Item 8.01 Other Events

 

The Registrant announced today that on March 27, 2006, AMTEC Corporation, its wholly owned defense subsidiary, received an $ 80.2 million award from the Department of the Army, for the second year of the Army’s five year, 40mm Systems program. Deliveries for this award will begin in 2007. The Army has also advised that it expects to award AMTEC a supplemental contract in the near future that will increase the total value of the second year’s contractual commitment.

 

As previously announced, last year based on Best Value competitive bidding, the Army selected AMTEC as one of two prime contractors responsible for supplying all requirements for the 40mm family of practice and tactical ammunition rounds for a period of five years. Subsequently, AMTEC entered into contracts with the Army totaling $99 million for the first year of the five year program, substantially all of which is scheduled for delivery in 2006. This most recent award by the Army brings the total current value of the AMTEC Systems contract to $180 million.

 

AMTEC, located in Janesville, Wisconsin, is a niche manufacturer for medium caliber ammunition programs, including specialized items such as fuzes, firing devices, initiators, load, assemble, pack (LAP) services, and cartridge cases. National Presto acquired AMTEC in 2001 and since that time has made other acquisitions in the defense industry. The Defense Division has exhibited steady growth as a result of Presto’s corporate strategy to expand its presence in the defense industry.

 

Forward looking statements in this Form 8-K are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. There are certain important factors that could cause results to differ materially from those anticipated by some of the statements made herein. Investors are cautioned that all forward looking statements involve risks and uncertainty. In addition to the factors discussed above, among the other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are the following: government defense spending and defense requirements; termination for the convenience of the government; interest rates; continuity of relationships with and purchases by the United States Government and other major customers; unexpected problems or events experienced by subcontractors, team members, or their respective suppliers or subcontractors; product mix; competitive pressure on pricing; and increases in material, freight/shipping, labor or other production costs that cannot be recouped through pricing.
