DAC Technologies Announces Third Quarter Results

LITTLE ROCK, AR--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - DAC Technologies (OTCBB: DAAT) today announced net sales for the quarter ending September 30, 2007 of $3,380,969 and net income of $146,768. This compares to net sales of $3,936,195 and net income of $273,923 for the same period in 2006. Gross profit for the quarter ending September 30, 2007 was $965,869 versus $1,287,606 for the same period in 2006. Operating expenses were $669,242 for the quarter as compared to $774,640 in 2006.

David A. Collins, Chairman and CEO, stated, "The decrease in sales is due mainly to unseasonably warm weather across the country that has affected sales for all hunting related products. Gross margins for the third quarter were 29%, as we ship our lower gross margin products such as meat grinders and game processing kits during this period. The Company announced a price increase in June 2007, with Wal-Mart agreeing to consider a price increase on gun accessory products in January 2008. The Company anticipates that this price increase will be between 4% and 6%."

Collins also stated, "Operating expenses continue to decrease in every category, with the exception of insurance costs and accounting fees, which we have little control over. Operating expenses decreased $105,398 for the quarter as compared to 2006. The Company feels it has tightly controlled expenses and will continue to do so."

Collins further stated, "The Company feels there may be some growth opportunities remaining in sporting goods or the gun accessory markets, and in fact, has received an order from Wal-Mart for a new large roll-top camping table that will begin shipping in January 2008 that will contribute $1,000,000 in revenue in 2008. The Company feels real growth lies in the Company's expertise and knowledge in overseas manufacturing to make other products in new categories. The Company has begun to manufacture a line of household cleaning products, starting with ostrich, lamb's wool and micro fiber dusters, and will expand into items such as brooms, mops, buckets, brushes and all related household cleaning items. The Company has received orders from Wal-Mart for its duster line that will begin shipping in late November, and will add $2.5 million in annual revenue. The Company has a line review meeting with Wal-Mart in December to review many other new items in household cleaning for 2008. The Company will be offering these items to other retailers and distributors throughout 2008. The Company has also entered the hardware market, manufacturing several new items, including fireplace bellows, and is developing a total line of fireplace equipment for line review at Wal-Mart in January 2008. Both the household cleaning and hardware markets are multi-billion dollar markets and the Company feels these areas offer tremendous opportunities for growth. The Company has already booked new business of $3.5 million in these areas for 2008, and looks forward to increasing this number greatly throughout 2008. Although 2007 has been a year of adjustment, we have positioned ourselves both in reduced expenses and adding new products lines in new categories that will enable the Company to get back on the path of rapid growth."

SKIT International, Ltd. filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, halting the Company's collection proceedings for the $1,650,560 judgment against SKIT. On November 13, 2007, the Company was informed that on October 29, 2007, the Supreme Court denied SKIT's appeal, ending all appeal processes available to SKIT International, Ltd. This ruling allows the Company to now resume collection proceedings against SKIT International, Ltd. to collect the $1,650,560 judgment.
