board of Directors as a whole examines specific business risks in its periodic reviews of the individual business units and also on a company-wide basis as part of its regular reviews.

Outside of formal meetings, the Board and its committees have regular access to senior executives, including the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. The Board believes that this structure allows it to maintain effective oversight over the Company's risks and ensures that management personnel are following prudent and appropriate risk management practices.

6

Board Composition

The Company's Board of Directors is comprised of individuals with diverse experience at policy-making levels in a variety of industries and businesses in areas that are relevant to the Company's activities. Each director was nominated on the basis of the unique experience, qualifications, attributes and skills that he brings to the board, as well as how those factors blend with those of the others on the Board as a whole. On an individual basis:

Mr. Darby brings extensive knowledge of the Company and industry experience having joined the

Company in 1978 and having served in various executive capacities prior to becoming Chairman of the

Board and Chief Executive Officer in 1992.

Mr. Neumann has significant general business experience and knowledge of insurance and other financial products having served as the President of his own insurance brokerage firm. Mr. Neumann also brings experience and insight to the Board with respect to regulated industries and risk mitigation.

Mr. Reynolds has extensive business knowledge having served as the President of a division of a global risk management services, insurance brokerage and human resources management consulting company. Prior to that, Mr. Reynolds served as the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of a publicly listed human resources outsourcing company, which he founded in 1978. Mr. Reynolds brings general business experience and a particular knowledge of human resources and compensation matters.

Mr. Robertson has extensive experience in investment banking and public finance having served as

President and now Chairman of a financial services company which he founded in 1989. Mr. Robertson has worked with a diverse group of both publicly listed and private companies in merger, acquisition, divestiture and finance transactions. Mr. Robertson provides valuable insight into the stockholder's perspective on value creation and strategic decisions.

Mr. Roche brings extensive Company knowledge and financial experience having served as the Company's

Executive Vice President from 1993 through 1999 and formerly serving as a partner with an international public accounting firm. Mr. Roche brings particular insight to the Board based on his former management responsibilities and provides strategic planning and financial oversight.

Mr. Tiedemann brings extensive knowledge and experience in operating and administration matters having served as Chief Operating Officer of a diverse group of global companies and having previously served as a director of a multi-billion dollar retailer.

MEETINGS OF THE BOARD AND COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD

The Board of Directors has a number of committees including the Executive Committee, the Compensation

Committee, the Audit Committee and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. All independent directors are members of each of the Committees.

The Executive Committee is chaired by Mr. Darby and meets in special situations when the full Board cannot be convened. The Committee did not meet during the last fiscal year.

The Compensation Committee consists of Messrs. Neumann (Chairman), Reynolds, Robertson, Roche and

Tiedemann, all of whom are non-employee directors. The function of the Compensation Committee is to establish and approve the appropriate compensation for Mr. Darby, recommend to the Board the award of stock options, and to review and approve the recommendations of Mr. Darby with respect to the compensation of all other officers. A copy of the Compensation Committee Charter is available on the Company's website at http://www.viconsecurity.com. The Committee met twice during the last fiscal year.

The Audit Committee consists of Messrs. Roche (Chairman), Neumann, Reynolds, Robertson and

Tiedemann, each of whom is an “independent director” as defined by NYSE Amex Listing Standards. The primary function of the Audit Committee is to assist the Board of Directors in fulfilling its responsibility to oversee

7

management's conduct of the Company's financial reporting process, including review of the financial reports and other financial information of the Company, the Company's system of internal accounting controls, the Company's compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and the qualifications, independence and performance of the

Company's independent registered public accountants. The Audit Committee has sole authority to appoint, retain, compensate, evaluate and terminate the independent registered public accountants. The Board has determined that

Mr. Roche is an “Audit Committee financial expert” under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Audit Committee will periodically review the Audit Committee Charter in light of new developments in applicable regulations and may make additional recommendations to the Board of Directors for further revision of the Audit Committee Charter to reflect evolving best practices. A copy of the Audit Committee Charter is available on the Company's website at http://www.vicon-security.com. The Committee met four times during the last fiscal year.

