"We are generally pleased with the performance of our antenna division in 2007," said Randall P. Marx, ARC Wireless' Chief Executive Officer. "2007 was a pivotal year as it was the first full year of our Hong Kong/China operations, which is the primary catalyst for the increase in the gross margins. The antenna division also experienced an increase to its bad debt reserve of $395,000 primarily related to one customer, which, given our antenna division's excellent track record of minimal bad debts in prior years, we do not see reserves of this magnitude going forward."

Mr. Marx continued, "During 2007 the antenna division designed, manufactured and sold three antenna categories: Broadband wireless WiMAX™ and WiFi®; GPS for telematics and asset tracking; and finally the Freedom Antenna® consumer product line. In Broadband wireless, the integrated enclosure program is well established and gaining momentum to include the international 3.5 GHz WiMAX™ frequency range. The antenna division now has 12 antennas covering the 900 MHz to 5.8 GHz frequencies. These products, when integrated, can allow easy installation of up to 19 different OEM radios.

"The cornerstone product of the mobile antenna line is the wedge-shaped combination GPS/Cellular antenna for asset management. This product provides a GPS and cellular antenna combined into one slim line profile to provide covert installation and full coverage of all cell phone frequency bands around the world. In 2007 a number of major carriers certified the product to work within their wireless networks.

"Since the redesign of the Freedom Antenna® in late 2006, several new distributors and retail customers were added in 2007. At the 2008 CES Show in January, the Company introduced two new Freedom Antenna® products: The Freedom Blade™, a smaller version ideal for laptops and wireless internet connections, and the Freedom Cruise™, a roof mount antenna for the vehicle. The website has been redesigned for quick antenna details and explanations with accurate adapter identification. The site also directs the consumer to multiple locations where Freedom Antenna® products can be purchased.

"We continue to search for one or more additional businesses that would be in the Company's interest to acquire."
