                    Reports Third Quarter EPS of 11 Cents on
     Strong Enterprise Sales Growth; Branded Sales up 19 Percent; Operating
                          Income Improves $4.4 Million



    REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 18, 2005--Advanced Digital
Information Corporation (NASDAQ:ADIC) today announced earnings for the
third quarter ended July 31, 2005 of $7.4 million, or 11 cents per
share, on sales of $111 million versus a loss of $1.4 million, or two
cents per share, on sales of $110 million during the same quarter last
year. The Company earned $733,000, or one cent per share, on sales of
$106 million during the immediately preceding second quarter.
    Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 30.0 percent during the
third quarter, up from 26.9 percent on similar sales during the same
quarter last year and down slightly from 30.8 percent reported in the
immediately preceding quarter. Operating profit of $1.1 million was up
$4.4 million from an operating loss of $3.3 million reported in third
quarter 2004 and up more than $1 million from operating profit of
$41,000 reported for second quarter 2005.
    "We are delighted to report improving results amid further
confirmation that our strategy is working," said Chair and Chief
Executive Officer Peter van Oppen. "We saw excellent growth of our
branded products with an increase of 19 percent over third quarter
2004 and sequential growth of seven percent. Sales of enterprise-class
products were particularly strong during the period and had a positive
effect on gross margin. Margins were up more than 300 basis points
over third quarter last year and we believe the small sequential
decline in margin percentage will not disrupt this longer-term trend,"
he said.
    "Our OEM business was, as expected, down about $10 million from
last year, but was relatively flat sequentially and we are pleased to
note excellent progress on new OEM programs which should begin to
generate growth toward the end of this calendar year," according to
van Oppen. "Despite normal competitive challenges and pricing declines
on maturing OEM products, we continue to enjoy excellent and growing
relationships with our major resellers and partners," he said.
    The Company noted branded sales represented approximately 62
percent of revenue during the third quarter, while OEM sales equaled
about 38 percent of total revenue. Service revenues, which are
included in branded sales, were up nearly 23 percent over the same
period last year and approximately flat sequentially.
    Operating expenses were down $748,000 from the same quarter last
year and down $533,000 from the preceding second quarter. Lower
operating expenses were attributed to a reduction in sales and
marketing costs partially offset by increases in R&D and
administrative costs. The Company expects sales and marketing costs to
begin growing again during the current quarter.
    Other income of $2.8 million for the quarter includes a previously
announced gain of $2.5 million related to the sale of a facility in
Germany. The Company also reported a tax benefit of $3.5 million
during the quarter, reflecting recent successful conclusion of Federal
tax audits for the years 2000-2002.
    Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months
ended July 31 was $37 million. Subtracting reported cash flow from
operations through April 30 indicates third quarter cash flow from
operations was approximately $15 million.
    Total cash and marketable securities were $241 million,
approximately equal to the balance at the end of the second quarter
and up from $226 million reported at the end of third quarter 2004.
Under existing and continuing share repurchase authorizations, the
Company repurchased approximately 1.9 million shares during the third
quarter at an average price of $7.63 per share, for a total cost of
$14.3 million. Over the past six months, the Company has repurchased
approximately 2.9 million shares at an average cost of $7.88 per
share, for a total cost of $22.8 million.
