Andrew Corporation is changing prices for its HELIAX(R) products to reflect the higher material costs for metals and petrochemicals used in manufacturing the company's market-leading cables, connectors, jumpers, and accessories.

Net prices for most HELIAX products will increase by an average of eight percent, effective August 1, 2005. In addition, pricing terms that exist under current customer contracts will be reviewed.

"With crude oil and copper prices near all-time highs, Andrew will continue to minimize the impact of rising commodity costs on our customers through innovative process improvements and hedging programs," said John DeSana, group president of antenna and cable products, Andrew Corporation. "This partial recovery of higher material costs for our industry-leading HELIAX products will enable Andrew to continue to provide products that exceed our customers' quality and performance requirements."

Concurrent with the price increase, Andrew Corporation is simplifying the price structure for its HELIAX products. The new structure will bring list prices more in line with the actual prices customers pay for HELIAX products. Revised list prices will be available beginning August 1, 2005 at www.andrew.com/catalog38/price_list.aspx and from any Andrew sales office or authorized distributor worldwide.
