California Amplifier Reports FY 2004 First Quarter Results

CAMARILLO, Calif., June 19, 2003 --- California Amplifier, Inc. (Nasdaq:
CAMP) today reported results for its first quarter ended May 31, 2003.

Sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2004 were $18.6 million, compared to
$22.5 million for the first quarter of the prior year.  Net loss for the
first quarter was $1.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net
income of $1.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share for the first quarter of
fiscal year 2003.  First quarter results include the effects of asset
impairment charges of approximately $825,000 before income taxes related to
manufacturing equipment and inventories within the Satellite business

Fred Sturm, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "California
Amplifier continues to reshape itself to compete in what remains a difficult
market climate.  During the quarter, we undertook several restructuring
initiatives, including rationalizing our manufacturing capacity by
consolidating two North American facilities, reducing our workforce and
expanding our use of outsourced subassemblies.  While our management team
worked to contain costs and improve operating performance, we also
maintained our focus on leveraging the Company's RF design expertise to new
markets and products.  We look forward to sharing the details on our
progress as we meet significant milestones in terms of customer acceptance
and market validation."

"Despite the challenging conditions, we remain optimistic about the long-
term growth opportunities for our served markets and our balance sheet
remains strong with nearly $22 million in cash," added Mr. Sturm. "Given the
industry build-up of certain satellite products inventory and the continued
uncertainty in the wireless market, we continue to closely monitor our cost
structure and seek ways to improve the efficiency of our operations."
