RICHARDSON, TEXAS (November 10, 2004)

– TeraForce Technology Corporation (OTCBB: TERA) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2004.

Financial Results

Net revenues in the third quarter of 2004 amounted to $1,439,000 versus $1,699,000 in the third quarter of 2003. Operating loss for the three months ended September 30, 2004 amounted to $1,143,000 versus an operating loss of $1,611,000 in the same period of 2003. For the first nine months of 2004 net revenues amounted to $8,414,000 and operating profit totaled $130,000. This compares with net revenues of $4,037,000 and an operating loss of $4,762,000 in the first nine months of 2003. The results for the first nine months of 2004 reflect product shipments of $5,014,000 and license fees of $3,400,000.

Engineering and development expenses in the third quarter of 2004 were $512,000 as compared to $582,000 in the third quarter of 2003. Selling and administrative expenses decreased to $1,101,000 in the third quarter of 2004 versus $1,171,000 in the third quarter last year.

Herman Frietsch, chairman and chief executive officer of TeraForce Technology Corporation commented, “The slight dip in net revenues for this period, following quarterly increases, reflects the variability in order flow during the early stages of production stemming from our design wins. The business we anticipate from design wins has not diminished. However, as we have indicated previously, variability will continue to be seen as we progress into more consistent production phases.

“Our base of business continues to grow and we are increasing our number of new program pursuits. Our recent transition to a direct sales force coupled with our new products are beginning to make a significant contribution to our growth expectations.

“From a broader perspective, the overall political and budgetary environment appears very promising for our target segments of the defense and homeland security markets. In addition we are seeing considerable consolidation activity within our industry. While this activity may present certain challenges, we believe it provides us with important opportunities that we can exploit effectively.”