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee (the "Committee") consists of Messrs. Roche

(Chairman), Neumann, Reynolds, Robertson and Tiedemann. The primary function of the Committee is to recommend individuals qualified to serve as directors and on committees of the Board; to advise the Board with respect to Board composition, procedures and committees; to evaluate the overall Board and Committee effectiveness and to evaluate and monitor the Company's corporate governance policies and programs. All director candidates, including those recommended by stockholders, are evaluated on the same basis. In its evaluation of director candidates, the Committee considers a variety of characteristics, including, but not limited to, core competencies, experience, independence, level of commitment, Board and company needs and considerations, and personal characteristics. The Committee may engage a third party to assist it in identifying potential director nominees. The Committee has generally identified nominees based upon recommendations from existing directors and will consider candidates recommended by stockholders if submitted to the Committee in writing and complying with shareholder proposal requirements outlined elsewhere in this proxy statement. The Committee does not have a specific policy with regard to the consideration of diversity in identifying director nominees. The Committee also makes recommendations to the Board on changes to the Company's corporate governance principles based upon emerging governance trends. The Board of Directors has determined that each member of the Committee meets the definition of an “independent director” as defined by NYSE Amex Listing Standards. A copy of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee Charter is available on the Company's website at http://www.viconsecurity.com. The Committee did not have any formal meetings last fiscal year.

The Board of Directors held ten meetings in the Company's 2011 fiscal year, including all regularly scheduled and annual meetings. No Board member attended fewer than 75% of the aggregate of (1) the total number of meetings of the Board (held during the period for which he was a director) and (2) the total number of meetings held by all committees on which he served (during the periods that he served). The prior year annual meeting was attended by all of the current directors.

The non-employee directors are each compensated at the rate of $22,400 per year retainer and $1,600 per

Committee meeting attended in person or by teleconference. The Chairman of the Audit Committee receives an additional annual retainer of $8,000. Employee directors are not compensated for Board or committee meetings.

Directors may not stand for re-election after 70, except that any director may serve additional three-year terms after age 70 with the unanimous consent of the Board of Directors.

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

The Company and CBC Co., Ltd. (CBC), a Japanese corporation which beneficially owns 11.5% of the outstanding shares of the Company, have been conducting business with each other since 1979. During this period,

CBC has served as a lender, a product supplier and a private label reseller of the Company's products. In fiscal 2011, the Company purchased approximately $911,000 of products from or through CBC. CBC competes with the

Company in various markets, principally in the sale of video products and systems. Sales of Vicon products to CBC were $9,000 in 2011.

To date, the Company has not adopted a formal written policy with respect to related party transactions.

However, an informal unwritten policy has been in place whereby all such related-party transactions are reported to,

8

and approved by, the full Board of Directors (other than any interested director). Given the SEC's reporting requirements, the Board of Directors is considering whether to adopt a formal written policy with respect to relatedparty transactions.

All named directors other than Mr. Darby are independent directors in accordance with the NYSE Amex

Company Guide.

Code of Ethics and Business Conduct

The Company has adopted a Code of Ethics and Business Conduct that applies to all its employees, including its chief executive officer, chief financial and accounting officer, controller, and any persons performing similar functions. Such Code of Ethics and Business Conduct is published on the Company's internet website

(http://www.vicon-security.com).

Ability of Stockholders to Communicate with the Board of Directors

Shareholders may contact the Board of Directors by sending a written communication addressed to the

Board of Directors in care of the Secretary of the Company at Vicon Industries, Inc., 89 Arkay Drive, Hauppauge,

NY 11788. The Company's Corporate Secretary will relay all such communications to the Board of Directors, or individual members, as appropriate.

Report of the Audit Committee

The Audit Committee reviews the Company's financial reporting process on behalf of the Board of

Directors. Management has the primary responsibility for the financial statements and the reporting process, including the systems of internal control.

In fulfilling its oversight responsibilities, the Committee reviewed and discussed with management the audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 Additionally, the

Committee has reviewed and discussed with management and the independent registered public accountants the

Company's unaudited interim financial statements as of and for the end of each fiscal quarter. Such discussions occur prior to issuance of news releases reporting quarterly results.

The Committee has discussed with the independent registered public accountants the matters required to be discussed by the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 61, as amended (AICPA, Professional Standards, Vol. 1. AU section 380), as adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Rule 3200T.

The Committee has received the written disclosures and the letter from the independent registered public accountants required by applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding the independent accountants' communications with the audit committee concerning independence, and has discussed with the independent accountants the independent accountants' independence.

Based on the reviews and discussions referred to above, the Committee recommends to the Board of

Directors that the audited fiscal year-end financial statements referred to above be included in the Company's

Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

Compensation Philosophy and Objectives of Our Compensation Program

The Company's compensation programs are intended to enable it to attract, motivate, reward and retain the management talent required to achieve corporate objectives, and thereby increase stockholder value. It is the Company's policy to provide incentives to senior management to achieve both short-term and long-term objectives and to reward exceptional performance and contributions to the development of the business. To attain these objectives, the executive compensation program includes four key components:

Base Salary. Base salary for the Company's executives is intended to provide competitive remuneration for services provided to the Company over a one-year period. Base salaries are set at levels designed to attract and retain the most appropriately qualified individuals for each of the key management level positions within the Company.

