Miami, FL - March 31, 2006 -- 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, 2005.

Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2005 were $433.0 million, up 6% from
net sales of $409.4 million for 2004. Income from operations was $5.9 million
for 2005, compared to $8.2 million for 2004. Net income was $582,000 or $.14 per
share (diluted) for 2005, compared to $3.2 million or $.78 per share (diluted)
for 2004. 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 2005 increased 14% to $114.2 million, from
$100.5 million for the same period of 2004. Income from operations was $1.5
million for the fourth quarter of 2005, compared to $1.4 million for the fourth
quarter of 2004. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2005 was $4,000 or $.00
per share (diluted), compared to net income of $203,000 or $.05 per share
(diluted) for the same period of 2004.

Bruce M. Goldberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of All American,
stated, "As sales grew in 2005 we continued to invest in further expansion.
While revenues were up 14% in the fourth quarter and 6% for the year 2005, our
profitability was impacted by the addition of 35 people including several key
additions to our management team. Profitability was also impacted by an increase
in interest expense and a slight decrease in gross margins.

"During 2005 we also made a significant investment in our infrastructure,
particularly in the development of a new enterprise resource planning system
that, among other things, will enable us to support our globalization with 24 by
7 processing and multinational currencies. The new system will also enable us to
better monitor and manage assets, increase productivity, increase sales and
manage growth. The new ERP system was placed into service in February of 2006.
As expected the implementation created interruptions in our operations which
will impact our performance during the first half of 2006.

"These investments in human resources and infrastructure have positioned All
American to take advantage of the growth opportunities that we expect lie ahead.
We are encouraged with positive signs we see in our industry. These positive
signs combined with the opportunities created both from industry consolidation
and global expansion give us reason to be optimistic about the second half of
2006 after we have worked our way through our ERP issues."

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, future operating
results or investments in the growth of our business or otherwise makes
statements about the current or future industry or market conditions, trends or
developments including relating to industry consolidation, global expansion and
the implementation of our ERP system and its impact on our operating performance
in 2006, 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: a weakening of industry and market conditions and business


activity; a tightening by customers of their inventory levels; a slowdown in
sales; the level of interruption in operations and service resulting from the
implementation of our ERP system; the continuance of a trend for electronics
manufacturing to move offshore; the level of effectiveness of the Company's
business, growth, investment and marketing and expansion 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; the ability of the Company to comply with the covenants
under our credit facility and/or to obtain modifications of certain covenants
when it is not in compliance therewith; 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; significant cancellations, reductions or delays
in orders by customers; 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; the impact from changes in international trade
regulations and foreign laws; adverse currency fluctuations; the adverse impact
of terrorism or the threat of terrorism on the economy; the impact of natural
disasters on our corporate offices and other facilities; 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.
