    Adeptron expands west and into the USA with proposed acquisition of
    San José based PCA

    TORONTO, April 10 /CNW/ - Adeptron Technologies Corporation (ATQ: TSX)
("Adeptron" or the "Company"), a specialist at delivering integrated product
solutions and support to the global technology and electronics industry,
announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire all of the outstanding
shares of Pacific Circuit Assembly, Inc. ("PCA"). Based in San José,
California, PCA provides full electronics manufacturing services, which
include both surface mount and pin through-hole board assembly along with test
and system-build capabilities. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006,
PCA had sales of approximately $US 3.2 million. PCA's sales are generated by
the provision of labour and machine assembly services and have generally not
included the sales of raw materials.
    F. Michael Marti, President and CEO of Adeptron commented, "We are
extremely pleased to have PCA, its management team and employees join Adeptron
as our west-coast operation. The capabilities and skill sets that PCA brings
to Adeptron position us extremely well as we begin to penetrate the California
market place. The acquisition of PCA provides Adeptron with its first facility
in the USA and is expected to be accretive to the Company's earnings."
    Marti continued, "For PCA's current customer base, Adeptron provides an
expanded global supply chain and turnkey service offering. The revenue
potential of this acquisition should be enhanced by allowing the possibility
of converting some portion of PCA's current labour-only sales to turnkey and
by greatly expanding the potential customer base to include those who desire
turnkey services."
    Peter Del Brocco, founder and CEO of PCA, added, "This is a tremendous
opportunity for all of us at PCA. We are joining a firm with the same
commitment to quality and superior customer satisfaction that has been our
hallmark at PCA since our inception. By joining Adeptron we will enhance and
expand our array of service offerings to current and future customers. We are
particularly excited by the imminent prospect of being able to offer full
turnkey manufacturing solutions and a migration path to lower cost solutions
in Asia."
    The total purchase price for PCA is $US 2.25 million. Adeptron expects to
finance the majority of the proposed acquisition of PCA using internal
financing resources and the remainder by the issuance of shares to the
principals of PCA. The transaction is subject to customary conditions and the
completion of satisfactory due diligence. It is anticipated that the proposed
acquisition of PCA, if finalized, will close within 45 days.
