Aldila Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 28, 2011) - ALDILA, INC. (OTCQX: ALDA) (PINKSHEETS: ALDA) announced today net sales of $12.0 million and a net loss of $444,000 ($0.08 loss per share) for the three months ending June 30, 2011 as compared to net sales of $14.4 million and net income of $704,000 ($0.13 income per share) for the comparable period in 2010. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company's net sales were $23.3 million and a net loss of $979,000 as compared to net sales of $30.5 million and net income of $1.4 million for the comparable period in 2010.

"We continued to experience a slowdown in Golf shaft sales in the second quarter compared to the comparable period in 2010. We expect a stronger second half, especially the fourth quarter as new programs begin full production in support of the 2012 OEM product launches. Our backlog of $8.6 million as of June 30, 2011 is 28% higher than the comparable period in 2010," said Mr. Peter R. Mathewson, Chairman and CEO.

"We continue to have success on the PGA Tour. Through last week's Open Championship, Aldila shafts have been used to win 11 events on the PGA Tour, nearly 40% of all events held to date. Our shafts continue to be the most popular graphite shafts on the PGA Tour according to the Darrell Survey," said Mr. Mathewson.

"Next month we will launch our newest shaft model, the RIP'd NV™ wood shaft. This shaft has been in use and tested for months on the PGA Tour and the feedback has been very positive. This shaft is a combination of our revolutionary Micro Laminate Technology® used in the Aldila NV® and RIP Technology® used in our very popular RIP® shaft series. This unique combination of technologies produce a shaft with great feel and unparalleled control and accuracy," Mr. Mathewson said.

"Our Composite Materials Division increased sales by 3% in the quarter versus the second quarter of 2010 and increased sales 8% through the six months June 30, 2011 as compared to the same period of last year. We continue in our pursuit of several promising programs that are non recreational and require qualifications that are time consuming but offer significant sales volume potential," said Mr. Mathewson.

"Our Archery business is well on its way through the transition process of moving manufacturing from a Mexico facility to our Vietnam factory. We expect to have almost all production activities moved to Vietnam by the end of the third quarter. As expected, we have encountered shortages of some product as we work our way through this transition. We expect to have this corrected in the next couple of months as we scale up the production. We have been pleased with the quality of the product produced from our Vietnam facility," said Mr. Mathewson.

Aldila will host a conference call at 5 P.M. Eastern Time, on July 28, 2011 with Peter R. Mathewson, Chairman and CEO and Scott M. Bier, Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, to review Aldila's Second Quarter 2011 financial results.