Cash Incentive Bonuses. The Company's bonus programs are intended to reward executive officers for the achievement of various annual performance goals approved by the Company's Board of Directors. For fiscal 2011, a performance based bonus plan was established for certain of the Company's executive officers, including among others Kenneth M. Darby, Chief Executive Officer and John M. Badke, Chief Financial Officer, whereby the participants would share a specified bonus pool of between $300,000 for the achievement of annual consolidated sales and pretax loss targets of $53 million and $1 million, respectively, and $500,000 for the achievement of annual consolidated sales and pretax loss targets of $56 million (and above) and $250,000 (and below), respectively. Messrs. Darby and Badke earned no bonuses under such plan for fiscal 2011. In addition, a performance based bonus plan was established for

Bret M. McGowan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing (Americas), whereby he would earn an amount up to $95,000 for the achievement of certain annual U.S. and export sales targets. Mr. McGowan earned no bonus under such plan for fiscal 2011. However, Messrs. Darby, Badke and McGowan were granted discretionary bonuses of $15,000, $10,000 and $10,000, respectively for fiscal 2011. Such bonuses were approved by the Company's Board of Directors upon the recommendation of its Compensation Committee.

For fiscal 2010, the Company had no formal bonus plan for its named executive officers other than for Mr.

McGowan. A performance based bonus plan was established for Mr. McGowan whereby he would earn commissions for the achievement of certain quarterly and annual U.S. sales targets. Mr. McGowan earned no commissions under such plan for fiscal 2010.

Equity-based Compensation. Equity-based compensation is designed to provide incentives to the

Company's executive officers to build shareholder value over the long term by aligning their interests with the interest of shareholders. The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors believes that equity-based compensation provides an incentive that focuses the executive's attention on managing the company from the perspective of an owner with an equity stake in the business. Among our executive officers, the number of shares of stock awarded or common stock subject to options granted to each individual generally depends upon the level of that officer's responsibility. The largest grants are generally awarded to the most senior officers who, in the view of the Compensation Committee, have the greatest potential impact on the Company's profitability and growth. Previous grants of stock options or stock grants are reviewed in determining the size of any executive's award in a particular year.

In March 2007, the Board of Directors adopted the Company's 2007 Stock Incentive Plan, which was approved by the Company's stockholders at its Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 18, 2007. Under such plan, a total of 500,000 shares of Common Stock were reserved for issuance and include the grant of stock options, restricted stock

12

and other stock awards as determined by the Compensation Committee. The purpose of the Stock Incentive Plan is to attract and retain executive management by providing them with appropriate equity-based incentives and rewards for superior performance and to provide incentive to a broader range of employees. In fiscal 2011, the Compensation

Committee awarded a total of 29,000 stock options to named executive officers, including 15,000 to Mr. Darby, 7,000 to Mr. Badke and 7,000 to Mr. McGowan.

Retirement, Health and Welfare Benefits and Other Perquisites. The Company's executive officers are entitled to a specified retirement/severance benefit pursuant to employment agreements as detailed below.

In addition, the executive officers are entitled to participate in all of the Company's employee benefit plans, including medical, dental, group life, disability, accidental death and dismemberment insurance and the Company's sponsored 401(k). The Company also provides its Chief Executive Officer with a country club membership and certain additional insurances not covered by primary insurance plans available to other employees and the Company's named executive officers are provided either a leased car or auto allowance.

Employment Agreements

The Company has entered into employment agreements with certain of its named executive officers that provide certain benefits upon termination of employment or change in control of the Company without Board of Director approval. All such agreements provide the named executive officer with a payment of three times their average annual compensation for the previous five year period if there is a change in control of the Company without Board of Director approval, as defined. Such payment can be taken in a present value lump sum or equal installments over a three year period. The agreements also provide the named executive officers with certain severance/retirement benefits upon certain occurrences including termination of employment without cause as defined, termination of employment due to the Company's breach of specified employment conditions (good reason termination), death, disability or retirement at a specified age. Such severance/retirement benefit provisions survive the expiration of the agreements and include a fixed stated benefit of $350,000 for Mr. Badke and $290,000 for Mr. McGowan. In addition, Mr. Badke receives an additional deferred compensation benefit upon such employment termination occurrences in the form of 6,561 shares of the Company's common stock.

Equity Compensation Grants Not Approved by Security Holders

Through September 30, 2011 the Company had granted certain of its officers with deferred compensation benefits aggregating 16,320 shares of common stock currently held by the Company in treasury. Such shares vest upon retirement. All shares vest earlier under certain occurrences including death, involuntary termination or a change in control of the Company.

