ADIC Reports Breakeven First Quarter EPS As Mix, Margin Show Continued
   Strategic Improvement; Branded Sales Up 8%, OEM Sales Down 21%;
                  $15+ Million Cash from Operations

INFORMATION CORPORATION (Nasdaq:ADIC) today announced a small net loss
of $270,000, or zero cents per share, on sales of $110.8 million for
the first quarter ended January 31, 2005. The Company earned $4.8
million, or seven cents per share, on sales of $118.3 million during
the same period a year ago and $5.7 million, or nine cents per share,
on sales of $115.4 million in the immediately preceding fourth
    Gross profit as a percentage of sales for the period was 29.6
percent, the highest in the past five quarters, versus 29.0 percent
during first quarter 2004 and 29.4 percent in the preceding fourth
quarter despite modestly lower total sales. Overall first quarter
sales declined six percent and four percent from the year ago period
and preceding period, respectively. ADIC branded sales grew eight
percent versus the same quarter last year to nearly 58 percent of
total revenues. Branded sales were just over 50 percent of total sales
a year ago and 57 percent of sales in the fourth quarter ended October
31. OEM sales decreased to approximately 42 percent of sales in the
quarter, down from nearly 50 percent in first quarter 2004, as an
anticipated decline in OEM sales continued.
    The Company reported an operating loss of $1.4 million versus
operating profits of $4.7 million during first quarter 2004 and $2.2
million in the preceding fourth quarter. Net cash provided by
operating activities during the quarter totaled $15.3 million, leaving
a quarter-ending balance of cash and marketable securities of over
$245 million.
    "We never like reporting breakeven quarters but these results are
about as expected and continue to bode well for our shift toward
higher margins and branded business in a quarter that would typically
be dominated by OEM sales," according to Chair and Chief Executive
Officer Peter van Oppen. "It is always significant to report an
improved margin percentage despite lower total volume. We expect
continued volume increases in the branded portion of our business will
bring further margin improvement and profitability."
    "On the product side, the enormously popular Scalar i2000 library
grew more than 21 percent from the fourth quarter and was up
approximately 62 percent from the same period last year as it
benefited from new reseller channels and continued broad acceptance
among enterprise-class customers," he said.
    "Operating expenses were slightly higher than expected for the
quarter, particularly in R&D, as we incurred incremental expenses
related to prototyping new products for both our branded and OEM
channels," according to van Oppen. "Such costs are not likely to be
repeated and we would expect R&D costs to be somewhat lower in the
second quarter."
    Earlier this month, the Company announced the pending closure of
two R&D facilities in Ithaca, New York and Santa Clara, California.
The decision was made in an effort to optimize efficiency and customer
service. Approximately 60 Team Members will be affected, the majority
of whom are being offered relocation to another ADIC facility. Both
closures are expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of
fiscal 2005.
    This quarter is the first reporting period where ADIC has
presented revenue and cost of revenue separately for products and
services. Service revenue is derived from contracts for field support
provided to our branded-product customers and not otherwise included
in the base price of the product. Service does not include revenue or
cost associated with basic warranty support on new branded or OEM
products, but a significant amount of service revenue is directly
associated with new product sales. The Company's deferred revenue
balance reflects contracts for services to be performed in subsequent
periods and has been growing rapidly with expansion of the installed
base of enterprise-class products. Service margins are expected to
further improve as utilization rates increase for the Company's global
services personnel and parts infrastructure.
