DAC Technologies Releases 2006 Financial Results

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 2, 2007 -- DAC Technologies (OTCBB: DAAT) today announced financial results for the year ended December 31, 2006. The Company reported net income of $752,838 and pretax income of $1,224,968. On a fully diluted basis, the Company earned 12 cents per share. The Company had operating income of $1,530,333, or 10% of sales revenues of $15,475,880.

David A. Collins, Chairman and CEO, stated, "These results were affected by large increases in commodity prices and a decrease in the value of the US dollar versus the Chinese RMB of 4%. This resulted in an increase in cost of goods and a decrease in gross profit margins of 6%."

Collins also stated, "Although the Company has been operating fairly lean, with only six employees in its corporate headquarters and five regular employees in its shipping department, there are areas we feel we can better control expenses. We will be looking at all areas of our operations where expenses can be controlled and establishing strict budgets in all areas. Not all operating expenses have increased in proportion to sales. Sales commissions only increased $56,708, or only 2.7% of the increase in sales of $2,124,765. I have also decided to reduce my salary by 50%, to $60,000 annually, until the Company achieves a higher level of profitability. The Company is also reviewing all product categories and will be increasing wholesale prices where it can, effective July 1, 2007, to offset the increase in cost of goods."

Collins further stated, "The Company will be focusing on increasing revenue and controlling expenses. DAC has entered the camping business and hunting accessory business with the shipping to Wal-Mart of its new camping table and Turkey hunting seat. Also, we will be shipping to Kmart five new items in the April/May timeframe. We are in the process of manufacturing a new fish fillet knife set. We are investigating all areas of new business, including sporting goods and areas outside of sporting goods, where we can use our extensive knowledge of overseas manufacturing. The Company is investigating getting into the clay pigeon target business, baseball pitching machines and putting together new kits for the household cleaning market. These are areas that we have been asked by our largest customers to investigate, or feel we can be extremely competitive in."

Collins also stated, "The Company's financial condition remains very strong. Retained earnings increased 38% and total stockholders' equity increased 17%. The company also reported total assets of $6,417,575 versus $5,499,502 for 2005. Total stockholders equity rose to $4,478,801 versus $3,825,896 in 2005."
