The Registrant announced today that on August 11, 2006, AMTEC Corporation, its wholly owned defense subsidiary, received a $24.4 million supplemental award from the Department of the Army, for the second year of the Army’s five year, 40mm Systems program. Deliveries for this award will begin in 2007. This supplemental contract increases the total value of the second year’s contractual commitment with the Army to $104.6 million.
As previously announced last year, based on Best Value competitive bidding, the Army selected AMTEC as one of two prime contractors responsible for supplying all requirements for the 40mm family of practice and tactical ammunition rounds for a period of five years. AMTEC was also designated the high-volume contractor and received 55% of the total award. Subsequently, AMTEC entered into contracts with the Army totaling $99 million for the first year of the five year program, substantially all of which is scheduled for delivery in 2006. This most recent supplemental award, coupled with the $80.2 million award in February of this year, brings the total current value of the AMTEC Systems contracts with the Army to $204.5 million for the first two years of the five year program.
AMTEC, headquartered in Janesville, Wisconsin, is a niche manufacturer for medium caliber ammunition programs, including specialized items such as fuzes, firing devices and initiators. In addition, related entities provide load, assemble, pack (LAP) services, and also manufacture a wide range of medium caliber cartridge cases. National Presto acquired AMTEC in 2001 and since that time has made other complementary acquisitions in the defense industry. The Defense Division has exhibited significant growth as a result of Presto’s corporate strategy to expand its presence in the defense industry.

There are certain important factors that could cause results to differ materially from those anticipated by some of the statements made herein. Investors are cautioned that all forward looking statements involve risks and uncertainty.
