           American Technical Ceramics Corp. Announces Full Year and
                        Fourth Quarter Financial Results

     HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 24, 2007--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 fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended
June 30, 2007.

     Net sales for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007 increased 11.4% to
$93,763,000 from $84,131,000 in fiscal year 2006. Net income amounted to
$9,725,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007, or $1.07 per common share
assuming dilution, compared with net income of $5,988,000, or $0.67 per common
share assuming dilution, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006.

     Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2007 increased 8% to $26,200,000
from $24,261,000 in the comparable quarter in fiscal year 2006. Net income
amounted to $3,528,000, or $0.38 per common share assuming dilution, for the
quarter ended June 30, 2007, compared with net income of $2,661,000, or $0.30
per common share assuming dilution, for the comparable quarter ended June 30,
2006.

     The increases in sales for the twelve and three month periods as compared
to the comparable periods of the prior fiscal year were primarily as a result of
higher sales volumes in the Company's core capacitor and Thin Film product
lines. Net income increased for the twelve and three month periods as compared
to the comparable periods of the prior fiscal year primarily due to the
increased revenues and a more favorable effective tax rate.

     Bookings for the three months ended June 30, 2007 were approximately $26
million, an increase of 4.4% over the levels achieved in the comparable period
in the prior fiscal year. The increase is primarily due to strong demand for the
Company's core capacitor product lines.

     As previously announced, on June 15, 2007, the Company entered into an
Agreement and Plan of Merger with AVX Corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary
of AVX, pursuant to which AVX will acquire the Company through a merger and the
Company will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of AVX. The consummation of the
merger is subject to a number of customary conditions, including the approval of
the Agreement and Plan of Merger by the Company's stockholders. A Special
Meeting of Stockholders to consider a proposal to approve the Agreement and Plan
of Merger has been scheduled for Friday, September 21, 2007.

     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
