Zoom Technologies Estimates 50% Net Sales Increase in the Third Quarter of 2007

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 3, 2007) - Zoom Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZOOM), a leading producer of modems and other communication products, today announced a preliminary estimate of its Q3 2007 net sales of $5.3 million, a 50% increase over net sales for Q3 2006 and a 24% increase over net sales for Q2 2007.

"We are encouraged by the progress we've made in 2007," said Frank Manning, Zoom's President and CEO. "Our strongest sales increases during the quarter were recorded in the US and UK, our largest markets. In those markets our sales were very strong to our large retailer customers where we have increased shelfspace in 2007. In Q3 2007 DSL modem sales showed a significant increase and, importantly, our sales of dial-up modems did not decline. As noted, the net sales results for the third quarter of 2007 are preliminary. While we do expect to show an operating loss for Q3 2007, we believe this loss will be a significant improvement over the operating loss reported for Q3 2006 and Q2 2007."

Zoom plans to officially announce net sales and earnings at the end of October. The time for the earnings release and conference call will be announced later this month.
