ADVANCED PHOTONIX, INC.
REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL 2008 RESULTS

Ann Arbor, MI, June 30, 2008 --
Advanced Photonix, Inc (AMEX:API) (the “Company”) today reported its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2008 results ended March 31, 2008. 

The Company's revenues were approximately flat for fiscal 2008, in line with revised third quarter guidance. Revenues were $23.2 million, a slight decrease of 1.6% from prior year revenues of $23.6 million. This decrease was primarily the result of delays in certain telecommunication and defense product shipments from the latter half of fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2009.

Non-GAAP net loss for fiscal 2008 was $(2,410,000) or $(.11) per diluted share as compared to $(287,000) or $(.02) per diluted share for fiscal 2007. This loss was primarily due to unfavorable product mix due to lower sales to the telecommunications and defense markets. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is considered non-GAAP financial information, and reconciliation between net income (loss) on a GAAP basis and non-GAAP net income (loss) is provided in the attached table.

On an EBITDA basis (GAAP earnings/loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization), the Company reported negative EBITDA of ($2,815,000) for fiscal 2008. This compares to a positive EBITDA of $40,000 for fiscal 2007. The fiscal 2008 negative EBITDA included $1.8 million of non-recurring expenses associated with the wafer fabrication consolidation and closure of the Dodgeville facility.

Gross Profit was $8.9 million (or 38% of revenue), compared to the prior year of $10.9 million (or 46% of revenue), a reduction of 18%. The Company does not believe this is a trend, and anticipates improved gross margins in fiscal 2009 as a result of the facilities consolidation that has been largely completed in fiscal 2008, the selective elimination of low margin products in the industrial sensing market, increasing revenues from the telecommunication market driven by 40G products, and the ramp up of our T-Ray 4000™ sales beginning in fiscal 2009.

Richard Kurtz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "This past year marked a year of transition for API, one from cost reduction and product development the past few years to revenue and profit growth as we enter fiscal 2009. Fiscal 2008 was a year of some successes, unexpected surprises, and delays; but overall making substantial progress in positioning API for growth in our three product platforms. Looking to fiscal 2009, we are expecting to grow revenues 25% to $29 million and report strong revenue and earnings growth starting in our first quarter. We expect that our gross margins will move closer to our strategic goal of 50% in fiscal 2009 as the benefits of our cost reduction programs in our custom optoelectronics product platform and the revenue growth in our HSOR and THz product platforms increase our capacity utilization”.
