                              FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

                       ALL AMERICAN SEMICONDUCTOR REPORTS
                    YEAR-END AND FOURTH QUARTER 2004 RESULTS

         Sales Increase 31% and 16% for Year-End and Fourth Quarter 2004
                            Over Same Periods of 2003

Miami, FL - March 28, 2005 -- All American Semiconductor, Inc. (The Nasdaq Stock
Market:SEMI), a leading distributor of electronic components, today announced
its results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2004.

Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2004 were $409.4 million, up 31% from
net sales of $311.5 million for 2003. Income from operations was $8.2 million
for 2004, compared to $3.6 million for 2003. Net income was $3.2 million or $.78
per share (diluted) for 2004, compared to $546,000 or $.14 per share (diluted)
for 2003. Net income for 2004 includes other income of $1.1 million on a pre-tax
basis ($627,000 on an after-tax basis or $.15 per share (diluted)) as a result
of our prevailing in a contract litigation.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2004 increased 16% to $100.5 million, from
$86.9 million for the same period of 2003. Income from operations was $1.4
million for the fourth quarter of 2004, up from $1.2 million for the fourth
quarter of 2003. Net income was $203,000 or $.05 per share (diluted) for the
fourth quarter of 2004, compared to net income of $245,000 or $.06 per share
(diluted) for the same period of 2003. The decline in net income reflects an
increase in interest expense of $295,000 on a pre-tax basis ($167,000 on an
after-tax basis or $.04 per share (diluted)). The increase in interest expense
resulted from an increase in the Company's average outstanding borrowings during
the fourth quarter of 2004 compared to the same period of 2003.

Bruce M. Goldberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of All American,
stated, "During 2004 we grew our sales by more than 31% and further expanded our
presence overseas where we continue to see opportunities for growth. In the
second half of 2004 industry conditions began to soften. Based on current market
conditions and our sales results thus far in 2005, we expect that softness may
continue through part of 2005."

All American is recognized as the nation's 4th largest distributor of
semiconductors and the 9th largest electronic components distributor overall.
The Company has offices in 36 strategic locations throughout North America, as
well as operations in both Asia and Europe.

To the extent that this press release discusses future performance,
expectations, beliefs or intentions about our sales, markets, improved operating
efficiencies, future operating results or growth or otherwise makes statements
about opportunities for growth overseas, the continued softening of industry
conditions or the current market conditions, the statements are forward-looking
and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual
results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the statements
made. Factors that could adversely affect the Company's future results,
performance or achievements include, without limitation: weakening industry and
market conditions; a tightening by customers of their inventory levels; a
continued slowdown in sales; the continuance of a trend for electronics
manufacturing to move offshore; the level of effectiveness of the Company's
business and marketing strategies, including those outside North America and
particularly in Asia; insufficient funds from operations, from the Company's
credit facility and from other sources (debt and/or equity) to support the
Company's operations or the inability of the Company to obtain additional
financing when needed or on terms acceptable to the Company; an increase in
interest rates, including as a result of interest rate hikes by the Federal
Reserve Board, and/or an increase in the Company's average outstanding
borrowings; a reduction in the level of demand for products of its customers
including the level of growth of some of the new technologies supported by the
Company; deterioration in the relationships with existing suppliers,
particularly one of our largest suppliers; decreases in gross profit margins,
including decreasing margins


resulting from the Company being required to have aggressive pricing programs,
an increasing number of low-margin, large volume transactions, inventory
oversupply conditions and/or increases in the costs of goods; problems with
telecommunication, computer and information systems; the inability of the
Company to expand its product offerings or obtain product during periods of
allocation; the impact from changes in accounting rules; adverse currency
fluctuations; the adverse impact of terrorism or the threat of terrorism on the
economy; and the other risks and factors including those detailed in the
Company's reports on Forms 10-K and Forms 10-Q and other press releases. These
risks and uncertainties are beyond the ability of the Company to control. In
many cases, the Company cannot predict the risks and uncertainties that could
cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the
forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update
publicly or revise any forward-looking statements, business risks and/or
uncertainties.
