CalAmp Satellite Products Requalified By Key Customer.

Company Expects to Resume Shipments to Its Historically Largest Customer

OXNARD, Calif. -- CalAmp Corp. (Nasdaq:CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services, and solutions, announced today that a key Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS (Direct Broadcast Satellite) A one-way TV broadcast service from a communications satellite to a small round or oval dish antenna no larger than 20" in diameter. ) customer has requalified two of CalAmp's products, including the latest generation offering that supports expanded high-definition television high-definition television (HDTV)

As previously announced, a product performance issue affecting certain DBS equipment manufactured by CalAmp for this customer resulted in the customer returning product and putting orders on hold pending the requalification of products. Last month, CalAmp announced that it had reached a settlement agreement with this customer related to this issue. Today's announcement that the customer has requalified the products paves the way for CalAmp to resume business with this important customer.

Fred Sturm, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am very pleased to announce that CalAmp products have been requalified by the DBS service provider that has been our largest customer over the past several years. We will immediately begin working with our customer towards restarting the production process. Initially, we expect we will be shipping a mix of both revenue-generating new units and non-revenue refurbished units. We believe these shipments will likely resume during our fiscal 2009 first quarter, and we look forward to rebuilding our market position with this key customer."
