On September 15, 2006, AMCON Distributing Company ("Company" or "Exchange")

continued listing standards of the American Stock Exchange ("AMEX").
Currently, the Company is not in compliance with Sections 134, 1003(d) and
1101 of the AMEX Company Guide as a result of having not filed the Quarterly
Report on Forms 10-Q for the quarters ended December 31, 2005, March 31, 2006
and June 30, 2006 because of the delays in filing its Annual Report on Form
10-K.  Additionally, the Company is also not in compliance with Section
1003(a)(i) of the AMEX Company Guide with shareholder's equity of less than
$2,000,000 and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two out
of its three most recent fiscal years.

In order to maintain its AMEX listing, the Company must submit a plan by
October 11, 2006 advising the Exchange of the action it has taken, or will
take, that would bring it into compliance with the continued listing
standards of Section 1003(a)(i) of the AMEX Company Guide no later than June
11, 2007.  Additionally, the AMEX is continuing to review a compliance plan
previously submitted by the Company on August 24, 2006 with respect to the
actions it has taken, or will take, that will bring it into compliance with
Section 134, 1003(d) and 1101 no later than November 30, 2006.  At this
point, the AMEX has deferred a decision on the August 24, 2006 plan until the
they have received the Company's plan to be submitted no later than October
11, 2006.

A copy of the press release is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1 and
is incorporated herein by reference.

exhibit) shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration
statement or other document pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as

the senior officials at the AMEX and are keeping them fully informed of the
state of affairs at the Company, and appreciate their sincere efforts to
understand the details of our business strategy.  We look forward to
maintaining our listing and long term relationship with the AMEX."
