Antigua Enterprises Inc. Announces Financial Results for Fiscal Year Ended April 30, 2007



    PEORIA, ARIZ., August 30 /CNW/ - Antigua Enterprises Inc. (Pink Sheets:  
ANTGF) (TSX VENTURE: ANE) reports financial results for the year ended April
30, 2007.

    Antigua Enterprises Inc. had a very positive fiscal year from May 2006
through April 2007. The Antigua brand maintained its momentum in the
marketplace and the Company added the Slazenger brand and the Dunlop brand to
its portfolio.

    Sales results for fiscal year 2007 were significantly ahead of previous
periods. The sales growth was driven by our Licensed Sports division and our
Golf division. The Licensed channel grew by 16% or $3.2 million in sales over
fiscal year 2006. The Golf division grew by 12% or $1.5 million in sales over
fiscal year 2006. Sales in both divisions have been fueled by new products and
new fabrications, continuing focus on outstanding customer service and in
stock inventory positions.

    As a percentage of sales, income before income taxes dipped slightly in
fiscal year 2007 as compared to prior periods. The decrease was primarily
attributable to royalty and production costs on licensed sales as well as our
investment in selling and marketing to maintain the positive momentum of the
Antigua brand and to pre-launch the Slazenger and Dunlop brands. Overall
profitability remains strong and the Company is well positioned for future
periods.

    One result of our positive profitability trend line is the Company's
decision to reverse its valuation allowance on future tax assets as it now
appears that those assets will more likely than not be utilized before
expiring. The recognition of this tax benefit had a dramatic one-time impact
on our net income for fiscal year 2007 and is not reflective of future
results. Excluding the effect of the tax benefit the Company's net income as a
percentage of sales and earnings per share are consistent with prior period
results.

    Fiscal year 2007 was successful in sales, profits, distribution growth
and brand awareness growth. Our sights are now set on new opportunities for
fiscal year 2008 with three distinctive brands to design and distribute.
