Andrew Corporation has revised its financial statements for the 2003 and 2004 fiscal years and for the first three quarters of fiscal 2005 in response to the three issues raised during a periodic Securities and Exchange Commission review which were previously disclosed in the company's last quarterly earnings announcement on October 27, 2005.

Two of the three issues--the timing of a $19.8 million product recall charge in 2005 and a change in the company's segment reporting--have no impact on the company's full year net income, earnings per share, or financial position as previously reported. The third issue relates to the timing of revenue recognized on a customer contract for the sale of geolocation products, which Andrew acquired from Allen Telecom in July 2003. The aggregate impact on revenue over the period July 2003 through September 2005 was a reduction of $12.5 million, with a decrease in earnings of $0.01 per share in fiscal 2003 and $0.02 per share in fiscal 2004. In addition, the company has recorded an increase of $0.01 per share in fiscal 2005, relative to the earnings originally reported on October 27, 2005.

Complete details and restated financial results for all affected periods are contained in Andrew's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2005, filed with the SEC yesterday, and is available at
