FRANKLIN REPORTS PROFIT FOR THREE MONTH PERIOD ENDED DECEMBER 31ST

BURLINGTON, New Jersey – February 13, 2007

– Franklin Electronic Publishers, Incorporated (AMEX:FEP) reported pre-tax income of $553,000 for its third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2006 compared with $2,106,000 in the prior year quarter. Revenue for the current period was $17,179,000 compared with $17,894,000 in the prior year period. The prior year quarter included $1,800,000 of revenue and $1,740,000 of gross margin from the renewal of a three year technology licensing agreement by the Company’s Proximity licensing division. The pre-tax income of $553,000 for the current quarter is a 51% increase from the prior period pre-tax income of $366,000, without the contract renewal revenue. Net income for the current quarter was $393,000 or $.05 per share, compared with $1,995,000 or $.23 per share, after preferred stock dividends, in the prior year period.

For the nine months ended December 31, 2006, there was a net loss of $1,544,000, or $.19 per share compared with net income of $3,017,000 or $.34 per share after preferred stock dividends, in the prior year.

Barry Lipsky, President and CEO said that, “We just returned from our best Consumer Electronics Show in recent years. Our new 12 Language Speaking Translator (TGA-490) was very well received and will commence shipments later this month. We also recently began shipping the first of four new higher priced, speaking bilingual dictionaries in Germany and the first of seven new products with new and improved content, into the United Kingdom. I expect that within the next 90 days the balance of these new products will also begin shipping.” Mr. Lipsky went on to say that “Sales of these new products and our continuing expense reduction program should lead to increased sales and a return to profitability in our next fiscal year.”
