                        American Technical Ceramics Corp.
                    Announces First Quarter Financial Results


     HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 2, 2006--AMERICAN TECHNICAL
CERAMICS CORP. (AMEX Symbol: AMK), a leading manufacturer of high-performance
electronic components, including capacitors and thin film circuits for a broad
range of commercial and military applications, today announced financial results
for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2006.

     Net sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2006 increased 32% to
$23,057,000 from $17,502,000 in the comparable quarter in fiscal year 2006. Net
income amounted to $3,140,000, or $0.35 per common share assuming dilution,
compared with a net loss of $691,000, or a diluted loss per common share of
$0.08, for the quarter ended September 30, 2005.

     Management stated that the increase in net sales compared to the comparable
quarter in the prior fiscal year was due to increased activity in most of the
markets the Company serves, especially the wireless infrastructure and military
markets. Management added that the increase in net income compared to the
comparable quarter in the prior fiscal year was due in part to the increased
sales volume and in part to increased material reclamation. In addition,
management noted that the prior year's results were negatively impacted by the
attempted conversion of part of the Company's sales and manufacturing functions
to its Enterprise Resource Planning System.

     Bookings for the three months ended September 30, 2006 were approximately
$19.3 million, an increase of 9% over the levels achieved in the comparable
period in the prior fiscal year, but below those attained in recent quarters.

     Victor Insetta, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company,
stated, "The first quarter was another good quarter for ATC. Net sales and net
income were once again near record levels. In the first quarter, we experienced
a slowdown in bookings, which is not unusual in the beginning of our fiscal
year. We are monitoring this closely as the current quarter progresses. We
continue to believe that fiscal year 2007 will be a strong year for ATC."

     American Technical Ceramics Corp. designs, develops, manufactures and
markets electronic components, including ceramic multilayer capacitors and
custom thin film circuits. The Company's products are utilized in a broad range
of commercial and military applications, including wireless infrastructure,
fiber optics, medical electronics, semiconductor manufacturing equipment and
satellite equipment.
