FRANKLIN ELECTRONIC PUBLISHERS REPORTS

YEAR END RESULTS

Burlington, New Jersey – June 6, 2006

– Franklin Electronic Publishers, Inc. (AMEX:FEP) reported pre-tax net income of $2,104,000 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2006 compared with $2,307,000, in the prior year. Net income for the year was $2,012,000 or $.22 per share, after preferred stock dividends, compared with $2,403,000 or $.24 per share, after preferred stock dividends, in the prior year. Sales for the year ended March 31, 2006 were $59,622,000 compared with $62,146,000 in the prior year.

The decline in net sales of approximately $2,500,000 resulted primarily from a reduction in product sales of $6,000,000 partially offset by revenue of $3,500,000 (and gross margin of $2,300,000) from two technology development and licensing agreements in the year ended March 31, 2006. The year to year reduction in product sales consisted of $4,500,000 due to increased competition for domestic retail shelf space and the inclusion in the prior year of $1,500,000 in connection with the sale of all of the Company’s inventory in the UK to its new distributor in that region.

Net income in the prior year included a gain of $1,781,000 from the sale of the Company’s 25% interest in the French software developer Mobipocket.com S.A. and a charge of $1,531,000 for impairment in the carrying value of the Company’s license agreement for the ROLODEX® Electronics trademark.

The Company reported a net loss for its fourth fiscal quarter of $1,005,000 or $.12 per common share, compared with a net loss in the same period last year of $730,000 or $.09 per common share. For the three months ended March 31, 2006, sales were $10,178,000 compared with $10,736,000 in the same period last year.
