ABLEST INC. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2007 RESULTS
     TAMPA, Fla., May 14 — Ablest Inc. (Amex: AIH) today announced that revenue for the 13-week fiscal first quarter ended April 1, 2007, decreased 12.2 percent to $31.5 million from revenue of $35.9 million in the 14-week fiscal first quarter of 2006. Net loss for first quarter 2007 was $290,000 or $0.10 per diluted share compared to net income of $348,000 or $0.12 per diluted share for the first three months of 2006.
     Kurt R. Moore, president and chief executive officer, said, “The net loss for the quarter is attributable to both incremental professional fees expense approximating $626,000 relating to the Special Committee of the Board of Directors evaluation of buyout proposals and other strategic alternatives and continuing weakness in the homebuilding, furniture and consumer products markets. In addition, the first quarter of 2006 contained 14 weeks as compared with 13 weeks in 2007. Nonetheless, we expect business conditions to improve as 2007 progresses. Our new business pipelines are healthy and existing customers are indicating increasing demand for our services over the remainder of the year.”