Report of the Compensation Committee

The Compensation Committee's compensation policies applicable to the Company's officers for 2011 were to pay a competitive market price for the services of such officers, taking into account the overall performance and financial capabilities of the Company and the officer's individual level of performance.

Mr. Darby makes recommendations to the Compensation Committee as to the base salary and incentive compensation of all officers other than himself. The Committee reviews these recommendations with Mr. Darby and, after such review, determines compensation. In the case of Mr. Darby, the Compensation Committee makes its determination after direct negotiation with him. For each officer, the Committee's determinations are based on its conclusions concerning each officer's performance and comparable compensation levels for similarly situated officers at comparable companies. The overall level of performance of the Company is taken into account but is not specifically related to the base salary of these officers. Also, the Company has established incentive compensation plans for certain officers, which provide for a specified bonus upon the Company's achievement of certain annual sales and/or profitability targets.

The Compensation Committee grants options to officers to link compensation to the performance of the

Company. Options are exercisable in the future at the fair market value at the time of grant, so that an officer granted an option is rewarded by the increase in the price of the Company's stock. The Committee grants options to officers based on significant contributions of such officer to the performance of the Company. In addition, in determining Mr. Darby's salary and bonus for service as Chief Executive Officer, the Committee considers the responsibility assumed by him in formulating, implementing and managing the operational and strategic objectives of the Company.

15

The Compensation Committee has reviewed the Compensation Discussion and Analysis required by Item

402(b) of Regulation S-K with the Company's management. Based on such review and discussion, the Committee has recommended to the Board of Directors that the Compensation Discussion and Analysis be included in the

Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.

Audit Committee Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-Audit Services of Independent

Registered Public Accountants

The Audit Committee pre-approves all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by the independent auditors. These services may include audit services, audit related services, tax services and other services. The Audit Committee has adopted a policy for the pre-approval of services provided by the independent auditors. Under the policy, pre-approval generally is provided for an annual period and any pre-approval is detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is subject to a specific limit. In addition, the Audit

Committee may also pre-approve particular services on a case-by-case basis, which must be accompanied by a detailed explanation for each proposed service. The Audit Committee may delegate pre-approval authority to one or more of its members. Such member must report any decisions to the Audit Committee at the next scheduled meeting.

16

The Audit Committee has concluded that non-audit services provided by BDO USA, LLP were compatible with maintaining their independence.

BDO USA, LLP will have a representative at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders, who will have an opportunity to make a statement, if they should so desire.

Unless marked to the contrary, the shares represented by the enclosed proxy will be voted FOR the ratification of the appointment of BDO USA, LLP as the Company's independent registered public accountants.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR RATIFICATION OF THE

APPOINTMENT OF BDO USA, LLP AS THE COMPANY'S INDEPENDENT REGISTERED

PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS.

OTHER MATTERS THAT MAY COME BEFORE THE MEETING

As of this date, management is not aware of any matters to be presented for action at the Annual Meeting, other than those referred to in the Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders. However, the proxy form included with this proxy statement, if executed and returned, gives discretionary authority to management with respect to any other matters that may come before the meeting.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

A copy of the Company's Annual Report to Shareholders, including financial statements, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 has been provided to all Shareholders as of the Record Date. Shareholders are referred to the report for financial and other information about the Company, but such report is not incorporated in this proxy statement and is not a part of the proxy soliciting material.

MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act, as amended, requires the Company's executive officers, directors and persons who own more than ten percent of a registered class of equity securities ("Reporting Persons") to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership on Forms 3, 4 and 5 with the Securities and Exchange Commission and NYSE Amex. These Reporting Persons are required by SEC regulation to furnish the Company with copies of all Forms 3, 4 and 5 they file with the SEC and NYSE Amex. Based solely upon review of the copies of the forms received by the Company, it believes that all Reporting Persons complied on a timely basis with all filing requirements applicable to them with respect to transactions during fiscal 2011.

Matters to be Considered at the Meeting

The Board of Directors does not intend to present at the meeting any matters not referred to in the form of proxy. If any proposal not set forth in this Proxy Statement should be presented for action at the meeting, and is a matter which should come before the meeting, it is intended that the shares represented by proxies will be voted with respect to such matters in accordance with the judgment of the persons voting them.

17

Cost of Solicitation

The cost of soliciting proxies in the accompanying form will be paid by the Company. To the extent necessary in order to assure sufficient representation, the Company's officers and regular employees may request the return of proxies personally, by telephone or telegram.
