XATA Amends Third Quarter Results.

XATA Corporation today reported a revision relating to the accounting treatment of its Series B Preferred Stock dividends in its previously announced financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2004.

XATA's Series B Preferred Stock pays an annual cumulative dividend of 4% of the original issue price, payable semi-annually. The dividend is payable in additional shares of Preferred Stock, rather than cash, at the option of the holders. In addition, each share of the Preferred Stock is convertible into one share of XATA's Common Stock.

In the fiscal third quarter, at the election of the holders of the Preferred Stock, XATA issued 30,401 shares of Preferred Stock for payment of accrued dividends. Based on the increased market value of its Common Stock on the date of the dividend payment, the payment of the dividend in additional shares of Preferred Stock resulted in a non-cash deemed dividend of $101,000. This amount does not affect the Net Loss previously reported. However, in conformance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this deemed dividend increases the Net Loss to Common Shareholders to $270,000, or $0.04 per share, from the previously reported $169,000, or $0.02 per share, for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2004.
