Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Under the terms of a Letter Agreement, dated May 7, 2013 (the "Letter Agreement"), between Stavros Vizirgianakis and MISONIX, INC. (the "Company"), the Company agreed to have its board of directors (the "Board") vote to expand the Board by one position and nominate Mr. Vizirgianakis for the newly-created position on the Board.

The Letter Agreement also contains a standstill provision whereby, unless the Company consents, for a period of eighteen (18) months after the date of the Letter Agreement, Mr. Vizirgianakis will not directly or indirectly (a) acquire, offer or propose to acquire, solicit an offer to sell or agree to acquire, any beneficial ownership or record ownership of any shares of the Company's common stock, par value $.01 per share ("Common Stock"), in excess of 19.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding (the "Standstill Limit"); (b) participate in the formation of any person or group for the purpose of acquiring Common Stock in excess of the Standstill Limit; (c) solicit, or participate in any solicitation of proxies or become a participant in any election contest with respect to the Company (other than in Mr. Vizirgianakis' capacity as a member of the Board); or (d) instigate, encourage or knowingly assist any other person to take any action that would violate the foregoing (a) through (c) (the foregoing (a) through (d) collectively, the "Standstill Provision").

However, the Standstill Provision shall not be in effect (x) after the Company publicly announces that it is seeking purchasers for the Company or that the Company is otherwise exploring strategic options that, if effected or concluded, are reasonably likely to result in the events described in (y); (y) after the Company publicly announces a transaction, or an intention to effect a transaction, which would result in either (1) the sale, transfer, disposition or exclusive license by the Company to a third party of assets representing more than 40% of the consolidated earning power or assets (whether by book value or fair market value) of the Company, or (2) the persons who, immediately prior to such transaction, had beneficial ownership of 50% or more of the total voting power of the Company do not continue to beneficially own at least 50% of the total voting power of the acquiring entity, or in the case of a merger transaction, the surviving corporation; or (z) after any third party commences a tender or exchange offer, which, if successful, would result in such third party beneficially owning not less than 50% of the then outstanding Common Stock.

Additionally, the Standstill Provision does not prohibit (i) Mr. Vizirgianakis or his affiliates from acquiring the securities of another company that beneficially owns less than 5% of any securities of the Company; (ii) employees of Mr. Vizirgianakis or his affiliates from purchasing the Company's securities for their own account; (iii) Mr. Vizirgianakis from initiating discussions with or submitting proposals to the Company (including proposing waivers of the Standstill Provision), or otherwise from taking any actions, solely related to licensing, collaboration, research, development, marketing or comparable agreements, or the parties from entering into any relationship or transaction in the ordinary course of business; (iv) Mr. Vizirgianakis from taking any action that is approved in advance by the Board; or (v) Mr. Vizirgianakis from initiating discussion or making proposals to the Company, in a confidential manner, regarding any transaction, including a reorganization, business combination, merger or consolidation or sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, that would not be reasonably expected to require the Company to make a public announcement regarding any of the types of matters set forth in the Standstill Provision.
