                POWAY, CA., March 2, 2005 — Aldila, Inc. (NASDAQ:NMS:ALDA) reported net sales of $12.4 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2004 as compared to $9.8 million in the same quarter of 2003.  The Company reported net income of $1.6 million ($0.29 earnings per share-fully diluted) for the fourth quarter of 2004 as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million ($0.26 loss per share) in the same quarter of 2003.  Included in the fourth quarter of 2003 was an impairment charge of $2.2 million (pre-tax) related to the Company’s carrying value of its investment in Carbon Fiber Technology LLC (“CFT”), a joint venture limited liability company.  Excluding the impairment charge and related income tax benefit of $183,000, the 2003 fourth quarter net income would have been $762,000 ($0.16 earnings per share).

                For the year ended December 31, 2004 net sales were $52.8 million as compared to $37.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2003.  The Company reported net income of $9.3 million ($1.77 earnings per share-fully diluted) for 2004 as compared to a net loss of $1.7 million ($0.35 loss per share) in 2003.
