Answerthink Comments On Impact of Dana Corporation's Chapter 11 Filing.

MIAMI -- Answerthink, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANSR), a strategic business advisory and technology consulting firm, today commented on the anticipated impact of the March 3, 2006 Chapter 11 business reorganization filing of one of its REL Consultancy Group customers, Dana Corp., and certain of Dana's U.S. subsidiaries under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Answerthink reported that it has approximately $800,000 in accounts receivable and unbilled revenue due from Dana as of the date of the bankruptcy filing. In addition, March revenue backlog of approximately $400,000 related to ongoing Dana projects may not to be realized unless the bankruptcy court approves the payment of fees under the existing or a new contract.

Answerthink anticipates that it will continue efforts to participate in the ongoing turnaround effort at Dana, but can provide no assurances that it will be successful in these efforts. Depending on the outcome of these efforts, the impact from the Dana filing could reduce the Company's previously provided first quarter 2006 revenue guidance by as much as $400,000 and proforma earnings per share guidance by as much as one and one half cents.
