California Amplifier Announces Restructuring Actions

05/30/03

CAMARILLO, Calif., May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- California Amplifier, Inc. (Nasdaq: CAMP) today announced that it has taken certain restructuring actions in response to a substantial reduction in orders from the primary customers of its Satellite business unit. In response to this downturn in its Satellite business, during the fiscal 2004 first quarter ending May 31, 2003, the Company reduced its workforce by approximately 50%, which reductions included approximately 225 contract workers. After giving effect to these reductions, the Company has approximately 285 employees. In addition, the Company is in the process of consolidating its two satellite dish antenna manufacturing operations in Wisconsin into a single facility.

The Company has been advised by these Satellite customers that the principal reason for the order reductions is because the customers have accumulated excess inventory levels. The Company believes this situation will adversely affect its sales and results of operations for at least the first two quarters of fiscal 2004. The Company believes that this significant decline in Satellite product orders is a temporary condition. However, the Company is currently evaluating other potential restructuring actions that it may undertake in the event the downturn in its Satellite business persists longer than is currently expected.

Words such as "may," "will," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "could," "optimistic," "potential," "estimates" and variations of these words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
